Orange Goblin

Orange Goblin
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2014 / 2019






Orange Goblin formed in London in 1995 and to date they have released nine studio albums. Their music is a mix of stoner and doom metal with punk accents and several other influences such as blues rock thrown. They’ve built an enviable live reputation over the years and are considered by many to be something of a cult band. This is largely owed to the authenticity that oozes out of every pore in spite of the occasional lyrical antics. Follow-up ‘Back from the Abyss’ had big shoes to fill but did so effortlessly with a collection of tracks that wears the band’s love of Sabbath and Motörhead on its mud-stained sleeve but with more than enough originality to put their own spin on their musical heritage. Their latest slab of groove-laden doom metal, The Wolf Bites Back’ (2018), is yet another great addition to their anthology. Their only previous GMM show in 2014 had the Metal Dome bursting at the seams. Orange Goblin are masters at their game; doom and stoner fans will gobble this up! (#GMM19)
