ORANGE GOBLIN – ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’: This Album Is Mandatory Metal, My Metal Brethren


ORANGE GOBLIN – They’re back. Orange Goblin. On February 14, 2012, the seventh studio album from one of Britain’s finest Metal bands of the 20th and 21st Centuries will be released on Candlelight Records. Their new album A Eulogy For The Damned is such an amazing listen from front to back, that I’ve had to throw cold water on my face to make certain I’m not imagining it all. Seriously. From the album’s rip-it-up opener of Red Tide Rising, to the closer A Eulogy To The Damned, there is absolutely not one boring micro-second to hear on this album.

Is this new Orange Goblin album perfect? Damn it’s near close to Metal perfection as you can get. I cannot get enough of what I’m hearing on A Eulogy For The Damned. Orange Goblin reveals their inner linings of Stoner meets Classic Hard Rock vibes, courtesy of countless riffs and guitar parts, with bass and drums resonating all great things about exhilarating rhythm and grooves… and this is still Metal. Orange Goblin takes their Metal sound to a heightened level of awe, on such tracks as Stand For Something and Save Me From Myself, with a combination of retrospective Rockin’ thunder and unbridled Hard and Heavy relevance.

A Eulogy For The Damned epitomizes just how a Metal album can come across and sound, when a band doesn’t over-indulge in their own creativity or skills. This is a Metal album, only it’s Metal that doesn’t trip over its own feet. Even repetition on the closing track A Eulogy To The Damned is music genius within this song’s structure. I honestly found myself disappointed that this album has ten songs. Then again, these ten songs make the listening experience so befittingly special. Maybe other bands can learn a lesson here from Orange Goblin and keep their filler tracks where they belong… in a box labeled “work in progress”.

The vocals of Ben Ward and total musicianship of this band roars with authority, as an undeniable sound and feel of keeping it real is a non-stop listening experience on this album. If it’s your goal to buy amazing Metal in 2012, you can kick-start this goal into reality by buying A Eulogy For The Damned. Of course Orange Goblin fans and Metal fans will dive right into this new album, yet Stoner, Hard Rock and even Classic Rock fans are certain to find numerous slices of A Eulogy For The Damned quite damn appealing.
