Posted in Cripple Bastards, Death Militia, Ratos De Porao, Releases on July 10th, 2024 by foadmaster2022

We have just returned from the glorious 25th edition of the legendary Obscene Extreme Festival, which as expected was a complete blast, perhaps one of the best chapters ever. As pre-announced, we would focus this month mainly to bands that played at the festival, and we chose two heavyweights: RATOS DE PORÃO – indestructible pioneers of all Brazilian hardcore/punk/thrash and CRIPPLE BASTARDS – the highest and most intense expression of grind/hardcore made in Italy, from the late 80’s to the present. For both bands we decided to release two titles each, grabbing from their back-catalog.  For RxDxPx two deluxe reissues: “Cada dia mais sujo e agressivo / Dirty and aggressive” Gatefold 2xLP and “Sistemados pelo crucifa” LP, for C.B. an extended 12″ version of the classic debut single “Life’s built on thoughts” and a new version of “Frammenti di vita” on both LP+7″ and digipack CD.  In addition to these four, given the considerable demand, we have also decided to repress DEATH MILITIA “Onslaught of death – Demo & live 1985” LP+CD with different cover colors… for those not yet familiar with this band, this is a little gem of raw speed thrash from Canada’s 80s metal hell.  

So to sum it up: RATOS DE PORÃO “Cada dia mais sujo e agressivo / Dirty and aggressive” Gatfeold 2xLP, RATOS DE PORÃO “Sistemados pelo crucifa” LP, CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Life’s built on thoughts (expanded)” LP, CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Frammenti di vita” LP+7″ and DEATH MILITIA “Onslaught of death – Demo & live 1985” LP+CD (new edition) are all up for preorders via www.scareystore.com with release date set for July 23, 2024. All of these releases were premiered at OEF, so if you were there and visited the massive F.O.A.D. Records’ booth, you probably already grabbed them at the festival. As of today, they are also available for pre-sale online, so don’t miss out. As always we also offer you a ltd. bundle with diehard versions of the two RxDxPx and two C.B. LPs, for those who want to buy them in bulk.  Please note that the digipack CD version of CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Frammenti di vita” is a bit delayed so we are not putting it up for pre-sale with the other titles, it’ll be directly available on the out now date. And to close the usual two important recommendations:  1) act fast if you want to secure the colored/diehard versions to your collection, we have already sold a lot of them at OEF and they won’t last long 2) the summer season is undoubtedly one of the most hectic and busy for us as we alternate between working at festivals with our booth and the usual standard of 4-5 monthly releases and related mailorder duties. Please don’t press us with unnecessary questions about shipping date, tracking, replacement or additions of items after an order has been placed, address changes or whatever, because the stress and time we take to respond only delays our work and all the energy and good will we put into it. Please be patient and wait for your turn, you will receive your order and tracking code without problems.

And now to go into more detail about this month’s 5x landmines:

RATOS DE PORÃO “Cada dia mais sujo e agressivo / Dirty and aggressive” Gatfeold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 343)

Official reissue of the devastating 3rd thrash opus by the undisputed godfathers of the most furious and influential Brazilian crossover HC of all eras! DOUBLE LP with both versions recorded at the time (1988): the one sung in Portuguese and the one in English released as “Dirty and aggressive”. A lethal overdose of ultra-addictive riffs, vitriolic vocals and a dizzying rhythm session. Deluxe gatefold sleeve with 24″x12″ foldout insert collecting rare photos from that era, lyrics in both languages and Igor Cavalera’s iconic rat artwork!! After two blistering fast hardcore records (“Crucificados pelo sistema” and “Descanse em paz”), Gordo and his fellow bandmates delivered this great gem of hatred and caustic criticism. This album quickly became legendary, paving the way for “Brasil”, their most acclaimed album. Fierce, powerful and greatly written, played and produced, “Cada dia mais sujo e agressivo” is an absolute must-have fo fans of godly good thrashing crossover!

