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

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!

More in detail about each release:

SODOM ソドム “St. Requiem” gatefold LP + 7″ (F.O.A.D. 150)

A treasure of Japanese Hardcore/Punk finally seeing the light on vinyl in a deluxe version authorized by the band and all mastered and assembled in a process of years under supervision of the singer Zazie. This collection includes the cult “St. Requiem” tape-album (1984) + a bonus 7″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 GAUZE‘s line-up in the passage from Typhus to Gauze in fall 1981.  Housed in a silver laminated gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled booklet full of rare flyers, photos and original artworks.

VULGARITY KIDS “No one / Bloody splatter” LP (F.O.A.D. 152)

Furious Japanese Hardcore founded in Utsunomiya City in 1985! Brand new LP including their “No one” studio session 2017 and the lost&found “Bloody splatter” demo 1989!! As mentioned on the previous VULGARITY KIDS LP also released by F.O.A.D. Records, it was believed that the “Bloody Splatter” demo was completely lost and there were no chances to find it, not even through the circles of the most diehard Japanese tape collectors.

After their 30th year reunion gig at Bar El Puente in Yokohama, a friend of the band got in touch and told us that she had found a copy of it. So what you have here is an incredible rarity, a lost and found recording of raging fast Japanese Hardcore/Thrash recorded 3 decades ago + brand new songs that will equally rip your brains off. 12 songs. Lyrics sheet included. Click HERE for the trailer!

Available versions:

Diehard coke bottle green vinyl with bloody red splattering ltd to 100 copies

Black vinyl ltd to 200 copies


EIEFITS “Mezame” LP (F.O.A.D. 155)

Energetic and loud female fronted Punk from Tokyo at times speeding up to Hardcore territories that recall classic 80’s bands like The COMES and GAS. As a matter of fact this band includes a spectacular parade of ex members from cult acts such as THE HECK, COLORED RICEMEN, FORWARD, KGS, LIP CREAM, THE COMES, EXTINCT GOVERNMENT, plus the current drummer of THE SLOWMOTIONS. Prepare for a sharp Punk attack of piercing female vocals over sturdy riff laden momentum built by pounding drums, thunderous bass and tough guitar riffs.  Their third full length album including 15 songs that simply rip!! Lyrics sheet included. Click HERE for the trailer!

Black vinyl ltd to 200 copies
