Orange Goblin, who have created “a unique, heavy sound that lies somewhere between doom, stoner,
classic metal, 70’s inspired heavy-rock, punk, blues and everything in between” since forming in 1995, will play the headline slot on Saturday night, 23rd September.
The band’s eighth album, ‘Back From The Abyss’, which breached the Top 100 UK national album chart on release in October 2014, “Is the sound of Orange Goblin firing on all cylinders!” roars frontman Ben Ward,
continuing “From the Sabbathian, weighty-groove of ‘Sabbath Hex’, the Motörhead-styled punk snarl of ‘The Devil’s Whip’, the epic, Maiden-esque gallop of ‘Mythical Knives’, through to the apocalyptic Doom of ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’; this is the best of all of our individual influences pulled together. We have created the definitive Orange Goblin album.
Following the great, worldwide reception of ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’ and the subsequent 2 years of touring everywhere, we knew we had a lot to live up to. But we were prepared and entered the studio armed with an arsenal of killer riffs! They are all present on this album, continuing the Orange Goblin trend of never being afraid to move forward or trying something new. We worked with Jamie Dodd again as he did such a great job on the last record and I think he has even gone one better this time around! Adding Jamie’s amazing production to the outstanding performances and songwriting of the band, we have made an album we are all very proud of. Our last album gave the band new life and sent us off into the unknown. This new album sees Orange Goblin stretch ing the limits once more… ‘Back From The Abyss’ and ready to rock all over.
