XL & DBD are an early example of rapcore, the mixing of metal and rap. Todd 'XL' Stevens is the lead guitarist and the primary songwriter. XL can be seen as a veteran, since he's been active since the early 1990s in holy hip hop. The name XL was given to Todd Stevens by the Dynamic Twins in 1990, because of his size. The bandname DBD stands for Death Before Dishonor.
XL has performed live with Soldiers For Christ (SFC), the Dynamic Twins and Peace 586 plus rock bands.