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 350 copies

Diehard fluo-yellow mixed with blue vinyl with black splattering limited to 150 copies

RATOS DE PORÃO “Sistemados pelo crucifa” LP (F.O.A.D. 352)

Out of print for nearly 20 years, here’s a top quality reissue of RxDxPx’s re-recorded version of their first seminal album “Crucificados pelo sistema” (1983). “Sistemados pelo crucifa” was originally recorded in 1999, mixed by Billy Anderson and released in 2001 by Alternative Tentacles and Peculio Discos. Absolutely punishing, no frills hardcore thrash from these indestructible Brazilian punk pioneers smashing eardrums since 43 years… All their early anthems revisited at neck-breaking speed + 1 exclusive bonus track!!! LP with pantone bronze laminated cover and fold-out insert with lyrics, liner notes and photos. Quoting the introduction done back in the day by Alternative Tentacles:  “this new version of Crucificados Pelo Sistema captures the rare chemistry of the current members performing the band’s classic songs. This time around, the album benefits from the technical wizardry of engineer Billy Anderson (LOGICAL NONSENSE, MELVINS, NEUROSIS), who mixed their first AT release, Carniceria Tropical (1998). RDP’s Portuguese lyrics focus on day to day life in Brazil, spotlighting political and social issues. They present a positive outlook and speak of creating a better future, while tempering their optimism with a strong hint of dark humor. Sistemados Pelo Crucifa is testimony to RDP’s enduring reign as HC champions!”

Remastered from the original 1st generation tapes and enhanced by 8 bonus out-takes from the same session.
“..the ultimate personification of unadulterated rage. 16 bursts of primitive angst. Raw, uncompromising hatred is seething from the cracks of every track. Musically, it’s homespun, basement Punk that explodes into unpredictable bursts of pure, trillion-m.p.h. Noise.” CHRIS DODGE, Flipside, 1993.   LP with silk screened art on B-side and foldout insert with lyrics.

Back in print after more than 10 years! 14 classics of 80’s italian punk, hardcore and thrash grinded & butchered by Italy’s undisputed grindcore masters. The end result is a granitic overdose of pounding hate-fueled thrash/fastcore, ranging from out-of-control explosive fury to C.B.’s true old school hardcore roots… BULLDOZER, SCHIZO, NEGAZIONE, RAW POWER, JESTER BEAST, IMPACT, WRETCHED, NERORGASMO, DECLINO, UPSET NOISE and many more.. Reissue of the 2010 LP + a 7″ reproduction of “Frammenti di vita” ‘s first chapter (1994) remixed at Toxic Basement Studio. Front cover art by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Voetsek, Violator, Deadfall, Cannabis Corpse, S.O.D. etc). Special guests on the album: C.C. Muz (JESTER BEAST) playing all guitars on “Polizia una razza da estinguere”,
Pier Gonella (NECRODEATH), Ivan (SKRUIGNERS) and more!! Here’s the band’s introduction to this release: “In 1994, the German noise/grind/thrash label Ecocentric Records released a Cripple Bastards 7” entitled “Frammenti di vita” (Fragments of life), containing 6 covers of Italian hardcore punk bands from the early 1980s, grinded and butchered in our own style. For years we planned to record a definitive full length follow-up with different songs from the original EP, and this finally happened way later, in 2010. We chose a selection of classic Italian hardcore-thrash pioneers who influenced us the most in the early days and helped shape our sound, and this is also our tribute to those pioneering bands whose members have become our friends over the years.  This LP also adds as a bonus the 1994 7″ retransferred from the original reels and remixed at Toxic Basement Studios, with a much better sound than the original Dracma mix made at the time…”

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!

Time has come for the first announcement of 2023, and as we told you, the intention is to start the year with a carpet bombing! For this reason we have chosen a truly mind-boggling selection of bands, each of which needs no long introduction – ranging from the most ferocious hardcore thrash (RATOS DE PORÂO covering Terveet Kädet and CRIPPLE BASTARDS at their most vandalistic punk oriented early phase) and taking everything to extremes with some classic deathly grind, this is the case of a longly awaited anthology of early works by DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA and the second pressing of INSECT WARFARE‘s “Entomological siege”, a true classic and FOAD best seller which by popular demand, had to be available again.  So in a nutshell we have already told you everything, our cauldron of sickness for January consists of: DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA “Repulsive overtones?  1988-1989” 2xLP+CD and digipack 2xCD, RATOS DE PORÂO  “Isentön päunokü” 10″MLP, CRIPPLE BASTARDS  “From 1988 to 1991” 2xLP and INSECT WARFARE “Entomological siege 2004/2009” 2xCD+DVD boxset (2nd pressing).

