Richmond crossover thrash supergroup Iron Reagan (featuring members of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse and Darkest Hour) hearken back to an earlier generation of thrash icons – Exodus, DRI, Anthrax, Nuclear Assault – but their sound manages to evade the cartoonish excess and nostalgia overload of the "retro thrash" movement. Iron Reagan succeeds by distilling their music down to the bare essentials of speed and anger. And if heavy metal and hardcore history shows us anything, it's a winning combination. Legendary metal label Relapse seemed to think so too, snapping them up and releasing the well-regarded LP The Tyranny of Will in 2014. The quintet is staging a brief incursion into Florida this week, and it's a lucky stroke for Orlando. If you like your metal loud, streamlined and ready for a circle pit at a moment's notice, have we got a Sunday for you.

with False Punk, American Party Machine, Rhythm of Fear | 8 p.m. Sunday, May 8 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $10-$12
