We’d like to welcome crossover legends┬áD.R.I┬áback at Brakrock 2020. D.R.I. never gained a mainstream audience, but the integration of their hardcore punk roots with thrash metal influences was a stylistic catalyst for their contemporaries (like Suicidal Tendencies) alongside whom they are considered pioneers of what would later be called “crossover thrash.” This subgenre was also coined from their 1987 album Crossover.
