"Of Vengeance and Violence" (Repossession Records; 2006)

Reviewed by Snidermann


"Of Vengeance and Violence" is an ear-splitting, hard-driving good time. I reviewed the band's earlier "The Dead And Dreaming" in 2004 (below) and this new release is a great continuation of what they were doing then. 

Dry Kill Logic is one of the best and most consistent metal acts out there "Of Vengeance and Violence" is ample evidence of that. In fact, it's one of the best CDs I've heard this year.

"Dead and Dreaming" (Repossession Records; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann


Dry Kill Logic's "Dead and Dreaming" is what metal should be - hard, heavy and furiously drilling music at its head banging best. 

This is the band's second recording, the first being "The Darker Side Of Nonsense" released in 2001 and reviewed below. Dry Kill Logic has it all: superior music, excellent vocals and an explosive presentation that had me spinning the CD a least three times upon receiving it.

This band has the style and the sound to become one of the premier bands of this decade. Loud and to the point, Dry Kill Logic puts their message out there proudly and with no excuses. This shit is alive and fresh and should be listened to by any and all metal fans. 

 Dry Kill Logic: Cliff Rigarno - vocals; Jason Bazzi - guitar; Danny Horboychuk - bass; Phil Arcuri - drums.

"The Darker Side of Nonsense" (Roadrunner Records; 2001)

Reviewed by Kate Smith


Dry Kill Logic started out in 1997 with their EP, "Cause Moshing is Good Fun." First known as Hinge, then Hinge A.D., and then changed for the final time to Dry Kill Logic, they have proven with their this CD, "Darker Side of Nonsense," that the quality doesn't change with their name.

Cliff shows the aggression in his vocals that have been missing from most new bands. "Feel the Break" shows their musicianship, great transitions from slower verses to heavy choruses, flowing nicely from beginning to end.

"Track 13" starts out with a slower riff that could be compared to Soundgarden. Cliff really shows off his vocals here; it varies from slow and clean to heavy and distorted throughout the song but he exposes us to his "clean" voice and proves that he can definitely sing. "Pain" is one of my favorites on the album, a little disconcerting to hear his vocals go from a full scream to a soft whisper on different parts but a great song nonetheless.

Cliff's voice melds well with Scott's guitar riffs, Philip's drums and Dave on bass, keeping the album versatile enough to keep the listener interested. Dry Kill Logic shows promise for future metal bands.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
