Portland Maine`s OGRE is pleased to announce that Iron Kodex Records (Germany) will be releasing all three OGRE albums on vinyl in 2009. OGRE debut Dawn of the Proto-Man and follow-up Seven Hells both will be 2-LP gatefold releases, with an album side`s worth of bonus tracks on each. The vinyl version of 2008`s Plague of the Planet (recently reissued on CD by Shadow Kingdom Records) will feature expanded deluxe artwork by drummer Will Broadbent. In addition, Iron Kodex will release a limited edition "die hard" box set, containing all three albums and additional goodies. Release for all three records and the box set is slated for late summer 2009.
2009 also marks the tenth anniversary of OGRE. To celebrate this milestone, the band will be planning a slew of events, including a special anniversary show in its hometown of Portland, an appearance at the Born Too Late festival in August, and a week-long tour with Baltimore doom legends Revelation also in August.
