I must admit that I was in two minds about this release. On the one hand, I was very excited about another project being unleashed from the Skinny Puppy camp; but on the other, I was rather cynical and expecting a re-tread of old SP territory. Fortunately, the latter is not true! From your first glimpse of the album with its gorgeous Roman Dirge (creator of the "Lenore" comic book) artwork, you know that this is something special.
It is an *immense* album that I'm sure will be appreciated by die-hard Puppy fans like myself, but also by those enamoured with coldwave bands such as Ministry, Cubanate and KMFDM, because (and let's not be coy here) "Welt" ROCKS!
Tracks like "Minus" and "Kettle" brim with heavily distorted guitars, but yet don't ever venture towards "Process" territory: the song structures here are much more conventional than those of the Puppy swansong, much more direct and poppier with their verse-chorus-verse patterns. Yet, it's not always full steam ahead for ohGr, the album does have its mellow moments such as trippy electronic opener "Water" and "Suhleap", which sees Ogre's voice reaching previously uncharted territory. However, for me, the album's highlight is undoubtedly "Cracker": a simple pop song on the surface, but, upon closer inspection, actually oozes venom from every pore with lyrics like "You think you're evil but you're not / still sucking life from the mainstream"...oh yeah, and Ogre raps :)
To surmise, Ogre and Mark Walk have done a splendid job with "Welt". Not one track on the album sounds similar, but yet they all carry a highly individual sound that ties them all together. This is possibly the first, true, post-millenial album and looks destined to be a classic.

I originally bought this album due to that it has great artwork, and on the experience of ogre. This album is pure Industrial/EBM, it's amazing how heavy a noise you can make by using keyboards and samples. The first track fluctuates between heavy and lighter moments, a constant beat flowing throughout, making the song agressive and melodic, with a great main riff like tune.
Track two, devil, features very distorted vocals, and is generally fairly heavy , and follows on main tune and then builds around it choruses and random noise.
The most melodic track is 4, earthworm, it starts slow and builds itself up, with a slight harpsicord sound which compliments ogre's voice.
This album is quite politically minded as with most of ogre's lyrics, but it is not as shocking as his previous band, skinny puppy.
This album is good but their later release is heavier and Welt sounds a little dated, it has a vague 80's feel to it.

I have received an advance of this disc, and let me tell you, "ULTIMATELY AMAZING!" The tracks flow with great use of synth sounds and psycho-melodies! After years of struggle to release this it come to surface bearing it's teeth to smile, gnash, and chew up all "by the numbers" elektro/industrial bands! A must for ANY Skinny Puppy FAN!!!

HASH(0x88340138) out of 5 stars 1986 All Over Again - GOOOD! 21 Jan. 2005
By E. Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is in response to "LunaVamp"'s review on Sunnypsyop. Yeah yeah, I may be projecting bigtime on perceived "if it ain't 100% bone-grinding SP then it's sh*te" but here we gooooo:

Damn, this album is wonderfully BAD in that way albums we loved in 1986 were bad. It's infectious and grows on you like a fungus. It sounds like something I would have dug up from the WaxTrax! catalog while ordering the latest Front 242 and FLA. But, back then, this album would have been (possibly) taking itself seriously and I would have "hated it" (but secretly loved it) when I was 15 because I took myself too seriously. I can't bring myself to think that Ogre is taking *himself* too seriously here...I hope. If we WAS taking himself seriously...well, that's Ogre.

Dare I say it reminds me a little bit (in terms of highly self-aware, tongue-in-cheek retro electronica) of Ladytron's efforts on the dance-industrial side? It's death-lite: dancy and a tad bit whiny but with a touch of "hard" ragged buzzy synth edge, reminiscent of (ducking) "Pretty Hate Machine," that I loved to hate back in the day. Except there's no poppy "Dig It" cover. Ha Ha. This is "With Sympathy" in reverse (you know, doing the dance-pop thing AFTER the harder stuff).

I love the combo of classic synth equipment plus very, very good production. I love the electro-gothlite anthem quality of songs like "Minus" and "Solow" and the campy dance durge of "Water." "Earthworm" reminds me a bit of LPD's "Crushed Velvet Apocalypse." i think it's just the synth textures of the song. i love the farty quality of the deep base synth.

Rant: I don't have to impress anyone with how "GOTH" or "HARDCORE" I am. Been there. Done that. Have all the T-Shirts. I'll happily blast this in my car and sing at the top of my lungs, to the horror of the doom squad. If I were a DJ, I'd play "Water" or "Devil" right after "Every Day is Halloween."

Like a lot of people who have reviewed ohGr's stuff here, I've been a Skinny Puppy fan for about 20 years (17 in my case). I didn't expect it to sound like SP. I would be disappointed if it DID sound like classic SP.

HASH(0x8834018c) out of 5 stars is this industrial? I dunno. But it's very very good 23 Mar. 2001
By D. M. MATALLIN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you expect to find some Skinny Puppyish material here, don't do it. OK, Ogre is the singer here, but this is not dark hard electronics. In fact, I don't know if this is electronics at all, industrial, rock, pop... Let me explain: when you listen to this album you can notice Ohgr must have very heterogeneous musical tastes, because this 'Welt' reminds me at the same time of so diverse music: David Bowie, Skinny Puppy (especially some songs from 'The Process'), Nine Inch Nails (ok, industrial purists, don't kill me, I'm not saying Ohgr is NIN style, but it has sometimes some reminiscences, some links). This music contains guitars (not metal ones), techno rhythms, electronics (quite simple but well crafted and effective) Ogre's voice sounds as it never sounded before (except from a couple of The Process's songs ('Candle', 'Cult?)) It is melodic, agressive, distorted, depending on the effect to achieve and the song. These seem very alike at first listening, but then you start to get the differences... 'Cracker' should be a hit, really, its chorus ('It's an original') is really catchy and wonderful. There's really no bad song here, all the 11 are really wonderful. So, when you buy this work, bear in mind that this is not Skinny puppy: it's different. But it's not only ok, it's really really good. I've read that this cd should have been released 4 or 5 years ago? well, it sounds ok for 2001; A last thing: I don't know how this cd will work commercially, but I think that it could be a hit not only in alternative charts but if it was properly commercialised it could be (I know it won't, but it could be) a real hit. It does contain all the elements for it: it's not Oasis but it's catchy (and good); it's not Skinny Puppy but it's complex in its simplicity. Buy it, listen to it, relish it... I really hope Ohgr won't be a 1 cd band and continue in the future. 'Welt' is a magnificent work.

