Orgy is an alternative synth rock band from Los Angeles, California. Their music has been self-described specifically as "electro-pop" or "death rock".
Orgy was formed in 1997 by vocalist Jay Gordon (de facto ex-member of Deadsy) and guitarist Ryan Shuck once of Jonathan Davis' original band Sexart, assisting in their eventual signing to KoÐ¯n's label Elementree Records.
Bassist Paige Haley (b. May 10, 1966, in Oakland, California, U.S.A.), guitarist Amir Derakh, and drummer Bobby Hewitt (b. November 13, 1969, in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.) soon completed the lineup. All were veterans of the local L.A. club scene. Derakh had previously gained some fame in the 80s metal band Rough Cutt, and Hewitt was a former member of Electric Love Hogs. Gordon and Derakh were also experienced producers. They produced Coal Chamber's self-titled CD.
They claimed the name of the band was not a sexual reference, but instead pointed to the "collage" of different styles in their music. Within six months, they were signed to Elementree Records. They had yet to play a single live show.<...
