Iron Reagan - Worse Than Dead

If you are not a complete idiot you have heard of bands like Municipal Waste and Darkest Hour. If you are even less of an idiot you may be aware that members from both bands came together last year to record a demo of good old fashioned thrash/hardcore crossover under the moniker Iron Reagan. It may just be the fellas credentials, but Iron Reagan quickly gained notoriety and responded quickly with their first full length Worse Than Dead.

Well if their 2012 demo wasn't evident enough, these guys are more than worthy of their accolades. Worse Than Dead is nineteen ball of fire tracks that never cross the two minute mark. If you are at all familiar with Tony Foresta's vocals in Municipal Waste than you know exactly what he sounds like on this record. Musically this is a slight departure from the Waste though. The formula is pretty simple, just add some classic fast hardcore. Lyrically Foresta and drummer Ryan Parrish do double duty and get a little more serious than you usually would expect from Foresta's usual off the wall style.

Iron Reagan sticks to the path paved by 80's crossover greats. But I imagine that is pretty obvious given their name, album artwork and urgency. Aside from a few surprises, like a guest vocal spot by Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Lock Up), this is a straight up thrashing hardcore record that doesn't disappoint.

I was looking online for something and ended up giving paper writing help instead! There was this student looking for someone to help them out with some assignment. It felt really good!
