"WHERE MADNESS REIGNS"
PRC MUSIC / MALEVOLENCE RECORDS
T.C.F. was a great delight to find in my review pile. This is my first time experiencing these
guys and I loved every minute of it. T.C.F., which stands for THRASH CORE FANATICS
hail from The Netherlands and play a killer form of Crossover music. These guys take me
straight back to when I was first starting to get heavily into music and very serious about it.
Their music is straight out of the mid 80's when Thrash Metal and Hardcore were starting to
git over their different separation boundaries and started to merge. Both Metal and Hardcore
were shunned by just about everyone who wasn't into the two genres and started to realize
they had a lot in common. T.C.F. could have been one of the bigger bands if they had come
out during that time. Their music has that fast paced crusty crunchiness that was found in
early Thrash Metal mixed with the hard edged aggressiveness of Hardcore music. The music
is fast paced tempo with a bit of a dirty groove that runs through it. The vocals are done in
that mid ranged angry Crossover style. These guys are definitely one of my favorite new
bands that I have recently heard. It makes me really miss those good old days of listening to
aggressive music to get all the shit from your miserable day out and feeling good afterwards.
Their song "Slave To The Suit" reminded me so much of D.R.I.'s "Suit & Tie Guy" & "An
Eye For An Eye" was like listening to just about any M.O.D. or S.O.D. song. If you were
to combine the great bands D.R.I., C.O.C., S.O.D., MO.D., THE SPUD MONSTERS,
CRUMBSUCKERS & early NUCLEAR ASSAULT & early SUICIDAL TENDENCIES
you would get this amazing band. Thanx for the great tunes guys and a great trip to the past
of great music times! These guys have made a great tribute to the above mentioned bands by
putting out an amazing album in the same style of the above greats! THRASH CORE
FANATICS is one great band that needs to be heard and supported!!! Thrash til Death!
