DECLINO “Terra bruciata – Discografia completa” gatefold 2xLP and THE CORPORATE WHORES  “Revenge of the whores – complete session” LP: preorders are OPEN!

Posted in Declino, Pre Orders, Releases, The Corporate Whores on October 12th, 2017 by foadmaster

With this month’s double aggression we’re finally returning to a well-tested ground in the history of FOAD‘s releases: ’80s Italian Hardcore.  If you look back at our previous works you can find the entire first decade’s discography of RAW POWER, complete anthologies by NERORGASMO, BLUE VOMIT, CRASH BOX, PEGGIO PUNX, EU’S ARSE, UPSET NOISE and many more. And we’re happy to announce a fundamental addition to these series: nothing else but DECLINO, with the ultimate and definitive double LP discography compiling all their existing recordings dating from 1983 to 1985.  This release means a lot to us, not only because we consider them as one of the best expressions of pure Hardcore from those flaming early days, but also because F.O.A.D. was founded in Torino, and DECLINO were one of the most important names shaping our area’s HC style. And as an interesting match to this anthology we picked another pioneering band delivering an even faster and more deranged brand of HC…Tucson Arizona’s THE CORPORATE WHORES with their cult demotape “The revenge of the whores” (1983) for the first time on vinyl, and totally complete. For those who aren’t familiar with this obscure outfit, they were delivering some sick, proto-blastbeat friendly Hardcore/Noise back in 1983 and if you’re thirsty for anything that was ultrafast and extreme before Napalm Death, Siege, Repulsion and Heresy, then this will make your day! So it’s time for new FOAD preorders, and our recipe for October consists of:  DECLINOTerra bruciata – discografia completa” 2xLP and THE CORPORATE WHORESRevenge of the whores – complete session” LP!!  As we always recommend, act fast if you want to get the limited colored vinyl version because in most cases they get sold out on preorder!!

More in detail about each release:

DECLINO “Terra bruciata – discografia completa” 2xLP  (F.O.A.D. 134)

The most exhaustive and complete DECLINO discography release ever made! Formed in 1982 in Torino (also hometown of Negazione, Kollettivo, Blue Vomit, Nerorgasmo and many more), DECLINO stands as one of the most important names in the legendary first wave of Italian Hardcore, or call it “the furious years” or specifically for Torino, the “wild bunch”. They were on the maps in the early MRR reports about Italy’s Punk/HC scene and also appeared in the fundamental “P.E.A.C.E.” 2xLP compilation on R Radical Records!  Their style was a highly energetic clash of speed, rage and creative song-writing. The band featured members that also played in cult acts such as Negazione, Indigesti, 5° Braccio etc… and they were definitely among the first in their area to develop a mature style that was leaning more towards the intensity of total Hardcore than on Punk’s rawness. This anthology includes all their existing studio recordings, consisting of: the debut 7″ (1983), “Mucchio selvaggio” split tape/LP with Negazione (1984), 3 unreleased tracks (1984), “Eresia” 12″ (1985) and a complete soundboard live recording (Denmark, 1985) never released before in its entirety… for a total of 39 songs!

Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a 11″x11″ booklet glued on the inner panel, collecting a huge selection of photos, flyers, artworks and all the lyrics. And included in this first pressing you’ll also find a poster with the discarded art for “Eresia” 12″ that has never been published to date!! Compared to the previous collective works, “Terra bruciata” is the definitive and most complete one, each session / recording included is totally complete! If you’re a maniac of rapid, straightforward Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC in general, this is an absolute must!

