Talk about Orange Goblin is talk about of one of the most enduring British heavy metal institutions that has flourish during the past 15 years. This year the band is coming back with their 7th studio record A Eulogy For The Damned, a total trip down to the core of stoner rock, classic rock and heavy metal. The album opens with Red Tide Rising one of the heaviest tracks on the record right next to Acid Trial and Death Of Aquarius. I found amusement on tracks like The Filthy And The Few and Bishop’s Wolf that had some elements of British punk, a genre that ruled the country on the late 60’s and early 70’s.
A Eulogy For The Damned is a fun and enjoyable album, each song has its own character, but together they make the personality of this album, an example that I found out curious is, how the title track of the album A Eulogy For The Damned, sounds like it was out of a Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez movie soundtrack, and songs like The Fog have this total Sabbath aura lurking all over the track. Indeed if you are looking for an enjoyable album that just relax you, Orange Goblin have exactly what you are looking for, if your lucky enough to be in the U.K this spring the boys will be on the road touring, otherwise here in America we might have to wait until next year perhaps.
