I have to give credit to the guys from Dry Kill Logic for sticking with it through everything after being picked by Roadrunner Records and then thrown away just as quickly when they refused to go a more radio friendly route. This is by far their best release to date with a good mix of Hatebreedesque stomp in the likes of "Boneyard" and "Dead Man's Eyes" but also showing they're unafraid to show a softer side with cuts like "Kingdom Of The Blind" and "In Memoria Di" which proves they're not caught up in all the poser alpha male bs inherent in the metal scene.

I love the sound of Dry Kill Logic... This new album only makes my appetite for Dry Kill Logic albums larger. However all is not well with this album. Towards the end of the album the tracks get samey and poor. The sound of Dry Kill Logic is good, but the last three tracks (excluding In Memoria Di) all sound exactly the same... They may just as well be one long 10 minute track. I'm glad Dry Kill Logic have continued the tradition of having an accoustic track at the end... However, it still doesn't make up for the blan sameyness of the last three tracks. Definantly buy this album, it kicks ass, but don't be too over exited as you may be dissapointed.

Also rans in the time of nu-metal Dry Kill Logic have definitely improved with age and this is a far more mature offering than The Darker Side of Nonsense.

They have progressed to something resembling Machine head meets Shadows Fall I know that sounds great but they fall just short of the mark. Yes the riffs are pretty good, as are some of the songs on here but the vocals become a bit samey and it lacks the hooky breakdowns that made them a bit special in the first place (listen to rot or paper tiger to hear what I mean).

The addition of some guitar solos is obviously an attempt to bring them inline with most of what is going on in Metal right now and to some extent suceeds, but my main problem with this album is the workman like drumming. There is some double kick work that is sometimes impressive but it just feels like the drummer is on autopilot and he is not in the same league as Brann dailor (Mastodon),or Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall).

Pretty standard fare all in all obviuosly they are making an effort to distance themselves from their past but they have yet to find something of their own to offer and in a world dominated by inventive and progressive metal bands it just doesnt cut it..

Try instead Shadows Fall The War Within, Machine Head Burn My Eyes or Unearth The Oncoming Storm

5.0 out of 5 stars "Dry Kill" is Killer 14 Sept. 2009
By D. P. Conrow - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Wow, great CD. These guys have a great "not over produced" sound, they have a little sound of all the bands I like: Slipknot, Nothingface, American Head Charge, Mudvayne, maybe a little Killswitch, That "Metalcore/Alternative Metal" sound. Not to say they don't have their own sound, they do, and it's great. The last CD was good too, Check it out , it won't dissapoint!

4.0 out of 5 stars Metal Survivalists Grow Stronger. 27 Oct. 2006
By Andy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Despite the fact that their music hasn't quite found it's audience, despite the fact that they may never quite gain the same level of success as their peers, Dry Kill Logic still press on, doing what they do best. And you have to respect them for it. With their Roadrunner debut, "The Darker Side Of Nonsense," it seemed like the band were destined for bigger things, as that album was a perfect snapshot of nu-metal at the time, taking elements from the likes of Slipknot and Mudvayne. However, things fell apart and when they finally re-emerged in 2004, with "The Dead And Dreaming," they had a more modern sound, fusing what was already established on the debut with the modern metalcore sound. As strong as it was, that album never quite took off either. So it's no surprise that on their third album, "Of Vengeance And Violence," DKL sound comfortable just being themselves and playing good, hard, honest music. They've made it this far, does it really matter what scene they fit into? No.

Sounds Like: A great metal band who refuse to fold.

The Good:

- Cliff's vocals have improved immensely and his lyrics sound more passionate than ever.

- The band seems to have more of an identity now. No longer do they sound like a Hatebreed or Mudvayne cover band.

- The music branches out into new territories, delivering some exceptional ballads in the midst of it all.

The Bad:

- The heavier songs tend to blend with one another too much.

- The album doesn't really take off until the second half.

Hits: "From Victim to Killer," "Confidence Vs. Consequences," "Lying Through Your Teeth," and the softer songs "Kingdom Of The Blind" and "In Memoria Di."

Future: Well, it may not be Dry Kill Logic's big hit, but definitely insures that the guys are going strong. Most bands probably would have given up by this point, but not this one.

Personally: The first two DKL albums didn't exactly qualify as classics in my book. This one comes pretty damn close. It's easily the most competent and fully realized album of their career.

Best Listened To When: Today's metal gets rusty.

5.0 out of 5 stars One HUGE step forward! 20 Sept. 2006
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been a fan of DKL since "The Darker Side of Nonesense," amd I must say that this album destroys their previous two. The sound is there, Cliff's vocals are different, but not so that you wouldn't recognize them, they are just more polished. And in so being, I would argue that he has the best range of any singer in modern metal today, BAR NONE! This man can scream so well your hair will stand on end and at the same time can sing so well you'd think it wasn't the same person.

As is the case with the rest of the band, everything has just come up a HUGE notch from "Dead and Dreaming." The latter album seemed to plod (albeit heavily) along at times, this monster keeps roaring from start to finish. The songs tempo seems more upbeat and driving. Pushing you to the next track and by the time the album is over with you might just find yourself out of breath.

The drum work by Phil Arcuri is very well done. His tempo drives each song, where as on the last album it was a very heavy accompaniment. The same would have to be said for the guitar and bass playing, Jason Bozzi seemed to be drown out a times by the heaviness of the drums and Cliff's amazing growls on "Dead and Dreaming." Were as now he is clearly at the forefront of the bands sound. Which lends to a more "metal" sound and should lead to less people trying to push the band into a "nu-metal" moniker.

The first track, "L5(Prologue)", begins with some cooky sounds of feedback and then 59 seconds later rips into "My Dying Heart," quickly establishing the pace that the band has come to adopt. I for one enjoy this quickening of pace and polish of sound. Where "Darker Side of Nonesense" was raw and "Dead and Dreaming" was a progressive step forward so is this album. We are seeing the evolution of what just might be one of the more dominant metal bands around.

Highlight tracks... the whole damn thing!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Dry Kill Logic's third album 16 Dec. 2006
By Mahalie - Published on
Format: Audio CD
In my opinion, there is no way Dry Kill Logic could possibly do anything bad. This is their third album as Dry Kill Logic, previously Hinge, and it's another amazing one. As you listen, you can tell they're growing more comfortable exploring their talents. With a few tracks you can see them get away from their normally metal-core songs. I would have had a problem with this if it wasn't executed so perfectly. The album flows well and there is never a time where I would want to skip a track. Pick up all 3 albums and support Dry Kill Logic. They don't get nearly enough attention, especially for being so damn good.
5.0 out of 5 stars third time's a charm 20 April 2007
By Lukas J. Running - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is by far DKL's best record to date. They have matured by leaps and bounds and have grown both musically and lyrically. They have not sacrificed any of their heaviness, but are getting better at writing great hooks. They usually have some softer songs on their albums, and this is no exception. Song number 8 may be my favorite DKL song. It is really catchy. If you are new to DKL, this is the one to get first. If you like it, you will like the other two cds, but their debut is very chaotic and immature compared to their newer stuff.
