Posted in Discharge, Krunch, NYX Negativ, Oral, Releases, Tatuerade Snutkukar on June 3rd, 2024 by foadmaster2022

4 x Swedish hardcore rippers and the definitive, expanded version of the classic DISCHARGE “Noise not music” book enriched by a 4 x CD set with rare recordings 1980-1983… this is what we offer you this month, nothing more and nothing less! Another glorious hardcore death-race on F.O.A.D., the result of the usual manic work of painstaking research and assembly.  And a pairing that fits perfectly: there’s no doubt that Discharge had a strong influence on the first wave of Scandinavian hardcore, so putting together 4 x Swedish HC ragers from the 80s and a mammoth audio & visual collection on Discharge from their 1980-19893 heyday is surely a formula that will be enjoyed by many… All the Swedish releases have been made with the support of Uproar Records and consist of: the fuzzy and irreverent TATUERADE SNUTKUKAR, with their primitive and rough hardcore “trash” attack; the obscurity of ORAL, with straightforward hardcore in pure Scandinavian school (think Anti Cimex, Totalitär, Avskum); KRUNCH – on their second F.O.A.D. release, this time a complete collection of all their singles released in the 80s, and NYX NEGATIV with by popular demand a reissue of the LP discography already released on F.O.A.D. two years ago.  What to say about the DISCHARGE book, to quote the mastermind that assembled this beast, namely Rich Walker of the legendary SORE THROAT: “In 1980, four teenagers from the darkest depths of Stoke On Trent exploded onto the world punk scene with the subtlety of a nuclear warhead detonation. Collected across this revised and expanded edition of 4 x CD’s, and accompanied by a hardback book with 100 full-color pages of rare band photos, flyers and original magazine features, is a monstrously detailed historical dissemination documenting the band’s unrelenting assault upon HC punk audiences worldwide”.

To sum up, June on F.O.A.D. Records will delight you with the following sonic crimes: DISCHARGE “Noise not music 1980-1983” BOOK + 4xCD, TATUERADE SNUTKUKAR “Complete Noise 1982-1986…” LP+CD, ORAL “Dystopisk Framtid” LP, KRUNCH “Honänu – En samling 1983/1989” LP and NYX NEGATIV “Kalrshamns Punks 1981-1984” LP (2nd edition). Preorders are up now at www.scareystore.com !!  As always, a few recommendations that we ask you to read and keep in mind: we have made available two different bundles at a discounted price.. one for those who want to grab all of this month’s releases together, and one including only the diehard versions of the 4 x Swedish HC releases. We suggest you to act fast because they are time limited and will expire before the out-now date (June 17).  PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OPENING OF THESE PRE-SALES WE HAVE ALSO APPLIED 10% OFF ON ALL VINYL AND CDS IN OUR HUGE MAILORDER CATALOG AT WWW.SCAREYSTORE.COM – don’t miss your chance!  And very last thing: we repeat it all the time but few people pay attention…the amount of orders we have to process daily is really challenging and stressful, especially when it comes to a pre-orders phase like this. Please don’t bombard us with requests that put us in a bind such as additions or replacement of items after the pre-order is complete, address changes, anxiety about getting the tracking number right away, and so on.  This wastes a lot of our time and slows down our schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

And now going into more detail about this month’s releases:

One of the leading names in raw Mexican hardcore along with MASACRE 68, SS-20, M.E.L.I., ATOXXICO etc.. Comes with a stunning 16 page book with a history of the demo, flyers and rare photos from that era. Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in Ediondo, Janky, Kagada De Perro, Military Shadow, Releases on April 5th, 2024 by foadmaster2022

F.O.A.D.’s production chain is unstoppable, and after a few months kept at the rate of 4 releases at a time, we increase further and attack you with a new round of no less than 5 vinyl threats!! For this batch there is no thematic common threads as we usually do, we have 4 different countries and far apart eras–from 1983 to the present day. What may be kind of the common point of it all is that it is raw and uncompromising hardcore, ranging from the more primitive and crude approach of KAGADA DE PERRO to the more metallic and apocalyptic moods of Tokyo’s MILITARY SHADOW.  We have two Latin American bands – Mexico’s KAGADA DE PERRO and Chile’s EDIÖNDÖ, two Japanese – MILITARY SHADOW and the extended reissue of the legendary JANKY, and dulcis in fundo a fantastic compilation from the former Yugoslavia: “BUKA I URLIK (1983)” featuring NECROPHILIA, HERPES DISTRESS and SOLUNSKI FRONT. So to get straight to the point.. a very international month spanning 4 decades and offering you the following gems: JANKY “Dead society 1983-1987” LP+CD (new edition), MILITARY SHADOW “The age of cobalt bomb” LP, V.A. “BUKA I URLIK (1983)” LP+CD, EDIÖNDÖ “Toxic love” LP and KAGADA DE PERRO “Victimas de horror” LP.

