DECLINO “Terra bruciata – discografia completa” gatefold 2xLP and SLANDER “Calunnia” LP (special ltd. re-press) out NOW on FOAD Records!!

After countless delays and mistakes from the pressing plant, we have just been informed that DECLINOTerra bruciata” gatefold 2xLP is finally on the way to the FOAD warehouse! This means that all your preorders will be shipped starting from next week. We’re very sorry for the long wait, it rarely happens that a FOAD releases gets postponed so much, but after a delay in production we realized that there was a misprint on the gatefold sleeves (several pages missing in the booklet glued on the inner panel) so we had to wait 2 weeks more to get this sorted out. Now the agony is over and this Italian Hardcore masterpiece is seeing the light as it was thought to be, housed in a gatefold sleeve with a thick 24 PAGE booklet including all their existing photos, flyers and even some never seen before artworks like the discarded cover of “Eresia“. There are still some copies on ltd clear vinyl, not many left, so act fast if you want to catch yours.

In conjunction with this we decided to add another Italian HC ass-kicker, not a 80s “furious years” related band but a present day’s revelation… nothing else but Venice’s SLANDER with a special re-press of their successful “Calunnia” LP, strictly limited to 100 copies with an extra A2 poster that wasn’t included in the previous edition!

More in detail about each release:

DECLINO “Terra bruciata – discografia completa” 2xLP  (F.O.A.D. 134)

The most exhaustive and complete DECLINO discography release ever made! Formed in 1982 in Torino (also hometown of Negazione, Kollettivo, Blue Vomit, Nerorgasmo and many more), DECLINO stands as one of the most important names in the legendary first wave of Italian Hardcore, or call it “the furious years” or specifically for Torino, the “wild bunch”. They were on the maps in the early MRR reports about Italy’s Punk/HC scene and also appeared in the fundamental “P.E.A.C.E.” 2xLP compilation on R Radical Records!  Their style was a highly energetic clash of speed, rage and creative song-writing. The band featured members that also played in cult acts such as Negazione, Indigesti, 5° Braccio etc… and they were definitely among the first in their area to develop a mature style that was leaning more towards the intensity of total Hardcore than on Punk’s rawness. This anthology includes all their existing studio recordings, consisting of: the debut 7″ (1983), “Mucchio selvaggio” split tape/LP with Negazione (1984), 3 unreleased tracks (1984), “Eresia” 12″ (1985) and a complete soundboard live recording (Denmark, 1985) never released before in its entirety… for a total of 39 songs!

Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a 11″x11″ booklet glued on the inner panel, collecting a huge selection of photos, flyers, artworks and all the lyrics. And included in this first pressing you’ll also find a poster with the discarded art for “Eresia” 12″ that has never been published to date!! Compared to the previous collective works, “Terra bruciata” is the definitive and most complete one, each session / recording included is totally complete! If you’re a maniac of rapid, straightforward Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC in general, this is an absolute must!
