Tyranny of Failure cover art
ironreagan

Richmond, Virgina supergroup crossover stars Iron Reagan have released a new cut from their forthcoming album Tyranny of Failure. The song is called "Miserable Failure" and it thrashes and dashes for two quick minutes. Check out the track below. Tyranny of Failure will be out on Relapse on September 16 (preorder). "Miserable Failure"'s drop happens to coincide with Iron Reagan's tour kick off in Washington, D.C., with Eyehategod, Vektor, and Strong Intention. That stacked bill hits NYC at the Acheron on July 15 (tickets).

In other Relapse news, records from Brooklyn's Mortals and the grindy hardcore project of wrestler UltraMantis Black hit the streets this week. As expected, Mortals' Cursed to See the Future was a massive monument to crust, heavy metal, and Hellhammer. They'll be playing the Acheron on July 18 for their record release show. The related Belus will also be playing the Acheron on August 9 along with the Welcome to Deathfest screening. UltraMantis Black, on the other hand -- along with members of Pissed Jeans -- revived mid '90s metallic hardcore for his EP that spits an acidic dissonance. The towering wrestler will be playing Philadelphia's This is Hardcore on July 24.

Let me guess, they stopped making money off municipal waste. Same shit re-branded. Fad is up, guys.

Everyone but 6:21. Where can I find your record? What lable are you on? Where's your band playing? Are you touring? You all must be really awesome to lay down your judgment on people who actually make a living preforming.

^^do you say the same thing when people who criticize movies? That's an exhausted, straw man argument.

The difference between you guys and actual critics (movie, music or otherwise), is the they back up their opinions with some reasoning. For example why does the art suck? Is it technically bad? Is it not to scale? Why is he the worst drummer ever? Is the timing off? Are the fills sloppy? You see you would be taken more seriously if your opinion had something to back it up. Otherwise it is just childish name calling, very playground and immature. To my friend above, 9:36, I'm afraid you maybe beyond hope. That is if you can read this far.

I have no doubt you'll just keep proving my point. Your kind are very predictable.

Funny thing is, none of you could answer the questions. Be careful crossing the street & remember to look both ways kids. The world would be at a loss without you.

I said he's a shitty person, not a shitty drummer. Thanks.

@9:01 - they're all members of the Rolling Stones, so I think they get a say.

Exactly, the thrash revival trend is almost as bad and creatively bankrupt as the beachy stoner bands like Wavves. Life sucks.

I think everyone who 'reads' this blog wishes the comments were more of a discussion. also what 10:49 said. but every trend always has one or two stand outs.

^yeah, I'm really pining for some super intellectual conversation on whether some music is 'good' or not. That's always fascinating.

Perhaps each band occupy's it's own universe within the Relapse Multiverse and every so often two or more band universe's collide and overlap into each other creating temporal and spacial anomalies. Each band's universe could be a projection of their concision and unconscious thoughts, explaining how seemingly impossible events can occur.
