Orange Goblin: A Eulogy For The Damned, album review

The kind of band that everyone like and nobody seems to have anything to says about it! Dom Lawson (Metal Hammer) stated, Orange Goblin is “consistently one of the greatest live bands the UK has produced in recent decades!”, so I couldn't say the new album of the band isn't highly expected! And after 5 years without any new album, I am not disappointed as the metal monsters are better than ever.

After the conceptual Healing through Fire album (Sanctuary records), the band keep what we like with Orange Goblin, catchy riffs, some groove, a Lemmy husky voice and cool old school solos. A Eulogy for the Damned is the most complete and solid album that the band  has ever done, with a really good diversity between the tracks; from a 70's Hard Rock with the Bishop's Wolf, to a more instrumental and athmospheric sound with a Eulogy for the Damned, and some good Doomy riffs with Death of Aquarius. The production is cleaner than previous works and some would complain about it, but the quality of the tracks, the horror psychedelics lyrics and the energy are still the same. Orange Goblin are still authentics and their music bloody rocks!

Red Tide Rising music video, with some good Jaggermeister promotion in it (Orange Goblin sponsor)!

The band will start is tour 2012 with the Desertfest and I will be there to review it.
