When I sat down to do a Listening report last night, I started

thinking, "Who am I kidding?". I am never going to push

myself to listen to 15 Jazz CD's in a week and a half, so I

am going to do the remainder of my listening reports on

music that I like to listen to. You may think it defeats the

purpose of listening reports, but that's not true. What these

guys play may sound like heavily distorted noise, and too

much yelling played at way too high of volumes to the

But now, Orgy made the song HUGE. It is an

amazing song. Orgy has a very unique sound. They

are sort of an Electro-Punk band. They have some

really hardcore guitar riffs, but they also got some

sweet Synth tracks and stuff like that. The best thing

about them, though, has got to be their Vocal

Distortions. They got this cool echo-y noise added

to their voice. Orgy also performs Dissention and


The next group is Limp Bizkit. These guys
