Album Review

Dry Cell's debut album is a surprising amalgamation of melody and aggression along the lines of Linkin Park and Staind. Emerging from the cluttered alternative scene that is California, these four young men have put together an album that covers all the bases that add up to mainstream rock success, and although there is little on Disconnected that stands out from the slew of other young groups who have reached for the stars in 2002, Dry Cell has accomplished this while being comprised of three members who haven't even graduated from high school. If nothing else, Disconnected further proves that music is ageless, as these teenagers show an alarming knowledge of the music they wish to imitate. "Slip Away" kickstarts the album with a volatile burst of relentless pseudo-industrial rage that is reminiscent of Static-X, yet frontman Jeff Gutt has honed his vocal ability to seamlessly inflect pieces of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, Godsmack's Sully Erna, and Korn's Jonathan Davis. Musically Dry Cell shares much in common with other California groups, such as Papa Roach and Adema, as their crystal-clear crunch harks back to a tradition that has kept the West Coast alternative scene above water since 1995. A downside to Disconnected is the abundant similarities amongst the songs presented, as halfway through the album one would be hard-pressed to distinguish one track from another. This is a common mishap in the alternative metal world, as bands such as Dry Cell focus their attention on a few songs with marketability and overlook the rest of their disc, yet even when the album does lose its focus, it still benefits from amazing catchiness. This is what will bring the listeners flocking back, as Dry Cell's songs do have a tendency to remain in the listener's head long after they end. That fact, along with simplistic lyrics that are easy to identify with and understand, are most likely what equals success for these young Los Angeles teens, and Disconnected is a solid debut that finds the band delivering their crossover appeal on a national level. ~ Jason D.

i first heard about Dry Cell back in 2002 and since then couldnt get enough of them. Disconnected is one of the best albums i have ever heard and every song on this album is a winner. Its a shame that they broke up and after many years only re-released their 02 album...they could have released an album with the other 15 songs that never made it on a cd but i am still happy they put something out...i highly reccomend this cd to anyone its one of my favorites

It is a shame

It's a shame that this band is no longer around to produce amazing music.
when i first came across this album by total accident, i was amazed at the first song i heard "Body Crumbles".
except for 3 songs the rest of the album is just amazing! Even though they are not well known,i still believe if you like rock i say you listen to this album!!

Amazing Album, Amazing Band

One of my favorite CDs of all time from a band that never got the credit they deserved. It's a shame we never saw too much more from them, but I'm patiently awaiting anything else they have to offer. Also, if you like vocalist Jeff Gutt, check out Band With No Name's new CD Humanity too.


Formed: 1998

Years Active: '00s

Brandon Brown (drums), Danny Hartwell (guitar), Judd Gruenbaum (bass/vocals), and Jeff Gutt (vocals) comprise the heavy rock dose of Dry Cell. Hartwell and Brown first met in 1998 at a Ratt show in Los Angeles, only to later strike up conversation with Gruenbaum. The three called themselves Beyond Control and began playing shows in and around Los Angeles. Gigs at the Roxy and the House of Blues proved prominent. Warner Bros. took notice of Beyond Control, but the band realized they needed an extra...
