California's pioneers CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER team up with FOAD Records for an incredible vinyl treasure finally giving the right treatment to their legendary "Life in grave" Demotape 1985 and to an accurate selection of ultra-rare/unreleased recordings ranging from their 3 piece line-up era (1985) to the "Convicted"/"Money talks" days. This release has been in the works for months until we found the top sounding masters in existence and restored them for the best possible audiophile result when pressed on vinyl. Side A includes the band's Demotape "Life in grave" adding 2 rehearsal tracks from the same period, one is a speeded up HELLHAMMER cover and one is a super-raw version of VENOM's "Welcome to hell". Side B is all focused on the "Convicted"/"Money talks" 4 piece line-up and includes various live recordings and a good sounding rehearsal 1986. All songs here are performed even faster than how they were played on their classic albums. This is how Goodbadmusic.com introduced "Life in grave": "1985 was a good year for music ? bands like SLAUGHTER, NYC MAYHEM, VOOR, WEHRMACHT, HIRAX, DEATH, REPULSION and CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER amazed me and they still blow me away today! Especially this one here with its youthful urgency, its unpolished power and enthusiasm. And stilistically, this was very refreshing. Could you say whether this is more metal or more HC? Does it matter to you?" Being this one of the most important FOAD releases to date, we also dedicated the right passion to the packaging: a stunning gatefold sleeve and most of all a 36 PAGE zine/booklet stuffed with rare photos, interviews, zine excerpts and gig flyers. If you're into any kind of fast music be it Thrash, Hardcore, Grind or Power Violence, you are MAD if you miss this!!!!

Vespertina ‎– Glossolalia - LP

One-sided silkscreen vinyl.

The ancient and timeless atmosphere of this delicate album is perfectly reflected even on the artwork of this one sided record. There's magic in these old pictures, where Vespertina as a witch seems to be hiding a secret or summoning a spirit, the creature printed on the vinyl.

Let it possess you and your stereo!

Majesty – Bestial Vomit - CD

Pre-NAUSEA and TERRORIZER members delivering dark, aggressive LA Death Metal in 1987! Their cult Demotape "Bestial Vomit" was hunted as a rare treasure among collectors and tape trading maniacs. Here you finally get it mastered from a copy coming directly from the band's archives, with the addition of another session recorded few months later + a jam session featuring Majesty and Terrorizer together playing a Napalm Death cover + 1 extra track. This is the first official MAJESTY discography on CD and by far the best sounding and most complete one.

12 songs of gloomy, menacing Death Metal with the unique vocal approach of the Grindcore master Oscar Garcia.

Coffins - Craving to Eternal Slumber - Blue LP

Blue vinyl, 180 gram, 300 copies limited with two vinyl only extra tracks.

Coffins have been able to put together one of the most truly terrifying and strangely tantalizing death metal records of the year.

Their unique brand of utterly crushing Japanese death metal has alwyas left fans scraping their jaws off the floor, but this 6 track release goes above and beyond, Craving To Eternal Slumber proves that Coffins have the potential to go down in history as the decades dominant death metal demons.

Cannibal Corpse - Red Before Black - LP Blue

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog.

The Atrocity Exhibit ‎– Extinction Solution - CD

The masters of grind n' roll return with a new masterpiece, bristling with blasts, riffs and incomprehensible screaming. 'Extinction Solution' is a masterclass in hook-laden, 'fun' grind, but do not mistake the term here to mean 'not filled with blast beats and ear shattering vocals'.

Clocking in at around 22 minutes long the Northampton three piece waste no time with overlong intro/outro sections or frilly atmosphere, THE ATROCITY EXHIBIT go straight for the jugular, with old school Napalm Death-esque slippery guitar riffs snuggled up neatly against rock and roll rhythms that would give Lemmy cause to grin ear to ear.

This is a properly excellent extreme music release that will please all smelly crust and grind fans, a strong competitor for grind album of the year!!

Looking For An Answer - Dios Carne LP

Solid black vinyl version, limited to 400, housed in a thick gatefold jacket. 


Spanish Grindcore veterans LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER return with their first full length in 6 years. "DIOS CARNE? is a visceral sonic descent into the deepest layers of carnism and human depravity. Ethically aware, yet fucking pissed and ready to devour the opposition, LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER have unleashed their most focused aggression of anti-harmonic orchestrations to date. Straight to the throat grindcore with a heavy old school death metal influence, that promises to unrelentingly punish the listener.

Recommended to fans of REPULSION, early NAPALM DEATH, UNSEEN TERROR, AUTOPSY, BOLT THROWER.
