JUNTESS  “Under the red moon” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 121)

Another hidden gem of traditional Japanese Hardcore on F.O.A.D. Records! Originally self-released on CD back in 1991 and now for the first time on vinyl, this spectacular album has all the features of an early 90s Japanese HC classic: rage, speed, introspective lyrics and an astonishing guitar work made of catchy riffs and some of the most memorable solos of the time, all this backed by a really solid production.  After delivering this great full length and few 7″s the band broke up, some members went on playing with other legendary acts such as Liberate, Crow, Hazard and more.  Specially remastered for vinyl, housed in a gatefold LP including lyrics, flyers, artworks of the time.  Recommended if you like Death Side, Bastard, Poison Arts, Nightmare and other classic Japanese HC ragers of that kind.

ATOXXXICO “Demos, rarities + Punks de mierda Ep”  gatefold LP + 7″ + booklet  (F.O.A.D. 128)

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:

LP1 : “Into the abyss” (remastered by Uli Hildenbrand)

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

LP 4 : The First Gig 1985: “Live Terror” (extended version featuring the complete show, as the ’80s cassette edition wasn’t complete)

LP 5 : Final Gig 1987 and earliest rehearsals 1984 (previously unreleased, including songs that were completely unknown to date)

CD 1 : “Sons Of Evil” Demo 1984 + 5 unreleased tracks from rehearsals 1984 (also including a Venom cover)

CD 2 : “Bestial Death” Demo 1985 + “Awakening Of The Dead” Demo 1986

Available in two different versions :

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.

LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER “Dios Carne” gatefold LP and digipack CD… preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Looking For An Answer, Pre Orders, Releases on April 14th, 2017 by foadmaster

FOAD‘s war-machine never stops! Just 3 days since our last announcement and here we are again, this time with a pulverizing Grindcore threat… If you thought that our label is all focused on the past never keeping an eye open towards current bands you’re wrong because what we’re introducing now is the brand new full length album by one of the most promising units of today’s Grind scene… our friends LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER!

After their devastating “Eterno treblinka” on Relapse Records and some line-up changes they’re back to obliterate your auditory system with a bludgeoning assault of merciless brutality. “Dios carne” takes the sickest elements of Grindcore milestones such as Repulsion, Unseen Terror, early Napalm Death and blends them with a granitic old school Death Metal imprint… think of Autopsy, Massacre, Bolt Thrower. Add a powerful, analog-feel production and the caustic vocal delivery of Santi (also growling in Nashgul) and you get a picture of the bloody aftermath that you’ll face! Here’s a preview of what you can expect CLICK HERE

Dios Carne” is available on pre-order in 3 different versions:  die-hard gatefold LP on splatter vinyl limited to 100 copies (act fast!) / regular gatefold LP on black vinyl limited to 400 copies / digipack CD with 8 page booklet. Pre-order your copy now following the links below, we’ll start to ship from April 28th 2017.

More in detail:

Spanish Grindcore veterans LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER return with their first full length in 6 years. “DIOS CARNE” is a visceral sonic descent into the deepest layers of carnism and human depravity. Ethically aware, yet fucking pissed and ready to devour the opposition, LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER have unleashed their most focused collection of anti-harmonic orchestrations to date. Straight to the throat grindcore with a heavy old school death metal influence, that promises to unrelentingly punish the listener. “DIOS CARNE” is not just a concept album, but a musical statement abundant in blast beat precision that will simultaneously satisfy speed freaks and obliterate brain matter.

Die-hard splatter vinyl (white and bluish speckles on black)

Posted in Mad Conflux, Pre Orders, Releases, S.L.O.D. on March 28th, 2017 by foadmaster

Just in time to recover from the avalanche of brain squeezing Thrash that we delivered few weeks ago with Cryptic Slaughter and Attomica, and we’re back again with another onset of speed + sonic violence… And with immense pleasure we’re proud to introduce one more Japanese Hardcore discography (after delivering the likes of NAPALM, The GEROGERIGEGEGE, TOXIC NOISE and Q.O.P.) with the double LP version of MAD CONFLUX‘s “Crazy Action Party“, a 43 song beast of the fastest and most intense Japanese Hardcore for all you maniacs loving bands like Outo, Gauze, Systematic Death, Lipcream, S.O.B. and so on… And to keep things equally noisy and extreme we have decided to match them with an ultra-obscure cult of the pioneering proto-grind era… one of the very first Death Metal (at blasting speeds) atrocities to appear on the Yugoslavian territory back in 1986… SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH!!  So get ready for the massacre: MAD CONFLUXCrazy action party” gatefold 2xLP and S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP are up for preorders!! Both releases will be premiered at FOAD records‘ stand in Utrecht/Holland at the unmissable Mega Record Fair on April 8-9 and we’ll start to ship all orders on April 11th. As usual our advice is to act fast if you want to catch the limited mailorder versions on colored vinyl as they’re expected to sell out quickly!

Now more in detail about each release:

MAD CONFLUX “Crazy action party” 2xLP gatefold + booklet (F.O.A.D. 120)

Another crazy Japanese Hardcore release on FOAD RecordsMAD CONFLUX were one of the greatest thrashing HC units to come out from the Yokosuka/Yokohama area… just like SYSTEMATIC DEATH, RAISE CAIN, TOXIC NOISE, PILE DRIVER, BATTLE ATTACKER and many more. These psychos terrorized the masses from 1985 to 1991 delivering some of the fastest and most addictive HC with that skate-thrash vibe that made the late ’80s/early ’90s Japancore scene so unique and unmatched. Their discography is fragmented on several compilation appearances and the hard to find split flexi 7″ (1987) with JANKY.  They self-released a limited discography CD in 2005 that got instantly sold out. This double LP includes all their existing studio and live recordings (43 songs!) for the first time on vinyl, scrupulously remastered from the best sounding sources to properly incinerate your eardrums. It comes in a highly deluxe packaging with weighty gatefold sleeve and ’80s fanzine styled booklet including photos, gig flyers and biographical notes written by their guitarist Ori, also playing in PILE DRIVER and in the current line-up of the mighty DEATH SIDE!!

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on dirty white vinyl with red splattering limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 300 copies


S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP (F.O.A.D. 123)

Hailing from ex Yugoslavia, SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH stand as one of the most obscure and extreme Death/Thrashcore hordes surfaced in the mid ’80s, worshipped by tape trades of the time as one of the fastest and sickest blasting monstrosities of the pre-grindcore era! They are considered as probably the earliest Death Metal act from Slovenia (and all ex-Yugo) and their first and only demotape was a sort of virtually non-existent cult mentioned on a handful of ‘zines and rarely quoted by the later generation of Noise/Grind pioneers (Jan Agathocles among them) among the oldest incarnations of the blastcore formula. Musically, they remind of South American slaughterers like BLASFEMIA, PARABELLUM, HOLOCAUSTO but way faster and more chaotic, with a sinister feeling of evil and gloom surrounding them.

Quoting Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit Mag / Decibel Of Death): “Man I surely did ate this recording like crazy back in the day…. That noise was so fresh and we had already been used to the likes of ACRID, EVOKED DOOM, early POISON, ARSENIC and the likes so nothing could frighten us at that point haha! I also recall getting this recording in the mail via Shane Embury from his WARHAMMER days… The cool tape trading days. I had no choice than review it in my zine, D.O.D., from that point because it was so magnificently extreme!” Now finally this ultra-obscure gem comes back from the dead getting the proper FOAD treatment, mastered from the best sounding source in existence. One sided LP with a silk screened original art silk screened on the flipside. Incudes an insert with lyrics, drawings and liner notes.

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on red vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 200 copies
