A month entirely dedicated to Japan! The incredible “F.O.A.D. attacks Yokohama” festival just ended at legendary Bar El Puente, with such amazing bands as Canaria, Asbestos, Eiefits, Military Shadow, 六根 (Roccon), Kandarivas, 100 Swindle and many others, and at the same time our label has just brought to light 4 new releases, all Japanese hardcore from the golden era, 1986 to 1994. As previously announced, the 4 bombs we drop this February are: G-10 “1986-1993″ LP+7”, SLAVER “Fighting Your A Go – Total discography 1987-1990” LP+CD, F.U.P. “Complete discography 1988-1991” gatefold 2xLP + CD and FORCE SKELETOR “混沌神降臨 – Discography 1991-1994” gatefold 2xLP. They are all out now and
in our tradition we have already shipped all pre-orders and updated tracking numbers. Our major distributors worldwide (you know them!) are also about to receive their copies soon.

Watch out because the diehard versions of G-10, SLAVER and FORCE SKELETOR are already completely sold out and we have a few left of the marbled grey copies of F.U.P.. Also the black vinyl versions are going at the speed of light, so hurry up! For the next month’s releases we will completely change territory and genre. Stay tuned because we will start launching trailers for the next batch in few days!

More in detail on each release:

G-10 “1986-1993″ LP+7” (F.O.A.D. 320)

Chiba Hardcore warriors!! A collection of incredible rarities tracing the history of G-10 from their origins in 1986 to 1993. All of their demos, compilation tracks, and a large selection of previously unreleased recordings exhumed by the band, so mysterious that for several tracks no one has been able to trace the song titles, assuming they were ever titled.. 27 TRACKS, all obviously never released on vinyl to date. Along with bands such as Kyojinbyo, Soltic, Scum Blast, Beni Tsubaki, Gestapo, and a few others, G-10 were among the most significant exponents of the Chiba hardcore scene in the late 80s and early 90s. Their style is dark and violent hardcore with raspy vocals, in pure Japanese tradition. LP with OBI strip, bonus 7″ with extra unreleased studio recordings. Includes 20 page full colored booklet with an exhaustive selection of rare photos and scans of the original cassettes. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following version:

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

SLAVER “Fighting Your A Go – Total discography 1987-1990” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 324)

After reissuing such Kanagawa-prefecture classics as Janky, Mad Conflux, Battle Attacker, Toxic Noise and others, here’s another hardcore gem from that area’s heyday unearthed by your F.O.A.D. psychos. SLAVER! The discography of this band is a complicated puzzle, fragmented into various compilations and an ultra rare demotape that has hardly ever circulated in tape-maniac circles.. “Fighting your a go” LP+CD sheds light on this mystery and brings together all the band’s existing recordings in one place. Tense and powerful hardcore with an intense metallic edge, in the best Japanese tradition of the late 1980s.  Bonus CD with the complete demotape and live tracks from the “Devilish fight” compilation. Includes a 16-page full-color booklet with photos and scans of the original releases. Recommended if you like classic Japanese hardcore from the late 80’s and early 90’s, and the legendary compilations from that period (just to say, SLAVER appeared on “革命 Best run fast” LP and “Best run fast Vol. 1″ flexi-disc 7” on MCR Company, “The bottom rise up to the top” flexi-disc 8″ compilation on Devilish Records, two issues of “Bondage maniac”, two issues of ” The choice is mine” and more!) Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following version:

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

F.U.P. “Complete discography 1988-1991” Gatefold 2xLP + CD (F.O.A.D. 321)

The most comprehensive and detailed discography to date of this raw and violent Japanese hardcore band! From the streets of Sapporo, Hokkaido, F.U.P. combined the crude, distorted sound peculiar to their area (think Napalm, Human Gas, Tranquilizer, Deef) with a solid backbone drawing from the rawest UK hardcore of the first wave.  This anthology brings together all their existing recordings, including all the very rare demotapes (which were seldom heard outside of their immediate circle) and tracks from the legendary “Sapporo City Hardcore” 7″ flexi compilation (1990) and “Nothing action, nothing have” compilation tape.  79 TRACKS!!!
DOUBLE LP includes: – “Non stop war” Demo (1988) / “Nothing action, nothing have” comp. tracks (1989) / “Bootleg” Demo (1990) / “Sapporo City Hardcore” comp. tracks and “No!!” free giveaway tape (1990) / “Stop the lawless an act” Demo (1991) / “Final” Demo (1991)
BONUS CD includes: “Bootleg+ (plus) Demo / Live at Bessie Hall, 1989 / Live at Zippy Hall, 1991
All scrupulously reacquired from cassettes and 1/4″ reels provided by the band and mastered with the utmost care for the most violent and annihilating sonic impact!

