BULLDOZER “Ride hard – die fast” 7xLP BOXSET… preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Bulldozer, Pre Orders, Releases on September 10th, 2021 by foadmaster

Here we are! This month marks our return full steam ahead on vinyl production for what’s going to be a very busy season with many bone-crushing releases, barring other unforeseen and unexpected interruptions. And we get back on track with a little-great personal best… because what we are about to announce is the most gigantic F.O.A.D. release to date, both in terms of number of records included and weight… 3.2 Kg! It’s now been 8 years since our blood pact with this band was drawn, we started by bringing to light the lost in vaults demo 1984 “The exorcism“, and over time we reissued a good part of their discography. You got it, we are talking about BULLDOZER, a timeless myth in the firmament of wickest Italian Metal! And what we are about to release consecrates our bond with this band and comes as the definitive chapter of our partnership with them. We are pleased to announce “Ride hard – Die fast“, a boxset containing no less than 7xLPs (!!) and a huge booklet, the most complete and maniacal anthology covering the time frame that starts from the above mentioned demo and “Fallen angel” 7″ (1984) to 1990, the year when “Alive… in Poland” was first published.

It took a long time to put this beast together and we’ve put all our enthusiasm and dedication on it. So, preorders for BULLDOZERRide hard – Die fast” Boxset are up NOW!! The diehard edition limited to 100 comes with a 9″ high stainless steel inverted cross with engraved Bulldozer’s logo and has each LP on a special super-marble color setting. Don’t sleep on it because it’s expected to sell out very quick! Furthermore, pay attention to the fact that we are also putting the test pressing in pre-order, it comes in a special customized box, hand-numbered… at the moment there are less than 15 left counting those going to the band and those reserved by close friends.

TERRORIZER “Before the downfall 1987-1989” 2xCD digipack, POISON “Into the abyss – resurrected” CD and POISON “Full ’86 live set in rehearsal” CD : out NOW on FOAD Records!!

Posted in Poison, Releases, Terrorizer (L.A.) on August 24th, 2021 by foadmaster

A quick update on what has been going on in the last few months… as many of you are most likely aware, there are currently severe issues affecting the vinyl manufacturing process on a worldwide scale. Not only are the increasingly extended waiting times an issue, but also the limited availability of source materials, as worsening Covid scenarios around the globe slow down the production of raw vinyl material and its transport to pressing plants. This said, most of our planned release dates have been pushed back by approx 2 months. In the time since our last vinyl outputs (June) we have worked stubbornly to fix this situation and we’re glad to say that from September onwards we’ll be perfectly in line with the set deadlines and there will be no more empty months. As you can imagine we have a lot of irons in the fire and we don’t want to sit still for reasons beyond our will. And waiting for the kraken that we’re about to unleash in September we did not want to leave you empty-handed even in August, so we have decided to fill this waiting phase with 3 x CD releases …and following the many requests, we have picked up two classic bands from our back-catalog: TERRORIZER and POISON! The recent upgraded vinyl reissue of TERRORIZERBefore the downfall 1987-1989” has been wiped out in few weeks, so why not making it available again on a deluxe 2xCD digipack set, same story with POISON‘s best sounding version of their classic “Into the abyss“, or better “Into the abyss – resurrected“, previously only available on LP and sold out very quickly… here’s another chance to get it, for the first time on a CD only version. And to complete the onslaught, why not adding another POISON classic, their raw and barbaric “Full ’86 live set in rehearsal” previously only included in the gigantic “Hoelle und vernichtung” Boxset as double LP, now back in stock for the first time on CD. So to sum it all up: TERRORIZERBefore the downfall” 2xCD digipack, POISON “Into the abyss – Resurrected” CD and POISONFull ’86 live set in rehearsal” CD are all out now and ready to ship. Since we are rushing towards the announcement of the next vinyl warfare there won’t be any preorders for these, they’re all directly out today!

More in detail about each release:

TERRORIZER “Before the downfall” 2xCD digipack (F.O.A.D. 069/CD)

Deluxe 2xCD reissue of this total Grindcore classic on F.O.A.D. Records, finally back in stock in a new, upgraded version with 1 extra song (“Funeral bitch” – Master cover) that was accidentally missing in the 2014-2016 editions. Quoting OSCAR GARCIA: “This is the first and the only true release of Terrorizer LA demos ever captured on vinyl, not a low quality bootleg but an official release, none better than to have it all on F.O.A.D. Records. Awesome collection for any Terrorizer fan!“. The ultimate early years’ anthology from LA’s godfathers of GRIND, the one and only… TERRORIZER! This monsterwork starts off with “Collapse“, a completely unreleased song from the “World downfall” studio session unearthed from the band’s secret archives… next is an alternative take of their split tape with NAUSEA (1988) that sounds like machine-gun fire in the face and then you can enjoy all their existing demos and early works in astonishingly great sound quality, mastered with total audiophile passion from the best sounding sources in existence!! Some of these recordings are the reason why Shane Embury of Napalm Death back in his tape-trading days got completely crazy for them and persuaded Earache to sign them and bring to light “World downfall” (when the band was already on hiatus). “Countless blast warriors still strive for this classic sound and catchy song structure, but no one can match it on Oscar Garcia’s pitch(less) caveman growl! This is the perfect storm of incredible songwriting and recording quality” (Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer / Agoraphobic Nosebleed about “World downfall“). 46 SONGS of bulldozing L.A. Grindcore with a solid Death Metal imprint, all the classics you want to hear included!

* Deluxe double CD digipack (8 panels) with different colors than the previous versions

* 2 booklets (38 pages in total) featuring extensive interviews, loads of never-seen-before photos, scans of old flyers, demo artworks and more!

* Fixed bonus CD with 1 extra song (“Funeral bitch” – Master cover) accidentally not appearing on the previous versions

POISON “Into the abyss- Resurrected” CD (F.O.A.D. 162/CD)

POISON‘s infernal cult is alive!! Just when you thought that it was all said and done with F.O.A.D.‘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 version 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 Teutonic blasphemic horde and hands down their most powerful production, considering that all the previous demos were 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. CD in jewel case with 8 page booklet including photos and liner notes (by Uli Hildenbrand). Watch the trailer HERE

POISON “Full ’86 live set in rehearsal” CD (F.O.A.D. 243)

Previously only included in the “Hoelle und vernichtung” discography vinyl boxset (now completely sold out) this total cult session is finally back, for the first time on CD! Raw, punishing Black/Thrash from one of Germany’s oldest and most influential hordes of darkness and evil! A blood-drenching set featuring all their classic anthems in the crudest form plus some hidden gems that haven’t been included on their demos and album.

Quoting Uli Hildenbrand himself: “The best complete recording of a POISON Live set in decent quality (sound and performance-wise), done in our rehearsal room but with somewhat better equipment and -of course- remastered in the most effective way by F.O.A.D. and yours truly! It was recorded in November 1986 in preparation of our first (and only) studio session planned for the end of December, when we were still trying to figure out which of the songs we would eventually record in the studio. Some oft he latest material was still „work in progress“, especially „Sphynx“ wich I think was rehearsed here for the first time ever…  On the other hand, pretty much all of the trax we’d already recorded for the previous 3 demos are featured here in vastly superior versions. Listen to „Angel of Satan“ or „Legions of Hell“ AND there is that one song that we never recorded before or again – although it’s probably one of our best (in retrospect) – check out „Zombie Dance“ [continues in the CD booklet] …” Watch the trailer HERE

As you can imagine, the queue of packages to ship is endless, part of them have been mailed already, the rest will be all sent within the next 2 weeks.  Please be patient and wait for your order to be processed and updated with its tracking number.  We are working hard to get everything mailed as quickly as possible.  For any enquiries, don’t hesitate to write us, but once again – be patient and everything will come to its place.

More in detail about the still available releases:

ROSENFELD “Demo 1991” LP – 2nd edition (F.O.A.D. 219)

2nd pressing with different colors on the cover, OBI strip and silkscreened art on the LP.
Osaka Power thrashin’ inferno! Often wrongly credited as Demo 1993 this is the 1991 studio Demo by Osaka’s Speed/Thrash legends ROSENFELD, prior to their full length “Pigs of the empire”. What you get here is a piece of history in Japanese Metal, just to give you an idea of the cult status around this band, their frontman Hisayoshi sung on AION‘s monolithic “Deathrash Bound” album!  Also important to mention is that in 35 years of existence this is their first ever vinyl release, not even a single track of theirs has been pressed on vinyl up to now. A good reason for giving it a top quality F.O.A.D. treatment… taken from the band’s mastertape and delivered on 180 gram vinyl for the best sonic impact, you know what to expect. Fast, powerful and extremely intense, ROSENFELD‘s style is a splendid burst of memorable riffs, hyper-tight drumming and high pitched screams that can easily compete with some ’80s international titans of the Thrash gotha. Comes with OBI strip and a full colored booklet with loads of rare photos and flyers!  Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl (180 grams) with blue silkscreened print on B-side limited to 300 copies


SARUSHIBAI / MANBIKI CHOCOLATE Split LP (F.O.A.D. 237)

A crucial Japanese Hardcore Punk clash!! Brand new studio tracks from both bands..  猿芝居 (SARUSHIBAI) from Gunma deliver a highly intense and original blend of straightforward HC meets dark ’80s Punk embedded in a rocking vein, at times reminding the intricate approach of some cult ADK Records bands – Kikeji, Glycerin and Masturbation just to mention those that instantly pop up to mind listening to this. Utsunomiya’s Hardcore veterans 万引チョコレイト (MANBIKI CHOCOLATE) strike again with 5 new incendiary thrashing Hardcore rippers.. powerful, raging and totally catchy! If you’re new to this incredible band, they have been active since over 30 years starting the game with a legendary 8″ flexi disc (1990) and a couple of tapes now hardly sought after by the most diehard collectors, and later releasing a few CD’s and a discography LP collecting their recordings from 1990 to 2000.  Traditional Japanese Hardcore with all the best features of this style: furious vocals, fast ‘n’ tight drumming and memorable riffs and solos with a metallic imprint… This new studio session proves that they never let down and just get better with time!  LP with OBI strip and insert. Watch the trailer HERE

As we previously described them: “A vicious orgy of metallic Hardcore savagery exploding through incendiary riffs, epic GISM-flavored solos and rabid vocals. A must have for fans of GISM, ZOUO, THE SEXUAL, G.A.T.E.S. and PARASITE!”  One sided LP with insert and bonus postcard. Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in Boris, Human Gas, Manbiki Chocolate, Military Shadow, Sarushibai on June 10th, 2021 by foadmaster

New F.O.A.D. preorders, and for the umpteenth time a month entirely focused on Japanese Metal/Punk/Noise bands! Those of you who’ve got the “Legend of Kansai Hardcore” book that we’ve recently published have certainly noticed that there’s an entire appendix dedicated to the many Japanese releases that we’ve done through the years, and as promised this is a path that will keep going strong forever. So here’s another apocalyptic four to be added to that hellish circle, this time we’re starting from an absolute myth – BORIS, with a special edition of their latest effort, “NO” – which is undoubtedly their punkiest album to date, then at popular demand a new edition of ROSENFELD‘s “Demo 1991” LP with different colors (the previous got instantly sold out on preorder) and then digging deeper underground, a little big gem of traditional Japanese Hardcore Punk, the split between SARUSHIBAI and MANBIKI CHOCOLATE, and the new effort by Tokyo’s Metal/Punk maniacs MILITARY SHADOW! So, to sum it all up: BORISNO” LP / Picture LP + flexi disc, ROSENFELDDemo 1991” (2nd edition) LP, SARUSHIBAI / MANBIKI CHOCOLATE Split LP and MILITARY SHADOWViolent reign” LP are all available on preorder!

But wait, there’s more:  we had something else in the pipeline for some time and we thought this was the best month to combine it with… HUMAN GAS official merchandising! We’re honored to announce that F.O.A.D. Records has taken care to print 2 different t-shirt design and a limited hooded sweatshirt for this legendary Hokkaido Hardcore horde and they’re up for preorders in conjunction with the previously mentioned vinyl releases. As always we strongly recommend you to act fast, especially if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl versions, that are expected to sell out in few days!

More in detail about each release:

BORIS “No” LP / Picture LP + flexi disc (F.O.A.D. 234)

The most Hardcore-infused BORIS album to date, their 26th full length recorded in self-isolation due to the pandemic. This is how BORIS themselves describe the mood behind this album: “A mirror that gathers and reflects people’s negative energy at a different angle, one that is positive. That is the power and potential of the dark, extreme, and brutal noise music that we have experienced up to this point“. Previously released in Japan only by Blood Sucker Records on CD and LP (both versions already sold out and getting pricey on Discogs or elsewhere), this exclusive F.O.A.D. edition is the first internationally distributed and it adds a bonus flexi disc with an unreleased version of the band’s cover of “Fundamental Error” by GUDON, featuring Guy (ORIGIN OF M, ex-GUDON) on bass!!

To sum it all up: “NO” balances a respect for Japanese hardcore tradition with uncompromising idiosyncrasy, resulting in one of the most brazen and punishing Boris albums to date. The whole album keeps a nervous pace where their familiar sludgy doom atmospheres – that they always deliver with unmatched apocalyptic heaviness – give way to roaring Hardcore bursts in a perfectly flowing crescendo.  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Picture disc LP with bonus flexi disc (red) limited to 250 copies

Aside/Bside red and black splatter vinyl with bonus flexi disc (red) limited to 250 copies

SKRUIGNERS “Grazie di tutto” LP + “Finalmente vi odio davvero” LP and BLAXFEMA “Urla di dolore 1984-1986” LP out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!!

Posted in Blasfemia, Releases, Skruigners on May 22nd, 2021 by foadmaster

[scroll down for the English version]

Ci siamo! Le uscite di Maggio sono appena arrivate dalla fabbrica di vinili e siamo pronti a spedire. Come già anticipato, il trittico di questo mese consiste nelle due attesissime ristampe degli SKRUIGNERS, “Grazie di tutto” LP e “Finalmente vi odio davvero” LP e nella discografia completa dei BLAXFEMA, “Urla di dolore 1984-1986” LP+CD.   Le edizioni limitate a 100 copie dei due SKRUIGNERS sono andate esaurite in preordine, ne restano poche delle altre limitate a 200, rispettivamente in vinile trasparente fumé e splatter blu/bianco. Una parte dei preordini é già stata spedita, i restanti verranno inviati nell’arco della settimana entrante.  Ogni ordine viene aggiornato con numero di tracking ed eventuali note, per qualsiasi informazione o chiarimento siamo sempre a disposizione contattandoci via mail.

Ecco più dettagli su ogni uscita:

SKRUIGNERS “Grazie di tutto” LP (F.O.A.D. 222)

Per la prima volta in LP, un classico dell’Hardcore Italiano a cavallo tra gli anni Novanta e Duemila, 16 brani che hanno scritto la storia di una generazione! Formatisi nel 1996, gli SKRUIGNERS nell’arco di una carriera di 15 anni hanno saputo combinare l’adrenalina del miglior HC anni ’90 (su tutti la scuola torinese di primi Crunch, Belli-Cosi e Arturo) con un occhio di riguardo all’impronta Ottantiana di band come Declino, Impact, Crash Box e altri classici, evolvendola in uno stile personale – a tratti anche Punk Rock, e al passo con i tempi. “Grazie di tutto” é il loro secondo album, registrato nel 1999 e originariamente pubblicato da Tube Records solo in CD.  Questa ristampa su vinile a 180 grammi é stata curata nei minimi dettagli a partire dal suono ripreso dai master dell’epoca, alla veste grafica – con un libretto che include testi e foto dell’epoca.  Guarda il trailer QUI

Vinile trasparente fumé (180 grammi) limitato a 200 copie

SKRUIGNERS “Finalmente vi odio davvero” LP (F.O.A.D. 223)

Il terzo album per la prima volta in LP! 18 brani, il capolavoro che ha consacrato la loro carica Hardcore fatta di energia, sincerità, rabbia, e li ha affermati come uno dei gruppi HC nostrani più seguiti negli ultimi decenni. Evolvendo la linea dei lavori precedenti, la formula che amalgama il meglio dell’Hardcore a loro contemporaneo con la prima scuola anni ’80 (non per niente su questo disco é inclusa la cover di “Mortale Tristezza” dei Declino) – qui raggiunge un equilibrio perfetto che mantiene alte tensione e intensità dall’inizio alla fine. Ogni traccia su questo disco é il ricordo di locali e centri sociali pieni all’inverosimile con masse di punk in coro e grovigli umani sopra e sotto il palco. Questa ristampa su vinile a 180 grammi é stata curata nei minimi dettagli a partire dal suono ripreso dai master dell’epoca, alla veste grafica – con un libretto che include testi e foto dell’epoca.  Guarda il trailer QUI

BLAXFEMA “Urla di dolore 1984-1986” LP+CD  (F.O.A.D. 229)

Un’altra imperdibile pietra miliare direttamente dagli anni di piombo dell’Hardcore Italiano… Formatisi a Pavia alla fine del 1984 sulle ceneri dei WRONG BOYS (anche loro recentemente ristampati su F.O.A.D. Records), i BLAXFEMA hanno continuato sulla stessa strada dedicandosi a un Hardcore veloce, rabbioso e altamente politicizzato, molto in linea con la loro assidua militanza a concerti e manifestazioni del Virus di Milano. Questa discografia completa include il loro Demotape “Menes” (1985), un piccolo classico tra i collezionisti e tape traders dell’epoca, più una session live/rehearsal registrata dal mixer, ad oggi completamente inedita, con un suono e una carica che li propone al massimo della forma, con qualche inedito e anche cover di Minor Threat e Black Flag!

24 BRANI di Hardcore sincero, incontaminato e con la stessa energia di classici come INFEZIONE, DECLINO e IMPACT. Stampato su vinile a 180 grammi, contiene un inserto fotografico a colori e un libretto stile fanzine con dentro una biografia scritta dal cantante Fabio, volantini, scansioni dei nastri originali, comunicati e manifesti rari (anche relativi al Virus) e molto altro ancora!  Guarda il trailer QUI

Disponibile in due versioni:

Edizione diehard in vinile bronzo (180 grammi) limitata a 100 copie

Vinile nero (180 grammi) limitato a 200 copie


Here we are, our May releases have just been delivered by the pressing plant and we are ready to ship.  As already announced, this month is all dedicated to Italian Hardcore with two LP’s by SKRUIGNERS, respectively “Grazie di tutto” (1999) and “Finalmente vi odio davvero” (2001) both appearing for the very first time on vinyl, plus the total discography of BLAXFEMA, a raging HC unit from the mid ’80s formed by members of Wrong Boys. The most limited versions of the two SKRUIGNERS records are already sold out on preorder, we’ve still got a few of those ltd. to 200 (splatter blue/white and smokey clear) so hurry up if you want to catch them before they’re gone forever.  Part of the orders have been sent already, the remaining ones will be all shipped in the incoming week.

SKRUIGNERS “Grazie di tutto” LP (F.O.A.D. 222)

An unmatched 90’s Italian Hardcore classic for the first time on vinyl!  Formed in 1996 not far from Milano, SKRUIGNERS have somehow slipped under the radar not being much recognized by the international HC community, although at the same time in Italy through their 15-year career they have always packed all kind of venues and squats with hundreds of punks stagediving and singing along each of their anthems word by word. Their style takes the renewed adrenalinic approach of the best contemporary HC of their time (above Torino’s bands like early Crunch, Belli-Cosi and Arturo) also paying attention to the ’80s school of pioneering legends like Declino, Impact, Crash Box etc.. evolving it with a personal touch – at times spiced up with a Punk Rock vibe, yet keeping it always fast, young and rageful.  “Grazie di tutto” is their second full length, recorded in 1999 and originally published on CD only by Tube Records. Here you get it for the first time on LP (180 grams), specially mastered for vinyl for the most powerful sonic impact, coming with a booklet that includes lyrics and photos of that time. Watch the trailer HERE

Smokey clear vinyl (180 grams) limited to 200

SKRUIGNERS “Finalmente vi odio davvero” LP (F.O.A.D. 223)

The band’s iconic third full length for the first time on vinyl!  18 songs of rapid, no frills Italian Hardcore – the album that consolidated their style based on energy, sincerity, rage, and estabilished them as one of the Italian HC acts with the largest fanbase in their country. Evolving the formula adopted on previous works, “Finalmente vi odio davvero” (2001) combines the best of ’90s Hardcore (think of early Crunch and Arturo) with the roots coming from furious Italian HC pioneers (as a matter of fact here you’ll also find a cover of DECLINO‘s “Mortale tristezza“).  Even if they never reached the deserved recognition abroad, each track on this record is a memory of completely sold out venues and bloody pits of punks stagediving and singin’ along.  Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, specially mastered for the most powerful sonic impact, including a booklet with lyrics and photos of that time.  Watch the trailer HERE

Marble blue/white vinyl (180 grams) limited to 200

BLAXFEMA “Urla di dolore 1984-1986” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 229)

Another incredible Italian Hardcore gem from the “furious years” not to be missed… Founded in fall 1984 on the ashes of WRONG BOYS (that have also been reissued on F.O.A.D. recently), BLAXFEMA continued along the same path delivering fast, angry and political Hardcore. This complete discography includes their classic “Menes” Demotape 1985 straight from the reels and a never-heard-before soundboard live/rehearsal that shows them at the top of their game!!  24 TRACKS of sincere, crucial Hardcore recommended if you also like INFEZIONE, DECLINO, IMPACT and early European thrashing HC in general.  Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, comes with a full colored photo insert and a fanzine styled booklet with liner notes, rare flyers, scans of the original tapes, Virus related press pages, extra artworks and a lot more!!
