  • The project ohGr was originally titled W.E.L.T., an acronym meaning "When Everyone Learns Truth." Ogre and Walk adopted the title ohGr when they learned that another band had taken the Welt namesake during the 5-year period in which Ogre attempted to retrieve the master tapes of W.E.L.T. from American Records.[2]
  • The video for the song "craCKer" (by director William Morrison) features stop motion animation and parodies of Eminem, Nine Inch Nails, and Marilyn Manson.[3]
