• Canadian Speed/Thrash at its finest! Long time in the works, this retrospective of early AGGRESSION recordings (1984-1986) collects all their demos and promo-tapes released before their debut album “The full treatment“, and adds a bonus CD with a complete, good sounding live set recorded in Quebec, 2/2/1986. Quoting the liner notes by Denis ‘Sasquatch’ included in this anthology: “Five metalheads playing their hearts out without any musical boundaries or restrictions. We were able to do whatever we wanted. And not only musically, we had no rules with an absolute disrespect for laws and society which got us in trouble quite a few times.” Right there in those magical years when bands like Voivod, Razor, Sacrifice, Piledriver were starting to pave the way and Canada was hosting a titanic Metal event such as the World War III Festival, AGGRESSION were spawning their early Thrashing outrages proving to be equally intense and powerful as the previously mentioned pioneers. And to keep up the F.O.A.D. tradition of maniacal attention for detail, this release comes with a gatefold jacket and a massive 36 page fanzine styled booklet with a huge selection of AGGRESSION photos (some exclusive, never seen before ones), flyers, early interviews and memorabilia of all sorts. Red vinyl limited to 100 copies. (F.O.A.D. Records)

    Solid black vinyl version limited to 300 copies - LP+CD. Torino, Northern Italy, is with no trace of doubt one of the areas that gave birth to some of the most important Italian Hardcore bands of all eras… NEGAZIONE, DECLINO, CONTR-AZIONE, 5# BRACCIO, ROUGH just to mention a few. And the great thing about this city is that all this did not only last in the ’80s but had a solid continuation in the decades to follow. Bands like ARTURO, CRUNCH, FRAMMENTI, BELLI-COSI, C.O.V. took the legacy of the giants that came before and ruled the ’90s reinventing Hardcore with creativity, passion and a flash of genius in song-writing. ARTURO were certainly the fastest and those that have been more pristine in sticking to the total Hardcore formula, especially in their early years with Alfo on vocals. So this anthology is all focused on that time, the early years of one of the most furious Italian Hardcore bands of the Nineties… fast, top adrenalinic Hardcore that gives no time to breathe from start to finish! It includes their debut CD “Ar-cor” (1995), the two Ep’s “Isterico” (1997) and “Topo volante” (1998) plus a bonus CD with the impossible to find first demo and an unreleased soundboard live at El Paso (Torino), 1996 opening for CRIPPLE BASTARDS (actually at that time ARTURO shared their drummer and bass-player with CB!). 63 songs of manic fast TORINO HC!!! Double insert with lyrics, original artworks and photos. (F.O.A.D. Records)
  • Sweden’s Hardcore pioneers blast back after 23 years! “Död åt kapitalismen” is their first recording since 1994 and as expected it takes no prisoners… 10 songs of raw and brutal HC combing the traditional Scandinavian approach with a solid d-beat structure. It takes all the best features of their previous works to push them to a new devastating stage… speed, anger, vitriolic vocals and a solid production makes this a total scandicore headsmasher for fans of Anti Cimex, Crude SS, Totallitär, Avskum and so on. Comes in a gatefold sleeve. (F.O.A.D. Records)  
  • Another incredible Italian Hardcore gem from the “furious years” not to be missed… Founded in fall 1984 on the ashes of WRONG BOYS (that have also been reissued on F.O.A.D. recently), BLAXFEMA continued along the same path delivering fast, angry and political Hardcore. This complete discography includes their classic “Menes” Demotape 1985 straight from the reels and a never-heard-before soundboard live/rehearsal that shows them at the top of their game!! 24 TRACKS of sincere, crucial Hardcore recommended if you also like INFEZIONE, DECLINO, IMPACT and early European thrashing HC in general. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, comes with a full colored photo insert and a fanzine styled booklet with liner notes, rare flyers, scans of the original tapes, Virus related press pages, extra artworks and a lot more!!