Diehard marble grey vinyl limited to 150 copies

FORCE SKELETOR “混沌神降臨 – Discography 1991-1994” gatefold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 322)

A rare example of traditional Japanese hardcore rooted in 80’s speed metal!!! Formed in the mid-80s as a speed/thrash metal band, after starting to attend the local hardcore scene FORCE SKELETOR gradually shifted their style toward a powerful blend of traditional Japanese HC while still maintaining an old school metal vibe, creating a unique choice of sound that turns out to be totally epic and intense… Quoting the band’s frontman Reezi: “By the time we started to write their own songs, the metal scene was already partially overshadowed by the rise of grunge, and Pantera’s influence was pushing many bands towards groove metal. Force Skeletor who aspired to play “fast and extreme metal,” felt discouraged by the state of the scene in those days. Around this time, I discovered the legendary Japanese hardcore compilation video “Complete Death Live” (1989). After watching it, I was deeply impressed and began to explore the possibility of shifting our activities to the hardcore scene. Force Skeletor auditioned at Koenji’s old 20000V and at Shinjuku’s Antiknock, two live houses which hosted countless hardcore gigs. This was the beginning of their activity as a hardcore band..”  Hard to label them, but they could be portrayed as “BURNING SPIRITS BLACKENED HARDCORE”!!
This double LP collection includes all their existing recordings: “The Chaos” demo (1991) / “混沌神降臨” demo (1992) / “The Devil” demo (1994) / track from “Sword of Thrash 6 – Morrow” comp. CD
Band members later went on to form the blasting black metal horde APOLOGIST!   Gatefold jacket + full colored booklet including photos and scans of the original cassette covers.. Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in F.U.P., Force Skeletor, G-10, Releases, Slaver on February 5th, 2024 by foadmaster2022

F.O.A.D. Records and Japanese hardcore, an unbreakable bond consolidated over time by many travels, stories of friendship, incredible tales.  To make a rough estimate (adding up what we are about to announce) we have exceeded 70 releases dedicated to bands from this wonderful country… in the discography of a label that has reached 330 catalog nr’s, that is almost a fifth! This is to tell you how much importance the infinite panorama that constitutes the underground scene of this world apart has on our taste and way of living hardcore and metal. But let’s get straight to the point: this month is really special in so many ways. There are 4 gems of Japanese hardcore, the most classic and traditional you can think of, they are all from a fantastic period: 1986-1994, they are all the result of the meticulous work of real maniacs and archaeologists in the field… In particular, a prime example is the reconstruction of the SLAVER’s discography, a qualitatively outstanding band but with a myriad of tracks scattered on compilations, an almost non-existent demo and nothing more… It took four years to get to the bottom of it!  So, long story short, this month on F.O.A.D. is a real mecca for lovers of the purest and most pristine Japanese hardcore thrash, 4 bands – 4 legends… from Chiba, Atsugi (Kanagawa), Sapporo and Tokyo, respectively.

G-10 “1986-1993″ LP+7”, SLAVER “Fighting Your A Go – Total discography 1987-1990” LP+CD, F.U.P. “Complete discography 1988-1991” Gatefold 2xLP + CD, FORCE SKELETOR “混沌神降臨 – Discography 1991-1994” gatefold 2xLP are all available for pre-orders via www.scareystore.com   What to add? Japanese hardcore thrash galore 1986-1994 at its finest!  4 releases truly made with heart and the utmost dedication.  As we have done in past months for previous batches, we have made available a very limited bundle for those who want to buy the 4x diehard releases in bulk, don’t miss it!  As usual, our recommendation is always the same: 1) colored/splatter versions will sell out fast, so hurry or cry later 2) try to make our order disposal phase as light and automatic as possible. This means that once you have placed your pre-order, try not to contact us about changes in address, items, shipping methods, and other factors that can easily confuse us and create stress. And finally, we’d like to remind you that this month at El Puente in Yokohama, Japan, there will be a two-day festival (“F.O.A.D. attacks Yokohama“) – Feb. 17-18 – with 11 bands related to our label – a good portion of them have done something with us (Military Shadow, Rocky & The Sweden, Kandarivas, Canaria, Asbestos, Eiefits), others have a link or something coming up in some way… stay tuned and if you happen to be in the area, don’t miss such a killer event!

