ORANGE GOBLIN - THE BIG BLACK - RISE ABOVE
It is entertaining how many 'space' references these Rise Above bands can use. Not only it has become a motif with Orange Goblin, but look elsewhere and check Sheavy's album title. Influenced by the sound of bands like Kyuss, Trouble, Mountain and Sabbath of course the goblins have released a cool album full of doom which nonetheless throws caution to the wind to rock out by speeding up and incorporating a little more than standard into the fault. Aided by truly Pink Floydish titles like Scorpionica, The Big Black and Cozmo Bozo (ha??), the band once called Our Haunted Kingdom has released a cool doom metal CD well worth your time and...space. Incidentally do stick around until the very end to hear some strange little recordings. - Ali "The Metallian"