We would like to point out that releases like Disharmonic Orchestra fully represent what was the starting intent of the label: we grew up listening to this stuff and it is part of our musical backbone, one of the basic ideas of when F.O.A.D. started focusing on vinyl works was about “releasing the music that we grew up with and that has meant something special to us through the years” and an anthology like this embodies that spirit to perfectionThe planned out-now date for this hellish quartet is January 23rd, there may be slight delays on the two CD editions but as usual you know that you can rest easy with F.O.A.D. because we will do everything to ship as quickly as possible in order to leave you satisfied and keep up with our crazy monthly schedule! As usual, and we’ll never get tired of saying it, don’t sleep on the diehard editions because they will run out quickly, if you look at last month’s batch, 4 out of 5 are all gone.

Posted in Atrofia Cerebral, Cripple Bastards, Releases, Sore Throat, Tumor, W.B.I. on December 21st, 2021 by foadmaster2022

Here we are with the final post closing another extremely vital and productive year for F.O.A.D. Records. Despite all the difficulties related to the pandemic, the increases in raw material costs and above all the never-before-seen congestion that has slowed down pressing plants beyond belief, in such tough times we managed to get to 36 releases out in 2021, which for us is truly an absolute record. A record that we’ll do everything we can to break even further in 2022, given the fact that we have an endless list of incredible releases that we can’t wait to reveal! All this is only thanks to all of you who have always continued to support us and appreciate our work – allowing us to keep things rolling strong and stable. To all those who have tenaciously continued to get our releases and of course to the various record stores and distros that helped us get them around: you know who you are and all our efforts and commitment are dedicated to you.

So, as previously announced – we are ending the year with a brain-splitting storm of relentless Noisecore, and the apocalyptic four consists of: SORE THROATWho killed Gumby?” LP, CRIPPLE BASTARDS1991: complete demo sessions and unreleased tracks” LP, W.B.I. / TUMORSplit” LP and ATROFIA CEREBRALMatanza extrema” LP.

All of them are out now, most preorders have been sent so you can hopefully receive them before Xmas. As expected, the diehard colored vinyl versions of all have been sold out on preorder, for some of them the black vinyl run is quite limited too, so we strongly suggest to act fast if you don’t want to miss them! F.O.A.D. Records and scareystore.com will continue to operate without interruption during the upcoming holidays, we’ll try our best to ship orders in real time, if some delays will occur it’ll be due to couriers and post offices.  Last one: stay tuned because our next round of announcements will be simply… UNREAL!!

More in detail about this month’s 4 x Noisecore releases:

SORE THROAT “Who killed Gumby?” LP (F.O.A.D. 250)

F.O.A.D. Records reaches its 250th release with an absolute gem of uncompromised aural butchery. SORE THROAT’s first ever recording immortalized in Rich Militia’s bedroom in 1987, now for the first time on vinyl! Quoting Rich himself: “22 tracks of cider swilling, system smashing, Evo sniffing, Tory punching, fashion hating, Nazi crushing, total horrendous noise!”. But wait, there are actually a lot more than 22 tracks: side B Includes a particularly rowdy live recording recorded in Cardiff in 1988, which is not just one bonus track as the band says – it’s the complete set, in surprisingly intense sound quality. No further introductions needed for UK’s generators of the most disturbing, sarcastic and booze-fueled Noise/Punk disgrace ever conceived on this planet! Insert with rare photos and liner notes by Rich Militia. GO FUCK A HORSE!! Watch the trailer HERE

CRIPPLE BASTARDS “1991: complete demo sessions + unreleased tracks” LP (F.O.A.D. 251)

