Currently dismantling stages alongside the gore-obsessed death metal hooligans in Exhumed, today hardcore thrash mutants, Iron Reagan, snap necks with “Mini Lights,” currently bludgeoning frequencies courtesy of Invisible Oranges.
The punishing little number comes by way of the band’s forthcoming vinyl-only split with Exhumed. A profane union of spirits, the split offers up eight unrepentant tracks that spout more unexpurgated fury than a pack of wild badgers
Elaborates Invisible Oranges, “Iron Reagan rocked some worlds earlier this year with their pissed off whirlwind of a debut full-length, Worse Than Dead. That album, with songs that average around a minute-thirty and nail the punk and hardcore divide with a thrashy attitude, thematically resurrects the spirits of Cold War-era fears to take on today’s politically charged topics like gun control and reproductive rights… [Municipal Waste’s Tony] Foresta’s voice is certainly a defining characteristic in Iron Reagan, but this isn’t MW 2.0. “Mini Lights” is from the band’s forthcoming split with Exhumed, with whom Iron Reagan just kicked off a tour. Surprise: it rips.”
