"T.C.F." stands for Thrash Core Fanatics - need some more explanations ? I think it's enough for you to figure out what this band is about ! T.C.F. is a metal-hard-core three piece from The Netherlands and the influences are undoublty to be found in bands like Anthrax (time of "Spreading The Disease/Among The Living"), Nuclear Assault, D.R.I., S.O.D, Whiplash, Agnostic Front, Hirax, Verbal Abuse to name a few... so if you're looking for sweet & delicate melody, please close this page ;-)
"Speed Or Bleed" is the second band's release and is made of 5 songs for a playing time that is not longer than 12 minutes ! Right in the old-hardcore tradition ! Musically, this is fast, raw & aggressive but with a positive attitude & energy that is constantly kicking your ass - and you can really feel the spirit of the bands previously named as major influences ! Most of the tempos are fast or even faster, but from time to time, slower breaks appear here & there, like "mosh" parts that will really give you the will to jump everywhere in your room ! Vocals are very rude and remind me of Billy Milano on "Speak English Or Die" album... The musical content is really coherent, songs are well-balanced (between hard-core elements for the overall energy and speed/thrash ones for some very cool guitar solos) and well structured. I'm not sure I can say T.C.F. are renewing the style but I doubt this is their aim but they definitely perpetuate the old-school hard-core/metal style with class & maturity and this will for sure please all Thrash-Core Fanatics around !

T.C.F. - Speed Or Bleed

Jaar van release: 2009
Label: Eigen beheer

T.C.F. - Speed Or BleedMet slechts tien minuten en zesentwintig seconden is Speed Or Bleed het kortste cd’tje dat ik tot nu toe heb mogen reviewen. Voor een EP is het niet eens zo heel kort, maar ergens is het wel grappig dat met deze de langste promosheet meegestuurd is. T.C.F., oftewel Thrash Core Fanatics, geeft direct al aan waar we mee te maken hebben, namelijk een mix van thrash metal en hardcore.

Als belangrijkste invloeden noemt de band zelf The Cro-Mags, D.R.I. en Agnostic Front, en ik zal de laatste zijn die dat ontkent. Daarnaast vermoed ik dat T.C.F. een zekere fascinatie heeft voor Sodom. Het geluid (zeker halverwege Scumbags) heeft veel overeenkomsten met albums als Persecution Mania en Agent Orange. Hans laat horen een zeer capabele zanger te zijn, maar komt qua geluid meer overeen met de eerder genoemde bands. Daarnaast heeft hij er goed aan gedaan om de basgitaar ter hand te nemen en het soleerwerk aan Nick over te laten. Die kan zich rustig meten met de betere Bay Areagitaristen. Deze vijf songs herbergen veel klasse. Zoals gezegd is dit EP’tje erg kort, maar kwalitatief is het erg goed. Om T.C.F. nou te promoveren naar de Nederlandse thrashelite gaat me wat ver. Dat kan ik pas beoordelen na een full length cd. Volgen dus, deze band.

1. Core ‘88
2. Dead On Arrival
3. Scumbags
4. Same Shit
5. See Nothing, Hear Nothing

Band: T.C.F.
Release: Speed or Bleed EP
Label: Malevolence Records
Location: Katwijk, Holland
Genre: Thrash/Crossover
Release Date: 8th November 2009
Reviewer: Luke Hayhurst
Rating: 7 out of 10

Dutch thrashers T.C.F. may have called it a day but that’s no reason not to check them out. Released in 2009, the Speed or Bleed EP was the bands second release and kicks off with Core 88, a fast speed slice of old school thrash with anthem like choruses, aggressive vocals and maniacally speedy riffs. Frenetic drumming and bass work completes the effect and soon enough Dead on Arrival is slamming out of your stereo as this ten minute long release flies by in whirlwind of alcohol fueled thrash madness. There is no let up in the intensity or pace during Scumbags but then this is the Speed or Bleed EP so what do you expect? If you can believe it Same Shit is even faster and even finds time for a little drum solo and a bass solo between the chants of “Same old shit, Same old shit” and the multitude of guitar solo wankery that adorns every decent thrash release. See nothing, Hear Nothing ends things in a similar style to the rest of the EP and as I always say when listening to T.C.F and their catchy grooves, its a shame they are not still going!

Band: Kaos | T.C.F | Septic Christ | Absentia
Release: Malevolence Records Presents 2012 European Tour Sampler
Label: Malevolence Records
Location: International
Genre: Thrash
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!

Thrash Core Fanatics - Speed Or Bleed Label : Eigen beheer | Archiveer onder speed / thrash metal Release type: Demo Koen : 'Speed Or Bleed' is T.C.F.'s (kort voor Thrash Core Fanatics) vijf nummers tellende demo die gezien kan worden als een eerbetoon aan de crossover bands die in de jaren tachtig van de vorige eeuw hun opwachting maakten. Denk hierbij aan Nuclear Assault, S.O.D., M.O.D., Excel, Gang Green en D.R.I. om er maar even een paar te noemen. Ik heb al maanden naar deze demo uitgekeken en deze heeft me niet teleurgesteld. Ik voel me twintig jaar jonger met deze kick ass muziek. Ik verwacht dan ook dat de band op korte termijn een flinke fanschare op kan bouwen. Mosh it up en steun dit trio. Old school is terug en luister en koop deze tien minuten durende wervelwind!! 80 / 100 toelichting scores Deel deze review met je vrienden - See more at: http://www.lordsofmetal.nl/nl/reviews/view/id/16410#sthash.hZEkq6YD.dpuf
