Posted in Crawl Noise, Poison, Releases on March 21st, 2019 by foadmaster

Springtime at FOAD kicks in with a pestilent wind of mephitic sonic terror!  As announced, our double retaliatory assault for this month consist of two pioneering bands from Switzerland and Germany, the first delivering some of the most extreme and anti-musical Noise / Grind brutality ever conceived and the second is a Black / Death Metal legend that forged the darkest history of the ’80s Teutonic underground. We are glad to let you know that CRAWL NOISEWall of Noise Core 1987-1989” LP and POISONInto the abyss – Resurrected” LP+CD are both OUT NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!  As expected the diehard edition of POISONInto the abyss” on splatter vinyl was sold out in few days. We still have it on black vinyl ltd to 200 copies. And if you’re looking for the dirty white swirl vinyl version of CRAWL NOISE (ltd to 100) we suggest you to act fast as there aren’t many left!

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!

Black vinyl limited to 200 copies

Official POISON “Into the abyss” t-shirts can be ordered here

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

Posted in Crawl Noise, Poison, Pre Orders, Releases on March 12th, 2019 by foadmaster

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!

F.O.A.D. ultra-limited specials: GRIMCORPSES “Demo 1987″ flexi disc 7” and SIDETRACKED “Annihiliation doctrine” 5″ are OUT NOW!!

Posted in Grimcorpses, Releases, Sidetracked on March 5th, 2019 by foadmaster

Only 10 days have passed since we announced our last 2 releases and we’re ready to kill again! This time things are quite unusual as there are no preorders for these and both items are extremely limited, so they will probably go at the speed of light.  On one hand this is a little bit of an experiment taking two records that for a reason or another were conceived to be in special formats breaking our typical schemes, available in very low quantity, on the other hand these have been manufactured by a company that worked with incredible slowness (7 months!) and were delivered without notice totally out of our release schedule.. so in few words, now that they are here after such a wait, let’s get them out immediately.

Take this as a noisy appetizer before our full length March releases that will be announced soon, we wish you to be fast enough to grab your copy. So for this special ultra-limited round we chose the pre-CRIPPLE BASTARDS band, GRIMCORPSES, bringing back to light their grotesque, caveman-sounding Demo 1987 on flexi disc and matched them with a ballistic 32 song one-sided EP by the US powerviolence/fast HC psychos SIDETRACKED that will smash you on the ground in seconds like a truck at full speed.  So GRIMCORPSESDemo 1987” flexi disc EP and SIDETRACKEDAnnihilation doctrine” 5″ are out now on F.O.A.D. Records. All that we recommend you is to be fast if you don’t want to miss them.

More in detail about each release:

GRIMCORPSES “Demo 1987” flexi disc 7″ (F.O.A.D. 164)

Ultra-limited crystal clear flexi disc, housed in a highly collectible blood dripping plastic sleeve… only 30 copies made!!
GRIMCORPSES was the shortly lived pre-CRIPPLE BASTARDS outfit featuring Alberto the Crippler on guitar/vocals and Giulio The Bastard on drums. This is the only existing Demo, recorded in 1987. 9 x festering stabs of rough as fuck, untalented proto-Grindcore / Thrash made by school kids that had just approached the genre listening to bands such as Cryptic Slaughter, Septic Death, ENT, Siege and wanted to play something so fast and extreme with no skills at all. The end result is a disastrous blurr-feast of out of time blasts, savage yells and a few embryonic ideas later rearranged and improved by the Cripple Bastards.  If Agonia was the first trace of involuntary noisecore ever appeared in Italy and Schizo gave birth to the very first Italian blast beats, GRIMCORPSES was probably the earliest sign of Grindcore in this country.  Click HERE for the trailer!

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

SIDETRACKED “Annihilation doctrine” 5″ (F.OA.D. 157)

One sided crystal clear 5″ EP, only 30 copies made!! 32 songs of hyperfast, face-slamming Noisecore/PowerViolence breaking all barriers of schizophrenia. Many of you are already familiar with this insane US unit for their turbo-speed HC PowerViolence made of rapid songs, neck breaking tempo changes and ferocious vocals, on this EP things get even faster, bordering on Noisecore territories with a cyclone of micro-tracks hitting you like a butcher’s hook in the stomach. This would have perfectly fit in the Slap A Ham’s “Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh!” releases… it’s short, inhumany fast and SICK!

ISOLATION AS CULT “Phase #2” flexi disc Ep out now on Slaughterhouse Records, officially distributed by FOAD/Scareystore!!

Posted in Isolation As Cult on February 21st, 2017 by foadmaster

We’re proud to announce that ISOLATION AS CULT have just released a new flexi disc EP on Slaughterhouse Records (Toxic Basement Studio‘s own label) and FOAD/Scareystore is the official distributor of this horrendous aural hecatomb!

One year after the sonic decimation of their 90 song Split 7″ with Aborticidio on FOAD Records, ISOLATION AS CULT returns with a new overdose of anti-musical virulence. 113 songs of complete Noisecore nihilism, hopeless and exacerbated to the most insane thresholds, combining the old school extremism of 7MON, Fear Of God, VNA, AxCx, early Cripple Bastards with Japanese filthnoisepunk influences (Gai, Confuse, Toxo-Vomit, State Children)!!

IAC from Italy is a revived early ’90s aberration of GTB from Cripple Bastards teaming up with HOD, chief of the infamous “Toxic Basement Studio” from which most FOAD releases are conceived and properly mastered for vinyl. If you’re a nostalgic of late 80s / early 90s short song Noisecore in the vein of Stench Of Corpse, Sore Throat, Crawl Noise and so on, this is exactly that kind of madness. Round cut, green flexi disc limited to 250 copies!

