Posted in Death Militia, Expulsion, Morbid Scream, Oblivion, Releases on August 21st, 2022 by foadmaster2022

Without the slightest doubt this has been the most messed up and exhausting summer in the history of FOAD Records: from June to now we have put out 14 releases (!!!), resumed traveling with our huge mobile shop/booth attending those festivals where it has always been a sort of tradition for us to go and just to add a little more stress, at the moment we’re also moving one of our two warehouses to a new location! For all these reasons together, it will be very difficult that we’ll be able to deliver new sonic crimes also in September, the chances are very few, but we’re not beat yet, so keep an eye out.  Anyway let’s get back to something closer to now: our 4x August releases are all ready, in perfect timing with what was announced and almost all your pre-orders have already been shipped, expect to receive them soon!

In short: MORBID SCREAM “Bloodstains: 941 Longhorn Drive – The Morbid Scream Demos” 2xLP, EXPULSION “Certain corpses never decay – 1989-1990” 2xLP, DEATH MILITIA “Onslaught of death – Demo & live 1985” LP+CD and OBLIVION “Intention to kill – Demos & rarities 1985” LP+CD are out today on FOAD Records. There aren’t many copies left of the ltd. editions on colored vinyl (Morbid Scream and Death Militia being the best sellers) so we strongly suggest you to act fast if you haven’t yet secured them to your collection.

More in detail on each of them:

MORBID SCREAM “Bloodstains: 941 Longhorn Drive – The Morbid Scream Demos” 2xLP  (F.O.A.D. 235)

TEXAS THRASH MASSACRE!!  After being in the works for years, here’s finally the MORBID SCREAM complete discography 1987-1990 for the first time on vinyl, collecting all their existing recordings…:
– Demo I (1987) / Demo II (1988) / – Demo III (1990) / – Live in Arlington, Dallas and Fort Worth 1987-1988
A ballistic assault of pioneering Texan Thrash, combining mid paced, hard moshing parts with neck-breaking accelerations, abrasive vocals and stomping riffs. One of the many hidden gems from the boundless underground pit of obscure recordings and rare demos to be discovered and appreciated. Even if for a long time they didn’t get the deserved recognition, MORBID SCREAM left an important mark in the 80’s American Thrash scene, so much that they have been tributed by the mighty ABSU, that covered “The Coming of War” and “Morbid Scream” on “The Sun of Tiphareth” and “The Third Storm of Cythraul” albums respectively. Sourced and mastered from the band’s 1st generation tapes. Includes a massive 48 PAGE BOOKLET with liner notes, interviews, loads of band photos, flyers, original art and more!!  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 200 copies

Diehard marbled vinyl (LP1 white / LP2 red) limited to 100 copies

EXPULSION “Certain corpses never decay – Complete recordings 1989-1990” 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 215)

Early Swedish Death Metal malignity at its finest! Expulsion started in November 1988 with Calle Fransson on drums, Anders Holmberg on bass and Stefan Lagergren on guitars. Actually the band was formed out of the ashes of a band called River’s Edge, that consisted of the three Expulsion members, Magnus Kranz on guitar and Johan Edlund (TIAMAT) on vocals. After the “Mind the Edge” demo the band felt apart. In April 1989, Expulsion released their first demo called “Cerebral Cessation”. November that year they recorded their second demo “Veiled in the mists of mystery”. The previously unreleased track “Certain corpses never decay” was released on the underground compilation tape “Hymns of the  Dead vol.2”. In 1990 Expulsion entered Sunlight Studios (Entombed Dismember, Tiamat etc.), to record two tracks produced by Tomas Skogsberg. After these recordings Expulsion broke up (and reformed with two new members 2 years later). Expulsion guitar player Stefan and bassist Anders both also played in Treblinka / Tiamat. They recorded and played (and Stefan Lagergren wrote) all the Treblinka demos/EP and the TIAMAT debut album “Sumerian Cry” (1990). This collection includes all the above mentioned demos, the rare comp. track and the Sunlight Studio session. All these recordings are being released for the first time on vinyl, completely restored and remastered. Coverart by Eric Danielsson (WATAIN). Gatefold jacket with photos, scans of the original tapes, an exclusive interview + large poster!  A must have for the diehard maniacs of pioneering Swedish Death Metal, highly recommended if you also like Treblinka/early Tiamat, Morbid, Nihilist and Grotesque.