    Aside/Bside red and black splatter vinyl with bonus flexi disc (red) limited to 250 copies. The most Hardcore-infused BORIS album to date, their 26th full length recorded in self-isolation due to the pandemic. This is how BORIS themselves describe the mood behind this album: “A mirror that gathers and reflects people’s negative energy at a different angle, one that is positive. That is the power and potential of the dark, extreme, and brutal noise music that we have experienced up to this point“. Previously released in Japan only by Blood Sucker Records on CD and LP (both versions already sold out and getting pricey on Discogs or elsewhere), this exclusive F.O.A.D. edition is the first internationally distributed and it adds a bonus flexi disc with an unreleased version of the band’s cover of “Fundamental Error” by GUDON, featuring Guy (ORIGIN OF M, ex-GUDON) on bass!! To sum it all up: “NO” balances a respect for Japanese hardcore tradition with uncompromising idiosyncrasy, resulting in one of the most brazen and punishing Boris albums to date. The whole album keeps a nervous pace where their familiar sludgy doom atmospheres – that they always deliver with unmatched apocalyptic heaviness – give way to roaring Hardcore bursts in a perfectly flowing crescendo.

  • Limited edition of 300 copies on transparent blue vinyl with side-B silkscreened. Official reissue on vinyl of BRAINSTORM‘s debut Demotape “Only the dead see the end of the war” (1989). Among the multitude of cult demos worshipped by the most dogged tape-traders back in the day, this little treasure from former Yugoslavia has always been a highlight here between the FOAD’s ranks. Their style was perfectly settled in the growing Grind/Britcore extremity that was exploding those years thanks to early releases of labels like Earache, Peaceville and Manic Ears. BRAINSTORM was totally devoted to that formula, delivering a manic raw barrage of Grinding HC with a massive dose of riff-oriented Thrashcore catchiness. It reminds of DOOM, UNSEEN TERROR, DEVIATED INSTINCT, HERESY, “Scum”-era NAPALM DEATH and other pioneers of that scene. This link was consolidated by the fact that the singer of the band lived in the UK for a long period those years, attending that scene and bands like DOOM. (FOAD Records)
  • NOISECORE FROM 1984!!!!!!! The longly awaited full discography by these pioneering Noisecore Punks from Brazil, among the earliest and most annihilating sonic terrorists of the ’80s! These maniacs were responsible for a crazily fast Chaos-Thrash long before the British explosion of Grindcore or the arrival of bands like AxCx, Sore Throat and the likes, and they were equally extreme and out of control… the blasting tornado on their split with OLHO SECO from 1985 was way ahead of their time in terms of outrageous speed and ear-splitting distortion. This exhaustive discography LP includes the following: Split LP with OLHO SECO (both versions. 1985), INFRATORES (pre-BRIGADA DO ÓDIO! 1984), s/t EP (2002) and “Diáspora” EP (2006, for the first time on vinyl!). 50 TRACKS!!

  • Special CD re-issue housed in an ultra deluxe hard cover digibook including 20 page booklet with lyrics and photos! The packaging of this edition is totally stunning and makes justice to such a classic album. The 2nd full length by Italy's Metal masters BULLDOZER! Originally released in 1986, here it finally comes in a new edition remastered directly from the studio reels provided by the band and re-packaged with unreleased photos and lyrics (scans of the original typed drafts). "Final separation" is a devastating follow-up to their cult debut "The day of wrath" and adds a strong Speed/Thrash Metal vibe to their well-tested Black Metal meets dirty R'n'R tinged aggrression! All in all, this is another good confirm of the goodness of the Bulldozer?s sound back in the 80s and it?s good to recommend it to the old school fans of this lethal black/speed combination. For all its length, the nastiness of the speed metal and the brutal influences of bands like Venom and Mot?rhead collide to create another high impact effort, in pure 80s style!! RIDE HARD... DIE FAST!! (F.O.A.D. Records)

Originally released in 2000, CB‘s 2nd full length is an incredible outburst of hyperfast hate-fueled Grind rooted in the most furious and violent 80’s Italian Hardcore. 16 songs of manic speed scream-out-lungs hatred at its most nihilistic form, the band’s absolute manifesto.

