Ogre is an interesting band that follows the stoner mantra of mixing doom, psychedelia and hard rock, but focuses a bit more on the doom. Most of their songs are long and a little on the slow side (but often have quicker intros or breaks), and their lyrics are either very deep or plain silly, I can't really be sure.
Reading what I've written above, Ogre sounds like just an average band. Like any stoner band out there, but they are not. I don't really know how to explain it, but I really enjoy this band - above many of their more known competitors.
- Dawn of The Proto-Man - 2003
- Seven Hells - 2006
Rush's 2112, where the whole song is one cohesive thought, it seems to me a collaboration of thoughts jammed together.
So that's Ogre. Again, reading my review, the band sounds like the same old same old, but it's really not (well except for Seven Hells, that's pretty standard). Check out their debut album, Dawn of The Proto-Man, for some good groove stoner/doom, and their latest release, Plague of The Planet, if you feel adventurous.
