SKINLESS “Gut pumping hits – the demos” gatefold 2xLP and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANI  split LP+CD …preorders start NOW!!

As you may have noticed, one of our peculiarities here at F.O.A.D. Records is to organize the releases’ schedule in a thematic way, ensuring that each month has its own special feature, so as to be able to range over various genres and countries in a well-reasoned way. In December we had the all Noisecore based month, January was focused on Japanese Hardcore/Thrash… what we have come up with for this month is an entirely different beast: the complete demos collection of an American Death Metal legend vs two obscure pioneering units from the old school Singaporean Black/Death inferno. 

If you think that there’s not much connection between these two, it’s no secret the fact that March was planned with 4 releases but two were removed from production (postponed to a date to be defined) out of all our expectations due to the usual fuck-up caused by a local pressing plant. And those two releases would have been be the ideal connecting link to create the perfect F.O.A.D. month. But after all these are details and small side effects of the gray times we are living in, and what we are about to offer you is still a solid lineup in typical F.O.A.D. style: SKINLESSGut pumping hits” gatefold 2xLP, a complete collection of the early demos and compilation tracks by these NY Death Metal heavyweights and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANIsplit” LP+CD, a nigthmarish descent into the most putrid and malevolent realms of old school Singaporean Death/Black Metal that will totally delight those of you who’ve enjoyed our previous foray through the meanders of Singapore’s ancient obscurities with XASTHUR‘s “Hidden lore” released on vinyl last year. 

So to sum things up, SKINLESSGut pumping hits – the demos” gatefold 2xLP and EURONYMOUS / BEHEADED NASRANI  “split” LP+CD are both available on preorder, as usual we strongly suggest you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard colored vinyl version, they certainly won’t sit in our warehouse for long!

Complete early recordings collection (1994-1997) of New York’s undisputed Death Metal legend! Discover the gut slashing roots of these masters of gore and brutality. A special mention goes to their demotape “Swollen heaps“, often quoted as one of NYC’s most classic and bone crushing demos in the genre, the pinnacle of an era when brutal Death Metal was still totally straight in the face and not inflated by abuse of triggering and utterly artificial productions. Groovy riffs with plenty of chug, crushing breakdowns and technical blasting severity… watch the trailer HERE

Vicious Black/Death assault from Singapore’s circles of hell! EURONYMOUSSurrender unto evil” is the band’s only opus from 1991, a wicked masterpiece of ancient blackened wrath – BEHEADED NASRANI‘s “Demo/promo tape 1991” is another nigthmarish descent into the most putrid and malevolent realms of old school Singaporean Death Metal. Both demos have been mastered from top quality sources provided by the bands, sounding much better than any previous edition around.

If you enjoyed F.O.A.D.‘s reissue of XASTHUR‘s “Hidden lore” that came out not long ago and other South Eastern Asian demons like Abhorer, Profancer and early Impiety, with a sound that undoubtedly also draws to the most barbaric and violent Brazilian classics of Cogumelo‘s golden years, you can’t miss this infernal split! watch the trailer HERE
