In celebration of the official North American release of Back From The Abyss, the newest studio recording from UK stoner metal titans, ORANGE GOBLIN, today Revolver Magazine is hosting an exclusive track-by-track breakdown of the record as told by vocalist Ben Ward.
Check it out at THIS LOCATION.
The road-raging, Back From The Abyss reunites ORANGE GOBLIN with Jamie Dodd, who served as producer on the band’s uber successful A Eulogy For The Damned full-length released in 2012.In an 8/10 score of Back From The Abyss, Decibel notes of the band’s continual growth, “PeggingOG as simply a ‘stoner’ or ‘doom’ band these days is a little shortsighted. They range from epic, classic-ish metal (‘Heavy Lies The Crown’) to Motörhead-inspired thunderbolts (‘The Devil’s Whip’) while maintaining a soulful bluesy vibe wherever they travel musically,” Ghost Cult crowns the record, “a must listen stoner album for the year,” furthering that, “Back From The Abyss keeps the power in your hands and a drink to your lips. As commanding as the stories they tell, any album of theirs could be a gateway drug into their world,” while About.com commends, “another fine slab of metal sludge that oozes into your pores and latches onto your metal soul.”
