WGN’s Outsiders Season Two Pits Old Ways Against Progress With Mixed Results

From the other side of the mountain […]

Iron Reagan’s “Crossover Ministry” Will Exorcise Your Post-Election Demons

Editor’s Note: Move over, “Art of Partying.” My new anthem is “Fuck the Neighbors.” If there’s any truth to the general predictions of more profoundly heavy music emerging due to our current political shitstorm, Iron Reagan is already ten steps ahead.  Crossover Ministry is the quick fix that pulls you away from CNN and into a whirlwind of craftily executed thrash magic.   There are two factors I believe make this album one to be reckoned with in 2017, the first […]
