Posted in Boris, Human Gas, Manbiki Chocolate, Military Shadow, Sarushibai on June 10th, 2021 by foadmaster

New F.O.A.D. preorders, and for the umpteenth time a month entirely focused on Japanese Metal/Punk/Noise bands! Those of you who’ve got the “Legend of Kansai Hardcore” book that we’ve recently published have certainly noticed that there’s an entire appendix dedicated to the many Japanese releases that we’ve done through the years, and as promised this is a path that will keep going strong forever. So here’s another apocalyptic four to be added to that hellish circle, this time we’re starting from an absolute myth – BORIS, with a special edition of their latest effort, “NO” – which is undoubtedly their punkiest album to date, then at popular demand a new edition of ROSENFELD‘s “Demo 1991” LP with different colors (the previous got instantly sold out on preorder) and then digging deeper underground, a little big gem of traditional Japanese Hardcore Punk, the split between SARUSHIBAI and MANBIKI CHOCOLATE, and the new effort by Tokyo’s Metal/Punk maniacs MILITARY SHADOW! So, to sum it all up: BORISNO” LP / Picture LP + flexi disc, ROSENFELDDemo 1991” (2nd edition) LP, SARUSHIBAI / MANBIKI CHOCOLATE Split LP and MILITARY SHADOWViolent reign” LP are all available on preorder!

But wait, there’s more:  we had something else in the pipeline for some time and we thought this was the best month to combine it with… HUMAN GAS official merchandising! We’re honored to announce that F.O.A.D. Records has taken care to print 2 different t-shirt design and a limited hooded sweatshirt for this legendary Hokkaido Hardcore horde and they’re up for preorders in conjunction with the previously mentioned vinyl releases. As always we strongly recommend you to act fast, especially if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl versions, that are expected to sell out in few days!

More in detail about each release:

BORIS “No” LP / Picture LP + flexi disc (F.O.A.D. 234)

The most Hardcore-infused BORIS album to date, their 26th full length recorded in self-isolation due to the pandemic. This is how BORIS themselves describe the mood behind this album: “A mirror that gathers and reflects people’s negative energy at a different angle, one that is positive. That is the power and potential of the dark, extreme, and brutal noise music that we have experienced up to this point“. Previously released in Japan only by Blood Sucker Records on CD and LP (both versions already sold out and getting pricey on Discogs or elsewhere), this exclusive F.O.A.D. edition is the first internationally distributed and it adds a bonus flexi disc with an unreleased version of the band’s cover of “Fundamental Error” by GUDON, featuring Guy (ORIGIN OF M, ex-GUDON) on bass!!

To sum it all up: “NO” balances a respect for Japanese hardcore tradition with uncompromising idiosyncrasy, resulting in one of the most brazen and punishing Boris albums to date. The whole album keeps a nervous pace where their familiar sludgy doom atmospheres – that they always deliver with unmatched apocalyptic heaviness – give way to roaring Hardcore bursts in a perfectly flowing crescendo.  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Picture disc LP with bonus flexi disc (red) limited to 250 copies

Aside/Bside red and black splatter vinyl with bonus flexi disc (red) limited to 250 copies

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

Available in two different versions:

Diehard swirl blue vinyl (180 grams) with white silkscreened print on B-side limited to 200 copies

Solid black vinyl (180 grams) with blue silkscreened print on B-side limited to 300 copies

SARUSHIBAI / MANBIKI CHOCOLATE Split LP (F.O.A.D. 237)

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

Available in two different versions:

Diehard flaming orange/red swirl vinyl (180 grams) limited to 100 copies

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

Diehard cement grey marble vinyl (180 grams) with red silkscreen print on B-side limited to 100 copies

Posted in Disarmo Totale, Human Gas, Releases, Stali Nism, Wrong Boys on October 5th, 2020 by foadmaster

The wait is finally over and after yet another delay from the pressing plant, we have received all the F.O.A.D. releases that were scheduled for September, they all look and sound great, so trust us – it was worth the extra week that it took to get them delivered here. Thanks for your patience and for the countless preorders! We are starting to ship now, please keep in mind that the amount of packages that we have to go through is unbelievable, so it’ll take time to mail everything. For this reason we are postponing all our October releases to November, looking at this from a certain perspective it’s sad – you all know that we like to bomb you with new records monthly, but other hand it’s useful to avoid congesting our schedule too much and to let you receive our records with the right timing leaving some breathe between one and another.

