Also, keep in mind that in conjunction with these records we’re also shipping the official HUMAN GAS merch: 2 different tshirt designs and a hooded sweatshirt. There aren’t many left, this is a limited series that won’t be re-printed later.

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


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

Solid black vinyl (180 grams) limited to 200 copies

MILITARY SHADOW  “Violent reign” LP  (F.O.A.D. 233)

The return of the Metal/Punk iron fist! 6 brand new tracks from one of the most promising revelations in the current day Japanese underground inferno, a merciless armageddon made of scorching riffage and solos, vitriolic vocals all grinded into a venomous encounter between ’80s Speed Metal and Japanese Hardcore. 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
