The DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES’ history begins on May 2, 1982 around 4:00pm, in the city of Houston, TX. It was on this day that the musically aggressive quartet we now know as D.R.I. made their first Dirty Rotten noise and called it a song. Back then it was Spike Cassidy (guitar), Kurt Brecht (vocals), Eric Brecht (drums), and Dennis Johnson (bass).
Dirty Rotten Imbeciles (also known as D.R.I.) are a United States hardcore punk/thrashcore/crossover thrash band that formed in Houston, Texas, in 1982. The band currently comprises founding members, vocalist Kurt Brecht and guitarist Spike Cassidy, as well as drummer Rob Rampy and bassist Harald Oimoen.
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 —most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, and Stormtroopers of Death— alongside whom they are considered pioneers of what would later be called “crossover thrash.” This subgenre was also coined from their 1987 album Crossover.

some reviews of LUCIKA “The Mangler”
“Like a Melvins/Jesus Lizard/Unsane hellraisin’ hoedown,Oregon’s post-metal whackos Lucika provide a prolific plethora of Pacific Northwest putrity,with plenty of pile-driving paranoia and truly parasitic tones to pull off their powerfully-fucked post metal…Totally fucked,diverse stalker metal,that is just what it is…this madness is genius.” -Dave Brenner METAL MANIACS MAGAZINE(NY)
“Death,black,with a perverted intellectualism” -George Politopolous FLIGHT OF PEGASUS RADIO(Athens,Greece)
“5 tracks of solid metal. The singer(Skutch)sounds like he is singing from his last dying breath,and really pours his heart out singing these tunes. I love the heavy,low-tuned guitar sound they use. The production is thick and this is a very good release. I look forward to hearing more from these guys.” Chris Forbes,editor METAL CORE FANZINE(NJ)
“A brutal peice of extreme metal,killer riffs with extreme growls and surprisingly clear vocals. Cool,powerful sound. Rhythmic,bulldozing drums and amazing bass parts. Elements of thrash,metal,and extreme sounds. One brutal explosion,with a mixture of a bit of old-school metal to destroy your fucking ears!” -NOISE HOUR RADIO (Las Palmas,Spain)
“Simply sick post metal…contains elements of both death,thrash,black-metal,and psychedelic rock. Favorite tracks are “The Mangler”which is somehow more in a black-metal mood but with clean vocals. And “Made Humble By Horns”,which is brutal as hell. I must say this band from Oregon,USA deserves your full attention,as they are looking to spread their sickness across to Europe and the world.” -Bato METAL REVOLUTION(Denmark)
Some review for LUCIKA “Unnerving Depth of Black”
“These guys mete out some heavy,gloomy sludge…a singer that sounds like he’s gonna cough up his spleen at any moment. Good,and loud,metallic,yet with a groove.” -RAZORCAKE MAGAZINE(L.A.)
“Hauntcore,I think it’s a mixture of raw black metal meets THE MELVINS,with harder hitting stuff like GODFLESH and a touch of old shock rock like ALICE COOPER or GG ALLIN.” -Keegan Irvine WSZ (Toronto,Canada)
“Great CD,thrash influenced…modern sound,but with an old-school touch.” -NORTHERN WARRIOR PRODUCTIONS(Malaysia)
