Kindergarten Hazing Ritual was formed in 2001. Cory Monster was going to school in Philadelphia PA when he started the project.

He made a demo called “Nothing Good Can Ever Come From Staying With Normal People” and printed out several mini CDs.
It wasn’t until 2003 the first full length was released. Made using Fruity Loops 3, an Ibanez talman and a Voice Master halloween toy acquired from CVS, it ran 32 tracks, and then 10 more on a hidden EP (known as “if you’re jaime kill yourself”). This was followed by an EP, again burned on mini CDRs, called “Making House Party 2 Look Like House Party 3”.
During this time, Cory started to become acquainted with other e-grind musicians at the time. Adam Cooley of Scissor Shock said they should do a split, so they each made 3 songs and the first KHR/Scissor Shock split was released online. Cory also submitted a track to a Canadian DIY label called Slut Factory for a compilation. A split with Iron Bitchface and a 3rd band was planned.
In 2004, KHR had a new batch of songs, a bunch of songs from the demo and “kill yourself” rerecorded and some covers. Cory put them together and released “KHR are the most hated band in existence”. It was originally just going to be covers, and that’s why it was given that name.
A split with Bayi was made in 2005, and this was followed by KHR’s first full length on a label Awaiting the Video Game Crash, presented by Brokecore.
In 2007, Cory Monster officially began releasing music through a new DIY net label 37564 Recordings. This label issued the 3rd full length Myspace the Album.
In 2010, KHR released an EP called Fuck Capcom. This was passed on to Jay Randall, who rereleased it on his Grindcore Karaoke site in 2011. KHR’s next full length Because Reality Is Shit was also released on Grindcore Karaoke.
