Posted in Kansai HC book, Pre Orders, Releases, Rustler, Swindle Bitch, The Undesirables on April 12th, 2021 by foadmaster

This is a very special month for F.O.A.D. Records, because the main release that we are going to present is a book, a kind of item that isn’t that frequent in the line of releases of a record label… Years ago we published “Dritti contro un muro” – the definitive book on the history of Italian Hardcore/Punk in the ’80s, now we’re back on a similar experiment… What we are going to introduce now is a book documenting the history of Hardcore in a specific area of Japan, the Kansai region. The development of this project required enormous efforts and above all in many cases it meant finding ourselves slammed doors in our face by many people we asked for help in translating. But at the end, due to a really lucky situation, our paths crossed with an old friend who has lived in Tokyo for a long time, married to a Japanese girl, and from him the input and the opportunity to complete this project was reborn! Finally we are happy to announce that the English version of “THE LEGEND OF KANSAI HARDCORE” is ready!! Written by Ishiya of DEATH SIDE and FORWARD in collaboration with Shintani of RAPES, this book is a unique report about the scene that gave birth to legendary bands such as ZOUO, S.O.B., OUTO, RAPES, WARHEAD, NIGHTMARE, MOBS and many more. The book is packed with interviews, rare photos (in stunning quality, full coloured) and at the end you’ll find an extra section all dedicated to the many Japanese Hardcore / Punk / Metal releases on F.O.A.D. Records. And to make it even more outstanding, we have prepared a limited hard-bound cover version with an incredible bonus: a ZOUO / RAPES split flexi disc with unreleased recordings of both bands… ZOUO’s rare track “731” is not appearing on the recent “Agony remains” discography on Relapse!

In conjunction with this, it made sense to release more themed material, so we picked two Japanese bands that we had in our pipeline for some time, both are classic ’80s-’90s Shizuoka Hardcore ragers and both feature a Japanese legend in HC drumming: Akiyama. We’re talking about The RUSTLER and SWINDLE BITCH, of which we’re glad to present total discographies for the first time on vinyl. And to complete another deadly race of F.O.A.D. releases that will hardly be forgotten, we’re moving to the UK to introduce The UNDESIRABLES, a new Hardcore beast seeing the joint venture of two iconic characters that wrote the history of British Punk: TEZZ (Discharge, Broken Bones, Battalion Of Saints and more) & RAT (Varukers, Discharge, The Vile and more)!! So to sum it all up: “THE LEGEND OF KANSAI HARDCORE” – Book (diehard edition with ZOUO / RAPES flexi disc!!), THE RUSTLER1988-1994” gatefold 2xLP, SWINDLE BITCHLonely wolf like a storm – Complete Swindle Bitch 1993-1995” LP and THE UNDESIRABLES “s/t” LP on F.O.A.D. Records are all available on preorder. It goes without saying that the limited versions of these releases will not last long, as we’ve already got hundreds of requests, so we strongly advise you to act fast if you want to secure them to your collection!  Planned release date: April 22, 2021!

THE LEGEND OF KANSAI HARDCORE – Book (F.O.A.D. 230)

“Kansai” is a region in Japan that lies in the southern-central territory of Japan’s main island Honshū and includes the prefectures of Mie, Nara, Wakayama, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyōgo and Shiga. The metropolitan area of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto is the second-most populated in Japan after the Greater Tokyo Area. This book, previously published only in Japanese and now finally translated into English, is incredible journey through the depths of the Kansai Hardcore hell run by none other than Ishiya of DEATH SIDE and FORWARD fame. Teaming up with him in the interviews is Shintani from RAPES, whose career stretches from the early days of the Punk/Metal scene to the present. Packed with interviews, tons of interesting anecdotes and spiced up with rare pictures, this is the definitive work about that legendary scene, a true-to-the-bone, authentic Hardcore report… Bands included: ZOUO, S.O.B., OUTO, RAPES, WARHEAD, NIGHTMARE, MOBS, Charmy & Pon (LAUGHIN’ NOSE, NASHI) and more!

