Dry Kill Logic make some thoroughly aggressive music intended to entertain the listener and hopefully make them move around in the process. The songs contained within The Darker Side of Nonsense don't just rock, they bludgeon the listener like a frozen leg of beef to the skull. From the violent chorus of the album's opening track, where vocalist Cliff Rigano offers the mathematical equation "Me + You = Nightmare!" to the frenetic sway of "Rot," prepare yourself for a roller coaster ride into mayhem. While some may be eager to dismiss Dry Kill Logic as a less complex Mudvayne, most will find The Darker Side of Nonsense a solid album of modern heavy rock. Rigano's lyrics are full of easily identifiable themes, such as the darker side of relationships ("Pain," "Nothing"), coping with stress ("Weight"), and having to deal with those who are full of themselves ("A Better Man Than Me"). Dry Kill Logic put their best foot forward on The Darker Side of Nonsense, an album that succeeds in bringing out the inner frustration inside us all.
