Remember bands like Sacred Reich? Exodus? Hirax? S.O.D.? Yeah, me too, and so do the members of Iron Reagan, an East Coast Super Group of sorts, comprised of the singer and guitar player of party monsters Municipal Waste and the rhythm section of Darkest Hour, one of the longer running, better Metal bands out there right now. They've all come together to celebrate all things Thrash, with an album comprised of 20 tracks played in about 20 minutes, with a few songs barely registering double digits in the time department. Me likey. There's some killer stuff on here. It takes a while to get used to hearing Tony Foresta screaming and carrying on about things not related to beer and weed, but once that hurdle is overcome it's all good. Opening track Drop The Gun is a hard hitting, obnoxious, gem of a tune, and sets the mood nicely for the rest of the album, which is fast and furious - full steam ahead. This record is recorded good. The guitars are crunchy and loud, the rhythm section tight as fuck. Eye Piss Tears is a great song on here, same with Slightly Out Of Focus, and Snake Chopper, Paycheck and Eat Shit And Live kick ass as well. Fuck, just check this release out. It's some really good 80's style Punk / Thrash shit that I'm sure you're gonna like.
The record is available from A389 Recordings, which you can go to by clicking here, and it's also available as a digital download on the bands Band Camp page, which you can go to by clicking here.
