T.C.F. – “Where Madness Reigns” September 23, 2012 http://battlehelm.com/?cat=4 REVIEWS T.C.F. – “Where Madness Reigns” (Malevolence Records) It’s been a while since I’ve heard a crossover album this good – especially one that harks back to the good old days of the 80s when bands like SOD, DRI, Carnivore and Nuclear Assault reigned! T.C.F. actually hail from Holland but true Dutchies they are, do their tribute in fine style with just the right blend of hardcore and metal to knuckle you on songs like ‘An Eye For An Eye’, ‘We Will Survive’ and ‘Slave Of The Suit’. Aggro vocals are shouted out amid speedy thrashcore riffs, wild soloing and frenetic staccato drumming, all of which remain true to the original style, and what’s more is that it’s all done by just three guys (a metalhead, punk and thrasher no less lol) and so well an’ all. Complete with disco samples and a Mugabe speech, “Where Madness Reigns” is the best contemporary tribute to old school crossover currently whether you wanna fight, fuck or just go plain mental to it!
Septic Christ – “Guilty As We Were Born” September 23, 2012 http://battlehelm.com/?cat=4 REVIEWS Septic Christ – “Guilty As We Were Born” (Malevolence Records) Septic Christ are a buncha jolly Germans who play old school thrash when it was fun to do so i.e. before bands began taking themselves and their Bermuda shorts too seriously lol. Still, might as these guys may enjoy a beer or ten, don’t discount their music cos they certainly play tight and on ten! Relentless frash riffola, wang bar excess, stampeding drums and gruffola vox are guaranteed to bring on the mosh pit madness with songs like ‘Bomb Monte Carlo’, ‘Be A Man’ and ‘Screwed And Ill’. What’s even better is that this isn’t a retro trip but Septic Christ have done their homework and read the thrash bible diligently – as such their beats and rhythms, whilst drawing inspiration from decades gone by, are still very much tuned for today’s headbanger. Along with a classic 80s thrash album cover, Septic Christ remind me a lot of Municipal Waste, M.O.D, Anthrax or even early thrash bands like Re-Animator or Deathrow which is no bad thing when you wanna get beered up, tune in and let yer brain drop out!
← Cobolt 60 – The Grim Defiance T.C.F. – Where Madness Reigns SEP 24 Posted by Terrible Certainty Zine
Four minutes—exactly two songs—into Where Madness Reigns you’ll be triple checking the back cover of your cd just to make sure that you’ve not overlooked the fact that it is indeed a re-issue of some dusty old relic from the cassette tape days. Fact is, you just don’t hear convincing, relevant crossover these days. Just how old school is Holland’s T.F.C.? They’ve got Ronald Reagan samples on their record. That’s a fixation.
This is full-blooded crossover thrash metal in the classic spirit of Nuclear Assault, S.O.D., D.R.I.,D.B.C. and a bunch of other initials. It’s part age-old railing against government and corporations, part fist pumping moshpit madness. And that shit is evergreen. T.C.F. doesn’t play the beer-bong party thrash that was in vogue for a moment, but their bright tones and redlined tempos are still guaranteed to put a big, sheepish grin on your mug. These guys are clearly worshipping at the altar of the old guard, but not with a wink and a nod—T.C.F. comes off as legitimate devotees. Lifers. And Where Madness Reigns is damn convincing.

Canadian Press Release / Info :
From the biggest Dutch print magazine AARDSCHOK (Earthquake) one of the oldest and most prestigious metal magz in Europe.
This months' surprise comes from our own soil! Hailing from Katwijk to be exact. This three piece delivers good old crossover/thrashcore that takes me back to the golden days of DRI, Nuclear Assault and Attitude Adjustment with a slight hint of Anthrax. Tight playing, good production and overall fluent, instantly recognizable songs form the ingredients of the thirteen tracks on this disc. It's easy to say you can hear these guys having fun playing and personally I find these guys to be better and more authentic than for instance Municipal Waste just to name an example. The pace is generally high, but mosh parts and some melodylines aren't forgotten. A good example is the bluesy guitar lead in the center part of "An Eye For An Eye" which is instantly followed by the relentless "Justified Violence". Absolutely Phat disc!