HASH(0x88a37aa4) out of 5 stars Ogre is back! 21 April 2002
By Troy R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having been a Skinny Puppy fan for over 12 years, I must say that this current project of Ogre's is refreshing and original.
Skinny Puppy's music has always required an aquired taste for the abstract and usually politically angry ideologies. Welt is still within the realm of Ogre's view of the world but in a different light.
Since Skinny Puppys demise, Ogre himself has found himself on many projects ranging from forgettable to blase'. On Welt though, he has regained not only the identity we've attached to him from Skinny Puppy, but also with a sense of ironic humor.
I've seen both Skinny Puppy and Ohgr live twice and I must say how different the energy was with Ogre considering how the two bands seem to constrast. Puppy shows were very dark, broading and eye/mind opening. The Ohgr shows had a very different mood to them and yet still contained that a sense of depth and vision. I believe that this is also reflected in the recorded music as well.
I will admit though that if you are expecting Welt to be exactly where Skinny Puppy left off, you will probably be a little disappointed. But if you are looking for something a little more structured and coherent yet with the same ingredients of activism and anger, then this might be what you've been looking for. I also think that this album is closer to the early days of Puppy (Bites and Remission) style wise if you do try and compare the two.
Either way, I believe it's a must have album for any Ogre fan that needs to keep the faith that there is still some excellent music out there despite the decadence of our current musical history.

HASH(0x88340414) out of 5 stars Re-recording of early Ogre/Al Jourgensen project 27 Mar. 2006
By D. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Acronym for When Everyone Learns the Truth, this was the second collaboration between Al Jourgensen and Ogre, with Michael Balch, in the late '80s. It was talked about more than it was created, since they both were unfortunately getting deeper into hard drugs.

They never released any material, though one song was mixed and performed in the studio haphazardly ("Noreen"). The song somehow made its way on some Skinny Puppy bootlegs, and can be heard in its rawness in that form to this day. In 1995, Al retitled and remixed the track with additional instruments to "The Fall", and included it on the FILTH PIG album.

During the mid-to-late '90s, Ogre wanted to continue the project, sans Al, with Mark Walk, and release an album under the W.E.L.T. name on American Records. Due to poor contractual agreements, the project was shelved for almost five years, and whatever material and rights the duo signed away were property of American. When the rights came back to Ogre to re-record and release material under the name in 1999, Ogre jumped at the chance. When the mixes were completed and Ogre tried to release the material under the W.E.L.T. name, he was denied since another group was already named Welt. So in late 2000/early 2001, the group was re-named ohGr, and released this album entitled WELT in February of 2001.

HASH(0x88340654) out of 5 stars ohGr - the voice of Skinny Puppy goes pop? 28 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being more of a cEvin Key fan, I was skeptical when a friend of mine suggested listening to ohGr's new album, Welt. Technically Welt was Ogre's old side-project from the Skinny Puppy days that he seemed to have abandoned years ago. With respect to the old project, Ogre named his new album "Welt" and resurrected the anticipation fans once held thanks to the help of his personal friend and Seattle resident, Mark Walk.
As a test I randomly downloaded the first ohGr song I could find. I happened to stumble on the song "Pore" and immensely enjoyed what I heard. It was refreshing to know Ogre moved away from the influence of Al Jourgensen. So while at Virgin Records on a Friday September night, I decided to buy the album. I figured all the songs on Welt were as intense as Pore, but when I got it home I discovered it was mostly industrial glam rock and pop songs... a far cry from the song "Pore" I had downloaded and even further from what Ogre *used* to do back in his Skinny Puppy days!
At first I thought I was listening to a deranged Devo album and I thought I wasted my money. My first impression was to rate this album a 2... perhaps even a 3. The lyrics seemed like nursery rhymes and the music had too much of a "Fisher Price - My First Industrial Band" sound going on... but the more I listened, the more it started to grow on me.
As written in the liner notes, Mark Walk is responsible for most of the music on the album. He's also the guy who remixed the song Smothered Hope on Skinny Puppy's Remix DysTemper, and funny enough, most of the music on Welt has that Atari-ness you'd expect from Walk. Unlike other artists of the industrial genre, the Nintendo-fx are tasteful and actually add to the listening experience. While you can definitely tell it's Ogre on vocals, I was mostly surprised by the Gary Numan influence I heard in his voice.
After a few days of listening to this album, my opinions on this album have changed completely. It's definitely a fun driving album in my opinion, and while the idea of hearing ohGr belt out a pseudo-rap is a bit ridiculous, it's also entertaining.
ohGr's Welt is fun. It's danceable. It's Ogre singing. It's Ogre a s Davie Bowie. It's Ogre as Gary Numan. It's Ogre doing the can-can, and it grows on you until you play it over and over on your stereo.
