I saw these guys support Monster Magnet in London recently. It was the first time that a support act 1) Didn't suck, and 2) Commanded respect from the audience. Take everything that you love from Led Zepp, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Motorhead; melt them down in a couldron. Add a pinch of Hendrix and you've got Orange Goblin. A truly refreshing audio experience..... Enjoy!

This is my first and favourite Orange Goblin album. I've heard all their stuff now, but this one I found accidentally while looking for recordings by one of my most-loved bands (Big Black). While it bears almost no stylistic comparison to Albini's legendary outfit, it shares some qualities in so far as it's heavy, intelligent, exhilirating and best played very very loud. It's a blinder from beginning to end, but three tracks in particular (Quincy, Effalunt and Scorpionica) are among the greatest ROCK tracks of all time. This is a band who care about their fans, and they demonstrate this in the best way possible, by consistently producing great albums and great live shows.

album number three by the goblin is one that perhaps isnt as instant as the previous two,this is an album that is more scuzzier,fuzzier,maybe heavier,its an album that isnt as spacey as before but the fact remains that this is still a barn storming album,the album still features wha-wha pedals but drops the keyboard and electric organ,all of this designed to give the album a bluesier ,rockier feel perhaps and with that in mind a few listens is needed to appreciate this beast.

The album in some ways appears to be under produced to give it a raw,minimal sound,but that isnt a complaint,in fact for the sound of the album it works,the album is pacey,smashed down with glorious riffs and is more direct than previous works.

The albums ten tracks show a band with attitude in mind and is certainly worth all your time if you count bands like viking skull and raging speedhorn as some of your current faves then this could be the perfect orange goblin album to get.

Along with Kyuss, Sleep and Monster Magnet etc in the halls of stoner rock, this is another one of the essentials. It is by far the best Orange Goblin album and should be the first to get by them. It has a wide appeal that can be apreciated by any heavy metal and hard rock fans, what ever they are into, so go ahead and buy this immediately!

While "The Big Black" hardly re-invents the wheel in the realm of stoner rock, it is a sophisticated and undoubtedly fun blast, and has rightly become one of the most revered albums in the genre in recent years. It is something of a transition album for the band, echoing the spacey soundscapes of their early works, and moving towards the no-nonsense, more "metal" approach of later and more recent works (this year's release "Healing Through Fire" is a perfect example of this sound). For me, this makes it the most interesting and multi-faceted of their albums.

Of course all good stoner rock bands can execute big Sabbathian riffs, and Orange Goblin give perfect example to this, but what separates the best of the genre from the run-of-the-mill is song writing. Orange Goblin has an excellent understanding of composition and how to manipulate dynamics, shown instantly by the fine opener "Scorpionica". The song showcases the band's ability to create adrenaline-pumping gallops full of booming riffs, slick wah-pedal guitar solos and roaring John Garcia-esque vocals. It also slips into a grooving quieter middle section, slowing the tempo down and acting as a perfect contrast to the thick fuzzy heavy sections. Only the best of the stoner rock genre implement such refined writing. This approach is executed numerous times throughout, creating epic anthems such as "Hot Magic Red Planet", "King of Hornets" and the doom-laden groove of the title track, which instantly reminds me of heyday Electric Wizard.

Special mention has to go to the song "Cozmo Bozo" - for all massive Kyuss fans out there...this is about as good as it gets. This song sounds remarkably like a lost track from "Welcome To Sky Valley", fusing those sumptuous grooves, thick tones, raspy vocals and space-rock effects.

If you are a fan of things tongue-in-cheek and slighly left of the path Orange Goblin may be the group you have been looking for. Obviously influenced by such early skate punk projects like The Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag, this band are keeping the spirit alive. Having seen them live alongside Nebula I can safely say this album does not do the live act justice. However, in favour of trying something new they still rock very hard and would happily fit into anyones CD/Vinyl selection alongside the likes of Kyuss, Fu-Manchu, Black Sabbath and Monster Magnet. Before checking this I would first check some of their other titles. Enjoy...respect the rock!
