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
