Devils In My Details is Ogre's third solo disc and most personal and conceptual work to date in his 25-year career. The 11-track disc was recorded with longtime creative foil Mark Walk (Ruby) and is an immersive experience intended to emulate the feel of such 70's progressive rock classics as The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway from Genesis and Tales of Mystery and Imagination by The Alan Parsons Project -- both of which were major influences on Ogre and Walk while growing up. I'm grateful to be able to make a record like this, said Ogre. If we were in any other situation, the standard model is to write two hit singles and fill in the holes as best you can. ThatÕs the mode a lot of musicians are in right now. WeÕre trying to do things from the heart, regardless of what the commerce end of music dictates.
