Friday night on October 4, 2013 one of the UKs best kept secrets came to the Catalyst Club in Santa Cruz CA. Orange Goblin, an underground metal band whom cares more about rocking out and partying then the typical so called ‘dark’ themes most people expect from metal.
Working with a new album in the form of ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’ Orange Goblin came through Santa Cruz and left the Catalyst soaked in sweat and booze. Starting the night off with Scorpionica from their Big Black Album and then roaring right into The Filthy and The Few off their new album. Like the start of a tornado, the pit at the Catalyst grew steadily into a massive cyclone while Orange Goblin blasted them with heavy riffs and pulverizing drums. Playing for nearly 90 minutes touching on all their past hits and throwing down some new favorites The mighty Goblin turned this small surf town inside out.
With sludgy grooves and rocking guitars Orange Goblin has captured the minds of rock and metal fans for nearly two decades. If Motorhead were still underground, they would sound like OG.
