Maggot Breeder

Maggot Breeder

Real Name:
Reuel Ordonez
Maggot Breeder is the long term ongoing musical project of Reuel Ordonez, filipino by birth and now residing in Montreal, Quebec. Utilizing the guitar as the primary sound source, Maggot Breeder creates a dark yet oddly serene soundscape which invokes images of war, conflict, pain, despair and suffering. Reuel Ordonez's guitar playing is not confined to one style. With his versatility, Ordonez's playing can be best described as a collaboration of heavy metal, psychedelia, experimental and the rock worlds.

Maggot Breeder is inspired by the history and imagery of the Great War of 1914-1918, the great imperialist war which accelerated modernization and shaped the 20th century. The results of this tumultuous period resonates to this day in terms of technology, culture, politics and global conflict. Founded in 1984 Maggot Breeder is considered to be one of Montréal’s more ingenious noise ensembles. While still composing music with Maggot Breeder Ordonez joined local hardcore band Rhododendron in 1991. After Rhododendron dismantled and still keeping with his Maggot Breeder, Ordonez joined local heavy hitters, Legumo in 1997. This band stayed strong until he formed local instrumental doom/sludge trio Squalor; this being one of Ordonez's more successful endeavours along with Maggot Breeder. One needs not to be convinced after hearing Maggot Breeder to know the Ordonez is not an amateur. He is one of the key musicians of our time. With Squalor and Maggot Breeder, Ordonez is at his element.
