Kevorkian Death Cycle is an electro-industrial band from Riverside, California, USA. The band was originally named Grid and later changed their name to the politically motivated Kevorkian Death Cycle. The band released its first album, Collection for Injection, on the Ras Dva label. After a 1997 tour with Spahn Ranch, they became popular with the underground community. The band moved to the Metropolis label in 1998 and in the fall released their second album Dark Skies. They later played with Front 242 and went on tour with Front Line Assembly.
In 1999, they released their third album, A+0(M). This album contained a cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Relax”. They also went on their two-month “Free Jack” tour of North America. (“Jack” here refers to Jack Kevorkian.) As a side project, in the spring of 2006, Roger Jarvis hooked up with Taury Goforth from Dead Hand Projekt to form an Industrial/EBM/IDM band called HexRx.
Fast forward over 12 years later and now signed with Negative Gain Productions, they are back with 3 out of 4 original members, a new single, video, and full length album. Kevorkian Death Cycle has inspired many and now will inspire the future beginning with their new album “God Am I”.
“God Am I” is Kevorkian Death Cycle’s first album in twelve years. This band combines hard anthem beats, well-conceived lyrics, emotional vocals, captivating rhythms and an underlying deep, driving synth sound. They have long claimed a spot as one of the elites in the underground electro-industial circuit. Whether it’s throwing your defiant fist in the air or approvingly bobbing your head to the beat, this album will make your body move; especially songs like “Mind Decay”, “It’s A Sin”, “God I Am”, “Blood Of Faust” and “Tangled Souls”.
Kevorkian Death Cycle proves that they take their music seriously and after a 12-year break, weren’t just out to throw out another album. “God Am I” is an incredible album and will be praised by anyone who likes dark, but high energy electro-industrial, gothic or any EBM.

After their long hiatus, Kevorkian Death Cycle returns to leave their mark once again in the industrial scene with their latest album. From start to finish “God Am I” is incredible. It’s amazing what these guys can do with synthesizers and guitars. They manage to get a heavy rock industrial feel yet they still maintain a supreme dance edge; proving that they’re still light years ahead of the competition in the industrial and EBM music scene.
Kevorkian Death Cycle combines the dark lyrics of American industrial bands with the inspired, organized, and atmospheric electronic music of European industrial bands. The music is complex with simple melodies layered into delicately harsh vocals and strong industrial dance-beats, sustaining an excellent musical form.
It’s hard to even begin to describe the excellence of this album. All the lyrics are deep and thought-provoking. Every track has an infectious rhythm; from quiet beginnings, songs build to thundering tempos and memorable choruses. It’s hard not to dance while this album is spinning. While it is true that there are slower intense songs, it is clear that this album showcases a much more developed and well-formed hard-assed band, with depth and maturity to their music.
The power and the strength that Kevorkian Death Cycle display on “God Am I“, to be released the 17th September, is absolutely magnetizing. I recommend this album to anyone who enjoys depth, creativity, poignancy, and sweeping emotion.