They’re all available on preorder via www.scareystore.com  As is now customary, we are also treating you with a heavily discounted bundle so that you can buy the diehard versions of everything in bulk and save a lot! Act fast because this is a short-timed offer that will expire on the release date (April 20) if not sooner.  What else to add? This month we’re attending the Mega Record & CD fair in Den Bosch, Holland, an unmissable event for us since over 10 years. You can find us in our usual double booth at number 128, and of course we will premiere these 5 brand new monsters right there, so if you attend the fair and want to grab them, come to visit us!  Finally a small request that we don’t get tired of repeating every time: as you can see we’re in a very busy month, 5 releases in a row, the fair in Holland that sees all our staff away for several days. Don’t bomb us with requests during the pre-order phase, especially unnecessary things like substitutions or additions of items, changes of address or second thoughts of any kind… these are dynamics that slow us down a lot, generate stress and don’t allow us to process shipments with our usual fast and well-organized flow. Thanks!

And now here are the more detailed descriptions on each title:

JANKY “Dead society 1983-1987” LP+CD **NEW EDITION** (F.O.A.D. 163)

V.A. “BUKA I URLIK (1983)” LP+CD  (F.O.A.D. 337)

Official reissue of this essential, raw Yugo hardcore compilation, originally released on cassette tape in 1983, two years before the equally legendary “Hard-Core Ljubljana” v.a. LP… The first ever HC compilation from Belgrade featuring: NECROPHILIA, HERPES DISTRESS, SOLUNSKI FRONT. Special edition sourced from first generation masters provided by No Profit Tapes, giving this iconic compilation the well-deserved quality treatment that does justice after the previous cheaply made version. A devastating clash between the distorted, furious hardcore of NECROPHILIA and HERPES DISTRESS in full line with the most extreme Euro chaos-punk classics of that era (Wretched, Anti-Cimex, Chaos UK), contrasting with the more elaborate but still fast-paced approach of SOLUNSKI FRONT.  LP reproducing the v.a. cassette in its entirety and bonus CD with the same contents as the LP + 8 rare bonus tracks by NECROPHILIA. Gatefold jacket + insert including scans of the original cassette, rare photos and liner notes by Gvido Obradovic, the mastermind that released it on tape in total DIY spirit back then… Assembled with the unfailing collaboration of Guranje S Litice.

Primitive, rude hardcore punk with scraping hoarse vocals backed by a crude, fuzzy and totally DIY basement recording. Quoting the band: ” this demo was recorded in 1991 in the house of a friend named Cintia in Colonia Diaz Ordaz in Ecatepec Edo. mex, we recorded it on a homemade recorder in the living room of Cintia’s house; a friend named Jose Angel (nicknamed “el mopet”) was the one who was at the controls of the recorder putting pause in each song, it was all made in one session… it’s worth mentioning that most of the equipment was lent by a gang known as “los águilas” from col. nueva Mèxico in Ecatepec”.
One of the leading names in raw Mexican hardcore along with MASACRE 68, SS-20, M.E.L.I., ATOXXICO etc.. Comes with a stunning 16 page book with a history of the demo, flyers and rare photos from that era. Watch the trailer HERE

Detailed reviews of each release:

CRIONIC “The land which once were” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 336)

Official reissue of one the greatest and best sounding demos in the history of ’80s Danish speed thrashin’ metal! The perfect blend between early METALLICA and EXODUS with the mittel-European school of DESTRUCTION and KREATOR driven by memorable riffs, a solid rhythmic base, all channeled into their own unmistakable style. Quoting Fenriz (Darthrone): “…over the (funeral) moon about the fact that FOAD Records is releasing one of my favourite demos on vinyl! Truly a lost gem… This recording kind of created their own land within a very crowded metal world at the time, an exciting epic introvert world of its own.”  LP with complete demo 1986, bonus CD with the demo +  bonus rehearsals 1986-1987 including unreleased songs. 16 page booklet with photos, lyrics, liner notes, an introduction by Fenriz and scans of the original cassette artwork. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 200 copies

INCINERATOR “Mass genocide / Live into the crematorium” LP (F.O.A.D. 325)

Official reissue of the 2 cult demotapes of this insanely fast thrash horde hailing from Sicily!
– “Mass genocide” (1987)
– “Live into the crematorium” (1986)
One of the many underrated gems of the Italian death-core scene of the 80s, not far from the maniacally fast style of their fellow countrymen Schizo but recommended even to fans of the golden years of Cogumelo Rec.!
An incendiary holocaust of blasting speeds and vitriolic riffs for a radical and aggressive thrash assault that also harkens back to the faster hardcore of that era. For the first time on vinyl (forget the unofficial, bad-sounding lathe cut 10″s that came out a few months ago) remastered from the best sound sources in existence and finally giving these incredible recordings the proper quality-treatment. Includes an insert with photos, flyers and scans of the original demos. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 200 copies

