Hailing from Rieti, central Italy, ANGEL DEATH is one of the most feared and ancient names in the Italian Death Metal scene, formed in 1984 and active until 1995.  This total discography collection on F.O.A.D. Records is a dream-come-true for a lot of infernal maniacs that for years have hoped to see all the ominous recordings of this band collected on one release. Malicious, satanic Death/Black assault of the most aggressive form! Double LP compiling their entire discography 1985-1996 including their “Death to Christianity” Demo 1986, s/t Demo 1991, “Gore (Blood of war)” EP (1992), “Exorcisin’ the pain / Desire for immortality” EP (1992) and bonus tracks… A total overview on their bloody history starting with their raw and primitive first Demo and developing into a grinding assault of merciless brutality topped by those seriously disturbing vocals oozing a feeling of ruthlessness and pure evil.

Originally signed by Deathlike Silence Productions as part of a string of ten releases that never saw the light (also including Abruptum, Sigh, Monumentum etc.) Sourced from the band’s studio masters, housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve. Pressed on180 gram vinyl!  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Diehard edition on marbled gold/red vinyl limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

 

XASTHUR (Sgp) “Hidden lore” LP + booklet (F.O.A.D. 212)

After being 3 years in the works, here’s finally the official reissue of the only Demo by this demonic Black/Thrash horde from Singapore, originally released on tape in 1994 and revered by maniacs as a hidden gem of absolute cult… Ripped straight from the band’s master reels and pressed on 180 gram vinyl to ensure the fiercest sonic impact! Fanzine styled 16 page booklet with lots of never seen before pictures, flyers and exclusive interview. Raw, sinister Black Metal that combines the old school Singaporean sound with influences that recall the ’80s South American Death/Thrash hell! For fans (and with members!) of early IMPIETY and ABHORER.

Front cover art by Chris Moyen (originally supposed to be a t-shirt that never came out).  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

SCHIZO  “Delayed Death – 1984/1989 The Years Of Collapse” 2xCD Digipack (F.O.A.D. 206)

Ultra fucking FAST Sicilian Thrash-core assault!! The most exhaustive SCHIZO early days’ collection you can dream about. A deluxe Double CD set compiling the following:

CD 1 – “Main frame collapse” album (1989)

CD 2 –  “Before the collapse 1985-1987” Demo collection consisting of:  “MFC” Demo (1987) / “Total Schizophrenia” Demo (1986) / “Thrash the unthrashable, thrash to kill” Demo (1985) / Bonus rehearsals (1985)

31 songs of what was with no doubt one of the most deranged, fast and original Extreme Metal acts in the Italian scene of the ’80s.  If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem Necrodeath, these were the first examples of hyper-speed driven thrashin’ Death Metal from Italy, that in more simple words equals “the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories“. All these treasures mastered from the best sounding 1st generation sources provided and approved by the band.

This monsterwork portrays in the most effective way the band’s evolution from their nihilistic thrashing Hardcore roots to the sadistic nerve ripping sonic torment of their “Total schizophrenia” Demo (mentioned by Max Cavalera as one of the reasons why he choose “Schizophrenia” as title for Sepultura‘s 2nd masterpiece) to their absolute cult debut “Main Frame Collapse“. Fans of ultra fast blasting Thrash a la Wehrmacht, early Sadus, Merciless, Sarcofago… this is a must have!  Housed in a 8 panel digipack including two booklets for a total of 40 pages full of rare photos, flyers, scans of the original tapes and lyrics!  Watch the trailer HERE

After starting the year at full throttle, offering you an incredible month all dedicated to Japanese Metal/Punk with 3 titles that got completely sold out in pre-order, we’re heading back to a completely different beast still digging into the sickest and most dangerous guts of an inexhaustible pit made of ancient and dark treasures from all corners of the world. Raw primordial Black/Death Metal and ultrafast Thrashcore are definitely two well-tested offensive tactics here at F.O.A.D. and this is exactly what we have prepared for you this month. A total discography double LP by Italy’s pioneering Death Metal unit ANGEL DEATH, collecting all their recordings from ’86 to ’95, an exhaustive 2xCD retrospective by the Italian Thrashcore masters SCHIZO compiling all their ’80s works from the early demos to “Main frame collapse” and then the official reissue of one of the most iconic demos from the Singaporean Black Metal inferno, XASTHUR‘s “Hidden lore” finally getting the vinyl treatment! So to sum it all up..: ANGEL DEATHMemoirs of death: the history 1986-1995” gatefold 2xLP, XASTHURHidden lore” LP and SCHIZODelayed Death – 1984/1989 The Years Of Collapse” 2xCD digipack are all available on preorder. This time the preorder phase will be a bit tighter because with the last batch of releases things went slower than what we expected due to the many postal changes that have been applied from January 1st, and we have finished to ship the last part just 1 week ago. Once again we strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl versions, as it often happens with our ltd. editions, they finish in few days.

