Kevorkian Death Cycle is an American electro-industrial band from Riverside, California. 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.)

Collection for Injection was re-issued in 2000, and a re-mix single of their cover of "Relax" was released in 2001.

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.

KDC recently played their first live performances in nearly a decade. A "One Night Only" show, September 11, 2010 at the Que Sera in Long Beach, California, followed by a show featuring an earlier line-up (Jarvis, Gribbin, Robinson, Ripes, Cardamone, and Whiteman) and guest vocalist Amanda Jones (a well-known LA-area club DJ), on December 10, 2010, at Das Bunker in Los Angeles, California.
