YEAR OF METAL title

DRI

Coming into existence in 1982 and inadvertently given their band name Dirty Rotten Imbeciles by the father of the vocalist and drummer brothers, D.R.I. pretty much coined the label “crossover” with the release of the album called as such in 1987. They never could get beyond just the underground to get the success that was afforded to other contemporaries of the genre, despite inspiring others in the hardcore punk and crossover thrash areas. Pity, really.

“Snap”

“Tear It Down”

“Thrashard”
