Richmond, Virginia metal mob Iron Reagan play that late-’80s hybrid of hardcore and speed metal that quickly came to be known as crossover. They’ve got speed and intensity and hooks and a sweaty, furious live show that you absolutely have to catch at least once in your life. Later this week, they’ll release a new album called Crossover Ministry! — punctuation theirs — and it kicks a whole lot of ass. We’ve posted the early songs “A Dying World,” “Grim Business,” and “Bleed The Fifth.” And right now, you can stream the whole riotous thing below, via Noisey.
Crossover Ministry! is out 2/3 on Relapse.