This said, we are glad to announce that HUMAN GASSuper Violence Hardcore 1984-1989” Boxset, HUMAN GAS / STALI NISM split 7″, v.a. “ESTAMOS EN LA SIMA” 2 x LP, WRONG BOYSIl suono é distruzione 1982-1984” LP and DISARMO TOTALE1982-1983” LP are all out now on F.O.A.D. Records.  The HUMAN GAS / STALI NISM split 7″ got sold out on preorder but don’t worry, we’re planning another pressing in the early months of 2021, all the diehard colored vinyl versions of each release are sold out. We still have few copies of each on BLACK VINYL but you better hurry up because there aren’t many left! Once again, thanks for your support and be patient – we’re doing our best to send all preorders as quickly as possible. See you again in November for another lethal round of sonic aberrations!

More in detail about each release:

HUMAN GAS “Super Violence Hardcore 1984-1989” Boxset (F.O.A.D. 210)

Double LP + CD + DVD + book + extra casewrapped box. A work of love and dedication, the result of an incredible journey from the F.O.A.D. headquarters to a remote country-town in the middle of the Hokkaidō island, northern Japan, to meet the band members and put together the most exhaustive collection of all their available recordings, spanning from 1985 to 1987.  Here you get the ultra-complete discography of HUMAN GAS, including a lot of unreleased material… Musically, this is some of the rawest and most violent Hardcore ever spawned from the darkest lairs of the ’80s Japanese underground. Tracks from the split 7″ with Stali Nism (1985), “Noice and Hardcore” 1st Demo (1986), “Explosives” 2nd Demo (1986), tracks from “Street Punk in Obihiro” Omnibus tape (1986), “Lack luster” 3rd Demo + extra studio songs (1987), unreleased studio jam session with members of Human Gas + Stali Nism + Middle Class (1987).

Plus there’s an extra CD with a soundboard live take from 1986 that sounds killer, assorted live recordings 1986-1987 and an instrumental version of their cult Demo “Explosives“. And to complete the massacre, you’ll also find a DVD with two complete live sets (their only gig in Sapporo, “Bessie Hall“, 1987 and one in Obihiro’s “Rocking Hall“, 1987) showing these raging maniacs in action. 79 TRACKS!! All this mastered from 1st generation sources provided by the band, transferred and restored with total care and attention to detail at Toxic Basement Studio. Trifold jacket housed in a casewrapped outer boxset, 24 page full colored booklet with loads of rare photos, flyers, memorabilia and some brief liner notes put together talking with the band members. Named after a Kuro song, Human Gas were the most destructive and iconic Northern Japan’s answer to the noisy and violent Noise/Punk scene that was growing in the opposite side of the country with bands like Gai, Confuse and Kuro themselves!

Add the fact that their songs were more structured, solid and as the title of this anthology suggests: violent. The Hokkaidō area is definitely one of the most fascinating and mysterious when it comes to early pioneers of the Japanese Hardcore panorama… L.S.D., 畜生, Slang, Tranquillizer, Deef, , F.U.P., Gaizin, Napalm, Noise-Decay and many more were all based there. Human Gas still stands as one of the most respected names for their genuine anger and the highly original and influential musical approach. Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl ltd to 500 copies

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

HUMAN GAS / STALI NISM Split 7″  (F.O.A.D. 209)

Official reissue of  the rarest Japanese Hardcore/Punk 7″ of the ’80s, a true holy grail in every collector’s dreams. The existence of this record has been doubted for years and for some time it has even been removed from Discogs because nobody had evidence of its existence, until a connection with the band members was found. Originally released by the band in 1985, less than 100 copies were pressed and only handed to local friends in the Honbetsu/Obihiro area. What you get here is a pristine replica of the original with the audio sourced from the 1/4″ master reels, same artwork-sleeve, same inserts included. A real treasure from two of the most osbscure and violent Hokkaido Punk units. Human Gas attack with their angry and distorted Hardcore, with early versions of their classic rippers “Poison” and “Question“, Stali Nism, as the name suggests – were mostly influenced by The Stalin and deliver an equally energetic and fast Punk, filled with sincere intensity. Limited to 500 copies, all on black vinyl.  Watch the trailer HERE

