Dry Kill Logic is a four-piece metal band from Westchester County, New York, USA. They formed in 1993 (under the name Hinge) and are still active. They have released three albums, their most recent being Of Vengeance and Violence which was released on September 16, 2006.



Psychodrama Records (1997–1999)

After being together as a band for four years, they recorded and released (under their previous band name, Hinge) their first EP in 1997 titled Cause Moshing is Good Fun under Psychodrama Records – the band's own label.

The band's second EP Elemental Evil (1999) was once again released through their own label. The nine-track disc led them to open for many well-recognized acts including Coal Chamber, Incubus, Anthrax and System of a Down. This EP remains the only known release in popular culture to contain a track entitled "Pork Chop Sandwich".

The Darker Side of Nonsense (2000–2003)

In 2000, Hinge signed a record deal with Roadrunner Records. After signing with the label, they were forced to change their name due to a recording studio owning the copyright to the same name. They briefly changed their name from Hinge to Hinge A.D., but ultimately settled upon Dry Kill Logic after the studio threatened legal action if they used the word "Hinge" anywhere in their name.

On June 5, 2001, their debut album The Darker Side of Nonsense was released. The album features a guest spot from Primer 55 members J-Sin (vocals) and Bobby Burns (guitar) on the track "Give Up, Give In, Lie Down". The band spent the better part of 2001 and 2002 on tour, performing around the world with such bands as Fear Factory, Kittie, Ill Niño, Spineshank, Saliva, Slayer and many others. The album went on to sell approximately 100,000 copies worldwide.[1] However, due to Roadrunner wanting "a more commercial sound on the band's second effort", the band decided to part ways with the label in October 2002. Around the same time, the band split with guitarist Scott Thompson, replacing him with former Gargantua Soul guitarist Jason Bozzi, who remains with the group to this day.[2][3]

The Dead and Dreaming (2004–2006)

On October 5, 2004, the band released their second major album The Dead and Dreaming, via Psychodrama Music Group with deals through two independent record labels – Repossession Records and German label SPV Records. This forward thinking arrangement was spearheaded by PMG and not only ensured a simultaneous worldwide release but also positioned the band to be the driving force behind every aspect of their career. Heading back in their van in 2004 the band toured for 15 months straight, beginning with Motörhead in Germany and working their way up to co-headlining tours with Hed PE and Drowning Pool, culminating with being hand picked by Dave Mustaine to become a crowd favorite on the 2005 Gigantour arena tour. The band also made waves overseas, and in 2006 headlined two tours of the UK and Europe as well as touring Australia with Fear Factory and Devildriver.

On June 27, 2006, the band produced, designed and directed their first DVD/EP titled The Magellan Complex, which was a lead up for the band's upcoming album. The disc includes three songs and a bonus DVD consisting of the music video for "Paper Tiger", a live performance/interview piece from the Otep/American Head Charge tour (February 2005, New Orleans) as well as behind the scenes footage of the band on tour. This project was put together by the band for the fans, and includes artwork by guitarist Jason Bozzi, audio production by Phil Arcuri and video direction by Cliff Rigano. The band also demanded a low retail price in order to make the product more affordable for their fans worldwide.

Of Vengeance and Violence (Late 2006–Present)

On September 19, 2006, Dry Kill Logic's third full-length album Of Vengeance and Violence was released worldwide via Psychodrama/Repossession Records. The band embarked on tours of Australia and Europe throughout 2006. The band has plans for performances in the United States, Canada and Japan, as well as return trips to Europe and Australia, through 2007. Repossession Records closed its doors in January 2007, and the band plans on releasing all their upcoming new material directly through Psychodrama Music Group.

Other Recordings

As a bonus feature in the video game MLB Slugfest 2003, the band did a special recording and music video for the game. The original song is loosely based on the baseball classic Take Me Out to the Ball Game and is entitled "Riot at the Bat Rack." [1]
