ohGr

Profile:
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 industrial group, as it draws heavily from elements of electro-pop, metal, and even hip hop. The sound diverges heavily from that of Ogre's earlier Skinny Puppy work, incorporating a more conventional structure as well as a lighter tone, lyrically and musically.

Might be so. However, my problem with the ”Ohgr” is that this project is so extremely bad/shallow in comparison with his other/earlier performances. And that it is so obvious he needs someone like cKey to guide him… Simple as that. It’s like if a great renowned Author leaves the grounds of ground-breaking novels for the gossip/sell-out in simple shallow magazines, in my estimation. The ”hemorrhoid”-thing refers to the guys voice versus the simple music/musical production. Just listen… I won’t.

Incredible!!! Is this the same guy that performed the verbal Mad Barking Doggy Dog World of saints Skinny Puppy for some twenty years…? The same Guy that went into hospital instead of performing in Malmö 1986 because of jaundice? Can’t fucking beleive it. On his own, without cKey, he produces someth that is so incredibly bad - Really embarrassing stuff, with vocals that sounds like they’re coming from someone who suffers from hemorrhoids… I find it really difficult taking this in, but, yes, it seems to be the same guy, even though you have difficulties telling from his so called voice and lyrics… I got myself some of the ohGr-releases ’cause of being a SP-relative collector and of recommendations from Discogs users. Right now, I feel deeply embarrassed having them in my record collection. I got to get rid of them and fast. My problem in the future is that I won’t respect the SP-productions in the same way as I used to do and I used to think I’d do that forever… Hell!!! These puerile productions must be fishing for money from newcoming teens, or…? (Did You Hear That? The Music Are Bad!!! Is Somebody Here…???) Yes, Bias 37, BIAS 37, NT12 3002, V-15267 etc.

Personally I think ohGr is the best sideproject that Kevin Ogilvie has ever been involved in, and showcases the best work of Mark Walk as well. Why Mark is not a hugely popular producer is beyond me, this guy has talent just oozing out of him. "Welt" was probably the best electronic music album I heard in 2001 and remains a personal favorite to this day. You can't exactly call it industrial because it's so much funkier and creative than you'd expect for that genre, but it is of course dark, tongue in cheek, and very mechanical sounding. I am saddened there has been no musical output from this group for the last five years and truly hope they spend the time to get us some new tracks.
