OGRE a Hardcore band from Northern New Jersey. Ogre was founded in late 1997 early 1998 as a result of our bands breaking up or taking breaks. With members from Gomez's Childhood, Rule Of Thumb and Whiplash. There sound was developed through the love of music and beer!
One of the Songs that got me loving this band is "Where's My Beer" it is more like a theme song for everyone that has gone to a party and just can't seem to find there beer, other songs like 1983 that really got me thinking about what can I do to help out the local music scene, it talks about brotherhood gone wrong and I wanted to make it right, the way it was meant to be. I really just cant pick one song over the other of what I love more but songs like "Grease The Pig", (JB says it's about his mom) "7 Times Before" "Free Trade" all just make you wanna get up and mosh around the room. Ogre is a inspiration to me and a hell of a killer band
The band is made up of the lead singer and my Brother in Metal JB aka "The Ogre" who comes alive on the stage with his in your face style, and powerful vocals, and his leave it all on stage attitude, he just keeps you hungry for more.....Ronnie Bourgeais a master on guitar, that was born to play on stage....Jimmy P on Bass (Remember you do not know a band unless you know the bass player) Jimmy brings to the stage more then just a bass he brings his passion for music......On Drums you have the hard hitting sticks up your ass mad man Robert Kanaby the perfect fit, any band would be lucky to have this guy behind the kit.....Ogre just added there second guitarist Billy Genese of Gothic Slam you know this guy is all business and a great addition to a powerful band that should be more then just a local band.
