D.R.I.

    The genre "crossover" was coined from a 1987 release, which basically sums up the sound of the thrash metal/punk-hardcore hybird.

    DRI is considered the first band that used the blast beat on their song "No Sense!".

    Other than touring constantly, D.R.I. has released no new material since their last album, Full Speed Ahead, was released in 1995. « hide