Sourced from the band’s tapes and specially mastered for vinyl for the most destructive sonic impact. Intense, abrasive thrash from one of the earliest bands from the insane mid 80’s Toronto scene that also spawned legends such as Razor, Sacrifice, Slaughter, Infernal Majesty and many more!

Includes 16 page full colored booklet with loads of early photos, flyers and excerpts from fanzines from that era! Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in Death Militia, Expulsion, Morbid Scream, Oblivion, Releases on August 4th, 2022 by foadmaster2022

Were you hoping that we would go on vacation in August avoiding to torment you with yet another dose of FOAD thrashing bombarments? No way! And if in July we attacked you with a plethora of incendiary hardcore bombs – to counterbalance things in pure FOAD style, now it’s time to shoot some obscure ’80s metal gems. Two of the releases we are about to announce have been pending for more than a year due to a dispute with a local pressing plant that kept delaying them without giving us a delivery date, until we decided to take them out of production and send them to be pressed elsewhere. This is one of the main reasons that caused a domino-effect that has overloaded and congested us in the last few months.. but in the end we’re getting used to it and so why slow down this mad race.. let’s thrash!

So our recipe for August is all centered on ’80s speed/thrash with two US bands + one from Canada, and there’s also a seminal Scandinavian black/death horde finally getting the deserved vinyl treatment. We’re talking of Texas’ thrashers MORBID SCREAM and their complete discography entitled “Bloodstains: 941 Longhorn Drive – The Morbid Scream Demos” 2xLPEXPULSION from Sweden with an exhaustive retrospective of their early works:  “Certain corpses never decay – Complete recordings 1989-1990”, Canada’s speed thrashing maniacs DEATH MILITIA with “Onslaught of death – Demo & live 1985” LP+CD (their rare debut demo spiced up by plenty of bonus stuff from the same year) and New Jersey’s OBLIVION with a collection of all their amazing 1985 recordings called “Intention to kill – Demos & rarities 1985” LP+CD, highly energetic thrash/speed metal with a solid hardcore backbone. All of these are available for preorder via www.scareystore.com and will be premiered at Party San Open Air where you will find the massive FOAD booth, as always. We will start to ship them from August 22nd.  As usual we recommend you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl versions, they’re very limited and won’t last for long!

More in detail about each release:

IGNORANTES “Parece que tuvimos demasiados hijitos” LP (F.O.A.D. 260)

Raw, uncompromised nihilism from Chile’s premier fuzzed out hardcore punks! After multiple cassette only releases and 2 x 7″s here’s their first time on 12″… 13 tracks of snotty angry punk blending the simplistic in-your-face aggression of typical Latino-American taste with a noisy distorted approach recalling 80’s Japanese and British classics (Gai, Confuse, Chaos UK, Disorder). IGNORANTES stands above as one of the current gems of punk, their sound and attitude are totally spontaneous and out of the guts, without any ambition or intention. Quoting the singer Gabriel: “In the beginning we didn’t even try to go out and play. The idea was just to record once and that was it. Then we enjoyed the process of recording six or eight songs and that’s how it all started.” LP with large 6-panel foldout insert and lyric sheet.  Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 350 copies

NYX NEGATIV “Kalrshamns Punks 1981-1984” LP (F.O.A.D. 268)

Another Swedish punk gem brought back to life by your F.O.A.D. maniacs!! Formed in 1980, after a few line-up changes NN quickly headed to a much rougher direction turning their sound into a manic raw punkasfuck barrage.

