Posted in Cripple Bastards, Events, Raw Power, Releases on August 27th, 2019 by foadmaster2022

Just a few days to go before the RAW POWER & CRIPPLE BASTARDS tour in Japan begins… it’s the 3rd time that CB hit the land of the Rising Sun and the very first one for Raw Power, they have never been there in 38 years of existence.

To support this incredible set of gigs F.O.A.D. Records has prepared a special ultra limited surprise… a CRIPPLE BASTARDS / RAW POWER split flexi disc EP (ltd. to 250 copies hand numbered by GTB!) including 2 unreleased tracks x each band!!
This has been recorded and put together in record times and arrived here just yesterday! The CB side consists of a new song called “Ai Confini Di Quel Che Puoi Dire” and a cover of The Gerogerigegege “Ji” while RP deliver 2 brand new ones!

You know what to expect: a sheer dose of ultrafast and hateful Hardcore/Grind ferocity from the Bastards and a solid thrashing Italian Hardcore attack from the pioneering legends Raw Power! This EP will be only available at the 6 Japanese shows that will take place here:

UNITED AS ONE FESTIVAL terza edizione: prime conferme!

Posted in Events on March 27th, 2017 by foadmaster2022

F.O.A.D. Records e MP Promotion, in collaborazione con P.H.C. sono lieti di presentare lo “UNITED AS ONE FESTIVAL III OPEN AIR“, che si terrà Venerdì 30 Giugno presso il campo sportivo del Circolo Kaleidos in Via Bologna 1 a Poviglio (RE). Il festival giunto quest’anno alla terza edizione, unisce come sua tradizione nomi di spicco della scena Thrash, Hardcore e Grind internazionale!

Headliner della serata saranno i mitici D.R.I. americani, veri e propri capostipiti dell’Hardcore più veloce ed adrenalinico e di quello che nella seconda metà degli anni ’80 si è evoluto in Crossover/Thrash. Attivi dal 1982, i Dirty Rotten Imbeciles hanno influenzato una miriade di band dal Metal al Punk (su tutti gli Slayer, che li hanno omaggiati con la spettacolare cover di “Violent Pacification” nel loro “Undisputed Attitude”). Per l’occasione presenteranno i brani dal loro nuovo EP “But wait… there’s more!” insieme a una mitragliata di classici dai loro album anni Ottanta come “Crossover”, “Dealing with it” e il “Dirty Rotten LP”. Data esclusiva Italiana!

Altro ospite di tutto rispetto, sempre dagli Stati Uniti (per l’esattezza da Portland, Oregon) i WEHRMACHT!! Attaccano per la seconda volta i palchi Italiani (il loro tour del 2010 è rimasto impresso a tanti per gli show devastanti affiancati dai Cripple Bastards), con il loro Thrashcore al cardiopalma lanciato a velocità disumane. Anche loro come i D.R.I. e i Cryptic Slaughter sono stati tra i capostipiti del crossover anni 80 che fondeva la furia e la rapidità dell’Hardcore con l’impatto e la tecnica del Thrash. Questa sarà la loro unica data Europea e in scaletta potete aspettarvi una selezione da infarto che attingerà dai classici “Shark Attack” e “Biermacht”… United shoebrothers!

Ad estremizzare ulteriormente la serata ci penseranno i GENERAL SURGERY Svedesi, maestri del Gore/Grind “patologico” più efferato. Formati nel 1988 da componenti di Carbonized e Dismember, questo malatissimo combo Scandinavo ha saputo combinare con precisione letale la scuola Gore/Grind dei primi Carcass con le sonorità tipiche del Death Metal Svedese. Anche loro non si vedono in Italia dal 2010 e promettono un repertorio che ripercorre tutta la loro sanguinaria carriera. Unica data in Italia!

A breve verranno annunciate le altre band che completeranno il bill del festival.
