Iron Reagan  

Worse Than Dead is a potent debut from this Virginia band that started out as a Municipal Waste side project. Slotting firmly in the hardcore/thrash/crossover field, the songs are quick bursts of thrashing energy, with Tony Foresta's vocals bearing a slight resemblance to Nuclear Assault's John Connelly from back in the day. As of this writing they've already put out a followup EP and album in 2014.
