Posted in Asocial, Bayonet, Releases, Sodom, Yacopsae on December 20th, 2019 by foadmaster

We are finally approaching the end of 2019 and with this batch of 4x releases coming out today we’re closing what has been the most prolific year ever in F.O.A.D.‘s history…  31 releases in one year!! For a totally independent underground label based in the “Europe’s arse” as we are it’s a really astonishing result and if on one hand we’re proud of the hard work that brought us here, on the other we want to thank you all for supporting us and for enjoying these records, each one of these pieces of vinyl is backed by stories of dedication, friendship and above all enthusiasm crawling through the most impenetrable crypts of the fastest, noisiest Metal/Hardcore sickness of different eras.

So as previously announced, this is what we have on our end-year table:  BAYONETTaste of piss 1982-83” LP+CD, SODOMSt. Requiem” 2nd press LP+7″, ASOCIALFöralltid Underground” LP and YACOPSAETimeo ergo sum” CD. They are all out now and we’re rushing to ship all your preorders. Please be patient because even if everything will be mailed before Xmas, this is a period in which the postal service is extremely congested and considerable delays are quite common. So don’t worry if it takes a bit longer than what you expect. The diehard piss yellow version of BAYONET is completely sold out on preorder and the splatter one for ASOCIAL is almost finished too, act fast if you’re interested in these new F.O.A.D. outputs because they’re going fast!

More in detail about each release:

BAYONET “Taste of piss 1982-83” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 179)

Just when you thought that there were no diamonds left to be unearthed from the worshipped vaults of the early ’80s Finnish Hardcore scene, F.O.A.D. Records is ready to shock you with a lost&found classic that nobody was aware of, not even the psychos from the most diehard tape-trading circles. BAYONET have remained an obscurity also among Punks in their native land. Perhaps it has faded into somewhat a mystery as they had virtually no contributions to the thriving scene of Finland in 1982 and 1983 – the very little while they existed…  A shit-quality bootleg 7″ came to light few years ago, but it really didn’t make justice to the fact that these guys had two incredible studio recordings that they didn’t send anywhere at that time, and that were unearthed just recently thanks to the help of a friend that contacted a band member and triggered the gear that made us get here.

So if you’re a fan of raw and fast Suomi HC/Punk and turn crazy for bands such as Kaaos, Rattus, Bastards, Terveet Kädet, Varaus, Sorto, Riistetyt, Kansan Uutiset and dozens more, this 49 song discography by BAYONET needs to be an instant add-on to your collection. Needless to say that it’s all mastered from the best sounding sources in existence. These guys claim they were influenced by early ’80s US Hardcore but the style is actually what we all love of Finnish HC, a bloody chaotic inferno of speed and brutal distortion. This collection includes their two studio sessions “Taste of piss” and “Finger in a deep arsehole” plus bonus rehearsals, songs from the rare “Ilkivalta” compilation tape and the recording of the only live they ever made! It comes with an insert including a lengthy interview to Seppo and Nikke run by Otto Itkonen (Selfish, Forca Macabra, Kuolema, Kovaa Rasvaa etc..) plus some photos. To cut it short, this is a total must for every maniac of raw and chaotic early ’80s Hardcore!  Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl ltd. to 200

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

SODOM ソドム “St.Requiem” Gatefold LP+7″ 2nd pressing (F.O.A.D. 150)

2nd pressing with golden sleeves (the first was all silver). A treasure of Japanese Hardcore/Punk finally seeing the light on vinyl in a deluxe version authorized by the band and all mastered in a process of years under supervision of the singer Zazie. This collection includes the cult “St. Requiem” tape-album (1984) and a bonus EP with the “ADK Omnibus” tracks (1983) cut at 45rpm for the best sounding sonic impact. 25 songs in total.

St. Requiem” stands with no doubt as one of the best Japanese Hardcore tapes released in the ’80s, it combines rapid fast Hardcore bursts with some dark, claustrophobic atmospheres that were characterizing the sound of several bands released by the legendary ADK Records label.

And talking of the pioneering status of this great band (that moved to a different musical direction in the years to follow), the singer Zazie was part of a very early stage of the GAUZE line-up in the passage from Typhus to Gauze in fall 1981. Housed in a gold laminated gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled booklet full of rare flyers, photos and original artworks.  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Half-half colored vinyl (gold and black) ltd. to 250 copies

Splatter vinyl (gold stripes on crystal clear wax) ltd. to 250 copies

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

ASOCIAL “Föralltid Underground” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 185)

The masters of complete Hardcore Mangel are back with a vengeance! 12 songs of crushing Swedish Hardcore from these timeless legends mangling ears since the early ’80s!! Two years after “Död åt kapitalismen“, a new menace of uncompromised fury is ready to endanger your cardiac stability… Not only these guys were pioneers of the fastest and rawest ’80s Hardcore ever spawned from the freezing North, but they are among the few that kept the same level of intensity and anger with their recent reunion.

