hissing high hats and squelchy snares of rhythm-generator

Dave "Rave" Ogilvie is a Canadian record producer and musician. He is a producer of industrial music and has been associated with bands such as Skinny Puppy (as longtime producer and onetime member), The Birthday Massacre (as producer for their 2007 album, Walking With Strangers), Marilyn Manson, Jakalope (his own band), Killing Joke, Queensryche, Alexz Johnson, Fake Shark - Real Zombie! and Johnny Hollow.

He is frequently credited as Dave "Rave" Ogilvie, but should not be confused with Dave Desroches, who has used the stage name "Dave Rave" without an additional surname, or with Kevin Ogilvie (also known as Ogre) of Skinny Puppy. He has done remixes for Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Puscifer, and David Bowie among others.

Industrial Music

Early industrial music was known for featuring tape editing, stark percussion and loops distorted to the point where they had degraded to harsh noise. Vocals were often sporadic, early performances often consisted of taboo-breaking elements such as sado-masochistic imagery or symbolism. Industrial groups typically focus on transgressive subject matter.

The Birthday Massacre seem pretty normal now compared to this stuff, right?
