Orgy came out of the heavy-metal Los Angeles scene at the end of the century and summarized in many ways the state of the art of the genre: Korn's disturbed psyche mixed with Marilyn Manson's glamour, and propelled by Nine Inch Nails's electronic-laden soundscapes and Gravity Kills' industrial beats. The surging guitars of Amir Davidson and Ryan Shuck and the psychotic vocals of Jay Gordon duel epically on Candyass (Warner, 1998), and, although the hit was a cover, the band displays its musical skills mainly in Stitches.

Melodic hooks and symphonic-like arrangements propel Vapor Transmission (Warner, 2000). Its songs espouse glam-rock but in a violent, twisted, disfigured form. The massive sonic impact of Suckerface is due to super-heavy distorted guitars, roaring distorted electronics and pounding drums, and matched by sneering vocals. Imagine Ultravox propelled by nuclear reactors and you get Opticon. Imagine David Bowie turned into a vampyr and backed by a gang of androids and you get Odyssey. Image Peter Gabriel in a biotech lab and you get Saving Faces. The more human quasi-ballad melody of Fiction and the threnody & power-ballad Eve hint at a less terrifying future.