SOLD OUT

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

v.a. “ESTAMOS EN LA SIMA (1989)” 2xLP Gatefold  (F.O.A.D. 194)

Quoting the liner notes included in this record: “This recording was made in 1989, in the basement of Alejandro Restrepo’s house (Ex-Tenebrarum), in a neighborhood called “Niquía de Bello” in the suburbs of Medellin, Colombia. […] We hope that this new edition helps to reflect the history of blood and noise we lived back then.” That’s exactly the point: a history of blood and noise portrayed by some of the most angerful and violent realities from the South American underground of the ’80s. What we have here is one of the greatest Colombian Hardcore compilations, right there with “La ciudad podrida” and “Rodrigo D. no futuro“, for the very first time on vinyl getting the deserved F.O.A.D. treatment. ATAQUE DE SONIDO, CRIMEN IMPUNE, DISKORDIA, BASTARDOS SIN NOMBRE, HERPES, DEXKONCIERTO, HP/HC…  7 bands ranging from Noisecore/Punk to classic LatinoAmerican Hardcore and even Grindcore in the case of HERPES, all of them characterized by an incredible amount of rawness and uncompromised fury.

Compiled under direct supervision of the people that put this project together back then, audio restored and mastered from the best sounding sources in existence, from a selection of 5 different first generation tapes that were used to dub copies of the original version. Unreleased bonus tracks on the HP/HC side. Gatefold sleeve, a stunning 20 page full colored booklet with a wide selection of photos and flyers of each band, liner notes. 180 gram vinyl! If you’re into South American Punk/Hardcore at the crudest form, this is a mandatory add on to your collection! All copies pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl, ltd. to 350 copies

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

WRONG BOYS “Il suono é distruzione 1982-1984” LP (F.O.A.D. 201)

Raw and pissed off Italian Hardcore/Punk from the furious years! WRONG BOYS started in late 1981 in the small boring city of Broni, nearby Pavia, 1 hr drive from Milano. Because of the provinciality of their area, they didn’t get the deserved recognition, apart from a handful of tracks included in the legendary “Raptus” comp. LP’s on Meccano Records and a few more appearences here and there. Members of this band later moved on to form the Hardcore powerhouse called BLAXFEMA. This LP collects all the WRONG BOYS‘ recordings in existence, starting with their fantastic Demo 1982 recorded at Brown Studio, the same place where RAW POWER did their classic demo 1983!  Then there’s the songs from “Raptus – Negazione e superamento” v.a. LP, “Autogestione!” comp. tape plus 8 unreleased ones (rehearsal 1982 and live) that sound bloody raw and introduce their early steps as a pure Punk band before leaning towards typical Italian HC territories. 4 page full colored insert with rare photos, flyers and original art.

If you’re like us a maniac for the first wave of Italian Hardcore/Punk, this is that kind of sloppy and sincere HC tinged Punk that in some parts recalls bands like Blue Vomit, Rappresaglia, Uart Punk just to mention a few. Limited to 300 copies on 180 gram vinyl! Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl ltd to 200

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

DISARMO TOTALE “1982/1983” LP (F.O.A.D. 199)

Just when you thought that there was nothing left to unearth from the bloody pit of the 80’s Italian Hardcore… another lost & found gem brought to light by F.O.A.D. Records! DISARMO TOTALE were a shortly lived trio from the area of Ferrara. In the past they were only known in the most inner circles of diehard collectors for their rare demotape that circulated in extremely scarce quantity, probably less than 50. Members of this band later joined IMPACT on the classic “Solo odio” line-up, easily among the 10 best Italian HC records from those years. In recent times they dug from the archives a full live-in-the-studio session made back then that has all their songs performed with unbelievable intensity and good sound quality. Rabid, political Hardcore, 21 tracks combining speed and that very specific vibe that distinguished the Italian bands of that era… roughly, think of a mix of Wretched, Impact, 5° Braccio and some UK Punk influences (Crass, Rudimentary Peni are the first coming to mind when listening).

The audio masters were assembled directly by the band as well as the complete packaging/art, coming with a printed inner sleeve with lyrics and original excerpts/photos of those years. If released back then, this record would be equally worshipped as bands like Eu’s Arse, Underage and Impact themselves, this came as a total surprise to us and it’s guaranteed that if you’re an old school Hardcore maniac you’re going to love it! Limited edition of 300 copies on 180 gram vinyl.  Watch the trailer HERE