CRUSHING NOISECORE MASSACRE444 SONGS!! Just in time for the deadline of its 30th anniversary, here’s the official reissue of CB’s debut demo ’91 (the previous one, recorded in 1989, was only handed to friends and never distributed with a real cover), originally released on the 3-Way split tape with K.S.G. and Dissonance. This special extended version includes a lot of rare extras, most of which have never been published up to now, not even on the massive “Age of vandalism” 4xCD boxset. This is what you’ll find inside:

Complete, uncut Demo ’91 session with lots of unreleased tracks (220!)
Original Demo session (64 tracks)
Unreleased split 7″ with K.S.G. (145 tracks)
Extra unreleased session (15 tracks)

Re-edited and mastered from the band’s tapes. Booklet with photos from that time, scans of the original demo and related flyers, lyrics and extensive liner notes/trivia by Giulio The Bastard. Italy’s most extreme and annihilating Noise/Grind in over 4 decades – this LP captures their most anti-music and annihilating phase when they moved from the early teenage sloppy thrash-punk delirium to a devastating wall of tout court Noisecore inspired by 7 M.O.N., Sore Throat, AxCx, Buka and similar audio terrorists. Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl ltd. to 250

W.B.I. / TUMOR Split LP (F.O.A.D. 228)

The dream death-match you always wanted to see but never happened before… two of the craziest and most representative bands of the early 90’s German Noise inferno team up together on the ultimate split LP! 56 SONGS of cannibalistic Noise/Grind ear-torture from the classic era 1992-1994. Unreleased sessions from both bands: W.B.I.’s side is the very last recording with Norris on drums (1994) and as they explain: “Up to now it was just dubbed to few close friends” and TUMOR’s side is a lost & found rehearsal (1992) not even included in their monolithic 4xCD discography boxset. Short and crazily fast Noisecore orgy in the sickest Teutonic tradition, quoting Tumor: “An enema with nitroglycerine“!! 12 page booklet with rare photos and an extensive Tumor history written by the band. Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in Atrofia Cerebral, Cripple Bastards, Sore Throat, Tumor, W.B.I. on December 9th, 2021 by foadmaster2022

Usually when we are about to announce the last round of releases of the year we say “ending the year with a blast”, in this case it would be more appropriate to say “ending the year crashing into a brickwall” as what we are about to announce is some of the most annihilating, disturbing and anti-musical sonic horror ever seen on F.O.A.D.!  And this also comes in conjunction with a great anniversary: we’re at our 250th release! Can you believe it? Seems like an eternity since when, at the end of 2009, we brought to light our first vinyl work, not counting the incredible DIY history of the previous years… And there is no craziest way to celebrate such a milestone than with a bombing of extreme noise butchery of the sickest type to catapult you back 30 years in a “2021 like 1991” hyperdimension: welcome to F.O.A.D.‘s NOISECORE MONTH!!

4 releases, 5 bands from the golden era 1987-1994, zillions of tracks! Here’s what our deadly cauldron for December consist of: SORE THROATWho killed Gumby?” LP – for the first time on vinyl, the first ever recording (1987) of these UK cider noise champions, enriched by a full live set as bonus, CRIPPLE BASTARDS1991: complete demo sessions + unreleased tracks” LP – the title explains it all, CB 30 years ago at the peak of their abominable Noisecore phase… 444 tracks (!!), W.B.I. / TUMORSplit” LP – unreleased, lost and found recordings (1992-1994) from both, two of Germany’s most ferocious and representative Noise/Grind sickos of that time and ATROFIA CEREBRALMatanza extrema” LP – their cult Demo 1989 for the first time on vinyl… catastrophic and hopeless Peruvian Noisecore, light years away from any sense of harmony or musical structure. So to sum it all up: SORE THROATWho killed Gumby?” LP, CRIPPLE BASTARDS1991: complete demo sessions + unreleased tracks” LP, W.B.I. / TUMORSplit” LP and ATROFIA CEREBRALMatanza extrema” LP are all available on preorder at www.scareystore.com  Some of these are very limited so we strongly suggest you to act fast, especially if you don’t want to miss the diehard versions on colored vinyl! The official release date for these has been set to December 20th, anyway we’ll try to be as quick as possible to ship everything before the Xmas chaos breaks in.

