Back From The Abyss is the eighth studio album by British metal band Orange Goblin, released in October 2014 by Candlelight Records.

ORANGE GOBLIN have inarguably been one of the best of the doom-stoner sect. Back From The Abyss, is everything ORANGE GOBLIN fans are craving: a bit of BLACK SABBATH, a bit of MOTÖRHEAD and a whole lotta cool. ORANGE GOBLIN carries a sense of authenticity that seldom gets praised outside their own circle.

Sabbath Hex is merely a warm-up for how good Back From The Abyss is.  It’s a tribute to all that BLACK SABBATH is and has been to the metal scene, one that continues to churn acolyte after acolyte over the years. Accordingly, ORANGE GOBLIN rolls out this cut with every lick of passion they have inside them, flexing a BLACK SABBATH-spirited shit-kicker with a little American mud boogie flung from their treads. Ben Ward's gravelly pipes and his shared riff procession alongside Joe Hoare are set at amp's strain and filled out beauteously by Martyn Millard's unstinting bass.

The Devil's Whip is as MOTÖRHEAD as MOTÖRHEAD gets themselves, with a hair of VENOM lurking beneath the fast-riding blues mosher. When the mid-tempo rock jive of Demon Blues follows ORANGE GOBLIN pounds it out with grit.

Heavy Lies The Crown is a great blues rock number with a Jimi Hendrix nod twinkling through the first half of the intro and later along the ride. Even when Ben Ward drills his throaty vocals, there's a murky nod to Hendrix as ORANGE GOBLIN takes a sonic ride into Valhalla, mincing the blues into their metallic Viking romp.

Into The Arms Of Morpheus takes a slower SABBATH-licked doom nod on the heels of Martyn Millard's chunky bass lead, then follows a long, blaring jam guided by Chris Turner's shuffle-step groove.

A pair of instrumentals Titan and The Shadow Over Innsmouth bookend the blaring Blood Of Them, which could as easily been an opener as the setup to close.

ORANGE GOBLIN delivers that rare album where even 54 minutes doesn't seem like enough. Back From The Abyss gives and gives some more, but when it's this fun, an encore seems trite.

This double LP on limited clear and black splatter 180 gram heavyweight vinyl is pressed in Europe on the Back On Black label.