Another Japanese Hardcore gem on F.O.A.D. Records! Ultrafast, raging, powerful – three words to describe the overall feeling that we get approaching to any of the legendary names spawned by the Shizuoka HC scene.

This anthology shows the band’s progression from the early proto-blasting thrash assault of their s/t 10 song flexi disc, not far from the style of Deadless Muss (in their second phase) and early S.O.B., to a more traditional Japanese Hardcore approach. Double LP with gatefold jacket, OBI strip and 20 page booklet including a wide selection of rare photos, gig flyers and scans of the original releases. Watch the trailer HERE

NOISECORE FROM 1984!!!!!!! The longly awaited full discography by these pioneering Noisecore Punks from Brazil, among the earliest and most annihilating sonic terrorists of the ’80s! These maniacs were responsible for a crazily fast Chaos-Thrash long before the British explosion of Grindcore or the arrival of bands like AxCx, Sore Throat and the likes, and they were equally extreme and out of control… the blasting tornado on their split with OLHO SECO from 1985 was way ahead of their time in terms of outrageous speed and ear-splitting distortion. This exhaustive discography LP includes the following: Split LP with OLHO SECO (both versions. 1985), INFRATORES (pre-BRIGADA DO ÓDIO! 1984), s/t EP (2002) and “Diáspora” EP (2006, for the first time on vinyl!). 50 TRACKS!!

The first ever vinyl discography of these Greek filthy Crustcore veterans! Founded by members of Sound Pollution and Sadistic Noise, INDUSTRIAL SUICIDE were clearly inspired by the late ’80s Manic Ears/Peaceville generation that took the school of Discharge, Amebix and Antisect to a new stage of stenching heaviness, at times pushing the pedal to Grind-Punk speed, keeping a line of continuity with the extremity of their predecessors, the legendary Sound Pollution. This collection includes their Demo 1989, Rehearsal 1989, unreleased tracks 1990 and bonus sessions recorded from 2017 to 2019 (including a song with Bri/Doom on guitar and an Antisect cover).

Flesh-ripping, old school Pathological Grindcore starring three heavyweights of the Czech Gore/Grind scene: Bilos (Malignant Tumour), Jürgen (Ahumado Granujo, Ingrowing) and Hary (Pathologist).  These forensic maniacs deliver what they’re highly specialized in: 24 songs in 27 minutes taking the best of early Carcass, Xysma, Regurgitate, Dead Infection to a new level of sickness and intensity! A festering throwback to the golden late ’80s to early ’90s era when the milestones of this genre where setting new shocking standards in extreme music.

All this channelled through a very well conceived analog production that embodies the real soul of the original PathoGrind, chaining you to the walls of an anatomy room!  LP with printed inner sleeve and two sided A2 poster.  Get ready to drown in a swarming of putrid bacterias!  Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in Brigada Do Odio, Industrial Suicide, Nuctemeron, Pre Orders, Releases, Sick Sinus Syndrome on March 10th, 2021 by foadmaster

Back with a vengeance! As the last F.O.A.D. month was all centered on Metal territories, digging through the darkest crypts of rare and hallucinating Death/Thrash relics, now it’s time to change course and return to a well-tested formula that has often been our trademark. 4 bands whose common denominator is speed and sonic annihilation, be it pioneering Noisecore Punk, bestial Death/Noise, old school Crustcore or Pathological Grind sickness as in the cases that we’re about to introduce. So… what a month!

