with Lead Into Gold and Omniflux
From the Promoter
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.
LEAD INTO GOLD
After many collaborations with Al Jourgensen (and playing bass in Ministry,) Paul Barker embarked on his own solo project- Lead into Gold which derives its name from the mystical practice of alchemy.
Omniflux takes your hand and pulls you deep into the midnight sea. There, with ceaseless flux, she'll bewitch you like a lone, pale jellyfish bleeding light in the bosom of boundless blue. She will caress you with wintry frost and fever. She will make you love her and when you do, she will sting you raw, high and low.
“Omniflux is a hazy, dreamy visit to the place where wild things roam. It’s bewitching and beautiful and completely hypnotic.” –Entertainment Weekly
“Omniflux explores the intersection of the familiar and the alien through sweeping, cinematic electronic music…She contorts her voice and utilizes brilliant arrangements to create something stunning and provocative.” –Rookie magazine
