Album Review: TRC - Nation

Given that TRC this year celebrated their tenth anniversary of life as a band, it seems a little odd to think that new album ‘Nation’ is only their second full-length effort so far. 2011’s ‘Bright Lights’ is generally considered the debut release of the band in their current form, and if album number one was the band’s gateway to the frontline of UK hardcore, then September’s follow-up is the band justifying their place amongst the elite.

There isn’t much waiting around for TRC to get all cylinders firing, and just five seconds into opening track ‘Finger Fuck You’ is the band’s first of many bursts of intensity across one of 2013’s most incendiary records. In essence, it’s the same old TRC from the start doing exactly what they do best, deliciously self-aware hardcore that you can’t just shrug off without a good flail-along. The band attack from both ends of their musical spectrum early on, with one of the album’s most pumped up sections giving way to TRC at their most withdrawn, pulled harshly back from the throat-wrenching frenzy and transformed into something almost docile in comparison. It’s an emotional sidebar to a blistering opener, which gives way into the restored fury of ’10,000 Hours’. A little early to be calling on a second wind, perhaps, but it’s one that carries the band through ‘Motivator’ and into their definitive single so far, ‘#TeamUK’. Describing the explosion of national pride all prettied up with accompanying hashtag as the band’s flagship effort to date might not be the most well-received statement in the world, but there’s no denying what song has garnered the biggest reception from the band’s existing repertoire. Instrumentally massive, perhaps a little lyrically cheesy, perhaps even out of date with its selection of Bullet for my Valentine as the go-to band to shower praise on. It remains TRC to the core however; outspoken, piledriving hardcore that it’s so hard to get enough of. And as it continues, ‘Nation’ continues to cough up beast of a track after beast of a track showing no sign of stopping any time soon.

New TRC Video (‘10,000 Hours’)

TRC have premiered their new video for '10,000 Hours' and can be viewed by clicking read more.

Chris Robson (vocals) commented on the video:

"It was great to work with Daniel Broadley again, after the fantastic job he did on ‘We Bring War’. The tune is about the rule of success being 10,000 hours of applied effort, and was inspired by Malcolm Gladwell’s book, ‘Outliers’. No matter what the distraction, we’ve kept pushing on with TRC. 10,000 hours equates to approx. 10 years, which is quite funny because TRC released our first demo 10 years ago. What’s even funnier, was the fact we recorded the band performance scene in the studio where we recorded that very first demo. Everything came full circle. It’s my favourite track off ‘Nation’."

TRC's new album, 'Nation' is available now on Siege Of Amida Records/Century Media.
