KLOGR (pronounced Kay – log – are) is an Italian rock band that can be further broken down into the genres of alternative rock and alternative metal. The band’s name is a reference to the law of Weber-Fechner, developed in the second half of the 800s, which is known as the fundamental psycho-physical relationship (S = K log R).

The project, led by Gabriele “Rusty” Rustichelli (producer at ZetaFactory, former guitarist of SensAzionE and other Italian alternative projects), develops a powerful sound that draws energy from a philosophy that challenges the contemporary culture, where every sense is clevery used against men in the name of profit.  Along with Rusty (vocals and guitars), KLOGR is backed by the alternative rock band, Timecut, which includes Gian Paolo Viesti (backup vocals and guitar), Joba (bass) and Ste (drums).  All together, they complete the solid line-up of KLOGR.

The idea of KLOGR starting taking shape inside of the studio in May 2010 with, along side of Rusty, Nicola Briganti (guitars), Todd Allen (bass) and Filippo De Pietri (drums). When June of 2011 came about, the group began recording for their debut album at the ZetaFactory studio.  From that point on, Klogr captured the attention of the public and aroused much curiousity among professionals and fans by publishing several viral videos, showing the progress of the band in the studio.

11-11-11 brought the world premier of the band’s live show and the release of ‘Till You Decay’.  The band performed the new album in it’s entirety and was received with much ethusiasm and support from fans.

In January 2012, Klogr set off on a promotional West Coast tour of the United States and gave many people a reason and desire to pay attention to Italy’s alternative scene.

In June 2012, after several dates back in Italy, KLOGR embarked on France mini-tour and were once again well received by the concert goers and music enthusiasts, confirming the interest of the project in Europe.

With the release of ‘Till You Turn’ (November 2012), KLOGR began a new chapter of the band and invited Timecut to participate in the project backing up Rusty. This led to a whole new energy and momentum of the band that can be seen and experienced when they are on stage.  Together, this massively talented band is shaping up to be one of the most interesting live acts of the Italian and International independent scene.
