IRON REAGAN


"Worse Than Dead"

By Joe Who?

 
 
Richmond Virgina's Iron Reagan  is a new project that's recently come to fruition. Featuring half of Municipal Waste, (Tony Foresta and Phil "Landphil" Hall) along with ex- Darkest Hour members, (Ryan Parrish and Paul Burnette) the group's modus operandi is to have fun, provide social awarness, and rage.
 
Just like their name suggests, the debut album "Worse Than Dead" takes you back to the eighties when the hardcore punk underground came together to express their views on our government and the conservative icon himself ,Reagan. Capturing that spirit, the albums nineteen songs are short bursts of fast-explosive-crossover-thrash that'll incite mosh pits and cause self induced whiplash.
 
Similarities to Municipal Waste can be heard, but it's the more pissed off political direction versus the "party thrash" that'll seperate the two bands. Frontman Tony Foresta vents his feelings on life struggles with frantic vocals that hit you like a ton of bricks, while Landphil adds some diversity to the audio chaos with his guitar style. Choice cuts like; "Drop The Gun", "Cycle Of Violence", "The Debt Collector", and "Walking Out" all speak for themselves and leave a lasting impression.
 
Sure to please old and new fans alike, "Worse Than Dead" pays homage to the past, embracing a moment in time that was influential then and still is now.
