ATROCITY “Infected + early demos” Gatefold 2xLP + insert (F.O.A.D. 205)

Smashing in your fucking skull, like a ripe fruit – Brain begins to haemorrage, it’s breaking at the root“!! The grinding masterpiece “Infected” by Connecticut’s sonic butchers ATROCITY turns 30 and gets a special quality centered re-release on F.O.A.D. Records, enriched by an extra LP featuring two early Demotapes (1986-1987)! These blood-thirsty maniacs were responsible for some of nastiest Death/Grind, perfectly combining the unmatched intensity of the ’80s US Death Metal tradition with terrifying old school Grindcore fury. The first comparison that comes to mind when “Infected” starts to rip your turntable to shreds is obviously REPULSION! This double LP includes an extended version of “Infected” adding a bonus alternate version of the song “Infected” that was only included on their “Hatred birth” EP and their two demos “Toxic death” (1987) and “Ravaged by disease” (1987). 32 SONGS of gut-mangling Death/Grind brutality! Housed in a gatefold jacket displaying rare photos and original artworks, also including an insert with zine excerpts and an interesting interview focused on the band’s early years. Watch the trailer HERE

Contents:
Infected” LP + extra alternate track from “Hatred birth” EP
Toxic death” Demo (1986)
Ravaged by disease” Demo 1987

Solid black vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 300 copies

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

TYFOON “Criminal death” LP + booklet (F.O.A.D. 211)

Violent Death/Thrashing onslaught from the darkest alleys of the ’80s Belgian Underground…  TYFOON‘s two and only Demotapes “The end” (1987) and “The edge of violence” (1992) for the first time on vinyl, remastered from the band’s sources.   Caustic and aggressive death-tinged Thrash Metal that recalls the mid ’80s Teutonic school of titans like Kreator and Sodom!! If we were to rank our favorite Belgian demos of that era, “The end” is undoubtedly in the top five with its nonstop fast, raw and desecrating delivery. And to complete the F.O.A.D. quality-treatment this LP comes with a massive full colored booklet filled with rare photos, flyers, memorabilia and biographical notes. Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 200 copies


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

X-CRETA “We will thrash you!! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD+insert (F.O.A.D. 207)

A killing collection of rare X-CRETA recordings (demos, rehearsals and live) prior to their smashing debut full length “Patronizing the Heterodox“. Formed in 1983, these Belgian Thrashcore gunners were responsible for some of the fiercest, stripped down, and energetic type of Crossover/Thrash, not far removed from the early releases by Voivod, but faster. At the top of their riff driven assault, some of the sickest vitriolic vocals around at the time, think of the sickest clash between Kreator‘s Mille Petrozza and Sid Migx of CCM. This F.O.A.D. anthology traces the early steps of the band starting from the primordial, pure Hardcore approach on their demo 1984 “13 recepten voor en hersenbloeding” and song from “Alle 55 kort” – both sounding quite close to their legendary country fellows Zyklome-A – and moving to the solid Speed/Thrashcore assault that followed with their demo 1985, “We will thrash you!!“. All the stuff included has been sourced from extremely rare tapes provided by our inner circle of friends-collectors and scrupulously remastered to keep the original rawness and intensity.  Bonus CD with live rehearsals, insert with photos, flyers and original tapes’ art. Watch the trailer HERE

Contents:
“13 recepten voor en hersenbloeding” Demo 1984
Song from “Alle 55 kort” compilation Tape 1984
“We will Thrash you!!” Demo 1985
Live and rehearsals 1985-1986

Available in two different versions:

Diehard swirl magenta vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 100 copies

ATROCITY “Infected + early demos” 2xLP gatefold, TYFOON “Criminal death – discography 1987-1992” LP and X-CRETA “We will thrash you!! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD preorders start now!!

Posted in Atrocity, Pre Orders, Releases, Tyfoon, X-Creta on November 10th, 2020 by foadmaster

The F.O.A.D. thrash-tank is ready to claim new victims! We left you with our September blast of 5x releases, decided to leave an empty month to take a breathe and ship all preorders, now we’re back with a completely different beast… two lost and found European Speed/Thrash-core gems, both from a country that had not yet entered our archives… Belgium, and the 30th year anniversary reissue of a Death/Grind milestone, repackaged in a special extended version with a lot of extra stuff.

We’re talking of ATROCITYInfected + early demos” 2xLP gatefold, the ultimate edition of this US grinding Death masterpiece enriched by an additional LP with the band’s first two demos (“Toxic death” and “Ravaged by disease“) and.. on the above-mentioned Belgian front, an exhaustive anthology of early X-CRETA recordings called “We will thrash you! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD, showing the band’s evolution from their pure Hardcore roots to the vicious Speed/Thrash/Crossover that brought them to the classic full length “Patronizing the heterodox” and then TYFOON… if we were to rank our favorite Belgian demos of the ’80s, “The end” is undoubtedly in the top five with its nonstop fast, raw and desecrating assault. A friend helped us to get in touch with the band and the result is: “Criminal death – discography 1987-1992” LP collecting their two and only demotapes, merciless Death/Thrash delivered with mind-blowing intensity and aggression.  So, to sum things up:  ATROCITYInfected + early demos” gatefold 2xLP, TYFOONCriminal death – discography 1987-1992” LP and X-CRETAWe will thrash you!! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD are available on preorder. The official release date is November 23rd, 2020.  All these releases are pressed on 180 gram vinyl and as always there are some limited colored vinyl versions, the “rotting bowels” green/orange splatter for ATROCITY looks totally wicked! We strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch these colored diehard versions as they always get sold out quickly.
