Melodic Hardcore is one of the breakthrough scenes currently in Metal, and one of the standout acts from this genre is TRUSTcompany (a.k.a. Trust Co.). Their Geffen Records debut, “The Lonely Position Of Neutral,” is as powerful as it is beautiful. TRUSTcompany is a sublime engine of poetic destruction.
Clean, melodic vocals are interlaced with short bursts of shrieking growls. The guitars and rhythms charge forward-fusing melodious elements with blasting aggression. The softer aspects, juxtaposed powerfully, heightens the edgy, jagged feel of TRUSTcompany's emotional sound.
The most noteworthy cuts include “Drop To Zero,” the angst driven “Falling Apart,” the bipolar push of the raging “Downfall,” and “Take It All.” TRUSTcompany makes a solid, intense style of Melodic Hardcore.
Overall, TRUSTcompany is as bludgeoning as beautiful. And there's nothing neutral about that. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. Peace.
