Finally a label decided to pay tribute to D.R.I. iconic figure of american hardcore punk scene of the early 80s alongside Minor Threat or MDC. If the group performed a chaotic and lo-fi hardcore punk in the beginning, later opted for a more technical and metallic music-based thrash metal but with a unique style, crossover between their original hardcore, punk and thrash. Most of bands here, are frankly very unknown for me except Ratos De Porao and Capitalist Casualties, but the whole compilation is quite good and interesting.

The band seem to return to its roots and make songs more short, simple and direct, aka, more similar to american old hardcore punk from the early 80s decade. First DRI recordings come to my mind. Great album. Even the way to make and distribute the disk is closer to "Do It Yourself" phylosophy and DRI decide make all aspects in its own label "Rotten Records".

"Thrash Zone" is the fifth album by the famous and hardcore legend band D.R.I., which was released in 1989. It continues the same style of the previous album "4 of a Kind" but perhaps more thrash-metal sound oriented. "Thrash Zone" was D.R.I.'s most successful album to date and produced the song, "Beneath the Wheel", which was made as a music video and received airplay on MTV. The song also was featured in the video game Skate 2. In fact the album is the most close to thrash-metal music of DRI discography, but anyway is a very good album. The newest DRI album were / are a kind of return to their fast hardcore and punk roots. The main feature of this album (I think), is this sound so clear and clean, very clean. Few distortion than others works and also less fast, a little bit "calm" in comparaison to the first disks for example.

We've crushed all walls of conventional industry standards, carved our own niche and have always fought hard for our bands with . With a staff of industry veterans and the power of major label distribution, Rotten Records has always been on the cutting edge of extreme music, taking chances that other labels would never think about...

After several recordings of pure, fast and simple hardcore punk, but perhaps too amateur, the guys from Houston (DRI) matched 100% with your own formule, which they themselves called "crossover". This is their own cross between the rawness of punk, the velocity of hardcore and the thrash-metal high technical level. The album was a success and launched the band to popularity. Due the title "crossover" a lot of bands named its style as a also "crossover" in late 80´s decade.

Dirty Rotten EP/LP is the 1983 debut release by the hardcore / punk band Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. The album has a very gritty sound. It is considered one of the first fast-core albums ever, with ultra-simple and ultra-short songs. Originally released in 1982 as a 7" Dirty Rotten EP (played at 33 RPM) with 22 songs, it sold out quickly. It was later remixed and re-released as a full album with the same 22 songs, but in a different order, and titled Dirty Rotten LP. This album would also be combined with all four songs from their 1984 Violent Pacification EP. The Dirty Rotten LP was re-released yet again in 2003 as the Dirty Rotten CD, remixed and remastarized. Important to mention all songs have less than 1 minute duration. So, we could to be in front of the album more hardcore made ever. Enjoy it!!
