On the last batch of F.O.A.D. releases – entirely dedicated to Japanese hardcore thrash – we left saying: “the next month will be 100% hardcore, with 4 incredible releases. We can’t say much yet but among the names there is a true giant of Italian HC that for a very long time has been kept frozen without any chance of being reissued. Stay tuned because it’s a sensational surprise!” And here we are finally revealing that giant: F.O.A.D. Records is proud to announce a teamwork with Italy’s Hardcore legends INDIGESTI to reissue their entire 80’s discography on vinyl! This will include the following 3 titles: “Sguardo realtà 1982-83” Gatefold 2xLP / “Osservati dall’inganno” Gatefold LP / “Live in Lübeck, 02.09.1987″ Gatefold LP+7”. INDIGESTI has been one of the earliest and most important bands in the first wave of Italian Hardcore through the legendary “furious years” and also one of the first to tour the States and Europe back then. These top quality reissues will feature loads of exclusive, unreleased extras and massive booklets with interviews, photos, flyers, original artworks and more!! So this month we’re starting with the first of these 3 gems: INDIGESTI “Sguardo realtà 1982-1983” 2xLP (including 1 LP full of extra unreleased sessions).  In conjunction with this we picked another Italian Hardcore masterpiece: “É arrivato Ah Pook” LP, the amazing debut demo (1986) by CONTROPOTERE, for the first time on vinyl. Then, by popular demand, we decided that in our catalog there must always be NERORGASMO‘s “Passione nera 1985-1993” 2xLP discography and so here we go with a new version, this time with a special diehard edition in black on white splatter vinyl. And last but not least, we completely change country to fly to another mecca of 80s Hardcore… New York!! We promised you more chapters in the reissue of the entire Unsound Music catalogue, and here we are with the long awaited SATAN’S CHEERLEADERS “What the hell” total discography! Unique hardcore, fast, nervous and highly original. Double LP with bonus CD compiling the entire discography, including two demos never released until now.

So to summarize: INDIGESTI “Sguardo realtà 1982-1983” gatefold 2xLP, CONTROPOTERE “É arrivato Ah Pook” gatefold LP, SATAN’S CHEERLEADERS “”What the hell – complete recordings 1982-1986” gatefold 2xLP+CD, NERORGASMO “Passione nera: discografia 1985-1993” gatefold 2xLP (4th pressing) are all available on preorder via The diehard colored/splatter versions are expected to go very quickly, so as always we strongly recommend you to act fast. Also, the release date for these 4 records is October 23rd, as usual we kindly request you to avoid to change your order once placed or stress us with unnecessary requests during the pre-order phase. Thank you!
