In a world gone mad, there are few certainties to cling to. But one thing remains forever unwavering and true: Orange fucking Goblin. Diehard exponents of the noble art of heavy metal since 1995, the London-based quartet have spent the last two decades steadily but surely establishing themselves as one of the UK's most loved and respected bands.
Emerging from the stoner rock explosion of the mid ‘90s, the band led the way for that scene on British shores, kicking off with classic debut Frequencies From Planet Ten in 1997 and continuing with a steady stream of critically acclaimed albums that boldly blurred the lines between stoner, doom, black, crust and southern rock, while always fervently saluting the old school heavy metal flag and the sacred Sabbathian code.
Orange Goblin's fifth full-length record, Thieving from the House of God (2004) found the group working as a quartet following the departure of second guitarist Pete O'Malley and churning out fast and groovy hard rock highlighted by barnburners like "Round Up The Horses" and "Crown Of Locusts" plus a killer cover of ZZ Top's "Just Got Paid." Single LP in gatefold sleeve with insert.