Available in 2 different versions

Die-hard edition of 150 copies on ultra-clear vinyl

Black vinyl limited to 550 copies


THE CORPORATE WHORES  “Revenge of the whores – complete session” LP (F.O.A.D. 133)

Going through countless discussions on blast-beat generators and pioneering early 80’s bands adopting the hyperfast formula later consolidated in Grindcore, Powerviolence and other full-on-speed sonic extremes, the “Revenge of the whores” demo 1983 was what we would call an “obscure obscurity” mentioned by few, but totally deserving to be brought under spotlight. Jan of AGATHOCLES often quoted it as an influence in his early days into radical HC/Noise and reading the “Good bad music for bad, bad times” blog made by Erich (FEAR OF GOD) there was an entire post about it, from which we’d like to highlight this introduction: “If you wanted to be the coolest of the cool, you’ve had to have the REVENGE OF THE WHORES demotape and knew, that SIEGE weren’t the first.” Back in the tape-trading years and before the internet era, this band was surrounded by complete mystery, their only tape wasn’t even circulating with a cover/sleeve, just a handwritten sheet with tracklisting, and many thought that their name was “Revenge of whores” and not THE CORPORATE WHORES as it actually is. So finally, with this FOAD release we’re making justice to these pioneering ultra-fast and noisy HC psychos hailing from Tucson, Arizona. Here you get the complete “Revenge of the whores” 1983 session (24 SONGS!) for the first time on vinyl freshly ripped from the masters provided by the band.

Side A includes that mayhemic bloodfeast of speed that put them on the proto-grindcore charts: think of SIEGE or early D.R.I. running even faster and noisier! Side B shows the versatility of their style going through more experimental and nonsense lo-fi Punk territories. Comes with a 8 page booklet including a detailed history, lyrics and flyers.  If you’re looking forward to unearth the rarest and most obscure early day blasting noise/HC outfits, THE CORPORATE WHORES need to be added to your collection right there close to names like Cyanamid, Brigada Do Odio, Chemotherapy, S.L.O.D. and so on!

VULGARITY KIDS “s/t” LP, ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP and “House of gore +” gatefold LP up for preorders!!!

Posted in Asocial, Pre Orders, Releases, Vulgarity Kids on September 8th, 2017 by foadmaster

Back from a frantic summer with many festivals and the madness of 8 FOAD releases in 3 months, here we are again with a triple bloodbath of pure mindblowing Hardcore from Japan and Sweden!! Our legacy with the Scandicore masters ASOCIAL keeps strong as we are releasing their 3rd and final chapter that completes the reissues of their 80s/90s discography, and then a big surprise… their brand new album freshly recorded in spring 2017 right after some killer comeback shows that totally destroyed! And moving to the Far East, as you’ve seen in the past few years, we always keep an eye open on Japanese Hardcore and the immense underground of obscure treasures still hidden there… This time we chose to unearth the VULGARITY KIDS, a thrashing HC unit that delivered just one 8″ flexi back in 1987 that according to us is a little classic in its style. So FOAD‘s aggression for September consists of: VULGARITY KIDS “s/t” LP and ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP and “House of gore +” gatefold LP. Pre-orders start now, we’ll start to ship from September 21st 2017. As we always remind, act fast if you want to catch the die-hard versions, as they never last too long!

More in detail about each release:

VULGARITY KIDS “s/t  LP (F.O.A.D. 135)

Another gem of obscure ’80s Japanese Hardcore on F.O.A.D. Records.  Hailing from the area of Utsunomiya, Tochigi, this shortly lived outfit delivered the traditional sound of fast, no frills Japanese Hardcore of the late 80s that at times recalls the early Systematic Death EPs and 12″. This LP (silk screened on side B) collects their hard to find flexi 8″ on Asia Record recorded in 1987 and a song from “Enjoy your youth by this Hardcore sampler” mastered from the original reels and gets released in time for their comeback show in memory of their former guitarist Moochin that passed away 30 years ago in fall 1987. Comes with special OBI strip, a fanzine styled booklet with liner notes, photos and flyers.

VULGARITY KIDS are yet another proof that when it comes to Japanese Hardcore you don’t have to strictly focus only on the classic names because there is an endless panorama of demos, rare records and obscurities that hides some very high quality bands. It’s an interesting challenge for us to unearth them and bring them back to light on releases like this!

