With Orange Goblin GMM has snared the figureheads of the British stoner metal scene. Fronted by the charismatic Ben Ward, this London quartet formed in 1995 and are one of the genre’s most consistently successful acts. In their early years they put out a number of heavy hitters that combined gravelly stoner stomps with doom and space metal accents. After the turn of the millennium they started to incorporate more classic hard rock and even punk influences into their music. ‘A Eulogy for the Damned’ (2012) is a fine example and their live recording ‘A Eulogy for the Fans: Orange Goblin Live 2012’ is the perfect introduction to what they sound like live. Following the release of their most recent groove-laden doom slab ‘The Wolf Bites Back’ (2018), bassist and co-founder Martyn Millard departed amicably from the band and was replaced by Harry Armstrong (formerly of Decomposed, Hangnail, Earls of Mars, End of Level Boss). #GMM23
