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!

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…”

And I’ll never forget the cow skull they had on stage with them”.  Sourced from the band’s tapes and specially mastered for vinyl for the most destructive sonic impact. 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!

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Disharmonic Orchestra, Insect Warfare, Ratos De Porao, Releases on January 8th, 2023 by foadmaster2022

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.

More in detail about each release:

IGNORANTES “Parece que tuvimos demasiados hijitos” LP (F.O.A.D. 260)

Raw, uncompromised nihilism from Chile’s premier fuzzed out hardcore punks! After multiple cassette only releases and 2 x 7″s here’s their first time on 12″… 13 tracks of snotty angry punk blending the simplistic in-your-face aggression of typical Latino-American taste with a noisy distorted approach recalling 80’s Japanese and British classics (Gai, Confuse, Chaos UK, Disorder). IGNORANTES stands above as one of the current gems of punk, their sound and attitude are totally spontaneous and out of the guts, without any ambition or intention. Quoting the singer Gabriel: “In the beginning we didn’t even try to go out and play. The idea was just to record once and that was it. Then we enjoyed the process of recording six or eight songs and that’s how it all started.” LP with large 6-panel foldout insert and lyric sheet.  Watch the trailer HERE

RAW POWER “Mine to kill” Gatefold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 081)

Official reissue of RP’s iconic 4th album from 1989 adding as bonus LP the incredible lost&found 1st studio take (12 TRACKS!) recorded in Italy still with Helder on drums, available for the first time on vinyl! Another uppercut in the jaws showing RP at the top of the game crossovering their manic riff-oriented Hardcore with the most intense and raging Thrash assault. Together with the incredible masterpiece “Screams from the gutter” this is hands down the fastest and tightest delivery in the band’s discography of the first decade. As for all their previous releases on F.O.A.D., this has been scrupulously remastered from the 1st generation master at Toxic Basement studio, taking the original dynamics and sonic impact to the most powerful and energetic stage. As explained by the band: RAW POWER began the recording of “Mine to kill” in Italy, at Umbi Studio, and when it came to an end there were discussions about the final product. The decision to re-record the album in England with a different producer saw Helder leave, the one most satisfied with the work they had just ended, and having already had a brief live experience with the other boys, Fabiano Bianco (Bloody Riot / Raff) replaced him on drums. The fourth album came out and the previous version was trashed. The bonus LP added to this version was what would have been “Mine to kill” at the beginning, feeling like the first real attempt to change the style and understanding even more how the personalities within Raw Power differed between them, something that has always characterized the band from any other reality”. Of those 12 tracks, 4 are completely unreleased as they haven’t been re-recorded on the final version of the album, and they simply kill! Raw, aggressive and dizzyingly precise Hardcore from Italy’s most iconic band of the unforgettable “furious years“! Comes in a thick gatefold sleeve with insert including rare photos and flyers of that time. Watch the trailer HERE

RATOS DE PORÃO “Necropolítica” Gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 275)

The return of Brazil’s undisputed Thrash-Punk masters! 8 years after the acclaimed “Seculo sinistro“, RxDxPx are back with another slab of relentless, intense and socially engaged Crossover Thrash in their unmistakeable style, this time with a stronger-than-ever political message reflecting their absolute contempt against the authoritarian government that has plagued Brazil in recent years. Musically, with a career spanning through 5 decades, RATOS DE PORAO show no sign of weakening and reconfirm themselves as the absolute champions of South American Hardcore! 10 songs full of Metal and Punk mayhem keeping it fresh and dynamic at the same time, led by Jao’s manic riffing and Gordo’s massive, vitriolic shouts of rage. With no doubts the world’s most famous basement rats have nailed it another time with a devastating album, still sounding exciting and relevant, which is an amazing achievement in Punk that most other bands of that age can’t claim! Housed in a full glossy gatefold jacket with 12″x12″ booklet.  Watch the trailer HERE

More in detail about each release:

IGNORANTES “Parece que tuvimos demasiados hijitos” LP (F.O.A.D. 260)

Raw, uncompromised nihilism from Chile’s premier fuzzed out hardcore punks! After multiple cassette only releases and 2 x 7″s here’s their first time on 12″… 13 tracks of snotty angry punk blending the simplistic in-your-face aggression of typical Latino-American taste with a noisy distorted approach recalling 80’s Japanese and British classics (Gai, Confuse, Chaos UK, Disorder). IGNORANTES stands above as one of the current gems of punk, their sound and attitude are totally spontaneous and out of the guts, without any ambition or intention. Quoting the singer Gabriel: “In the beginning we didn’t even try to go out and play. The idea was just to record once and that was it. Then we enjoyed the process of recording six or eight songs and that’s how it all started.” LP with large 6-panel foldout insert and lyric sheet.  Watch the trailer HERE