VIOLENT NOISE ATTACK “Complete deafness 1988-1989” LP and WARTORN “Destroy all monsters!” gatefold LP out NOW on FOAD Records!!

Posted in Releases, Violent Noise Attack, Wartorn on October 20th, 2015 by foadmaster

As previously announced, our October / November release schedule is all based on manic fast earblasting Noise in the good old tape-trading days mania…Once again we like to move through different underground genres without scoring always the same patterns, so here we go with something really fast and extreme, and expect another double jackhammering assault at the end of next month! So, VIOLENT NOISE ATTACKComplete deafness 1988-1989” LP and WARTORNDestroy all monsters!” gatefold LP are both out now on FOAD Records! All pre-orders have been shipped already, and the limited yellow vinyl version of VNA got sold out in a breathe! If you still want to catch WARTORN’s die-hard edition on marble green wax and V.N.A. on black vinyl (less than 100 left) act at lightspeed because they won’t last for long. Also, be sure to keep an eye open on our official mailorder ScareyStore as it’s getting constantly updated with tons of interesting stuff ranging from Punk, Hardcore, Thrash/Death/Black Metal, Doom/Sludge, Grindcore, Powerviolence and a lot more, quickly approaching to 4500 items available making it Italy’s largest and most efficient source for these genres. Now more in detail about our 2 new releases:

WARTORN “Destroy all monsters!” gatefold LP

32 song discography including all the studio recordings (1991-1993) of this high speed thrashing Hardcore brigade from the U.K. Take the best elements and impact of the craziest Japanese, American and British fast-core, blend them all together with some breakneck tempo changes and you get an approximate picture of the aggression they were able to deliver. This is so fast and unpredictable that at times it even oozes of an early pioneering attempt of what some US bands of the time were already labeling as Power Violence, e.g. think of Infest, Neanderthal, Crossed Out or No Comment…

Here’s a short biography to introduce them more specifically:

“Formed in late 1990 by SORE THROAT vocalist Rich “Militia” Walker after the spontaneous combustion of both bands he was playing in (SORE THROAT and WARFEAR), WARTORN began with only one aim, to create a mix of Japanese style HC such as GUDON, SYSTEMATIC DEATH and GAUZE and the ultra-fast attack of America’s SIEGE and YOUTH KORPX. Joining him in this new band were long time comrade Ian The Merciless of local 80’s Death Metal legends QUOTHROS on vocals and Dutch lunatic drummer Lennaert Roomer. Early rehearsals also included DISASTER’s guitar player Browny on bass. And with this embryonic line up the band recorded the raw and primitive “Last among Equals” demo tape on a battered 4 track recorder in early 1991. Pretty soon after Browny moved on to concentrate on DISASTER full time, so the ex-bassist of WARFEAR was brought in and an additional vocalist called Mel. With this line up the band began playing live aiming to make peoples ears bleed in the local scene with their unrelenting high velocity assaults, much to the dismay of the fashion following local peers as WARTORN’s music stood out like a sore thumb in a sea of pretentious Black Flag acolytes. In 1992 the band recorded tracks for the “Trapped In A tooth gear” sampler LP and a split EP with Rich & Lennaerts other band NAILBOMB (The original, not the band who stole their name after playing a show with them)”.

“As with all bands, the inevitable musical differences cropped up, the bassist was becoming increasingly bewildered by the fast progressing style which just kept on getting faster, and Mel the vocalist just disappeared after one gig never to be seen again. Parting ways with the bass player in late 1992 WARTORN replaced him with Big Jim Rushby (IRONSIDE / IRON MONKEY) and began teaching him the tracks for a new EP. Eventually in early 1993 WARTORN entered Fulton St Studios and in three hours laid down 11 brand new songs and a cover of Madball’s “Get Out”. Further gigging with the likes of Voorhees and Chaos UK followed before the band played their final show in the summer of 1994 before Lennaert and Jim both moved to different parts of the country thus rendering the band inactive only a few months before the second EP “Banzai” was released on the guitar player of DROPDEAD’s label over a year after it was recorded…”

Housed in a solid gatefold cover including lyrics, photos and flyers.  Limited edition of 300 copies, first 100 on marbled green vinyl.

VIOLENT NOISE ATTACK “Complete deafness 1988-1989” LP

Total discography of this terrifying Grind/Noisecore unit hailing from France… V.N.A. (Violent Noise Attack) was the side-project of a crew of friends from the late 80s French scene formed by members of the Thrash band NOMED, Pat from the highly missed label “Thrash Records” (that released Exit 13, Carbonized, Sorcery, Sentenced, Vital Remains etc…)  and local HC bands/zine editors. Their debut demotape “Final execution“, the split 7” with AGATHOCLES and the song on “1984, the fourth” Comp. LP have been always seen as some of the most intense and devastating expressions of the early short-song Grind/Noisecore era, respected by the most deranged noise extremists all over the world. Try to imagine a mix of SORE THROAT, NAPALM DEATH‘s b-side of “Scum” and FEAR OF GOD and you get the idea of the brain-drilling mayhem these maniacs were able to deliver, with a studio production that was fairly above the average level of the period.

This LP collects all their existing recordings, mastered from sources directly provided and licensed by the band members…90 SONGS of absolute ear blasting horror! Side A includes their demo (1988), the split 7″ with AGATHOCLES (1989) and a couple of unreleased studio tracks.  Side B has all never heard before stuff: a rehearsal, a full live set and even a sound-check! Comes with a 4 page insert featuring liner notes, photos, original artworks and flyers. This record is entirely dedicated to VNA’s members André Lemesle and Patrick Blondeau that both passed away few years ago.. R.I.P.!

Limited edition of 300 copies, less than 100 on black vinyl available!
