"Orange Goblin has been the quintessential underground band of an underground genre...heavy as a pod of whales, complete with their extra bluesy Black Sabbath riffs, a hard-groovin' ZZ Top aesthetic, and lyrics, themes, and album art seemingly inspired by acid, Aldous Huxley, and biker magazines" - Portland Mercury

"Orange Goblin albums have a tendency to hit like an abrupt and heavy ocean wave. Raw energy with a sense of driving urgency tear out from the silence and then only let up for the short break between tracks. If that wasn’t true before this year’s new album The Wolf Bites Back, it’s certainly true now. Twenty-four years on, these long-carrying bearers of the proud English tradition started by Black Sabbath are still chugging out their version of metal. Invigorated by a resurgence in fan support over the past few years of touring, the band continues to claw out their place in a brave new world." - Ghettoblaster
