Exhumed / Iron Reagan split 12"

Split 12"
Released: January 7, 2014

I am a fan of both Exhumed and Iron Reagan. 
  • Exhumed for their mastery of gore inspired death metal.
  • Iron Reagan for their opportunity to further produce more thrash form the throat of Municipal Waste's Tony Foresta.

Exhumed provide four tracks, two of which are reckless death metal versions of hardcore classics. Exhumed is a friend to cover songs (see their disc "Garbage Daze Re-regurgitated" where they cover everyone from Led Zep to Siege). This is part of the reason I like them. On this split they destroy Minor Threat's "Seeing Red" and Negative Approach's "Ready to Fight" into a blurred death thrash wasteland.

Iron Reagan can simply do no wrong. As an extension of Municpal Waste, the thrash mania continues. I love everything. From the name to the vintage hardcore thrash influence. Iron Reagan creates a beautiful feeling with their music that brings to mind the greatest of pits orchestrated by the likes of DRI, RKL and any other 3 initial hardcore thrash band you can think of... and this is 2014 not 1984.
