MÖRBIT (Morbid) “METALION: 50 years of…” LP and UNKNOWN DEATH “Demo 1987” LP out NOW on FOAD Records!!

Happy birthday Metalion!! May 20th: as promised we are ready to announce that 2 new FOAD releases are out in perfect time to celebrate the 50 year birthday of the infernal norwegian maniac that over 3 decades ago gave birth to one of the most important mags in the underground Metal history! The double vinyl assault coming out to pay homage to this anniversary consists of nothing else than the ultra rare rehearsal of MÖRBIT – the real MORBID tribute, a special band featuring members of WATAIN, NIFELHEIM, DISMEMBER, MERCILESS and ENTOMBED playing MORBID classics in a totally cursed and ominous mood, with a touch that only such titans of the Swedish Black/Death Metal scene can deliver.. and the rare demotape of the pre-TERRORIZER horde UNKNOWN DEATH, a ferocious raw avalanche of primitive Los Angeles Death Metal. The two limited versions of MÖRBIT got sold out in less than 1 day, the black vinyl version is going very fast too, and there aren’t many copies left of the UNKNOWN DEATH limited colored vinyl version.. so you know what to do! We are starting to ship all preorders from Monday, please be patient because they are even more than what was expected so it’ll take us some time to pack and ship them all.

More in detail about each release..:

– MÖRBIT (Morbid)  “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP (F.O.A.D. 124)

In 2011 the Swedish Black Metal cult MORBID released the gigantic sampler “YEAR OF THE GOAT“. To celebrate that a very special band was put together in order to perform some MORBID classics live for a selected audience. The band went under the name MÖRBIT and consisted of legendary musicians of the Swedish Extreme Metal scene. Erik of WATAIN on vocals, Tyrant of NIFELHEIM on bass, David of DISMEMBER on guitar, Erik of MERCILESS on guitar and Stjärnvind on drums (ENTOMBED, MERCILESS etc.). The night before the actual concert the band had a final rehearsal at the WATAIN’s “wolf lair” which also was the funeral for Metalion’s SLAYER MAGAZINE. Now a few years later METALION turns 50 and in order to celebrate this unholy event it was decided between all members and of course MORBID & METALION to release a really rare recording of the final rehearsal before the gig the day after. With the help of Erik WATAIN and FOAD Records this was made possible! Get ready to freeze to death in the Swedish Black Metal inferno with these raw and morbidly evil classics:

1) My dark subconscious
2) Disgusting Semla
3) Wings of funeral
4) From the dark

BLACK VINYL  LIMITED TO 320 COPIES

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

– UNKNOWN DEATH  “Demo 1987” LP  (F.O.A.D. 122)

UNKNOWN DEATH, one of the first bands previously had by legendary grindcore masters Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado, before Peter Sandoval joined forces. Before Pete there was a local drummer, Fish Perez who’d been a friend in the L.A. scene for several years. With heavy influences in the likes of Death, Bathory, Venom, early Napalm Death, etc., Unknown Death began making noise in the mid 80’s in any downtown warehouse that would house them. During this period they recorded their debut 12 song demo tape, self-titled UNKNOWN DEATH which was well received locally. Unknown Death seldom played at this point, rehearsals began to dwindle, and members became laxed. A short time later during a missed rehearsal by Fish, Pete was brought to Unknown Death’s rehearsal by a mutual friend and was asked to jump in on drums. Immediately after, Oscar & Jesse knew they had found a drummer to equal their raw talent and energy. Shortly thereafter, Unknown Death would split due to differences and TERRORIZER would be born to become one of the most influential bands in grindcore history ….  Before TERRORIZER, before NAUSEA, before MAJESTY, experience the ultra raw Death Metal aggression of LA’s UNKNOWN DEATH!! Freshly ripped from the best sounding tape provided by band members, restored and mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio.

Available in 2 different versions:

DIE-HARD EDITION ON BEER CLEAR VINYL LIMITED TO 100 COPIES
