Biography

Ohgr is a band formed by Nivek Ogre, of Skinny Puppy, and musician/engineer Mark Walk. Although the pedigree of the group’s members might suggest otherwise, Ohgr is not strictly an group, as it draws from elements of /, , and even .
Unlike Ogre’s earlier Skinny Puppy work, Ohgr has a more conventional structure to its music as well as a lighter tone, lyrically and musically.

The band was officially formed in 2001, although the material for the first album, Welt dates back to the mid-nineties, having been held up due to legal trouble with American Records. The first work produced by the band was actually the soundtrack for the computer game ‘Descent II’, but it was a number of years before their first album was released. Welt was originally the title of the group, a long standing acronym from early Skinny Puppy years when, shortly after Bill Leeb (of Front Line Assembly) left the band, Ogre graffitied “Wilhelm Eats Lunch Today” around Vancouver due to their then-acrimonious split. It was then refined to the less antagonistic “When Everyone Learns Truth”. It was later discovered that in the interval, the name had been taken by a Californian band.

ohGr’s third album titled Devils In My Details was released on October 17th, 2008 in Germany, October 20th in the United Kingdom, and October 21st in the United States.

    ohGr sounds from the first two album are unique to this project... but later works blur in with Skinny Puppy and vice versa for recent Puppy works.

    On the contrary, while your comment weakly attempts to flatter me, it's bloody annoying to see starstruck nin fanboys / girls drooling over him in every shoutbox that's Skinny Puppy related. Obsessed much? Stop dickriding.

    Man, bEATWEAKer is so obsessed with Trent Reznor. He's constantly making cute nicknames for him and talks about him in dozens of shoutboxes all over Last.fm. It's so cute.

    DIMD > unDeveloped > SunnypPsyOp > Welt. I think unDeveloped is REALLY good, it sounds a little more like SP compared to the other releases. But DIMD has a special place in my heart.

    for me it's unDeveloped = SunnyPsyOp > DIMD > Welt. I got bored of Welt for listening to it so much.

    I prefer his solo project more than his work in Skinny Puppy. I like both, but wow. Amazing work, Ogre.

    Subcon makes the best electronic music, by far.

    unDeveloped is so awesome. I think its under appreciated and hasn't got the recognition it deserves.

    Welt and SunnyPsyOp will always hold a special place in my heart, possibly because of so many stoned high school memories. [2]