Diehard swirl orange vinyl limited to 100 copies

SCHIZO “Main frame collapse” LP  (F.O.A.D. 010)

Ultra fucking FAST sicilian thrash-core mayhem!! New F.O.A.D. reissue faithfully reproducing the original pressing on Crime Records. One of the earliest bands in Italy to introduce the blast-beat formula on Thrash/Death songs. This is one of the most representative extreme metal records out of Italy’s 80s scene. Insanely THRASHING and VIOLENT!! If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem NECRODEATH (as a matter of fact, half of the songs on this album had NECRODEATH’s former screamer Ingo on vocals), SCHIZO were among the first pioneers of hyper-speed driven thrash emerging from Italy, that in more simple words equals “the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories”. Housed in a reverse board jacket with the addition of an insert with lyrics and rare photos of the time. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in the following versions:

Solid black vinyl limited to 250 copies

Diehard splatter white on red vinyl limited to 150 copies

BULLDOZER “The exorcism” LP (F.O.A.D. 050)

New edition with Japanese OBI strip mocking up the style of the Japanese pressing of “The day of wrath” on Far East Metal Syndicate. The extremely rare BULLDOZER demotape 1984 with the kult “Fallen angel” 7″ added as a bonus. One of the most incredible finds in FOAD’s hunting career: only 3 copies of this demo exist, one sent to Roadrunner, one to King Diamond, and one exhumed in 2013 in AC Wild’s basement and delivered to us for the highest quality treatment. This is the recording that got Bulldozer signed with Roadrunner in 1984 and it sounds killer – different and rawer versions of the classics that ended up on their slasher debut “The Day of Wrath.” Dark and demonic black/speed metal from the wildest guts of Italy’s 80s metal inferno, for all those who worship the early releases of Venom, Bathory and Possessed; plus, the “Fallen angel” session adds that Motörhead touch that makes this record an instant masterpiece of rawness. See how AC Wild introduced these unreleased demo recordings: “This tape was sent to Roadrunner and Roadrunner put us under contract in 1984. It was also sent to King Diamond to ask if he would be interested in being the producer of our album, but he declined saying this stuff sounded ‘too Punk’!!!”  Comes with an insert with liner notes, rare photos and scans of the “Fallen angel” 7″, including the previously unreleased alternate sleeve version. Watch the trailer HERE

Fog-white vinyl limited to 250 copies

CRIONIC “The land which once were” LP+CD, INCINERATOR “Mass genocide / Live into the crematorium” LP, SCHIZO “Main frame collapse” LP and BULLDOZER “The exorcism” LP pre-orders start NOW!!

Posted in Bulldozer, Crionic, Incinerator, Releases, Schizo on March 4th, 2024 by foadmaster2022

This month on F.O.A.D. Records is a completely different beast than previous ones in recent memory, which had been focused almost entirely on 80s hardcore punk. As you all know, our label (formerly a fanzine) was born at a time when there was a fantastic blending of punk and metal.  Over the years we have always continued to keep this spirit alive by alternating months entirely HC to others more dedicated to metal in all its forms. And here we are finally at a new all-metal round on F.O.A.D. Records. Specifically, all totally THRASH!!

3x classic Italian bands and 1 from Denmark. On the Italian side we have reissued two LPs that were previously (several years ago) already released by F.O.A.D.: the legendary SCHIZO “Main frame collapse”, this time in a version completely faithful to the 1989 original on Crime Rec. (and thus arriving to its 35th anniversary) and BULLDOZER “The exorcism” LP, in a new special edition with OBI strip in Japanese designed on the same line as the old Far East Metal Syndicate pressing of “The day of wrath” LP.  On the total novelty side instead we have the vinyl collection of the mind-blowing demotapes by Sicily’s INCINERATOR, and last but not least a real gem for all lovers of those 80s demos that have a beauty and importance equal to a real album: the Danish CRIONIC, often mentioned by Fenriz / Darkthrone as one of the most impactful demos in 80s Scandinavian metal.   So to summarize: CRIONIC “The land which once were” LP+CD, INCINERATOR “Mass genocide / Live into the crematorium” LP, SCHIZO “Main frame collapse” LP and BULLDOZER “The exorcism” LP are all available for pre-order via scareystore.com!  As usual two recommendations: 1) hurry up if you want to get the limited editions on colored/splatter vinyl, 2) during the pre-order phase don’t pester us with unnecessary requests such as order changes, address changes, additions, afterthoughts of all sorts – because by doing so we go into stress and all this slows down our work which makes sure that all pre-orders are processed in time with the release date, which in this case is March 18. As is now customary we have made available a ltd. bundle for those who want to purchase the diehard editions of all 4 titles in bulk, you can find it at this link and it will expire on the out now date, so act fast!