Black vinyl limited to 250 copies

RAW POWER “Mine to kill” Gatefold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 081)

Official reissue of RP’s iconic 4th album from 1989 adding as bonus LP the incredible lost&found 1st studio take (12 TRACKS!) recorded in Italy still with Helder on drums, available for the first time on vinyl! Another uppercut in the jaws showing RP at the top of the game crossovering their manic riff-oriented Hardcore with the most intense and raging Thrash assault. Together with the incredible masterpiece “Screams from the gutter” this is hands down the fastest and tightest delivery in the band’s discography of the first decade. As for all their previous releases on F.O.A.D., this has been scrupulously remastered from the 1st generation master at Toxic Basement studio, taking the original dynamics and sonic impact to the most powerful and energetic stage. As explained by the band: RAW POWER began the recording of “Mine to kill” in Italy, at Umbi Studio, and when it came to an end there were discussions about the final product. The decision to re-record the album in England with a different producer saw Helder leave, the one most satisfied with the work they had just ended, and having already had a brief live experience with the other boys, Fabiano Bianco (Bloody Riot / Raff) replaced him on drums. The fourth album came out and the previous version was trashed. The bonus LP added to this version was what would have been “Mine to kill” at the beginning, feeling like the first real attempt to change the style and understanding even more how the personalities within Raw Power differed between them, something that has always characterized the band from any other reality”. Of those 12 tracks, 4 are completely unreleased as they haven’t been re-recorded on the final version of the album, and they simply kill! Raw, aggressive and dizzyingly precise Hardcore from Italy’s most iconic band of the unforgettable “furious years“! Comes in a thick gatefold sleeve with insert including rare photos and flyers of that time. Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 250 copies

Diehard splatter vinyl (purple on blue) limited to 150 copies

RATOS DE PORÃO “Necropolítica” Gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 275)

The return of Brazil’s undisputed Thrash-Punk masters! 8 years after the acclaimed “Seculo sinistro“, RxDxPx are back with another slab of relentless, intense and socially engaged Crossover Thrash in their unmistakeable style, this time with a stronger-than-ever political message reflecting their absolute contempt against the authoritarian government that has plagued Brazil in recent years. Musically, with a career spanning through 5 decades, RATOS DE PORAO show no sign of weakening and reconfirm themselves as the absolute champions of South American Hardcore! 10 songs full of Metal and Punk mayhem keeping it fresh and dynamic at the same time, led by Jao’s manic riffing and Gordo’s massive, vitriolic shouts of rage. With no doubts the world’s most famous basement rats have nailed it another time with a devastating album, still sounding exciting and relevant, which is an amazing achievement in Punk that most other bands of that age can’t claim! Housed in a full glossy gatefold jacket with 12″x12″ booklet.  Watch the trailer HERE

The bonus LP added to this version was what would have been “Mine to kill” at the beginning, feeling like the first real attempt to change the style and understanding even more how the personalities within Raw Power differed between them, something that has always characterized the band from any other reality”. Of those 12 tracks, 4 are completely unreleased as they haven’t been re-recorded on the final version of the album, and they simply kill! Raw, aggressive and dizzyingly precise Hardcore from Italy’s most iconic band of the unforgettable “furious years“! Comes in a thick gatefold sleeve with insert including rare photos and flyers of that time. Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 250 copies

Diehard splatter vinyl (purple on blue) limited to 150 copies

RATOS DE PORÃO “Necropolítica” Gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 275)

The return of Brazil’s undisputed Thrash-Punk masters! 8 years after the acclaimed “Seculo sinistro“, RxDxPx are back with another slab of relentless, intense and socially engaged Crossover Thrash in their unmistakeable style, this time with a stronger-than-ever political message reflecting their absolute contempt against the authoritarian government that has plagued Brazil in recent years. Musically, with a career spanning through 5 decades, RATOS DE PORAO show no sign of weakening and reconfirm themselves as the absolute champions of South American Hardcore! 10 songs full of Metal and Punk mayhem keeping it fresh and dynamic at the same time, led by Jao’s manic riffing and Gordo’s massive, vitriolic shouts of rage. With no doubts the world’s most famous basement rats have nailed it another time with a devastating album, still sounding exciting and relevant, which is an amazing achievement in Punk that most other bands of that age can’t claim! Housed in a full glossy gatefold jacket with 12″x12″ booklet.  Watch the trailer HERE

More in detail about this month’s diabolic 5:

ALKALOID “Invisible world” LP (F.O.A.D. 262)