More in detail about each release:

SORE THROAT “Who killed Gumby?” LP (F.O.A.D. 250)

F.O.A.D. Records reaches its 250th release with an absolute gem of uncompromised aural butchery. SORE THROAT’s first ever recording immortalized in Rich Militia’s bedroom in 1987, now for the first time on vinyl! Quoting Rich himself: “22 tracks of cider swilling, system smashing, Evo sniffing, Tory punching, fashion hating, Nazi crushing, total horrendous noise!”. But wait, there are actually a lot more than 22 tracks: side B Includes a particularly rowdy live recording recorded in Cardiff in 1988, which is not just one bonus track as the band says – it’s the complete set, in surprisingly intense sound quality. No further introductions needed for UK’s generators of the most disturbing, sarcastic and booze-fueled Noise/Punk disgrace ever conceived on this planet! Insert with rare photos and liner notes by Rich Militia. GO FUCK A HORSE!! Watch the trailer HERE

CRUSHING NOISECORE MASSACRE444 SONGS!! Just in time for the deadline of its 30th anniversary, here’s the official reissue of CB’s debut demo ’91 (the previous one, recorded in 1989, was only handed to friends and never distributed with a real cover), originally released on the 3-Way split tape with K.S.G. and Dissonance. This special extended version includes a lot of rare extras, most of which have never been published up to now, not even on the massive “Age of vandalism” 4xCD boxset.

Complete, uncut Demo ’91 session with lots of unreleased tracks (220!)
Original Demo session (64 tracks)

The dream death-match you always wanted to see but never happened before… two of the craziest and most representative bands of the early 90’s German Noise inferno team up together on the ultimate split LP! 56 SONGS of cannibalistic Noise/Grind ear-torture from the classic era 1992-1994. Unreleased sessions from both bands: W.B.I.’s side is the very last recording with Norris on drums (1994) and as they explain: “Up to now it was just dubbed to few close friends” and TUMOR’s side is a lost & found rehearsal (1992) not even included in their monolithic 4xCD discography boxset. Short and crazily fast Noisecore orgy in the sickest Teutonic tradition, quoting Tumor: “An enema with nitroglycerine“!! 12 page booklet with rare photos and an extensive Tumor history written by the band.

With perfect timing on what we had previously announced, we’re glad to re-open the F.O.A.D.‘s gates of hell with a wicked triad of Italian Hardcore, Metal and Grind offerings. Our recipe for May consists of two well-known classics (Raw Power and Cripple Bastards) vs an obscure gem (Sagatrakavashen) that deserves to be discovered for its incredible charge of sincere ’80s Metal/Punk intensity. RAW POWERScreams from the gutter” 35th anniversary edition gatefold LP, CRIPPLE BASTARDSMisantropo a senso unico” 20th anniversary ed. gatefold LP+7″+CD and 2xCD digipack, SAGATRAKAVASHENSaga of darkness 1988-2018” 2xLP gatefold are all out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records! Most preorders have been shipped already, the last batch will be delivered to the post office tomorrow. The diehard glow-in-the-dark version of “Screams from the gutter” was blown away in few days by a preorder hurricane, we still have a few copies of “Misantropo a senso unico” on ltd. funeral purple vinyl and Sagatrakavashen on swirl orange vinyl, so act fast if you haven’t secured them yet to your collection! And keep an eye on F.O.A.D.‘s pages because we’ll soon start to reveal what’s brewing for the next month and believe us… we’ll leave you floored!

More in detail about our new releases:

RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” – 35th anniversary edition – gatefold LP + poster  (F.O.A.D. 051)

F.O.A.D. Records keeps up the unbreakable legacy with Italy’s absolute Hardcore heroes RAW POWER giving to their most classic album “Screams from the gutter” a proper deluxe edition to consecrate its 35th anniversary, a total quality-care version that makes justice to this timeless Hardcore milestone! Many of you will agree that this is the finest Italian HC offering ever made and easily one of the 10 world’s best Hardcore records of the 80’s… over 40.000 copies sold and still sounding fresh and up-to-date even when compared to modern HC standards. F.O.A.D.‘s treatment for this all time colossus consists of a thick glossy gatefold sleeve featuring lyrics and rare/unreleased photos and flyers, a square A2 replica of their cult gig-poster with Cro-Mags and Motörhead + a scrupolous mastering that respects in detail the original reels sound leaving full breathe and dynamics to its original impact and (raw) power!

