"'Republic' is the intro track of the album. Organ introduces a rhythmic/percussive motif which continues throughout, ending in a frenzied conclusion as the track draws to an end.

Orange Goblin To Release New Album This June

Orange Goblin have wrapped up recording their ninth full-length release “The Wolf Bites Back” at Orgone Studios in Bedfordshire, England with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Paradise Lost) behind the boards.

Comments frontman Ben Ward :

“We are very excited about this new album. ‘The Wolf Bites Back‘ is our strongest and most diverse collection of songs to date, it’s certainly a lot darker both musically and lyrically.

It is still definitely a distinct Orange Goblin album but we have incorporated a lot more variation on this record and there are hints of Can, Captain Beyond, Wishbone Ash and The Stooges nestling amongst the obvious Sabbath and Motörhead influences. Lyrically I have explored everything from alien serial killers to zombie biker gangs, Buddhist warriors through to descendants of the Salem witches!”

“There was definitely a concerted effort to make sure all the songs could work in a live environment which gives the album a more raw, stripped back feel – something that I feel has been lacking from good rock and metal in recent years.

Working with Jaime Gomez Arellano was really productive and a great experience, especially going back to tracking stuff to tape. I feel that he got the best out of all of us as musicians and songwriters and that really comes across in the songs, there is an air of confidence and experience. It was also a real honour for us to have Phil Campbell of Motörhead lending his hand to a couple of solos on there too!”
