Brave Words

Interview with Ben

'We spent a lot of our career being very self-deprecating and taking the piss out of ourselves. But when you get this far into your career, and achieved the sort of things we have, we’ve realized we’re here for a reason; we’re a fucking good band! We wanted to make that statement come across with this record.”

Overdrive Magazine

The Wolf Bites Back - Track by Track Guide

'...23 years of smashing out an endless stream of riffs has not only given Orange Goblin an air of authority over their lyrical and musical craft, but has allowed them to comfortably straddle a few genres as they see fit, rather than being pidgeonholed in the stoner den.'

Echoes & Dust

The Wolf Bites Back - Review

 ' is the sound of a band that have only continued to learn from their own experiences and to strengthen as musicians and songwriters. Orange Goblin 2012 – 2018 is a force that will undoubtedly stand the test of time and solidifies their legacy as one of the countries premier heavy metal acts. Older, wiser and stronger, the wolf bites back again and it’s not showing any signs of losing its appetite any time soon.'

Maximum Volume

The Wolf Bites Back - Review

'The best thing about it though, is that for all its differences, it still sounds like Orange Goblin, still sounds like the band they always were, and the progression is entirely natural. This wolf though, doesn’t run with the pack, but then Orange Goblin never ever did.'


The Wolf Bites Back - Track by Track Breakdown...

'The Wolf Bites Back is everything that Orange Goblin should be: aggressive, raw, bluesy, ballsy, and still heavy as hell.'
