All of you long-haired wastoids presently staring at the fridge, beer bong ready, weed order placed, Cheetos-in-bowl, etc… impatiently waiting for the new Municipal Waste record to drop, you might want to wrap your headbang around the new demo from Iron Reagan. Featuring Waste singer/party enabler Tony Foresta and bassist Phil “LandPhil” Hall, the line-up is rounded out by Paul Burnette and Ryan Parrish, both formerly of Darkest Hour.
As you’d expect/hope, their four-track demo eschews overly-complicated arrangements in favor of hardcore/crossover, let’s-go-thrash-it-up jams in the vein of D.R.I. and so forth. If it wasn’t permanent winter at the Deciblog we’d have drained the pool and got to work on re-working some old skating injuries, but as it is we’ll settle for deskbanging instead. Less beer-orientated than Municipal Waste, raging instead on current affairs (well, Reagan’s long gone but, y’know, society issues, etc.), Iron Reagan sees LandPhil handling guitar with Burnette on bass. For a dude who values his daily brain bake on the weed, young LandPhil sure is keeping himself busy, shooting a new video for Cannabis Corpse too.

Anyways, presenting Iron Reagan.
