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.

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath & The exorcism” 2xCD deluxe digibook and BULLDOZER “The final separation” CD deluxe digibook out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!!

Posted in Bulldozer on December 5th, 2017 by foadmaster

..we promised to end the year with a bloody apocalypse, so here’s the first deadly shelling! After the highly successful vinyl editions of all their 80’s full lengths, we are glad to keep the legacy with our friends BULLDOZER stronger than ever, so here’s some highly collectable deluxe digibook CD editions of their first two albums, EP and demo! No preorders this time, they’re both instantly available and ready to ship: BULLDOZERThe day of wrath & The exorcism” 2xCD digibook and BULLDOZERThe final separation” CD digibook out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!! Both releases are housed in ultra elegant hard cover DIGIBOOKS each one including rare photos and lyrics. These are hands down the best CD versions ever made for these masterpieces, making justice to what we repute the real roots of Italian Metal and some of the most important worldwide Black/Thrash Metal releases of all times!

More in detail about the contents of each release:

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath + The exorcism” 2xCD digibook (F.O.A.D. 105/cd)

CD1 – THE DAY OF WRATH: The ground-breaking debut full length of Italy’s most respected Metal band of all times finally coming back to light in a fantastic new version specially remastered from 1st generation sources provided by the band and re-packaged with unseen photos and lyrics! BULLDOZER‘s first album is a total classic of blackened evil Metal taking the rawest school of VENOM and MOTÖRHEAD to an unebelievably powerful and wicked sonic impact, bearing the malevolent flame of “Black Metal” and “Welcome to Hell” and injecting it with a renewed intensity. For anyone into old school Black Metal to not own this is a crime. This is for anyone that worships the early releases from Venom, Bathory and Sodom.. WELCOME DEATH!

CD 2 – THE EXORCISM + FALLEN ANGEL: The ultra-fucking-rare BULLDOZER Demotape 1984 with kult “Fallen angel” 7″ added as bonus. One of the most incredible findings in FOAD‘s hunting career: only 3 copies of this demo exist, one was sent to Roadrunner, one to King Diamond and one was recently exhumed in AC Wild’s basement and delivered to us for a top quality treatment. This is the recording that got Bulldozer signed to Roadrunner in 1984 and it sounds killer… different and rawer versions of classics ended on their debut slasher “The day of wrath“. Dark, demonical Black/Speed Metal from the most savage guts of Italy’s early 80s Metal inferno, for anyone that worships the early releases from Venom, Bathory and Possessed, plus the “Fallen angel” session adds that Motörhead touch that makes this an instant masterpiece of rawness. Check out how AC Wild introduced the unreleased Demo recordings: “This tape was sent to Roadrunner and Roadrunner signed us in 1984. It was also submitted to King Diamond to ask if he was interested in being the producer of our album but he refused saying that this stuff sounded “too Punk”!!

==================

BULLDOZER “The final separation” CD digibook (F.O.A.D. 106/cd)

The 2nd full length by Italy’s Metal masters BULLDOZER! Originally released in 1986, here it finally comes in a new edition remastered directly from the studio reels provided by the band and re-packaged with unreleased photos and lyrics. “The final separation” is a devastating follow-up to their cult debut “The day of wrath” and adds a strong Speed/Thrash Metal vibe to their well-tested Black Metal meets dirty R’n’R tinged aggression!

All in all, this is another good confirm of the goodness of the Bulldozer’s sound back in the 80s and it’s good to recommend it to the old school fans of this lethal black/speed combination. For all its length, the nastiness of the speed metal and the brutal influences of bands like Venom and Motörhead collide to create another high impact effort, in pure 80s style!! RIDE HARD… DIE FAST!!

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” and “The final separation” gatefold LPs out NOW on FOAD Records! Die-hard limited Japanese editions delayed (approx 1 week)!!

BULLDOZERThe day of wrath” gatefold LP and “The final separation” gatefold LP are both out today!!

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” and “The final separation” gatefold LPs… preorders are open NOW!

Posted in Bulldozer, Pre Orders, Releases on June 13th, 2016 by foadmaster

What’s brewing in FOAD‘s unstoppable cauldron of death for this month? Once again two ageless classics of the rawest and most uncompromised Italian Metal ever conceived… They have been in the pipeline for years and now they are finally ready to be unleashed: we are talking about the ultimate vinyl reissues of the first two BULLDOZER albums, “The day of wrath” (1985) and “The final separation” (1986)!! PRE-ORDERS FOR BOTH START NOW, the official release date is scheduled for June 27th 2016 even if we’ll already have a first ltd batch of copies at this week’s Hellfest Open Air in Clisson, France (that we’ll be attending as usual with our massive record stand in the Extreme Market area). We are glad to keep our legacy with our friends Bulldozer stronger than ever, and after releasing several CDs and LPs by them (“The exorcism“, “IX“, “Neurodeliri“) and managing the online sales of their official merch via scareystore.com it’s time for us to complete their 80s vinyl discography on FOAD adding these two supreme masterpieces of infernal morbidity! And as we also did with “IX” and “Neurodeliri” we prepared some limited highly collectable Japanese editions to celebrate the solid fan-base that the Bulls always had in the land of the rising sun. They will be soon available at the main underground record stores in Tokyo like our friends Record Boy and Record Shop Base and in very limited quantity also through our mailorder, but they are expected to sell out at the speed of light so as someone would suggest: RIDE HARD… ORDER FAST!!
