Destructive Metal UK review of:
Band: Kaos | T.C.F | Septic Christ | Absentia
Release: Malevolence Records Presents 2012 European Tour Sampler
Label: Malevolence Records
Release Date: 2012
Reviewer: Luke Hayhurst
Rating: 8 out of 10
You may have read my review of Perseverance, last years Malevolence Records Euro tour compilation. Well this one is from 2012 and features the four bands listed above. Kaos open things with the swift acting thrash attack that is Internal Bleeding from their Validated in Blood EP, a savage opening complete with rampant riffs, frenetic drumming and the attitude soaked vocals of a man whose raw style hints at a band who lay it all on the line! Absentia and their track If Only I follow with their more symphonically fused melodic style of hard riffs meets ambient undertone! fast paced and nicely flowing, Absentia add something different to this thrash fest of a compilation! Yearning for Salvation is the opening offering of thrashers Septic Christ and they don’t just fly in half cocked. Soaring guitar solos, bass heavy tones and the slow, anticipation build up of a band who know how to thrash but also know how to entertain. besides once they unleash, boy do they unleash! Completing this half of proceedings is another thrash titan T.C.F. and their An Eye for an Eye track from Where Madness reigns which sees the band come into things with brute force and short stab of old school thrash dominance!
On the downhill slope now and Kaos return with the savage Let God Sort The Out, one of their most aggressive anthem like tracks from arguably their best release overall, The Pits of Existence! Absentia, a band I feel is out of place but none the less making a powerful showing here finish their participation with another flowing, surging track, A Kiss from Hellaven before Wake Up from Septic Christ delivers another lethal dose of in your face thrash barbarity and T.C.F’s Core 88 end things the only way a good compilation should end, mired in the old school!
Jon Torres - Ulysses Siren
As many of you know, Jon Torres passed away on the morning of September 3rd 2013. This unexpected loss is a shock to all of us. The void that is left by his passing is beyond words. He was a beloved friend, family member and band mate. Although this loss is felt by all of us the burden left behind for his family is immeasurable. Jon was the main source of income for his family and is survived by his wife Tambre and daughter Cassie. I know that many of those closest to him have expressed their desire to help. Your love and moral support have been a pillar of strength for all of us but if you could find it in your hearts to donate to this fund to help with upcoming expenses this is the most impact you could possibly have in helping us move forward from this tragedy. Any amount you see fit will be greatly appreciated. All proceeds will go directly to his surviving family. If you wish to send money directly to the home you can sent checks to the following address. Thank you for the outpouring of support and may you and your family be blessed.

Hey Thrashers out there. We haven’t any good news for you. It was a very difficult decision for all of us, but we have decided that we bring our time as a band to an end.
There’s no right or wrong moment to make this decision, but things gonna change.
So we would like to thank all bands, fans, bookers, magazines, webzines and radio-stations that have spread our word and our music and supported us from the beginning. We would like to especially emphasize the collaboration with Nathan McLeod, our Label Manager, to whom we send all our gratitude for the immense work that is made since we signed his Label.
YOU are a part of us! Thank you!
Im already working with PR company and looking for more funding.
