Video footage of hardcore/metal crossover pioneers D.R.I. (DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES) performing on November 9, 2011 at The Rock in Copenhagen, Denmark can be seen below.
D.R.I. drummer Rob Rampy recently took a well-needed break from touring with the band and recuperated from his bout with exhaustion and dehydration. The other members of the band continued playing shows with Walter "Monsta" Ryan (SUBZERO, MERAUDER, MACHINE HEAD, POSSESSED) sitting behind the kit.
D.R.I.'s classic 1987 album "Crossover" was reissued in April 2010 via Beer City Records. Available on LP, CD and as a digital download, the LP was remastered by Bill Metoyer, who was the engineer for the original recordings. The CD and digital version of the reissue include the original 13 songs plus 11 bonus tracks.
For the past 29 years, D.R.I. has been the epitome of the aggressive, hardcore-punk thrash sound that we've all become accustomed to hearing. Throughout this time, they've been one of the few genuine underground bands to remain true to their pure punk roots. Still actively touring and recording, the only thing that may have changed is that they're a little older now, but time hasn't gotten the best of the DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES. They're still thrashing just as hard, and just as loud as ever, continuing to overload our senses with the sound that is, and will always remain, uniquely D.R.I.