Posted in Indigesti, Krunch, Raw Power on January 22nd, 2024 by foadmaster2022

We couldn’t have started the year in a better way! As anticipated, this January is all focused on an incredible selection of 80s hardcore classics, specifically 3 Italian releases and one from the motherland of råpunk, Sweden.  As usual we want to thank all you maniacs for the great feedback and interest shown and the support you gave us by pre-ordering these new F.O.A.D. rippers so massively. And as usual we are right on time with the release date: INDIGESTI “Osservati dall’inganno” gatefold LP, INDIGESTI “Live in Lübeck, 02.09.1987″ gatefold LP + 7” + BOOK, RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” gatefold LP and KRUNCH “Vi kåm från timrå, vi!” LP are out now on F.O.A.D. Records! All preorders have been shipped and you should receive automatic updates with tracking shortly. Copies to our distributors are also on their way, you know who the usual suspects are who deal with our sonic outrages…  Beware, there are a few copies left of the ltd. splatter editions (Raw Power will be the first to go), so if you haven’t snagged them yet, don’t sleep on them too much!

And mind you, if we’ve been more focused on European hardcore over the past few months, on the next one we finally return to our beloved Japan with 4x incredible surprises (all from the 80s-90s). And… in conjunction with what we’ll be announcing soon, there will also be a two-day festival on February 17-18 at El Puente in Yokohama dedicated to F.O.A.D. Records, starring 11 bands – a good portion of which have either come out on F.O.A.D. or have a strong connection to us in some way!  It is a huge honor for us to have a party like this, and some “bastard” from our team will obviously be there.  Stay tuned for upcoming trailers and announcements!
Meanwhile, back to the January releases – here’s a detailed description of each:

INDIGESTI “Osservati dall’inganno” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 310)

Deluxe reissue of this mandatory hardcore masterpiece, finally back on vinyl after almost 20 years! Undoubtedly one of the top 5 greatest albums in the history of 80’s Italian HC, right there with titans like Raw Power, Negazione, Wretched, CCM and Impact. Highly original song structures where energy, speed and melody embrace each other in an outstanding visionary vibe. Quoting MRR: “Non-stop intensity comes from this longtime Italian outfit. The powerful music is complex and at times awkward due to the band’s capacity in integrating leads and riffs that create some great, hard-hitting melodies. BAD BRAINS-type vocals add to this tight, original, impassioned release. This puppy shreds”.  Transferred from the original 1/4″ master reels and specially remastered for vinyl, sounding better than ever with louder vocals and enhanced features lacking in the previous versions. Housed in a luxurious gatefold sleeve with scratch resistant matte lamination, including 11″x11″ booklet with photos, lyrics in italian/english and paintings of the time drawn by singer Rudy Medea, very much in keeping with the hermeticism of his lyrics, and A2 poster reminescent of TVOR’s promotional poster from the 80s. A top notch classic that can’t be missing in your collection if you love Italian hardcore in its best shape. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard mixed white and blue vinyl limited to 200 copies

Diehard splatter blue/clear blue/green vinyl limited to 200 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 600 copies

INDIGESTI “Live in Lübeck, 02.09.1987″ gatefold LP + 7” + BOOK! (F.O.A.D. 311)

INDIGESTI captured live in 1987 at the peak of their hardcore intensity! Their best soundboard recording and the greatest live album in the history of Italian HC. Originally released on CD nearly 30 years ago by Vacation House Recordings, now finally appearing for the first time on vinyl remastered from the band’s 1st generation tape, housed in a luxurious gatefold sleeve.  Also includes a bonus 7″ with: “Slide behind your eyes” rare studio version (1987) and “Doppio confronto” live in Long Beach, CA (1986). But perhaps the most important feature that sets this release apart is having enclosed a massive 11″x11″ 64-page full-color BOOK titled “live through the 80s” – a stunning collection of tour photos, stagediving madness, flyers and memorabilia from the legendary furious years! The best visual document on INDIGESTI ever made to date, carefully assembled down to the smallest detail under the direct supervision of all the original band members, in a wonderful edition that justifies the slightly higher price than our average. Essential Italian hardcore delivered with unmatched energy and originality! Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard yellow/grey vinyl with black splattering limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 350 copies

RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 051)

F.O.A.D. Records keeps up the unbreakable legacy with Italy’s absolute Hardcore heroes Raw Power giving to their most classic album “Screams from the gutter” a proper deluxe edition, a total quality-care version that makes justice to this timeless Hardcore milestone! Many of you will agree that this is the finest Italian HC offering ever made and easily one of the 10 world’s best Hardcore records of the 80’s.. over 40.000 copies sold and still sounding fresh and up-to-date even when compared to modern HC standards. FOAD’s treatment for this all time colossus consists of a thick glossy gatefold sleeve featuring lyrics and rare/unreleased photos and flyers, a square A2 replica of their cult gig-poster with Cro-Mags and Motörhead + a scrupolous mastering that respects in detail the original reel’s sound leaving full breathe and dynamics to its original impact and (raw) power! 17 gems of intense, no-frills HC with a bombastic drummer, fantastic guitar riffs and angry vocals. It’s a difficult comparison with their other early output – “You Are The Victim” and the excellent material released by BCT – but after all “Screams From The Gutter” marks Raw Power’s peak due to its superior production. The band’s simple yet instantly memorable riffs bring to mind Black Flag, Circle Jerks, but also earlier groups like the Who, AC/DC, and of course, the Stooges. Throw in some cool harmonics, rockin’ solos, a cowbell, and a guitar player with hell-shriek vocals and you have this flawless Hardcore classic!! Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard neon-yellow vinyl with green and purple splattering, limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

KRUNCH “Vi kåm från timrå, vi!” LP  (F.O.A.D. 319)

Official reissue of the band’s cult demotape 1984 originally titled “När varje steg är ett snedsteg” (literally translated “When every step is a misstep”)… for the first time on vinyl! 18 songs of intense, energy-driven Swedish hardcore, still sounding fresh and highly entertaining to this day. Formed in 1982 in the small Sundsvall area suburb called Timra, KRUNCH were taking the best elements of early ’80s Scandinavian raw punk and refining them into a powerful and instantly catchy blend all their own, combined with a sense of humor very much related to their area. If you’re wondering how we came up with the idea of reissuing this killer demo, it’s the result of a chat with Rich Walker (Sore Throat, Solstice) about what are the best demotapes from the 80s that are undiscovered classics and have not yet received a due vinyl edition… Completely remastered from the band’s archival tapes. Comes with a replica of the original cassette j-card as insert. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard red vinyl (slightly marbled) limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

INDIGESTI “Osservati dall’inganno” gatefold LP, INDIGESTI “Live in Lübeck, 02.09.1987″ gatefold LP + 7” + BOOK, RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” gatefold LP and KRUNCH “Vi kåm från timrå, vi!” LP preorders start now!!!

Posted in Indigesti, Krunch, Raw Power on January 10th, 2024 by foadmaster2022

Having ended 2023 on a high note, with the label’s highest-ever achievement of 51 releases in the books, we are ready to enter the new one with a first batch up to the standard we promised to maintain. As on last month, we are once again focused on 80s hardcore classics – in this case, real milestones! Long story short: 3 bands from Italy and 1 from Sweden.  Two countries that when it comes to hardcore have really made history influencing generations and generations.  The best way to start are two vinyl reissues of INDIGESTI (already announced some time ago), that along with the previous collection “Sguardo realtà 1982-1983” 2xLP complete their incendiary 80s discography. This time we bring you an ultra deluxe reissue of their masterpiece “Osservati dall’inganno” presented as a gatefold LP with booklet and A2 poster and a stunning version of “Live in Lübeck 02.09.1987” gatefold LP enriched with a bonus 7″ and combined with a 64-page photo book collecting all the pictures of the band on tour in the 80s, stagediving massacres during that era, flyers and much more.  Still sticking to milestones, here we have the third F.O.A.D. reissue of RAW POWER‘s “Screams from the gutter”, for the simple reason that a mandatory classic of this level, must be always available in the F.O.A.D. catalog, given the constant demand.  And to close this poker of aces we move on to Sweden, with the vinyl reissue of an outstanding demo dating back to 1984, we are talking about KRUNCH’s “När varje steg är ett snedsteg”, which for this reissue the band has renamed “Vi kåm från timrå, vi!”..: a real explosion of intensity and energy in their unique style.

