Legal name: Kevin Ogilvie


Nivek Ogre (born Kevin Graham Ogilvie December 5, 1962) is a Canadian musician, performance artist and actor best known as a founding member of the industrial music group Skinny Puppy. Since that band featured another Kevin (Crompton, a.k.a. cEvin Key) and was produced by another Ogilvie (Dave, a.k.a. Rave), Ogre's alias was practical as well as theatrical. Since 1982, he has served as Skinny Puppy's primary lyricist and vocalist, occasionally providing instrumentation and samples. He is also a member of the electronic music group ohGr, which he founded along with longtime collaborator Mark Walk. Ogre has also made contributions to several other musical acts including Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, KMFDM, and John Carpenter (as ohGr).

Ogre has on several occasions worked as an actor in low-budget horror films. He appeared as Pavi Largo in the rock opera film Repo! The Genetic Opera, as well as Harper Alexander in the comedy-horror film entitled 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams. Ogre is reunited with Repo! director Darren Lynn Bousman for the musical short film The Devil's Carnival. In 2014 he starred in the Canadian film Queen of Blood.
