ORANGE GOBLIN have just released their second video in promotion of their seventh album ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’, released in February 2012 on Candlelight Records. The clip is said to “deliver a heaping helping of deep-fried riffola, dancing girls and kaleidoscope eyes” according to Scion AV where ‘Acid Trial’, directed by Tom J Cronin, has premiered. Their video for ‘Red Tide Rising’ is available for your viewing pleasure below the text. ORANGE GOBLIN's first recording issued through Candlelight Records was recorded at The Animal Farm studio in South London, UK, produced and engineered by Jamie Dodd, and mastered by two-time Grammy-nominated engineer Andy Jackson at Tube Mastering. ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’ can be enjoyed in its sweet entirety here (BandCamp) or via player available below, courtesy the label. Furthermore, the band has just announced Rise Above Records will release the first two ORANGE GOBLIN albums, ‘Frequencies From Planet Ten’ and ‘Time Travelling Blues’, on vinyl on July 23rd, 2012. Both records come with “awesome gatefold sleeves featuring killer artwork, a choice of coloured vinyl and a bonus 7” and 10” respectively” therefore pre-order now!
“ ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’ is a pretty diverse set - maybe the most diverse of ORANGE GOBLIN's oeuvre - and while that hardly means they’ve turned into FAITH NO MORE, it does explain why lucky LP number seven arguably betters everything released by the group over the previous decade. Talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat!” [liked what he heard Eduardo Rivadavia, AllMusic – read the rest here while you listen to the album:]
ORANGE GOBLIN: A Eulogy For The Damned
Formed in 1995 under the name “Our Haunted Kingdom”, ORANGE GOBLIN released a 7” split with ELECTRIC WIZARD in 1997 (as OHK), before adopting their current name. As ORANGE GOBLIN, bassist Martyn Millard, singer Ben Ward, guitarists Joe Horri and Pete O'Malley and drummer Chris Turner released their LOTR-inspired debut full-length, ‘Frequencies From Planet Ten’, through Rise Above Records in 1997, followed by ‘Time Traveling Blues’ in 1999. In 2000, ORANGE GOBLIN finally won over those stubborn music critics with their third album ‘The Big Black’. On 2002's Scott Reeder-produced ‘Coup de Grace’, the group introduced punk as well as doom metal influences to their otherwise post-stoner rock. As a quartet - without second guitar player Pete O'Malley - ORANGE GOBLIN recorded ‘Thieving From The House Of God’ (2004), followed by 2007's ‘Healing Through Fire’ (Sanctuary Records), which marked the band's departure from their longtime label, Rise Above Records. In 2011, Metal Blade Records re-mastered and repackaged (with added bonus tracks) the band's first five albums.