  • 1984.. the band that played faster than anyone else in the world, with proto-grindcore blast beats running way faster than SIEGE, REPULSION or early D.R.I... They only left a devastating 7″ called “Stop the world” and few tracks on the “NJ got it?” Compilation LP and were mentioned among the early Agathocles influences or by few maniacs in the tape-trading circles searching for the craziest and most radical sonic atrocities. We’re talking of the legendary C Y A N A M I D !!! Quoting Erich Keller (Fear Of God / Off The Disk): “CYANAMID were probably one of the most influential bands of the 80s – but nobody knows it. When I still was heavily into that “can’t get enuff of noise” mood, CYANAMID blew me away and definitely wanted me to start my own thing. The kids sometimes forget that there were basically two paths leading to that “Grindcore” thing – one from the metal side and this was the other one. Everything about their “Stop the world” 7″ is the way it should be – the sound smokes, the songs are either outbursts of chaos and energy or then they come crawlin’ in a FLIPPERish way. ” This review nails it perfectly, because alternated to the short, manic fast tracks you get some downtuned, slower (yes.. Flipper-ish!) and completely unpredictable tunes increasing the sense of violence and insanity that this amazing band was able to create. Many PowerViolence acts of the early ’90s did this not ever knowing that one decade earlier there was someone adopting the same formula in such a brutal way. This F.O.A.D. anthology finally makes justice to these pioneering heroes, it collects their complete discography 1983-2014 mastered from reels and the best sounding sources in existence.. 51 songs! It has it all: “Stop the world” 7″, “New Jersey’s got it?” comp. trax, extra Transaudio studios out takes 1984, “I love NJ” tape and bonus live CD 1983-2014!! Full colored booklet with rare photos, flyers, original artworks, zine excerpts, liner notes and mysteries solved about their “I love NJ” demotape. Black vinyl limited to 300 copies. (F.O.A.D.

  • “Before there was some so called “extreme Metal” on this Earth, there were the radical sounds of bands like POISON, GENOCIDE, DEATH, ARCHENEMY and fuckin’ DECAPITATION!!!!! These guys were around way before everybody else. MAJOR CRUSHING DEATH finally unleashed on vinyl!!!!” (Laurent Ramadier, Snakepit Mag, D.O.D.). This introduction sums up very well the contents of this incredible slab of sickness from 1985! DECAPITATION were insanely fast and brutal for the time they were around… here you get their complete discography, consisting of the cult “Killing the innocents” Demo 1985 / Rehearsal 1985 / complete live at Canoga Park, CA, 1985 ending with a CONFUSE cover! Horror tinged US Death / Speedcore, a pioneering mix of obscure Death Metal and raw Thrashcore violence at blasting speed. If you like stuff like CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “Life in grave” demo, FCDN TORMENTOR “Demonic” demo, the early demos by DEATH and so on, DECAPITATION is exactly that kind of stuff! Quoting a review of that era: “The vocals are so sick and violating they can cause severe brain damage… I should know, I’m setting an appointment to see a Neurologist!“. Comes with a 12 page booklet including lyrics, ‘zine excerpts, rare artworks, an extensive interview by Laurent Ramadier and an introduction by King Fowley (DECEASED). Black vinyl limited to 200.

    The most exhaustive and complete DECLINO discography release ever made! Formed in 1982 in Torino (also hometown of Negazione, Kollettivo, Blue Vomit, Nerorgasmo and many more), DECLINO stands as one of the most important names in the legendary first wave of Italian Hardcore, or call it “the furious years” or specifically for Torino, the “wild bunch”. They were on the maps in the early MRR reports about Italy’s Punk/HC scene and also appeared in the fundamental “P.E.A.C.E.” 2xLP compilation on R Radical Records! Their style was a highly energetic clash of speed, rage and creative song-writing. The band featured members that also played in cult acts such as Negazione, Indigesti, 5° Braccio etc… and they were definitely among the first in their area to develop a mature style that was leaning more towards the intensity of total Hardcore than on Punk’s rawness. This anthology includes all their existing studio recordings, consisting of: the debut 7″ (1983), “Mucchio selvaggio” split tape/LP with Negazione (1984), 3 unreleased tracks (1984), “Eresia” 12″ (1985) and a complete soundboard live recording (Denmark, 1985) never released before in its entirety… for a total of 39 songs!
    Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a 11″x11″ booklet glued on the inner panel, collecting a huge selection of photos, flyers, artworks and all the lyrics. And included in this first pressing you’ll also find a poster with the discarded art for “Eresia” 12″ that has never been published to date!! Compared to the previous collective works, “Terra bruciata” is the definitive and most complete one, each session / recording included is totally complete! If you’re a maniac of rapid, straightforward Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC in general, this is an absolute must!