TOTAL CULT 80’s JAPANESE HEAVY METAL! Founded in the mid 80’s by members of Tokyo’s X-RAY, ALKALOID is a highly revered name in the pioneering scene that helped defining the sound and visual style of Japanese Metal. Some additional links: vocalist Angel later joined Sapporo’s SABER TIGER, the later drummer Hachi also played in GENOCIDE NIPPON. This LP is the official reissue of their classic debut demotape “Invisible world” (1986) enriched by the lost and found “Trajectory” studio session 1986. Sourced from the band’s masters and from the only existing copy of “Trajectory“, mastered with painstaking dedication at Toxic Basement Studio. Hunting vocals, scorching solos and pure energy are the ingredients of this super-catchy record… If you enjoyed other F.O.A.D. reissues of this kind (Q.O.P., PLAZMA X) look no further, this will definitely make your day! Includes full colored 12 page booklet loaded with rare photos, memorabilia and scans of the original cassette. Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 150

HELL BOUND “Demo 1986” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 248)

..another journey through the vaults of the most incredible underground rarities! A mysterious and totally undiscovered jewel of 80’s Japanese Metal from the Hokuriku area only known in the most diehard circles of tape-trading maniacs. This “Demo 1986” collection is all focused on their early recordings, blending a NWOBHM influenced approach with some serious Sortilège worship and a speed metal touch. It includes the following works: debut demotape 1986 and 2 unreleased studio tracks 1987. Links: their drummer Yano Angel later joined the rocking hardcore punk unit called BLANQUISME known for a demo and a 7″ (1989).  LP with OBI strip, bonus CD with extended contents and a stunning 16 page booklet full of photos and scans of the rare original demotape. Disclaimer: just as for many other Japanese Metal bands of that era (Rommel, Mein Kampf, Rosenfeld etc…) you will notice a recurring use of controversial symbols in the band’s photos and artworks. Quoting HELL BOUND themselves: “In the 80’s Japanese scene it was mostly used to enhance the shocking factor without any political references. Some of you may also find some connection to this imagery in our lyrics: actually, we were trying to express our contempt towards the mistakes made by the Nazis, but our English was poor and easily misunderstood. Later on we stopped using those symbols in our artworks because we thought it was wrong, despite the shocking value. We are firmly opposed Nazism and any form of discrimination.” Watch the trailer HERE

HELL BOUND “Norwegian forest” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 249)

In conjunction with the reissue of their “Demo 1986” on LP, it was mandatory to also provide the deserved F.O.A.D. treatment to “Norwegian forest“, the band’s final opus from 1989, considered as their full length album but only released on a very limited cassette version up to now… If their previous recordings were leaning towards a NWOBHM influenced sound often pushing the boundaries to speed metal gallops, “Norwegian forest” shows their style progressing to more gloomy and occult territories, sounding like the perfect hell-match between Mercyful Fate inspired atmospheres and the intensity of traditional Japanese heavy metal! Powered by a solid production and the outstanding vocals of Junichi Mori, “Norwegian forest” is a flawless hidden gem of 80’s Rising Sun heavy metal all to be discovered.  This special F.O.A.D. version includes the complete “Norwegian forest” studio session for the first time on vinyl and a bonus CD with extended contents (7x additional live tracks). LP with OBI strip, 12 page booklet full of photos and scans of the rare original demotape. Watch the trailer HERE

SACRILEGIO “Podredumbre 1986-1988” LP (F.O.A.D. 242)

