More in detail about each release:

DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA “Repulsive overtones?  1988-1989” 2xLP+CD and digipack 2CD  (F.O.A.D. 280)

The most exhaustive collection of early grinding works from this Austrian extreme metal legend! The roots of DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA, everything they recorded before their classic debut album “Expositionsprophylaxe”.
43 songs – over 100 minutes of music compiling the following works:
– Split LP with Pungent Stench (1989)

– “The unequalled visual response mechanism” Demo (1988)
– Rehearsal/Demo 1988
– bonus private rehearsal 1988 (totally unreleased!)
Grindcore inspired death metal in their own highly original style, blending angular, dissonant riffs with a unique rhythmic approach. From the very early demos and rehearsalsshowing the early steps in their inclination to channel heavy, lilting sounds in a deadly blender of hardcore edginessto the bone-crushing split LP and 1st EP recordings perfectly fitting the late ’80s Nuclear Blast death/grind panorama with cult bands such as Righteous Pigs, Defecation, Atrocity, Disastrous Murmur and Pungent Stench…  Ripped from the band’s archival sources and lovingly remastered for the most deafening sonic impact.  Vinyl version housed in a thick gatefold jacket including bonus CD and full colored booklet.  2xCD version in a 6 panel digipack with booklet. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 350 copies

RATOS DE PORÂO  “Isentön päunokü” 10″MLP (F.O.A.D. 290)

RxDxPx performing TERVEET KÄDET’s legendary 7″ ” Ääretön Joulu” (1982)!  One of the greatest singles in the history of hardcore punk masterfully reinterpreted in its entirety by Brazil’s stainless thrashcore kings.
You surely know what to expect from a titan showdown like this:  speed, ferocious energy and sheer hardcore intensity!  10 songs – recorded in 2022, all sung in Portuguese so that “Pissaa ja paskaa” becomes “Fuder a empregada”, “Outo maa” is “Rosca solta” and so on.  A must for every hardcore maniac! Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 350 copies

Diehard edition on splatter white melted with black vinyl limited to 150 copies

CRIPPLE BASTARDS  “From 1988 to 1991” 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 288)

An infamous collection of very early C.B. recordings (with the two piece line-up consisting of Alberto The Crippler on guitar/vocals and Giulio The Bastard on drums/vocals)..: 336 SONGS – ASTI NOISE-GRIND PUNK at its roughest stage. Official reissue of CB’s most circulated tape, originally released in 1992, finally consecrated on vinyl… an unbelievable bloodbath of lo-fi rawness going from the embryonic thrashing punk/grind days to the radical nihilism of the band’s noisecore phase. This tape was the roots of Italian grindcore and the link between the end of an era (the unforgettable furious years of Italy’s hardcore punk pioneers) and the beginning of a new one more based on noise and manic speed.  Ripped from pristine 1st generation sources and painstakingly remastered song by song at Toxic Basement Studio in 2022 to celebrate the 30th year anniversary since its first edition, this is hands down the best sounding version to date. Includes A2 insert/poster with scans of the original tape, photos, liner notes and a massive reproduction of the 1992 flyer. Watch the trailer HERE

All scrupulously mastered for the best sonic deflagration! Triple disc set served in a deluxe multi-panel digipack with exclusive art by Lucas Korte, with a massive booklet filled with original artworks, scans of all the included works, flyers and photos. Plus a bonus DVD with their complete gig at Annie’s that simply kills!  If you dreamed of having all the hard to find INSECT WARFARE singles and rarest recordings all gathered in the same place, this is finally the definitive chance!

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.

INSECT WARFARE “Entomological siege 2004/2009” BOXSET (3xLP+DVD and 2xCD+DVD) and SIEGE “Drop dead” 2xLP gatefold are out now on F.O.A.D. Records!!

Posted in Insect Warfare, Releases, Siege on July 23rd, 2019 by foadmaster2022

The wait is over and two of the most anticipated and announced F.O.A.D. releases since we started it all are finally ready to ship. Yes, INSECT WARFAREEntomological siege 2004/2009” Boxset (3xLP+DVD and 2xCD+DVD) and SIEGEDrop dead” 2xLP gatefold are out now!! The amount of preorders that we received for these has been unreal, so please be patient, we usually send all orders on the exact date that we release them but in this case it will take at least 2-3 extra weeks to get it all sorted out. Consider the fact that we have a limitation on the number of packages that we can ship daily because we have repeatedly clogged the local postal warehouses with indescribable quantities of packages and Mbags, so we have to stick to a certain number of units to be mailed daily. This is is slowing things down a bit, but we’re doing our best to be as quick as possible. Some orders have been already sent in the last few days, some are going out soon. For any enquiries, feel free to email us but once again: be patient.

The diehard boxset versions of INSECT WARFARE (colored vinyl sets + slipmat or patch) have been completely sold out on preorder. We still have the black vinyl version that has the same audio and visual contents. And the stunning 2xCD+DVD box of course.

As for SIEGE, we still have a handful of copies of the diehard splatter versions (approx 20 of each) so don’t miss the chance, be fast!

And the other giant we had in the pipeline is nothing else by SIEGE, hands down one of the most important bands worldwide if you think about who started it all and influenced a universe of psychos thirsty for the fastest and most aggressive Hardcore Thrash violence. They were playing at the speed of light in a time when crossing certain limits was still completely inconceivable. And you know what to expect when a band like SIEGE gets the F.O.A.D. treatment.. the most exhaustive, detailed and made with heart discography ever seen.
