Potent, classic doom metal from the northeastern corner of the United States! On Thrice as Strong, Portland, Maine trio Ogre deliver a timehonored display of old-school doom with '70s rock elements that scale epic heights and heavy lows. Tracked with Rowan Bishop at Garage Mahal Recording in Westbrook, Maine, Thrice as Strong is a collection of timehonored doom mixed with classic metal, roping in obscure '70s rock to top it all off. The Thrice as Strong album title comes from their namesake song "Ogre," which is found on their Dawn of the Proto-Man debut. Given that the song is written about the last living Neanderthal, Broadbent zeroed in on the line "thrice as strong" and proposed it as the title as a summation of the way Ogre has endured for the past 20 years. Furthermore, it hits upon the fact that, according to Markonish, "if it's not a trio, then it's not Ogre at all!"