17 gems of intense, no-frills HC with a bombastic drummer, fantastic guitar riffs and angry vocals. It’s a difficult comparison with their other early output – “You Are The Victim” and the excellent material released by BCT – but after all “Screams From The Gutter” marks RAW POWER‘s peak due to its superior production. The band’s simple yet instantly memorable riffs bring to mind Black Flag, Circle Jerks but also earlier groups like the Who, AC/DC, and of course, the Stooges. Throw in some cool harmonics, rockin’ solos, a cowbell, and a guitar player with hell-shriek vocals, a fucking huge afro and pointy shoes, and you have this flawless Hardcore classic!!  Watch the trailer HERE

CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Misantropo a senso unico” gatefold LP+CD+7″ and Digipack 2xCD  (F.O.A.D. 188)

Misantropo a senso unico” – Italy’s most classic Grindcore album ever – turns 20 and gets celebrated with a top notch deluxe edition enriched with a lot of extra contents. Originally released in 2000, CB‘s 2nd full length is an incredible outburst of hyperfast hate-fueled Grind rooted in the most furious and violent 80’s Italian Hardcore. 16 songs of manic speed scream-out-lungs hatred at its most nihilistic form, the band’s absolute manifesto. UK’s Terrorizer Mag quoted it as nr. 6 of the most essential Grindcore albums of all times. S.O.D. / Brutal Truth / Hemlock / Anthrax / Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker about this album: “Exquisitely insane hardcore grind that reminds me of why I got into all this shit back in the late Eighties”.

This package includes both the original version (2000) and the highly acclaimed redux edition (that adds a bonus track) made in 2013 starting from the master reels, mixed with feverish care at Toxic Basement Studio under constant supervision of the band, to keep the original rawness and rage completely intact and utterly reinforced.  And to make this version the most exhaustive ever, in the vinyl version you’ll also find the 7″EP “Il grande silenzio“, recorded few months before the album and including rawer versions of 5 hits later re-recorded on the LP.

The definitive untoppable re-edition of this masterpiece of bloodthirsty fury! Watch the trailer HERE

SAGATRAKAVASHEN “Saga of darkness 1988-2018” 2xLP gatefold (F.O.A.D. 202)

Ultra-raw, primordial Black Metal Punk from the frozen Alps! Enter the obscure myth of Pentacolar, a mysterious entity delivering some of the filthiest, visionary Metal/Punk ever conceived in Italy…  a unique case of radical isolationism completely stuck in a ’80s time-machine that never reached the internet era… even in his most recent recordings, all things are made as if the clock hand stopped in 1988: same instruments and recording equipment of when he started. No emails or social networks – all the communication for this release has been carried out via telephone calls, hand written letters and of course masters on audio cassettes. Musically, SAGATRAKAVASHEN sounds like an archaic mix of ancient Black Metal a la Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer with some HM incursions (think of early Death SS and Wratchild – of which you’ll also find a cover) all tied up by strong DIY ethics and a Hardcore imprint rooted in the Italian school of bands like Wretched, Eu’s Arse, Dioxina and so on.

This anthology collects the band’s complete discography 1988-2018 consisting of:

extremely rare “Forza Arcana” debut demo (1988)
Sexual Lust” EP (1989)
Borealis!” Demo (1991)
Omega Lucerna Onirica” EP (2018)

All ripped from Pentacolar’s mastertapes and specially remastered for vinyl! Gatefold sleeve with 20 page booklet including photos, flyers, original art, zine excerpts and an interesting biographical note that came together as the result of a telephone chat with this mastermind of darkness. If you’re fascinated by the roots of Italian blackened Metal and want to hear the most uncontaimnated clash of old school Metal performed with ’80s Hardcore energy, you can’t miss SAGATRAKAVASHEN!

Diehard marbled flaming orange vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl limited to 200 copies
