Idiosyncratic instrumental trio Dysrhythmia was formed in Philadelphia, PA in August of 1998 by guitarist Kevin Hufnagel and original bassist Clayton Ingerson, who were joined six months later by drummer Jeff Eber. The band made their debut in early 2000 with their self-released album, 'Contradiction'. Shortly thereafter, the band re-entered the studio in 2001 to record the 'No Interference' record. This album helped to define and expand the band's sound, and was followed by extensive touring. In 2002, the band released two split albums, a 10" vinyl record with Thoughtstreams and a 7" split with Technician.
The band then signed to Relapse Records in October 2002. Entitled 'Pretest' their first album with Relapse was released in May of 2003 to positive critical acclaim. Metal Hammer Magazine named 'Pretest' one of the Top 10 Essential Mathcore albums of all time, while Revolver Magazine ranked the album among the top 20 albums of 2003 alongside of records by Radiohead, Metallica and others. The band began touring with bigger named acts such as Mastodon, High on Fire and The Dillinger Escape Plan and playing large music festivals including the 2003 and 2004 Relapse Contamination tour, the Relapse Records SXSW showcase in Austin, TX and the New England Metal and Hardcore festival, where the band was profiled by both MTV2 and Fuse. Bassist Clayton Ingerson left the group in November 2004.
To replace Ingerson, Dysrhythmia recruited Colin Marston, a member of the group Behold the Arctopus. The band then also decided to relocate to NYC. Dysrhythmia next embarked on tours with Isis, and These Arms Are Snakes. They recorded and released their fourth full-length album, 'Barriers and Passages' at B.C. Studios in Brooklyn with engineer Martin Bisi, who had previously worked with Swans and Sonic Youth. 'Barriers and Passages' was released in May of 2006. The band continued touring throughout 2006 and 2007, and released a split titled 'Fractures' with UK bass-drone trio Rothko in late 2007.
Dysrhythmia stayed relatively quiet in 2008 as Hufnagel and Marston pursued their own individual projects. Marston continued recording and touring with Behold the Arctopus and Krallice while Hufnagel released his first full-length solo record. Both Hufnagel and Marston also joined the long-standing technical death metal band Gorguts.
After the short break, Dysrhythmia entered their own Menegroth Studios in Queens, NY to record their fifth full-length release, 'Psychic Maps'. The album, darker in mood than any previous albums, was engineered and produced by Marston and was released in July of 2009 via Relapse. They began touring in October 2009 in support of the new album. Tours included their first European run in June and July of 2010, and a U.S. and Canadian tour following shortly after, supporting Cynic, and Intronaut. In May 2012 the band entered Marston's studio again to record their sixth full-length studio album entitled 'Test of Submission' released in August of 2012 on Profound Lore Records. Their seventh full-length album 'The Veil of Control' followed in 2016, also released on Profound Lore Records. The band embarked on their second European tour, this time with Gorguts, Psycroptic, and Nero di Marte, in addition to US dates with Sabbath Assembly.
2019 sees the band celebrating their 20th anniversary and returning with their eighth and most metallic album yet. Titled 'Terminal Threshold', the trio has this time summoned it's most aggressive tendencies to unleash an apocalyptic post-prog thrash instrumental masterclass, via Translation Loss Records.
