CRAWL NOISE “Wall of Noisecore” LP and POISON “Into the abyss – resurrected” LP+CD: preorders start NOW!!

After the surprise blitz with the ultra-limited Grimcorpses and Sidetracked EPs (sold out in minutes) here we are again, ready to announce 2 more releases for this month. As many of you know, FOAD Records has a long tradition in putting out the most extreme and cacophonous Noise/Grind detonators, just think of bands like Tumor, V.N.A., Sore Throat, 7 Minutes Of Nausea, Fear Of God, Noise, early Cripple Bastards and so on.. So when Patrick from CRAWL NOISE contacted us asking if we would have liked the idea of putting out a total CN discography, we obviously flew off the desk accepting without second thoughts. Not many labels around would dare to do something like this, but we grew up listening to this horrifying barrage of “musical rape“, so we’re proud to make it happen.

And what about the other LP scheduled for this announcement? Nothing else but POISON. If you think that after doing all their demos on single LPs and then the massive “Hoelle und vernichtung” boxset all cards have been played you’ll be surprised by this. Few months ago Uli “Angel Of Death” Hildenbrand contacted us explaining that he had just found a tape including a great sounding reel-to-tape transfer of the classic “Into the abyss” album (originally recorded in 1987), so we compared it to all the previous re-editions and this one is with no doubt the real deal, it totally rips! So we agreed about a final, top sounding (well we can’t say “audiophile” for Poison!) LP version of “Into the abyss” as we consider it a timeless masterpiece of true pioneering Black / Death Metal, and it completely deserves to be rediscovered and appreciated in the sound quality as faithful as possible to how it was conceived at the time.

So preorders for CRAWL NOISEWall of Noisecore 1987/1989” LP and POISONInto the abyss – Resurrected” LP+CD are up now. There are some limited editions on swirl and splatter vinyl, only 100 copies x each release… you know what to do! Also, in conjunction with these releases we have just printed some official POISON tshirts, they are limited and we’re not planning to keep them in stock after selling out this first run, so better act fast!

More in detail about each release: 

CRAWL NOISE “Wall of noisecore” LP (F.O.A.D. 158)

Get ready for a merciless audio slaughter and ruin your turntable needle forever!! CRAWL NOISE were a terrorizing Swiss unit that decimated eardrums in that late 80’s phase (1987 to 1989) when Grindcore was starting to spread all around and some maniacs tried to push the genre to even fiercer extremes, giving birth to the whole short-song Noisecore saga of bands like 7 MINUTES OF NAUSEA, ANAL CUNT, VIOLENT NOISE ATTACK, STENCH OF CORPSE, SOUND POLLUTION, TUMOR and so on. CRAWL NOISE were clearly inspired by early NAPALM DEATH and SORE THROAT, but they pushed the level of madness and brutality to way more devastating boundaries. And their drummer Osi was then called to join the mighty FEAR OF GOD, so try to imagine how fast he was. As Erich Keller states: “After I saw Crawl Noise live, I tried everything to steal the drummer Osi for my own band Fear Of God.” This LP includes all their existing recordings: the first demo “Musical rape” (1988), their Demo #2 (1989) and two complete live sets from 1987 to 1988 (one was included on the B-side of their only 7″ and the other in some killer compilation tapes like “Rudi Rat 1” and SOA’s “Use your anger“).

What you get here is a deadly tornado of aberrant, antimusical Noisecore putrefaction blasting through impossibly fast drumming delirium, some awful background noise that could be a guitar/bass as much as a microphone pushed into a cement mixer, and at the top of all some of the most disturbing vomited grunts you can think of. Countless tracks,  complete acoustic demolition! Includes an insert with liner notes and original artworks from their few releases around at the time! Click HERE for the trailer!

Available in 2 different versions:

Diehard swirl filthy white vinyl strictly limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl limited to 200


POISON “Into the abyss – Resurrected” LP + CD + poster (F.O.A.D. 162)

POISON’s infernal cult is alive!! Just when you thought that it was all said and done with FOAD‘s monster-work “Hoelle und vernichtung” (a colossal boxset including the band’s complete discography), the wizard of darkness and evil Uli Hildenbrand unearthed from his rotting vaults a lost & found mastertape of “Into the abyss” transfered directly from the studio reels back in 1987, unlike all the previously existing re-issues that were all taken from the 1st vinyl pressing. This version is the most pristine and faithful to the original studio recordings you can think of, sounding farly better than any other release around. Pure infernal armageddon from one of the most ancient pioneering Black / Death Metal hellhounds of the mittel-European scene of the 80’s. Originally recorded in 1986, released on tape in 1987 and then 6 years later on vinyl/LP by Median Creations, “Into the abyss” is the only real studio recording of this blasphemic Teutonic horde and hands down their most powerful production, considering that the previous demos were all rough DIY recordings made in their practice space.

What you will find on this masterpiece is pummeling and barbaric death / thrash metal with plenty of early black metal elements from their earlier works. The progress this band had made in less then a year of their previous recording is remarkable, but at the same time, when looking at each demo in chronological order, you see a steady progression in their sound from recording to recording, so seeing the band improve this much should not really be a shocker. “Into the abyss” is essential for anyone even remotely into brutal, vicious 80’s death/thrash, as well as old school black metal and the mid-late 80’s proto-death metal sound. LP with bonus CD and A2 poster with photos and liner notes (written by Uli Hildenbrand). Click HERE for the trailer!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard splatter vinyl (black speckles on crystal clear) limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl limited to 200 copies
