Heavy metal rockers that compose Orange Goblin are Martyn Millard (bass), Ben Ward (vocals), Joe Hoari (guitar), Pete O'Mally(guitar), andChris Turner (drums), and together these fine bandmates compose the harsh doom rock sounds similar to the likesof Mammoth Volume,Clawfinger, and Kyuss. Originally named Our Haunted Kingdom, Orange Goblin originated in 1995 and undertheir previous moniker they caughtthe attention of Rise Above Records. They released the limited edition single "The AquaticFanatic" with fellow hard rockers Electric Wizard, butunder their current name the band contributed "Saruman's Wish" to thesecond volume of the metal compilation Dark Passages. By 1997,Orange Goblin had performed all across Europe at variousfestivals and club tours and a debut full-length was about due. Frequencies FromPlanet Ten was issued that fall, followed byextensive touring. Two years later, the uneven Time Travelling Blues found them at a confusedpoint, unsure of whether or notto stay in the stoner metal scene or travel into hard rock. The brutal Big Black showed them returning to thestoner rockheaviness and space rock weirdness that had made their first album such a hit, but with a more confident grasp of songwritingandextended jams. But 2002's Coup de Grace was the final nail in the stoner rock coffin for the band, as they chose to continuein the hard rockvein they had only experimented with before. « hide