So to summarize: INDIGESTI “Osservati dall’inganno” gatefold LP, INDIGESTI “Live in Lübeck, 02.09.1987″ gatefold LP + 7” + BOOK, RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” gatefold LP and KRUNCH “Vi kåm från timrå, vi!” LP are all available for pre-order via www.scareystore.com  Be careful because as per our new habit we have also made available two different bundle combinations at discounted prices: the first one includes the three diehard splatter editions of these 3 Italian Hardcore classics, and the second one has all 3 x INDIGESTI releases in black vinyl (also including the previous “Sguardo realtà” 2xLP).  A good chance to grab the whole 80s discography of this incredible band at the best possible price.  The release date for all this has been planned for January 22. As always, we ask you to be patient and give us time to process your preorders and ship them out, don’t press us with extra requests, item changes or other things that can mess us up, it’s just a way to slow us down and put us in a bind on extremely busy days. And last recommendation: if you want to get the limited copies of each release act fast, as usual they are the first to go.

But perhaps the most important feature that sets this release apart is having enclosed a massive 11″x11″ 64-page full-color BOOK titled “live through the 80s” – a stunning collection of tour photos, stagediving madness, flyers and memorabilia from the legendary furious years! The best visual document on INDIGESTI ever made to date, carefully assembled down to the smallest detail under the direct supervision of all the original band members, in a wonderful edition that justifies the slightly higher price than our average. Essential Italian hardcore delivered with unmatched energy and originality! Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard yellow/grey vinyl with black splattering limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 350 copies

RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 051)

F.O.A.D. Records keeps up the unbreakable legacy with Italy’s absolute Hardcore heroes Raw Power giving to their most classic album “Screams from the gutter” a proper deluxe edition, a total quality-care version that makes justice to this timeless Hardcore milestone! Many of you will agree that this is the finest Italian HC offering ever made and easily one of the 10 world’s best Hardcore records of the 80’s.. over 40.000 copies sold and still sounding fresh and up-to-date even when compared to modern HC standards. FOAD’s treatment for this all time colossus consists of a thick glossy gatefold sleeve featuring lyrics and rare/unreleased photos and flyers, a square A2 replica of their cult gig-poster with Cro-Mags and Motörhead + a scrupolous mastering that respects in detail the original reel’s sound leaving full breathe and dynamics to its original impact and (raw) power! 17 gems of intense, no-frills HC with a bombastic drummer, fantastic guitar riffs and angry vocals. It’s a difficult comparison with their other early output – “You Are The Victim” and the excellent material released by BCT – but after all “Screams From The Gutter” marks Raw Power’s peak due to its superior production. The band’s simple yet instantly memorable riffs bring to mind Black Flag, Circle Jerks, but also earlier groups like the Who, AC/DC, and of course, the Stooges. Throw in some cool harmonics, rockin’ solos, a cowbell, and a guitar player with hell-shriek vocals and you have this flawless Hardcore classic!! Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard neon-yellow vinyl with green and purple splattering, limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

KRUNCH “Vi kåm från timrå, vi!” LP  (F.O.A.D. 319)

Official reissue of the band’s cult demotape 1984 originally titled “När varje steg är ett snedsteg” (literally translated “When every step is a misstep”)… for the first time on vinyl! 18 songs of intense, energy-driven Swedish hardcore, still sounding fresh and highly entertaining to this day. Formed in 1982 in the small Sundsvall area suburb called Timra, KRUNCH were taking the best elements of early ’80s Scandinavian raw punk and refining them into a powerful and instantly catchy blend all their own, combined with a sense of humor very much related to their area. If you’re wondering how we came up with the idea of reissuing this killer demo, it’s the result of a chat with Rich Walker (Sore Throat, Solstice) about what are the best demotapes from the 80s that are undiscovered classics and have not yet received a due vinyl edition… Completely remastered from the band’s archival tapes. Comes with a replica of the original cassette j-card as insert. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Diehard red vinyl (slightly marbled) limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

SS-20 “Secta suicida siglo 20” LP, SS-20 “Ojos infantiles” LP, SS-20 “Cadaver exquisito” LP, ATAVISTIC “Retrospective: from within to clear-cut conscience” 2xLP and SIEGE “Drop dead – Complete discography” gatefold 2xLP…out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!!