Available in two different versions:

Die-hard edition (magenta vinyl) limited to 100

Black vinyl limited to 200


ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 132)

Sweden’s Hardcore pioneers blast back after 23 years!  “Död åt kapitalismen” is their first recording since 1994 and as expected it takes no prisoners… 10 songs of raw and brutal HC combing the traditional Scandinavian approach with a solid d-beat structure. It takes all the best features of their previous works to push them to a new devastating stage… speed, anger, vitriolic vocals and a solid production makes this a total scandicore headsmasher for fans of Anti Cimex, Crude SS, Totallitär, Avskum and so on. Comes in a gatefold sleeve.

Available in two different versions:

Die-hard edition on half’n’half red-black vinyl limited t 100

Black vinyl limited to 400


ASOCIAL “House of gore +” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 131)

The third and final installment that completes the ASOCIAL vinyl reissues to make their entire 1982-1994 easily available for all you Scandicore psychos. This LP collects the following: “How could Hardcore be any worse” (split tape with The Bedrövlers, 1984… THEIR FASTEST RECORDINGS EVER!) plus some extra unreleased stuff, songs from “Hardcore for the masses” and “Attack is now suicide” v.a. LPs (both from 1988), the “House of gore” 7″ (1992) and their songs from “Distortion to hell” v.a. CD (1994). All this stuff has been mastered from the original reels and mastertapes.

This collection shows the band’s progression from the early, out of control ultra Hardcore annihilation to a more d-beat paced (as a matter of fact, a Discharge cover is included) and even metallic HC approach, still keeping the aggression and power that has always been a trademark in their sound. 25 tracks. Housed in a glossy gatefold sleeve with silver hot-foil stamping.

Available in two different versions:

Die-hard edition on splatter vinyl (blue with black speckles) limited to 100

Formed in Mexico D.F. in 1987 from the same background that gave birth to noisy HC terrorists such as M.E.L.I., Massacre 68, Xenofobia, Sedicion, GPK… Atoxxxico probably stands as the most recognized outfit from that deranged scene. This special release to celebrate their 30th year anniversary includes the complete early “TV Demo 1988“, the Demo 1993 recorded in LA, 6 songs recorded live in D.F. in 1989 and an identical reproduction of their rare “Punks de mierda” 7″ (1987) a classic of raw aggressive Mexican HC very sought after by collectors.

WEHRMACHT “The complete beer soaked collection 1985-1989” 6 X tape boxset and SLANDER “Calunnia” 12″ …pre-orders start NOW!!

Posted in Pre Orders, Releases, Slander, Wehrmacht on June 26th, 2017 by foadmaster

As we’re approaching the end of June, the time is finally coming for our open air summer festival “United as one Part. 3“, with exclusive Italian appearences by D.R.I., Wehrmacht, General Surgery, Deafness By Noise also keeping the spotlight on local heroes such as Slander and First Brawl. To make this event even more unique and interesting we have prepared two special relaases for 2 of the bands performing there… Online preorders for both are starting now, they will be obviously premiered and first sold at the festival, we’ll start to ship them around July 10th as soon as we’ll be back from OEF.  The bands that we chose for our United As One focused assault are Portland’s undisputed pioneers of shark endorsed ultra-fast Thrashcore madness… no one else than our shoebros WEHRMACHT, with a limited 6x Tape boxset edition of the highly acclaimed “Beer soaked collection 1985/1989” that we originally released on vinyl 3 years ago…

… and then the new 12″ by one of the most promising revelations of today’s Italian Hardcore scene… SLANDER!  If you thought that Venice, California was the only Venice that needs to be mentioned when you talk of HC, now you also have to cope with the franticly growing scene of the original Venice city (Venezia) in the north East of Italy.. in the last decade it delivered a bunch of good underground acts and has consolidated an unbelievably strong base also thanks to the cult “Venezia Hardcore Festival” that brings together thousands of HC maniacs from all over Europe.  The band that better represents this manic Hardcore rebirth is with no doubt SLANDER, that have quickly reached a solid follow up after a demo, an EP, a split LP and a full length album, also thanks to countless tours and their completely insane live performances. This new 12″ is the final punch in the face showing their power and intensity.


