DEATH SS “The cursed concert – 30th anniversary edition” 2xLP, CREMATORIUM “Chained to torment”LP+CD and CRUCIFIXION “Necrolatry / Corpse decapitation” LP: preorders start NOW!!

After the avalanche of FOAD releases with which we used to bomb your turntables monthly, as you can see we’ve been forced to stop for a while and keep September off, this because there have been some important internal changes in the label’s staff and due to this we had to move and reorganize one of our warehouses and sort out tons of extra issues. It is undeniable that it was one of the most complicated and critical phases in the label’s history, but now we’re ready to get back on track stronger than ever.. the right words to introduce you this month are: BACK WITH A CURSE!!  We’re honored to announce our return to vinyl production with 3 wicked deliveries – all of them on the metal side of the FOAD underground excursions. Two bands from Italy vs one from Japan, two very obscure ones vs a highly popular and legendary name. Long story short, our recipe for October consists of:  DEATH SS “The cursed concert – 30th anniversary edition” 2xLP, the ultra-deluxe, definitive expanded version of this classic album by the unmatched lords of horror metal, CREMATORIUM “Chained to torment” LP+CD, one of the best Italian death metal demos from the early ’90s finally getting its deserved spotlight and CRUCIFIXION “Necrolatry / Corpse decapitation” LP, a pioneering, mysterious death metal unit from Japan rescued by your FOAD maniacs and brought back to life in a top quality edition!  So to sum it up: DEATH SS “Cursed concert – 30th anniversary edition” 2xLP, CREMATORIUM “Chained to torment” LP+CD and CRUCIFIXION “Necrolatry / Corpse decapitation” LP are all available for preorders via!

We’ll start to ship from October 21st.  As usual we strongly recommend to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored/splatter vinyl versions, most of them are extremely limited, of the DEATH SS band edition we only have a handful of copies as most have been obviously sent to the band. And to make up for the lost month, we already give you a sweet preview..: in November there will be 5x FOAD releases!!