Posted in Atavistic, Releases, Siege, SS-20 on December 20th, 2023 by foadmaster2022

Finally it’s time to unleash the last batch of F.O.A.D. releases for 2023. In the past twelve months we managed to put out 52 RELEASES (44 on vinyl, 3 on CD, 4 on MC and 1 book)!!! This is our all-time highest result, exceeding by far all our expectations. We look forward to the next year as a chance to improve ourselves and set the bar higher, even if it will surely be a very difficult goal, considering the insane pace we kept! Now back to the records…
As told before, this month was totally dedicated to some hardcore classics. We got into the most dangerous streets of DF, Mexico, to resurrect the complete recordings of SS-20, one of the most iconic and genuine female fronted Latin American bands ever, channeled into three LPs filled with raw, noisy and snotty punk hardcore. Then we got into ultra-fast territories with Atavistic, an often forgotten Britcore gem, with a double LP set which gathers their early recordings, a full throttle blasting galore of British brutality. Last but not least, we released a new version of Siege discography. There is not much to say
about this.. one of the most reverred and important extreme records of all time, the list of bands influenced by them is endless. The definition of “classic”.

All pre-orders have been sent out (along with tracking-numbers notifications), we are just finishing the last wholesale orders. As always we want to sincerely thank those who have continued to support us
through the years and also those who have recently approached our label, those who have helped us by providing useful material, contacts or even simply constructive advice. And of course all the bands past and present who let us release their music!

Posted in Atavistic, Releases, Siege, SS-20 on December 4th, 2023 by foadmaster2022

Here we are at the last round of pre-orders of 2023! We haven’t yet taken stock and made an accurate calculation but hands down we can already tell you that this was the year with the most releases in the history of the label. Having a pace like this is truly an incredible sacrifice, a real death-race… needless to add that we’ll do everything to keep a similar if not higher standard for next year too… As you have seen, this has been a year full of surprises, and next it won’t be any different: consider that we already have more than 15 releases ready to be sent into production and at least as many in progress. But let’s get back to us, after a November completely dedicated to super-speeds and the most aberrant noise/grind extremism, this month we are completely focused on some 80’s hardcore classics (still keeping things on ultra-fast blasting territories in most cases), respectively from Mexico, UK and USA. After being in the works for years, we are pleased to announce a series of 3 x separate LP’s that reconstruct the total discography of Mexico’s chaospunk legends SS-20 at the best possible sonic quality, each enriched with a lot of bonus material, deluxe booklets and in short everything that you expect from F.O.A.D. editions. In detail they are: “Secta suicida siglo 20” LP, “Ojos infantiles” LP and “Cadaver exquisito” LP. Moving to a completely different zone, we fly over the UK with an essential collection from a criminally underrated band, ATAVISTIC! Completely bewitched by the beauty of their demotape “From within” (1986), we decided to put together a collection that includes that incredible demo restored to levels like you’ve never heard it before, the singles, and all their compilation tracks. This double LP anthology is titled “Retrospective – From within to clear-cut conscience”. And last but not least, we are proud to announce the reissue of a F.O.A.D. classic: the ultra-complete discography of Boston’s SIEGE, pioneers of all that is fast and extreme in hardcore. This special edition adds a previously unreleased version of “Grim Reaper” with Ben Barnett of Dropdead on guitar (different from the one included in our 2019 edition) and has a restyled packaging with deluxe gatefold jacket (red hot foil logo and 3D UV spot lac print) and extended booklet. So to recap: SS-20 “Secta suicida siglo 20” LP, SS-20 “Ojos infantiles” LP, SS-20 “Cadaver exquisito” LP, ATAVISTIC “Retrospective: from within to clear-cut conscience” 2xLP and SIEGE “Drop dead – Complete discography” gatefold 2xLP (new edition!) are all available for pre-order via www.scareystore.com

Watch out because you can also find a special bundle at a truly discounted price for those who want to grab all 3 x SS-20 LP’s (diehard edition) together. Our usual recommendations are: act fast if you want to catch the diehard editions in splatter/colored vinyl, avoid to bomb us with useless questions or anxious requests, it’s December and the amount of orders to cope with will be insane. The release date has been set for December 20th, but consider that delivery times during the Xmas mess are unpredictable and sometimes slow. Last thing: starting from now we have also applied a 20% discount on most of the previous F.O.A.D. releases and on all test pressings, a good chance to make combined orders and Xmas/end-year gifts!
