The band's members have released a few notable and significant releases since Orthrelm's inception, with projects such as Crom-Tech and Barr's solo side-project Octis. For example, their 2002 release Asristir Vieldriox is 13 minutes long with a total of 99 songs, each one averaging between 5 and 15 seconds in length. In contrast, the OV album features a single, 45-minute track based on extremely intense repetition, marrying the speed of grindcore and the repetition of Terry Riley's brand of minimalism. The band were chosen by Animal Collective to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in May 2011.