So preorders for WEHRMACHTThe beer soaked collection 1985/1989” 6x tape boxset limited to 200 and SLANDERCalunnia” one-sided 12″ limited to 300 copies are up now.  Once again: they will be premiered at our festival on June 30th, you will have to be patient on the final shipping date as from next week we’ll be at Obscene Extreme in the Czech Republic and we’ll start to ship this batch of preorders and the next one (to be announced really soon.. stay tuned!) after July 10th.

POISON “Höelle und Vernichtung – Complete discography 1984/1987” Boxset: pre-orders start now!!

Posted in Poison, Pre Orders, Releases on June 8th, 2017 by foadmaster

HÖELLE UND VERNICHTUNG” is exactly the sentence that can best describe the monsterwork that we are about to introduce. It means “hell and annihilation” in German and it’s also… the ultimate, total POISON discography boxset on F.O.A.D. Records!! Pre-orders for this gargantuan (hell)hammer-in-the-face (weighing 2 and half Kgs!) are up now, there is a die-hard edition on splatter vinyl including an extra back patch and poster that is expected to sell out very quickly, so be fast!

All the existing POISON recordings from 1984 to 1987 + an extensive choice of unreleased material, over 5 hours of pure infernal armageddon from one of the most ancient pioneering Black/Death Metal hellhounds of the mittel-European scene of the 80s. To make things fair for those who had already got our previous POISON vinyl releases, this boxset is somehow completing the series because “Sons of evil“, “Bestial Death” and “Awakening of the dead” on it are featured on CD only, while all the rest (that has mostly never been released before) is included on LP. Quoting the band’s master-mind of evil Uli “Angel Of Death” Hildenbrand: “When F.O.A.D. contacted me the first time to discuss the possibility of a complete re-release of all those ancient tapes, I basically thought they were nuts – and told them so – however; through sheer tenacity they managed to convince me that it was about time for a really professional overworking of the material – hence the re-release of the first 3 demos and now THIS: basically everything you always wanted to know about POISON but were afraid to ask for! Seriously; this box has it all – the best sounding-material available, all lovingly remastered and re-designed (with a little help from yours truly); all of it taken from the original masters, some of it never released before! Even I myself was amazed by the results – which is something that happens very rarely – so, if you are a fan and you want to experience the story of the band from beginning to end, here is your perfect time machine! So if you’re ready for some 5-6 hours of poisonous pleasures – IMMERSE YOURSELF!

This monster comes in an embossed deluxe box and includes 5 x LPs, 2 x digipack CDs and a 60 page hard cover book collecting all their existing photos, flyers, artworks, ‘zine excerpts and more! Every recording has been ripped from the master-tapes provided by the band and maniacally restored and remastered. More in detail about the contents:

LP 2+3 (gatefold) : Full 1986 Live set in rehearsal (previously unreleased)

MÖRBIT (Morbid) “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP and UNKNOWN DEATH “Demo 1987” LP preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Morbid, Pre Orders, Releases, Unknown Death on May 10th, 2017 by foadmaster

After the deafening Grind assault delivered few weeks ago with Looking For An Answer’s new album “Dios Carne” it’s time to return to darkness and evil with two vinyl offerings that lean more towards the death-tinged Metal side of F.O.A.D. Records

The first of them is not just another F.O.A.D. release, it’s the celebration of the 50th birthday of a friend, a great source of inspiration for thousands of maniacs and a diehard underground pioneer of the Scandinavian Metal scene: no one else by Jon “Metalion” of the legendary SLAYER mag! To make this anniversary special, we decided to release on LP the ultra rare rehearsal of MÖRBIT – the real MORBID tribute, a special band featuring members of WATAIN, NIFELHEIM, DISMEMBER, MERCILESS and ENTOMBED playing MORBID classics in a totally cursed and ominous mood, with a touch that only such titans of the Swedish Black/Death Metal scene can deliver. Scroll down for a detailed description and tracklist of this unmissable necrodead-ly madness. Three different versions available: a “Metalion bday” ultra-limited version on clear red vinyl with extra poster strictly limited to 50 copies (the most already reserved by friends and band members, only a handful on sale via and a few in Japan exclusively available at Record Boy Store!!), a splatter vinyl version limited to 100 and a regular black one limited to 320.

