Iron Reagan – “Take the Fall / “Bleed the Fifth”
Crossover outfit Iron Reagan, the supergroup featuring members of Municipal Waste, Darkest Hour, Cannabis Corpse and Hellbear, have released two new songs in preparation for their upcoming third record, Crossover Ministry.
The first, "Take the Fall", comes from a flexi disc series for New Noise Magazine, which premiered at Noisey. It's a fun, if relatively straightforward song, featuring a nice squealing solo at the end.
The other, "Bleed the Fifth", runs a little hotter. Like most songs on Crossover Ministry, it sports a simple-but-catchy riff, and stays as mosh friendly as possible for most of its runtime.
Iron Reagan's first two records, didn't really connect with me. At the time, I just wanted more Municipal Waste - specifically I wanted the band to sound like Hazardous Mutation and Art of Partying again. On Crossover Ministry, though Iron Reagan capture the brash spirit of those records in a more convincing way than Municipal Waste have since. It's a strong album because every song works as well as "Bleed the Fifth" does.
