London, England’s heavy rock wizard Orange Goblin returns after a painful absence with A Eulogy for the Damned. The band’s sonic trajectory over the past fifteen years has seen it shift from a purveyor of hallucinogenic fuzz to the greasy, groovy stoner warrior it is today. On its latest release, Orange Goblin digs even further into the morass of dirty blues and unaffected shit-kicker metal.
Organge Goblin hail from the UK and have been around since 1995. They have their roots in stoner metal, but have evolved over time, incorporating aspects from other influences and styles, including '70s hard rock, doom metal and even punk sensibilities. They've maintained a very steady line-up, with only one major change ? guitarist Pete O'Malley left the band in 2004 to focus on visual art and was replaced by Joe Hoare.
