Iron Reagan is “the other band” of Muncipal Waste frontman Tony Foresta so, if you’ve been lucky enough to catch his main band live, you’ll know exactly how simple, straightforward and fun that band is. The premise is the same with Iron Reagan; yes the lyrics may be more message-driven, but they are backed up by sub-two minute bursts of glorious skater-hardcore-crossover-thrash fun.

With 24 tracks filling this half hour listen, Iron Reagan have no intention of messing about. Straight to the point tracks like “Eyeball Gore,” “Miserable Failure” and “Rat Shit,” well, basically every fucking track on the record, sees the band batter your ears with a loose-sounding, raucous blast of crossover thrash. Honestly, trying to sell this album to you is pointless because if you own any album by S.O.D., Municipal Waste, Gangreen, Suicidal Tendancies or the Cro-Mags from the last twenty five years, then Tyranny Of Will is going to be right up your street. Of course it’s not a brain-tester by any means, it’s just a bunch of mates smashing out some great crossover hardcore thrash that will appeal to everyone from skater kids to hardcore pit scrappers.

With little in the way of variety, but plenty in the way of moshing, slamming madness, once you’ve listened to this album you will have Iron Reagan high up on your list of bands to see live. Tyranny Of Will is a fun, frantic, thirty minute of crossover. Don’t expect the earth from it, but do expect a really enjoyable, messy listen.

Check out the song “Miserable Failure”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
