SongoftheDay: CYCLE OF VIOLENCE by IRON REAGAN
Crossover certainly isn’t extinct. It is alive and well and has seen a bit of a resurgence over the past few years. One of the best contemporary purveyors of this genre is Richmond, Virginia’s IRON REAGAN (featuring members of MUNICIPAL WASTE & DARKEST HOUR). CYCLE OF VIOLENCE is the standout track from their 2013 release Worse Than Dead. The song rips cause it is sort of a reverse Thrash sandwich – where the mosh part is the pieces of bread and the fast part is the meat in the middle. Maybe this song is kinda like a KFC Double Down.
Here is a bonus Iron Reagan video in case you need some barf on your keyboard and shit in your pants. – BLAKE
(Blake Jacobs has been quaking bowels with his riffage for some 25 years now. Currently, he can be found bashing skulls with his crossover juggernaut World War 4, as well as the occasional alien landing of Manpower. For most, he can be found greeting patrons with his wizard smile at the amazing arcade-bar House of TARG in Ottawa, Canada.)
