Orgy @ Whisky A Go Go 1/29

Orgy took elements from the rising nu metal scene of the late 90s and dunked it into a vat of electronic undertones to create a truly unique, industrial metal sound that continues to sludge to this day. Having established themselves as one of the premier pioneers of death pop, they’re back from hiatus and ready to remind everyone why they were so beloved in the first place. Dabbling in glam rock was a much needed crystallized counter-culture to the macho-abrasive sensibility at the time, and through blazing synthesizers, pounding rhythms and liquid metal vocals, they were able to fit in with contemporaries despite their natural ability to stand out. The band’s unmistakable mind-altering guitars fused with digitized beats got the fans interested in them while the visually appealing, hallucinogenic live shows kept them coming back for more. Orgy truly shines on the stage, and there’s no doubt violet rays will be coming down in Hollywood this Friday.
