Arriving through Malevolence Records, today we have T.C.F a Dutch band playing some very well crafted Thrashcore. If you didn’t know the band is from the Netherlands, you would easily mistake them for any band from the late 80’s, early 90’s from the USA. Delivering thirteen tracks of balls to the wall Thrashcore, “Where Madness Reigns” is a pretty solid release for any fan of the genres.
With a very authentic vibe, the band opens with hateful riffs and powerful drums on “Face the Truth”. Keeping the initial vibe rolling, tracks like “Slave to the Suit”, “Mass Hysteria” and “Where Madness Reigns” feature very typical song structures that will have you jumping up and down immediately. It is quite funny to think that this is a fairly young band since they nail 100% the atmosphere needed to pull off this kind of music.
The riffing and tempo changes on tracks like “Survive the Plague” and “An Eye For an Eye” are clear cut examples of brilliant transitions from Thrash Metal sections to more Punk-oriented ones. Our favorite track is the super catchy “Power Corrupts”, a high-octane song that nicely shows the band’s riffing powers. The vocals in the album are quite good and have that old-school vibe to them. They also don’t have any noticeable accent and this is a big plus since there are some Thrash/Crossover bands from France (no names will be mentioned) that have horrible pronunciation and kill the mood of the album.
If you are a fan of Thrashcore, this is one release you don’t want to miss. These Dutchmen manage to capture the original sound perfectly and deliver solid tracks backed with tight drumming and excellent riffs.

http://www.infernalmasquerade.com/?q=reviews/002203-septic-christ-–-infected-existence-2009 Septic Christ – Infected Existence (2009) Posted August 26th, 2012 by Dark EmperorAlbum Reviews Trash Metal 2009 Other Today we have Septic Christ and their killer debut full-length release titled “Infected Existence”. Delivering an eight track dose of Bay Area sounding Thrash Metal, this Germany band manages to capture the essence of real old-school Thrash and brings it into a more modern and clean sounding stage. “Infected Existence” is one of those releases that feature brilliant riffing from beginning to end and every track should be heard at least one million times to be fully digested and enjoyed. The album title track delivers the first dosage of killer riffs, reminding us a bit of old Metalica in the pre-“Black Album” era. For a two and a half minute long track, this is one hell of an opener. The tempo changing “W.D.W.F” mixes interesting ‘slow’ sections with the typical Thrash speed ups. The vocals of Bobby Shortleg are pretty solid, but the solos and riffs of JxNothing take the cake in this release. The bass guitar abuse on “Walk” make this sound very devastating and feature an excellent opening section before all hell breaks loose. “Three Letters Called Hell”, “Stand Up Straight” and “Permitted by God” keep the onslaught of crushing riffs, featuring heaps of memorable moments and quite catchy chorus sections like on “Stand Up Straight”. The aptly titled “Thrashin With Style” is an epic song that delivers in every single level: excellent drumming, aggressive vocals, pounding bass line, and powerful riffing, we even have to go as far as saying that this is the best track in the release due to its versatility and aggressiveness. “Infected Existence” is definitely one of those albums that ALL Thrash Metal fans should own. This German band has managed to keep the old-school vibe alive while being very aggressive and highly dynamic. If you like bands like Testament, Forbidden, etc, Septic Christ is one of those names you should be able to associate with the greats in a few years.

http://www.infernalmasquerade.com/?q=reviews/002174-septic-christ-–-guilty-we-were-born-2012 Septic Christ – Guilty As We Were Born (2012) Posted August 6th, 2012 by Dark EmperorAlbum Reviews Trash Metal 2012 Other Keeping the Thrash Metal flame alive, today we have Germany’s Septic Christ and their latest full-length release titled “Guilty As We Were Born”. Released under Malevolence Records, this album features twelve tracks of very well crafted old-school Thrash Metal, that is a bit slower paced than what we are used to listening to, but it has that great old vibe that brings all the nostalgic memories from the genre’s hay day. Opening with a very deceiving melodic track that caries the album title, things really get started with “Starstruck” and it’s intense riffing. There are a few moments in this track that we had some Metallica “And Justice For All” flash backs from a bit, but the music caries on with a more traditional Thrash edge. The band does a good job in crafting catchy melodies, and the drums are very intricate, but we feel that there is some speed missing to make this track (and most of the rest) more intense. Demolishing the listener’s speakers with tracks like “Be A Man”, “Bomb Monte Carlo”, and “G.D.L.B”, the band crafts very powerful tracks that feature good riffs, solid solos and very well constructed drum patterns. There is still something missing since the tracks feel a bit empty and get a bit dull after track five or so. While we are not saying that the album is bad, it just feels a bit way to outdated for what we have been listening from older Thrash Metal legends in the last few years. Even label mates Kaos packs a lot more punch and aggression on their sound. If you like a very traditional old-school sounding Thrash Metal release, then “Guilty As We Were Born” is a pretty solid album that will satisfy your cravings. If you are looking for something more dynamic and engaging, you might want to checkout the band’s label mates Kaos for more aggressive and appealing music.

Renaissance Through Devastation Album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio, Poland, by Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (Vader, Behemoth, Decapitated). Artwork by Pablo The Elephant. "... Manifest Of Refusal is certainly a hell of a lot better than a large handful of death acts you've seen reviewed on here over the past little while. It's thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish, but will most likely lack the significant personality required to impress many people who aren't already death metal fanatics..." http://www.metalstorm.net The band was formed in 1999 in the following line-up: Jacques - vocals, Demian - bass, Leonid - guitars, keyboards, Kirill - guitars, Vladimir - drums. Debut album “Jerk” was released early 2001 by Russian label Fono. The album laid down the foundation for original Stalwart-style, combining massive thrashcore rhythmic groove with atmospheric fragments and acoustic inserts. In summer 2002 Stalwart started to record the second album. Drum tracks were recorded in Astia Studio, Finland, with Anssi Kippo (Children Of Bodom, To/Die/For, Norther). The work demonstrated the significant progress by virtue of unusual consortium of angry riffs and symphonic keyboards. “Dive To Nowhere” was released October 2003 by MetalAgen/Soyz Music. Some of zines characterized it as “one of the best Russian metal releases 2003”, and the 8,5-minute title track became a trademark of band for a long time. For the next album famous Hertz Studio, Poland was booked with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (Vader, Decapitated, Hate). This album became a debut for new guitar player Antuan. “Abyss Ahead” was released May 2008 on CD-Maximum, showed the more powerful and solid work in comparison with the previous one. Soon after original vocalist and drummer left the band. Nevertheless the newcomers Oleg Sobolevsky (vocals) and Tim Ismag (drums) raised the band to the new scale, importing more drive and energy. New Stalwart sound, much more hot, fast and aggressive, externalized itself on the next CD “Annihilation Begins”, also recorded at Hertz Studio, and released December 2009 by Metalism Records. Currently the band finished its 5th album “Manifest Of Refusal”, recorded with new drummer Alex. The CD is will be released worldwide by Canadian label PRC Music May 22th 2012.
