Dry Cell was a four-piece nu metal/hard rock music group originating from California in the United States. The band broke up late 2005, after vocalist Jeff Gutt and guitarist Danny Hartwell departed.
= Part of the band formed in 1998 when guitarist Danny Hartwell and drummer Brandon Brown met at the "Ratt Show" on the Sunset Strip. They later met up with then-vocalist Judd Gruenbaum. The original name of the band was "Beyond Control".
After forming, the guys caught the attention of a Warner Brothers A&R Executive, Jeff Blue (responsible for Linkin Park), who then signed the band to a development deal. He also found a new lead singer for the band in Jeff Gutt from Detroit.
In an interview with the website, "The A&R Online", Mr. Blue described Dry Cell (at the time tentatively called "ImpÃºr") as: "they're like Metallica meets Incubus meets Linkin Park but heavier. No DJing, no rapping, very melodic and the kids are just phenomenal musicians".1<...