  • FOAD's legacy with Swedish Hardcore/Punk pioneering bands goes on! After unearthing the early recordings of the speed Hardcore maniacs ASOCIAL, it's time for another classic act from the same "family".. DISTRUST! Brief history: Distrust came together in the summer of 1983 when the 2 brothers Kenneth & Tommy (from B.T.D.) joined Håkan & Peter L (before in Why War?). Håkan had just started singing in Asocial (later on drums) and Tompa (Asocial) lived next door to Kenneth and Tommy so it was natural those two bands did a lot of things together. After that Distrust dissolved in the end of -84 or early -85 Kenneth joining Asocial on bass (later on guitar). This double LP discography includes all their existing recordings compiled by Håkan straight from the master tapes for the best sounding result: "A dream of peace" Demo 1983, "Vi Rustar Dom Dor" Demo 1984, the split live tape with Asocial, all tracks from "No War No More 1 & 2", "Really Fast Vol.II" plus extra rehearsal and live tracks, for a total of 61 songs of uncompromised Swedish Punk/Hardcore mangel!!

A work of love and dedication, the result of an incredible journey from the F.O.A.D. headquarters to a remote country-town in the middle of the Hokkaidō island, northern Japan, to meet the band members and put together the most exhaustive collection of all their available recordings, spanning from 1985 to 1987. Here you get the ultra-complete discography of HUMAN GAS, including a lot of unreleased material… Musically, this is some of the rawest and most violent Hardcore ever spawned from the darkest lairs of the ’80s Japanese underground. Tracks from the split 7″ with Stali Nism (1985), “Noice and Hardcore” 1st Demo (1986), “Explosives” 2nd Demo (1986), tracks from “Street Punk in Obihiro” Omnibus tape (1986), “Lack luster” 3rd Demo + extra studio songs (1987), unreleased studio jam session with members of Human Gas + Stali Nism + Middle Class (1987). Plus there’s an extra CD with a soundboard live take from 1986 that sounds killer, assorted live recordings 1986-1987 and an instrumental version of their cult Demo “Explosives“. And to complete the massacre, you’ll also find a DVD with two complete live sets (their only gig in Sapporo, “Bessie Hall“, 1987 and one in Obihiro’s “Rocking Hall“, 1987) showing these raging maniacs in action. 79 TRACKS!! All this mastered from 1st generation sources provided by the band, transferred and restored with total care and attention to detail at Toxic Basement Studio. Trifold jacket housed in a casewrapped outer boxset, 24 page full colored booklet with loads of rare photos, flyers, memorabilia and some brief liner notes put together talking with the band members. Named after a Kuro song, Human Gas were the most destructive and iconic Northern Japan’s answer to the noisy and violent Noise/Punk scene that was growing in the opposite side of the country with bands like Gai, Confuse and Kuro themselves! Add the fact that their songs were more structured, solid and as the title of this anthology suggests: violent. The Hokkaidō area is definitely one of the most fascinating and mysterious when it comes to early pioneers of the Japanese Hardcore panorama… L.S.D., 畜生, Slang, Tranquillizer, Deef, , F.U.P., Gaizin, Napalm, Noise-Decay and many more were all based there. Human Gas still stands as one of the most respected names for their genuine anger and the highly original and influential musical approach. (F.O.A.D. Records)

Born from the ashes of MAJESTY, they were not a side project of Terrorizer (as many think incorrectly), but a definite band, even surviving the latter’s break up in 1988. Oscar Garcia even used some Nausea songs to complete the posthumous Terrorizer record (‘Corporation Pull-in’, ‘Need to Live’, ‘Condemned System’ and the title track ‘World Downfall’ that was in origin a Majesty song)! On this new CD edition you will find the songs featured on the LP one, so the band’s classic “Psychological conflict” EP (1990), the obscure and under-rated “Tumor” Demo (1992) and the entire split Demo with TERRORIZER (1988) bootlegged on vinyl by Headache Rec in the early 90s, plus six raw yet powerful sounding tunes from three different rehearsal recordings straight from 1987. These bonus tracks are exclusive for this digipack CD repress and will square the circle of the story of a band the helped to define a full genre! This is raw, doomy and corrosive death metal tinged GRIND with whirlwind blast beats and those incredible moshing riffs that became so influential when World Downfall gained its deserved success!
