More in detail about this month’s rippers:

RATOS DE PORÃO “Necropolítica” CD (F.O.A.D. 275/CD)

The return of Brazil’s undisputed Thrash-Punk masters! 8 years after the acclaimed “Século 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 PORÃO 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 Jão’s manic riffing and Gordo’s massive, vitriolic shouts of rage. With no doubts 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! Watch the trailer HERE

PIG CHILDREN  “The torment continues… 1983-1986” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 232)

Ripping fast anger-driven Hardcore from Orange County, California! Complete discography collecting their classic “Blood for the state” 12″ (1985), 10 song demo 1983 plus a bonus CD with a killer soundboard live set captured at Long Beach’s notorious Fenders Ballroom (those familiar with our previous works will notice other FOAD anthologies featuring stuff recorded there… Cryptic Slaughter and FCDN Tormentor just to mention some). 31 tracks of what the band describes as “Loud, aggressive music with an anti-system and fuck you attitude!“. To highlight the importance of this release, you’ll find included a stunning 20 page full colored booklet in full F.O.A.D. tradition – loaded with incredible photos, rare flyers and an extensive history of the Pig Children Tribe… A hidden gem in the annals of the So.

INSANITY DEFENSE “Asylum – Complete recordings 1983-1985” LP (F.O.A.D. 257)

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK… HARDCORE!!  Blazing Hardcore Punk from Centerport, NY smashing the quiet of suburbia with an all out assault! Side one features the full scale thrash attack of their original “ID” demotape (1983), a true unsung classic of early 80’s NY HC, quoting the legendary FLEX! North America book: “An unreleased Hardcore treasure – fast, powerful and super angry, in the vein of the Boston/XClaim/Midwest bands“. On the flipside the darker yet intense & catchy “Pilgrim state” 12″ (1985) – again from FLEX! : “Fast, powerful and slightly metallic Hardcore with some interesting harmonies and rhythms; the slower songs show some psychotic Black Flag influences. Original and intelligent music, one of those Hardcore records that fell through the cracks back then and have aged very well“. Including 16 page booklet complete with photos, flyers, lyrics and artwork from the original releases, as well as unreleased material. Watch the trailer HERE

2nd chapter in F.O.A.D.‘s mission to reissue the entire Unsound Music catalog on vinyl (Insanity Defense being the first). Another hidden gem of fast and furious Long Island, NY Hardcore with a sound in the vein of the early Touch & Go bands. “What happens when you take a Brit punk and an American punk, put them together in a studio… what do you get? A row? No! You get FATAL VISION” (Jeff Earing). This mysterious short-lived band, created by Ric Clarke and Jeff Earing (Insanity Defense, Satans Cheerleaders, etc) made a cassette of full throttle raging hardcore that mixes elements of punk from both sides of the pond. 12 songs of mosh pit madness, led by singer Pete Coffey. This recording from 1983 was never released in its entirety… until now! Sourced from the band’s mastertape and specially mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio. Including insert with scans of the original cassette, lyrics and liner notes. Watch the trailer HERE
