RATOS DE PORÃO “Necropolítica” CD, PIG CHILDREN  “The torment continues… 1983-1986” LP+CD, INSANITY DEFENSE “Asylum – Complete recordings 1983-1985” LP and FATAL VISION “Zeitgeist” LP: preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Fatal Vision, Insanity Defense, Pig Children, Ratos De Porao on May 9th, 2022 by foadmaster

A new F.O.A.D. attack is ready to strike, this time with an all-Hardcore four aces that will definitely hit your turntable without mercy! Here’s the deal: our original plan for May was to keep it all focused on some hidden treasures of ’80s US HC, but when we heard that our friends RATOS DE PORÃO were ready with their new album “Necropolítica” (8 years after the previous “Seculo sinistro“) we rushed to have at least the CD version coming out simultaneously with their release date in Brazil (we’ll also do it on vinyl – later on), adding it to our schedule for this month. And it perfectly fits, as the amount of high octane thrashcore they deliver is perfectly matching with the intensity and energy of the other old school rippers that we’re about to introduce. 

So this is what we picked for our US HC selection: a big surprise for many will definitely be this ultimate discography by Orange County’s fast Hardcore psychos PIG CHILDREN including their killer “Blood for the state” 12″ (1985), the rare demo 1983 and a completely unreleased sound board live 1986. All this enriched by a thick F.O.A.D. style booklet with countless photos, flyers and an interesting historical notes written by the band. Then we fly to the other coast, specifically to Centerport, Long Island, New York – and here we are pleased to announce the start of a series of reiusses to bring back on vinyl the complete Unsound Music catalog, which includes some total Hardcore smashers that aren’t yet much known on an international range.

And our first two choices are INSANITY DEFENSE with a discography LP compiling their fantastic demo ’83 and “Pilgrim state” 12″ (1985) and then the obscure, shortly lived Hardcore unit known as FATAL VISION, with their “Zeitgeist” demo 1983 finally getting the deserved F.O.A.D. treatment. If you’re a fan of pioneering NY HC these two gems can’t be missed in your collection as they totally capture the true power and fury of the greatest bands from that time, not only those based in the NY area but also those from cities like Boston, Washington DC and Detroit, of which you’ll hear an undeniable influence in both ID and FV. So to sum it all up:  RATOS DE PORÃONecropolítica” CD, PIG CHILDREN  “The torment continues… 1983-1986” LP+CD, INSANITY DEFENSEAsylum – Complete recordings 1983-1985” LP and FATAL VISIONZeitgeist” LP are all up for preorders via www.scareystore.com  As we always want to remark, these records are very limited and the colored vinyl versions even more, they’re expected to go quickly, so act fast!  Official release date for all 4 is May 20th 2022.

More in detail:

RATOS DE PORÃO “Necropolítica” CD (F.O.A.D. 275/CD)

The return of Brazil’s undisputed Thrash-Punk masters! 8 years after the acclaimed “Século 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 PORÃO 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 Jão’s manic riffing and Gordo’s massive, vitriolic shouts of rage. With no doubts 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! Watch the trailer HERE

No! You get FATAL VISION” (Jeff Earing). This mysterious short-lived band, created by Ric Clarke and Jeff Earing (Insanity Defense, Satans Cheerleaders, etc) made a cassette of full throttle raging hardcore that mixes elements of punk from both sides of the pond. 12 songs of mosh pit madness, led by singer Pete Coffey.

Official reissue on tape of the extremely scarce LP released in 1995 (only 100 pressed)! Political Hardcore from Belgrade, former Yugoslavia, strongly influenced by 80’s UK Punk and Earache/Manic Ears styled Britcore… BRAINSTORM was totally devoted to that formula, delivering a manic raw barrage of grinding HC with a massive dose of riff-oriented Thrashcore catchiness. For fans of DOOM, UNSEEN TERROR, DEVIATED INSTINCT, HERESY, ELECTRO HIPPIES and other pioneers of that scene. Just as on the original album, side A includes studio/live tracks from 1995 and Side B features the legendary “Only The Dead See The End Of War” – Studio / Live demo 1989. Their lyrics were strongly anti-war and anti-government and have been written through those critical years when the ex-YU territories were plagued by what has been one of the most horrible conflicts in Europe after WW2, sadly still very real and harsh when applied to what’s happening again today. Pro-printed silk screened tapes with full colored jcard, strictly limited to 100 copies!  Watch the trailer HERE

They are both out now and ALL your preorders have already been shipped and updated with tracking numbers. There aren’t many copies left of the diehard versions (SKINLESS on red-black splatter and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANI on swamp green vinyl) so we strongly suggest you to act fast before they’re gone forever. Also, watch out… from now on we will tighten the times for the next announcements and the opening for pre-orders of the upcoming releases since we want to recover the countless delays that have occurred in the past months due to pressing plants’ congestion, so keep an eye on our sites because there are a multitude of news on the way!

Complete early recordings collection (1994-1997) of New York’s undisputed Death Metal legend! Discover the gut slashing roots of these masters of gore and brutality. A special mention goes to their demotape “Swollen heaps“, often quoted as one of NYC’s most classic and bone crushing demos in the genre, the pinnacle of an era when brutal Death Metal was still totally straight in the face and not inflated by abuse of triggering and utterly artificial productions. Groovy riffs with plenty of chug, crushing breakdowns and technical blasting severity… watch the trailer HERE

Vicious Black/Death assault from Singapore’s circles of hell! EURONYMOUSSurrender unto evil” is the band’s only opus from 1991, a wicked masterpiece of ancient blackened wrath – BEHEADED NASRANI‘s “Demo/promo tape 1991” is another nigthmarish descent into the most putrid and malevolent realms of old school Singaporean Death Metal. Both demos have been mastered from top quality sources provided by the bands, sounding much better than any previous edition around.

SKINLESS “Gut pumping hits – the demos” gatefold 2xLP and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANI  split LP+CD …preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Releases on March 1st, 2022 by foadmaster

As you may have noticed, one of our peculiarities here at F.O.A.D. Records is to organize the releases’ schedule in a thematic way, ensuring that each month has its own special feature, so as to be able to range over various genres and countries in a well-reasoned way. In December we had the all Noisecore based month, January was focused on Japanese Hardcore/Thrash… what we have come up with for this month is an entirely different beast: the complete demos collection of an American Death Metal legend vs two obscure pioneering units from the old school Singaporean Black/Death inferno. 

If you think that there’s not much connection between these two, it’s no secret the fact that March was planned with 4 releases but two were removed from production (postponed to a date to be defined) out of all our expectations due to the usual fuck-up caused by a local pressing plant. And those two releases would have been be the ideal connecting link to create the perfect F.O.A.D. month. But after all these are details and small side effects of the gray times we are living in, and what we are about to offer you is still a solid lineup in typical F.O.A.D. style: SKINLESSGut pumping hits” gatefold 2xLP, a complete collection of the early demos and compilation tracks by these NY Death Metal heavyweights and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANIsplit” LP+CD, a nigthmarish descent into the most putrid and malevolent realms of old school Singaporean Death/Black Metal that will totally delight those of you who’ve enjoyed our previous foray through the meanders of Singapore’s ancient obscurities with XASTHUR‘s “Hidden lore” released on vinyl last year. 

So to sum things up, SKINLESSGut pumping hits – the demos” gatefold 2xLP and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANI  “split” LP+CD are both available on preorder, as usual we strongly suggest you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl version, they certainly won’t sit in our warehouse for long!