Check this out: BRIGADA DO ÓDIO from Brazil, a band that was already playing hyperfast Noise/Thrash back in 1985 and that sounds way more extreme than any other proto-grind generators reissued on F.O.A.D. so far, then we have their country-fellows NUCTEMERON, a real obscure gem, up to now only recognized in the diehard tape-trading circles of psychos… a blackened Noise/Grind horde of the same ferocious breed that spawned sonic aberrations such as Necrobutcher, Hell Noise, Exterminio Brutal, Dissector, Trucidator, Necrofago and loads more, then moving to Europe: INDUSTRIAL SUICIDE, raw Crustcore veterans from Greece for those who miss the early Peaceville/Manic Ears wave of Grind/Punk, formed in 1989 by members of Sound Pollution and Sadistic Noise and to top it off… a brand new opus from the Czech Republic that will make your day if you’re missing the real soul of the original Pathological Grindcore (“Reek of putrefaction“, “Above the mind of morbidity“, “Effortless regurgitation of bright red blood” just to mention a few), we’re talking of SICK SINUS SYNDROME, a devastating forensic Gore/Grind all-star team featuring Bilos (Malignant Tumour), Jürgen (Ahumado Granujo, Ingrowing) and Hary (Pathologist).

So to sum it all up: BRIGADA DO ÓDIOS/T discography” LP, NUCTEMERONPosers mutilation 1989-1991” LP / CD, INDUSTRIAL SUICIDE1989-2019” LP and SICK SINUS SYNDROMERotten to the core” LP are all available for preorders. As usual we made some special diehard versions on some unique marbled/swirl variants, our friends at the pressing plant are often testing new interesting color mixes that have been rarely seen before and that perfectly match with the artwork and style of the bands we release… these are expected to sell out quickly, so we strongly recommend you to blast fast and secure them to your collection!

CD 1 – “Main frame collapse” album (1989)

31 songs of what was with no doubt one of the most deranged, fast and original Extreme Metal acts in the Italian scene of the ’80s.  If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem Necrodeath, these were the first examples of hyper-speed driven thrashin’ Death Metal from Italy, that in more simple words equals “the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories“. All these treasures mastered from the best sounding 1st generation sources provided and approved by the band.

This monsterwork portrays in the most effective way the band’s evolution from their nihilistic thrashing Hardcore roots to the sadistic nerve ripping sonic torment of their “Total schizophrenia” Demo (mentioned by Max Cavalera as one of the reasons why he choose “Schizophrenia” as title for Sepultura‘s 2nd masterpiece) to their absolute cult debut “Main Frame Collapse“. Fans of ultra fast blasting Thrash a la Wehrmacht, early Sadus, Merciless, Sarcofago… this is a must have!  Housed in a 8 panel digipack including two booklets for a total of 40 pages full of rare photos, flyers, scans of the original tapes and lyrics!  Watch the trailer HERE

Once again we strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl versions, as it often happens with our ltd. editions, they finish in few days.

After being 3 years in the works, here’s finally the official reissue of the only Demo by this demonic Black/Thrash horde from Singapore, originally released on tape in 1994 and revered by maniacs as a hidden gem of absolute cult… Ripped straight from the band’s master reels and pressed on 180 gram vinyl to ensure the fiercest sonic impact! Fanzine styled 16 page booklet with lots of never seen before pictures, flyers and exclusive interview. Raw, sinister Black Metal that combines the old school Singaporean sound with influences that recall the ’80s South American Death/Thrash hell! For fans (and with members!) of early IMPIETY and ABHORER.

Front cover art by Chris Moyen (originally supposed to be a t-shirt that never came out).  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Diehard edition on smokey clear vinyl limited to 100 copies

SCHIZO  “Delayed Death – 1984/1989 The Years Of Collapse” 2xCD Digipack (F.O.A.D. 206)

Ultra fucking FAST Sicilian Thrash-core assault!! The most exhaustive SCHIZO early days’ collection you can dream about. A deluxe Double CD set compiling the following:

CD 1 – “Main frame collapse” album (1989)

CD 2 –  “Before the collapse 1985-1987” Demo collection consisting of:  “MFC” Demo (1987) / “Total Schizophrenia” Demo (1986) / “Thrash the unthrashable, thrash to kill” Demo (1985) / Bonus rehearsals (1985)

31 songs of what was with no doubt one of the most deranged, fast and original Extreme Metal acts in the Italian scene of the ’80s.  If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem Necrodeath, these were the first examples of hyper-speed driven thrashin’ Death Metal from Italy, that in more simple words equals “the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories“. All these treasures mastered from the best sounding 1st generation sources provided and approved by the band.