…another sonic bestiality forged in the violent streets of MedellIn, Colombia in the 80’s!! Formed in 1984 by vocalist Carlos Mario Montoya “El vikingo” (also member of NEKROMANTIE) who was assassinated in 1988, SACRILEGIO were undoubtedly one of the most important names in the early Ultra Metal scene of the Antioquian region. Quoting the biography included in this anthology: “They were influenced by Metal/Hardcore classics of the time, such as PARABELLUM, HELLHAMMER, SLAYER and SNOBB SLAKT (Swedish Hardcore)“. This gives a better idea of their style, a primitive and rough crossover of early day death/thrash with a touch of 80’s hardcore in the crudest form. In the works for more than 4 years, “Podredumbre 1986-1988” is the most exhaustive collection of all their existing recordings, assembled under supervision of the band’s late guitarist Antonio Guerrero (also founder of Agressor and Masacre).  10 songs consisting of: audition session for “Rodrigo D. No futuro” and demo 1986-1987, final recording for the soundtrack of “Rodrigo D. No futuro” (1988), live at Acción Comunal del barrio Alfonso López Castilla, 1987. As explained by the band, SACRILEGIO‘s anthem “Podredumbre” was only included in the soundtrack of the movie “Rodrigo D.” but not on the 1990’s compilation LP featuring most of the bands that were invited to take part to that project. This LP also includes a 12 page booklet full of never seen before photos, flyers and an interesting biography written with the help of Antonio Guerrero. An absolute must have for fans of the most infernal South American death thrash and raw, unpolished 80’s metal punk in general! Watch the trailer HERE

AGRESSOR “Llamas de muerte – The complete ultra-sessions 1986/1987” gatefold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 239)

After reissuing Colombian underground milestones such as Blasfemia, Restos De Tragedia and the iconic “Estamos en la sima” compilation, F.O.A.D. is back to digging into the obscure roots of the legendary Ultra Metal scene born in Medellín in the mid ’80s. This time it’s the turn of AGRESSOR, a pioneering, extremely raw unit delivering the ugly, barbaric sounds that were peculiar to that area and were portraying a nightmarish reality of crimes, drugs and misery. As some say “It’s not Metal, it’s not Hardcore… it’s ULTRA METAL“. Double LP anthology collecting all their 80’s recordings, consisting of:  “Ensayo 1986” (early demo), recordings for “Rodrigo D. No Futuro” (1987), complete session at “Estudio Tiempos Modernos” (1987), live at Aeropuerto “Olaya Herrera“, 1987. Gatefold sleeve with rare photos, flyers and a detailed history (in Spanish and English) written in collaboration with the band’s guitarist Antonio Guerrero, explaining how – with the shittiest equipment and instruments – he managed to achieve that crude primitive sound that characterized not only Agressor but also other bands he was in (Sacrilegio and Masacre) and inspired hordes of death thrashin’ maniacs all over the world. Sheer caveman brutality channelled through the rawest Metal ever created! Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in Agressor, Alkaloid, Hell Bound, Pre Orders, Releases, Sacrilegio on June 6th, 2022 by foadmaster2022

No long introductions this time because we have no less than 5 releases (!!) to announce and therefore we prefer to give space to detailed descriptions of each. As many of you know, it’s in the multifaceted spirit of F.O.A.D. Records to cover a wide range of different genres, still staying within strictly underground territories. You got the month all dedicated to noisecore, the one all centered on death metal, the one all about Japanese hardcore… to the last round – mostly dedicated to 80’s American hardcore. This month’s choice is peculiar: we decided to put together the reissues of 3 rare Japanese heavy metal demos all to be discovered (ALKALOID and two separated recordings by HELL BOUND) and 2 seminal bands that pioneered the so called “ultra metal” scene of Medellin, Colombia (AGRESSOR and SACRILEGIO). If you’re wondering what “Ultra Metal” means: well, it’s a savage assault of the rawest death/thrash backed by a true hardcore spirit and raised in a social background of violence and desperation. Two countries very far from each other but with one point in common: when it comes to metal and punk they never disappoint, in terms of intensity, originality and attitude they are a totally unique world apart that still hides an infinity of gems to be unearthed and brought to light with passion and dedication.

So our recipe for June consists of: ALKALOIDInvisible world” LP, HELL BOUNDDemo 1986” LP+CD, HELL BOUNDNorwegian forest” LP+CD, AGRESSORLlamas de muerte – The complete ultra-sessions 1986/1987” gatefold 2xLP and SACRILEGIOPodredumbre” LP! They’re all available on preorder via scareystore.com and as usual we strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl versions as they are very limited and expected to sell out very quickly. We have set the release date on June 20th because shortly after we’ll start announcing what we have in the pipeline for July, which is equally sick! Please read the following detailed reviews to understand more about the bands and the contents of each release:
