Horgh (7 May 1971, born Reidar Horghagen in Bergen,[1] Norway) is a Norwegian drummer, currently playing for Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy. He is also the current drummer for Norwegian black metal band Immortal.

Horgh joined Immortal in 1996, bringing stability after a series of short-lived drummers. His style incorporates more straightforward metal techniques than his predecessors Abbath and Armagedda, and he has become known for his strong foot technique, displaying the ability to play very fast and maintain precise double bass drum patterns for a long period of time.[2] The liner notes of his first Immortal album, Blizzard Beasts, dedicate the album to him.[3]

In 2004 he joined Hypocrisy,[4] spending over a decade playing with both bands concurrently.