NAPALM 1984-1986 casewrapped LP and SCHIZO Before the collapse 1985-1987 gatefold LP+7inch+CD are OUT NOW on FOAD Records

Posted in Napalm, Releases, Schizo on April 28th, 2016 by foadmaster

Watch out, 2 x new FOAD sonic nightmares are finally out and ready to ship!! NAPALM1984-1986” casewrapped LP and SCHIZOBefore the collapse 1985-1987” Gatefold LP+7″+CD have just been delivered to our headquarters and as expected they sound and look killer! Most preorders have been sent already, the last batch will be mailed in the next few days. Note: NAPALM “1984-1986” die-hard edition has been sold out in less than 1 day, some copies will be available in Japan at Record Shop Base, Record Boy, Record Shop Answer and a few more, so there’s still a chance to get it (this mostly referred to our Japanese customers that have been asking about it). SCHIZO‘s limited edition on splatter vinyl is also going quickly, so act fast if you still want to catch it via scareystore.com

More details about each release:

NAPALM “1984-1986” casewrapped LP (F.O.A.D. 102)

Hailing from Sapporo City, Japan, NAPALM stands as one of the oldest and rawest Hardcore bands ever spawned from that area. For the times they started they were incredibly fast, furious and aggressive. For us at FOAD this is a typical case of undiscovered HC treasure and we are honoured to make it available on vinyl for the very first time, in a super deluxe edition with hardbound case-wrapped cover (taking inspiration from the legendary Selfish Records LPs!), extra OBI strip and insert loaded with photos, original cassette artworks and liner notes.

They used to describe themselves as “JAPANESE AUTHENTIC HARDCORE PUNK“, their sound was an insanely distorted yet powerful wall of noisy HC.. even if from a different area – they can remind stuff like KURO, GAI, L.S.D. and 1982-84 era THE COMES. Straight from the record’s insert: the band sprinkled the noise and speed of angry Hardcore waves starting in 1983 and becoming one of the earliest Hardcore Punk bands that came from Sapporo City. They were active until 1986. As reported on a previous cassette version: “The live tracks included here were recorded at a show they played, on that show the crowd was so frightened and paralized by fear that one person fainted, so those tracks can be considered NAPALM’s “masterpiece” and memories.

This LP collects all the band’s existing recordings starting from the classic “Detestable deed” demo (all songs are included here except a spoken outro at the end of A-side on the cassette), the ultra-rare “Sapporo Punk Omnibus” comp. trax and the above mentioned live footage!

BLACK VINYL limited to 300 copies

==================

SCHIZO “Before the collapse – the complete recollection 1985-1987” gatefold LP+7″+CD (F.O.A.D. 101)

Years and years in the making (more than 5!), here it finally comes.. the most exhaustive SCHIZO demo collection you can dream about. One LP, one 7″ and one CD all in one package, housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with a poster-sized foldout insert full of rare photos and ‘zine excerpts… a true work of heart just like every FOAD release! This collection compiles all the band’s recordings before their killer “Main frame collapse” debut full length (1989), 20 songs of what was with no doubt one of the most deranged, fast and original Extreme Metal acts in the 80s Italian panorama. If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem Necrodeath, these were the first examples of hyper-speed driven thrashin’ Death Metal from Italy, that in more simple words equals “the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories“. Here you get their complete “T.T.U.T.T.K. [Thrash The Unthrashable – Thrash To Kill]” – Demo 1985, “TOTAL SCHIZOPHRENIA” – Demo 1986, “M.F.C. [Main Frame Collapse Demo]” – 1987 and as bonus an ultra obscure “Private rehearsal tape – May 31, 1985” with completely unreleased tracks!

All these treasures mastered from the best sounding 1st generation sources provided and approved by the band.. This monsterwork portrays in the most effective way the band’s evolution from their nihilistic thrashing Hardcore roots to the sadistic nerve-ripping sonic torment of their cult “Total schizophrenia” Demo (mentioned by Max Cavalera as one of the reasons why they chose “Schizophrenia” as title for Sepultura’s 2nd masterpiece). Fans of ultra fast blasting Thrash a la Wehrmacht, early Sadus, Merciless, Sarcofago.. this is a must have!

Two new F.O.A.D. releases for April… you knew we wouldn’t have missed the appointment! And once again this is a very special release party for us, due to two important reasons: 1) we’re finally announcing the first ever Japanese Hardcore band on FOAD (more will follow, it’s a promise!), and it’s an immense honour as we’re total maniacs and collectors of the hundreds of rare Rising Sun HC treasures… for some of us a true obsession! 2) After a very long time we are finally bringing to light the complete Demo collection of a Sicilian extreme Metal legend that we totally respect and support since the early days. So here we go, pre-orders for NAPALM1984-1986” case-wrapped LP and SCHIZOBefore the collapse 1985-1987” gatefold LP+7″+CD are up now! The official release date is set for April 26th 2016 even if we will premiere both LPs at this weekend’s “45th Mega Record Fair” in Utrecht/Holland (come to visit us at stall 94 in the Metal/Punk area!). As usual act fast if you want to grab the limited die-hard versions on splatter vinyl, and an extra note about Schizo for all those who are asking if there will ever be a CD edition: the CD included into this collection has also all the LP + 7″ contents, so if you want to hear it on CD order the complete package and you get it inside! More in detail:

NECRODEATH & SCHIZO “Mondocane” digipack CD out now!!

Posted in Necrodeath, Releases, Schizo on August 7th, 2013 by foadmaster

After the insane release party at the Armageddon In The Park festival that saw Necrodeath, Schizo, Bulldozer, Jester Beast and other Italian Thrash monsters share the same stage, we are stoked to announce that the official re-issue of “Mondocane” (1989) for the first time ever on digipack CD is finally out on FOAD Records and available at scareystore.com !! For those who still aren’t familiar to this Italian underground gem, “Mondocane” was a late 80s hyper-thrashing combo formed by half early Necrodeath and half SchizoMain frame collapse” era members to deliver 10 whiplashes of rapid fire Thrash-core uniting the bands’ peculiar style to a basic S.O.D. flavoured imprint.

This blasting Thrash mayhem has been entirely restored and remastered at Toxic Basement Studios and restyled/repackaged in an elegant digipack sleeve with unreleased photos from the 1989 studio session. If you are a fan of these two bands’ early outputs (above all Necrodeath‘s “Fragments of insanity” and Schizo‘s “Main frame collapse“) and Ingo’s corrosive vocal delivery then look no further and enjoy the Necroschizophrenia!

SCHIZO / NECRODEATH “Mondocane”: ristampa su FOAD Records in anteprima all’Armageddon In The Park

Posted in Events, Necrodeath, Releases, Schizo on July 12th, 2013 by foadmaster

(scroll down for the English version)

In occasione del festival “ARMAGEDDON IN THE PARK 2013” che si terrà Sabato 3 Agosto a S.Giacomo degli Schiavoni (Campobasso) e che vedrà riunita per la prima volta sullo stesso palco la “unholy trinity” italiana composta da Bulldozer, Schizo e Necrodeath, siamo fieri di presentare la ristampa ufficiale in digipack CD del famigerato “Mondocane: Project One” (1989), un classico del Thrash nostrano sfornato da una line-up d’eccezione che comprendeva 50% della prima incarnazione dei Necrodeath (Peso, Ingo, Claudio) e 50% di quella Schizo di “Main Frame Collapse” (Alberto, S.B. Reder ecc) per 10 schegge che fondevano lo stile delle due band a un’impronta base che poteva ricordare i mitici S.O.D. newyorkesi.   “Mondocane” viene presentato con audio interamente restaurato e rimasterizzato al Toxic Basement Studio e una confezione rivisitata con foto inedite della session in studio nel 1989.  Anteprima assoluta all’Armageddon In The Park che vede sul palco ben 4 band che negli ultimi anni hanno avuto materiale edito da FOAD Records: Bulldozer, Schizo, Necrodeath e i torinesi Jester Beast. Al festival sarà presente il nostro stand, ultima occasione per intercettarci durante l’estate!

The unstoppable FOAD forces are preparing the last summer attack: if you’re around in Italy in August, there’s a festival that you can’t miss: “Armageddon In The Park 2013” on Saturday, 3rd August 2013 in Campobasso, uniting for the very first time on the same stage the Unholy Italian Trinity of BULLDOZER, NECRODEATH and SCHIZO, three monster thrashers that have been ruining eardrums for 3 full decades! For this special event we will have in first preview FOAD‘s official re-issue of “Mondocane: project one” (1989), a late 80s hyper-thrashing combo formed by half early Necrodeath and half Schizo “Main frame collapse” era members to deliver 10 whiplashes of rapid fire Thrash-core uniting the bands’ peculiar style with a basic S.O.D. flavoured imprint.  “Mondocane” has been entirely restored and remastered at Toxic Basement Studios and restyled/repackaged in an elegant digipack sleeve with unreleased photos from the 1989 studio session. Come and get it at FOAD‘s stall (the very last we’ll do for this exhausting summer) and don’t forget that this festival will unite 4 bands that have been released on FOAD in the last few years: not only Bulldozer, Schizo and Necrodeath but also the mighty Jester Beast from Torino, one of Italy’s oldest and most devastating Thrash acts!!
