T.C.F. - Where Madness Reigns
T.C.F- also known as Thrash Core Fanatics- embody the music they worship. On their debut the music is as catchy and furious as one can get, following the path of groups like Slayer, Exodus, and even Kreator with a bit more of a Rock n' Roll touch to the music. Each track is pretty much rooted in basic Thrash- fast, churning tracks that either are performed in bursts such as "I Like Ike" or with lengthy solos such as on "An Eye For An Eye." One can definitely hear the Slayer influence in the dark tones of "Mass Hysteria" and "Punch In The Face" definitely churns of Exodus. To add more original moments, T.C.F. also tosses in some recorded samples at their opening tracks such on "I Like Ike" or "Duck And Cover." Sometimes these moments seem a bit silly, but they help break up the monotony of most of the tracks because without them the album would feel like just one giant run-through without too much variation. True, the music here isn't the most varied, but most old school Thrash fans will find that T.C.F. live up to their name well by making the music as hard as possible while paying tribute to the heroes of the genre who made it a reality. It's not a modern marvel, but will appeal to the excitement of those who really like a good riff or two.