The second sonic crime of the month consolidates the inexhaustible bond between FOAD and the absolute masters of LA based Grindcore, the Terrorizer / Nausea / Majesty family! 2 years ago, during a short stay in LA, we visited our friend Carlos “Cosmo” Reveles, bass player in Majesty, Nausea and Terrorizer LA and found this obscure and virtually non-existent tape of UNKNOWN DEATH, the band that Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado had shortly before starting the legend that we all know. We brought the tape to Italy and after restoring and mastering it at Toxic Basement we discussed about a very limited vinyl release… so here it is, a super-rarity that only a handful of lucky tape traders has heard since now finally available on vinyl in the best possible sound quality. UNKNOWN DEATHDemo 1987” LP, 12 tracks of crude raw Death Metal clearly inspired by “Scream bloody gore” era DEATH (they even have a song called “Beyond my infernal grave“.. reminds you of something?). This is limited to 300 copies, 200 on black and 100 on clear beer-yellow vinyl.

More in detail about each release..:

– MÖRBIT (Morbid)  “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP (F.O.A.D. 124)

In 2011 the Swedish Black Metal cult MORBID released the gigantic sampler “YEAR OF THE GOAT“. To celebrate that a very special band was put together in order to perform some MORBID classics live for a selected audience. The band went under the name MÖRBIT and consisted of legendary musicians of the Swedish Extreme Metal scene. Erik of WATAIN on vocals, Tyrant of NIFELHEIM on bass, David of DISMEMBER on guitar, Erik of MERCILESS on guitar and Stjärnvind on drums (ENTOMBED, MERCILESS etc.). The night before the actual concert the band had a final rehearsal at the WATAIN’s “wolf lair” which also was the funeral for Metalion’s SLAYER MAGAZINE. Now a few years later METALION turns 50 and in order to celebrate this unholy event it was decided between all members and of course MORBID & METALION to release a really rare recording of the final rehearsal before the gig the day after. With the help of Erik WATAIN and FOAD Records this was made possible! Get ready to freeze to death in the Swedish Black Metal inferno with these raw and morbidly evil classics:

1) My dark subconscious
2) Disgusting Semla
3) Wings of funeral
4) From the dark

Available in 3 different versions:





– UNKNOWN DEATH  “Demo 1987” LP  (F.O.A.D. 122)

UNKNOWN DEATH, one of the first bands previously had by legendary grindcore masters Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado, before Peter Sandoval joined forces. Before Pete there was a local drummer, Fish Perez who’d been a friend in the L.A. scene for several years. With heavy influences in the likes of Death, Bathory, Venom, early Napalm Death, etc., Unknown Death began making noise in the mid 80’s in any downtown warehouse that would house them. During this period they recorded their debut 12 song demo tape, self-titled UNKNOWN DEATH which was well received locally. Unknown Death seldom played at this point, rehearsals began to dwindle, and members became laxed. A short time later during a missed rehearsal by Fish, Pete was brought to Unknown Death’s rehearsal by a mutual friend and was asked to jump in on drums. Immediately after, Oscar & Jesse knew they had found a drummer to equal their raw talent and energy. Shortly thereafter, Unknown Death would split due to differences and TERRORIZER would be born to become one of the most influential bands in grindcore history ….  Before TERRORIZER, before NAUSEA, before MAJESTY, experience the ultra raw Death Metal aggression of LA’s UNKNOWN DEATH!! Freshly ripped from the best sounding tape provided by band members, restored and mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio.
