DRI: Violent Pacification: EP

Nov 02, 2010

Wow! This looks pretty much like the original version. The only difference is the label who released it, the barcode, and the lyrics sheet is now printed on the inside of the foldout cover. Musically, this still holds up. Just as rippin’ today as it was in 1984. Fast as hell without being a blur or dull. DRI could thrash like no one else, yet their songs were memorable. Also, there’s no overkill of one hundred songs or so, like many bands do, who suck on the tit of DRI. There are five songs; short and to the point. Leaves you wanting more. So go get the twenty-two song EP to satisfy the need. Great job on Beer City for the superb reissue treatment.