This monsterwork portrays in the most effective way the band’s evolution from their nihilistic thrashing Hardcore roots to the sadistic nerve ripping sonic torment of their “Total schizophrenia” Demo (mentioned by Max Cavalera as one of the reasons why he choose “Schizophrenia” as title for Sepultura‘s 2nd masterpiece) to their absolute cult debut “Main Frame Collapse“. Fans of ultra fast blasting Thrash a la Wehrmacht, early Sadus, Merciless, Sarcofago… this is a must have!  Housed in a 8 panel digipack including two booklets for a total of 40 pages full of rare photos, flyers, scans of the original tapes and lyrics!  Watch the trailer HERE

ROSENFELD “Demo 1991” LP, PLAZMA-X “White shadow 1986-1989” LP and MNK PROJECT “Mousouzoku” LP+CD: SOLD OUT on preorder!!

Posted in MNK Project, Plazma-X, Releases, Rosenfeld on January 23rd, 2021 by foadmaster

We expected they would finish really quick but this may have been the F.O.A.D. preorders’ batch sold out in the shortest time to date, as always thanks to all of you for the incredible support and for enjoying our releases so much. Keep an eye open on your local distros / stores usually getting stuff from us, if you missed these on scareystore.com you might be lucky to find them through some of those who are waiting for wholesale copies from us.

The records have just been delivered to our warehouse from the pressing plant and we’re working hard on packing and shipping all your preorders.  ** PLEASE NOTE – VERY IMPORTANT ** : due to the multitude of postal changes and new customs rules that have been applied since January 1st 2021, it will take us longer than expected to get all these packages sent. We are trying to find all possible solutions to speed up shipments which are subject to delays, but we need time.  Most of the USA/Canada preorders that were supposed to go via registered Mbags were instead entrusted to UPS, and this is a good thing because you will receive them faster and with a much more traceable service from departure to delivery. The types of shipments that will be suffering delays are the following: Registered Mbags to those countries on which we can’t use UPS (mostly Asia, South America, Switzerland, Norway), 1st class air mail to certain countries, all mail to the UK. Please be patient, this will be sorted out as quickly as possible.  Even if they’re sold out, we’re anyway leaving you some details and photos of these 3 amazing Japanese Metal / Punk releases with the promise that we’ll be back soon with more hidden gems that deserve to be unearthed and revived on vinyl!

ROSENFELD “Demo 1991” LP  (F.O.A.D. 219)

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. Also included: a full colored booklet with loads of rare photos and flyers! Watch the trailer HERE

MNK PROJECT “Mousouzoku” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 191)

Founded in 1983 on the ashes of GODDESS (featured on the mythological “ADK Omnibus vol. 1” compilation) this shortly lived all-female trio embodied the unique sound of ADK-era bands combining the true core of early ’80s Japanese Punk nihilism with influences from other genres, creating a dark, nervous style all of their own. Complete discography including the impossible to find 7″ (1985, ltd. to 300 copies most of which were trashed after they disbanded, less than 100 survived and were handed to friends) plus a completely unreleased studio session from the same time ending with a melancholic, pop-infused track that is an instant classic!

Sourced from the master reels, produced by Juntaro Yamanouchi (The GEROGERIGEGEGE).  Foldout insert with lyrics and band photos/flyers. Bonus CD with the same contents of the LP, to satisfy the digital maniacs! Recommended to fans of The STALIN, NURSE, 奇形児, REAL, MASTURBATION.  Watch the trailer HERE