All the greatest features for a brutal Swedish Hardcore record are pushed to the top on this new full length, vitriolic vocals and vicious discharged riffs picturing the most apocalyptic war scenarios, solid scandicore/d-beat drumming and a kick-in-the-face production giving to all their rawness and distortion an even sicker and cruder feeling. Correct us if we fail to say that with this record we are closing the year with the best Swedish Hardcore album of 2019 and who knows for how much time more.. Watch the trailer HERE

Diehard splatter vinyl (black stripes on white) ltd. to 150 copies

The return of Germany’s fastest band ever, 24 songs of neck-breaking Hardcore/PowerViolence at impossible blasting speed!  After almost 30 years since their inception, these maniacs show no sign of sitting down, if you loved their previous effort “Tanz, grozny tanz“, this is the same level of rage and craziness, reaching an even tighter and annihilating dimension. And it’s the last recording featuring Emu on drums, but for no reason this is the end of an era, they’re already back setting stages on fire with a renewed line-up pulverizing asses with the same amount of aggression and ballistic precision. So get ready for a new cyclone of unstoppable Turbo Speed Violence!! SCHNELLER!  Watch the trailer HERE

There’s way too much stuff to introduce in this post… one band from Finland, one from Japan, one from Sweden and one from Germany, so we’ll keep it short and to the point. We’re at the year-end batch of F.O.A.D. releases and just like we did in November, we have doubled our production line going from 2 to 4 records, drilling your nerves with a massive dose of fast and violent Hardcore/Thrash artillery. So this is what we have prepared for this month: BAYONETTaste of piss 1982-83” LP+CD, SODOMSt. Requiem” (2nd press ) gatefold LP+7″, ASOCIALFöralltid Underground” gatefold LP and YACOPSAETimeo ergo sum” CD. A lost&found gem of raw and noisy Finnish Hardcore from the early ’80s (BAYONET), the 2nd pressing of a Japanese Hardcore/Punk milestone (SODOM ソドム), the new albums by Sweden’s crude HC mangel masters ASOCIAL and by Germany’s fastest Turbo Speed Violence maniacs YACOPSAE. They’re all up for preorders and one thing is certain…the ltd. colored vinyl versions will be wiped away very quickly, therefore as we always suggest: act fast!

SODOM – St. Requiem – gatefold LP + 7 sold out on preorder, VULGARITY KIDS – No one / Bloody splatter – LP and EIEFITS – Mezame – LP out NOW!!

Posted in Eiefits, Releases, Sodom, Vulgarity Kids on September 24th, 2018 by foadmaster

As previously announced, our string of releases for September is an all out attack of Japanese Hardcore/Punk, with 3 vinyl outputs by SODOM, VULGARITY KIDS and EIEFITS. Of these 3, SODOMSt. Requiem” gatefold LP + 7″ was definitely the most anticipated and long awaited by many. And it went beyond our expectations because it’s SOLD OUT ON PREORDER. Yes, there is no copy left at all! We’re starting to pack and ship all your preorders now, please be patient because there are tons and it’ll take us at least 2 weeks to go through all this mess and send everything. If you didn’t catch a copy of “St. Requiem” via ScareyStore, keep an eye on our many distributors worldwide as they’ll be receiving their copies in the next 3-4 weeks. Of the other two releases, the diehard run of EIEFITS was sold out in few hours as well (black vinyl still available) and we have less than 20 left of the VULGARITY KIDS ltd splatter version, so don’t miss the chance!! An important note about EIEFITS: as it already happened last month with FANTOM, the Italian pressing plant completely ignored our color requests and pressed the ltd. edition on marbled yellow vinyl instead of light blue. So there is no “baby blue” version, all of you who preordered the diehard edition will get it on yellow wax!

Posted in Eiefits, Pre Orders, Releases, Sodom, Vulgarity Kids on September 11th, 2018 by foadmaster

You know what? A triple Japanese Hardcore / Punk attack on FOAD Records is ready to destroy! Many of you already knew that this month we would have announced these 3 death threats since we let leaked some images and trailers on our FB and Instagram profiles… and one in particular has been often discussed through the years, a lot of maniacs were demanding a proper vinyl reissue, somebody was aware that we were searching for photos and rare material… then even a bootleg was done. But now it’s time to officially announce it, SODOM ソドムSt. Requiem” gatefold LP + 7″ is ready to be released on FOAD Records and preorders are up now! As ultra enthusiasts and collectors of Japanese HC and Metal, we can honestly say that this record is in the top 10 of our favourite recordings of the whole ’80s Japanese HC panorama, so it’s hard to describe how much we are honored to bring to light such a fantastic masterpiece making it finally available at reasonable prices (the OG tape is ranging from 300 to 500 $ on auctions and discogs).

In conjunction with this we are also glad to introduce a new VULGARITY KIDS LP including some brand new studio tracks and the infamous “ghost session” called “Bloody splatter” (1989) that we previously thought was completely lost. And we were totally floored when we first played it, it consists of 7 tracks in less than 8 minutes of rabid fast Hardcore insanity that will make your day if you like classic Japanese thrashers like Systematic Death, Raise Cain, Outo and similar!

And there’s more… the 3rd release of this endless blocade of rising sun’s Hardcore bombardment is the new album of the Tokyo-based all star band EIEFITS, released in collaboration with Mangrove Records that just put out the CD version. EIEFITSMezame” is an adrenalinic explosion of powerful female fronted Punk/HC, showcasing a relatively new band delivering great music with the same power and energy of countless Japanese legends that have amazed us through the past 3 decades!

So, to cut it short:  SODOM ソドムSt. Requiem” gatefold LP + 7″, VULGARITY KIDSNo one / Bloody splatter” LP and EIEFITSMezame” LP are up for preorders, needless to say that the diehard splatter/colored editions will be sold out in few days, so don’t sleep on them!
