04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong

Orange Goblin will enter a recording studio in London at the end of May 2009 to record what will be their 7th studio album and first for new label Candlelight. Production on this one will be handled by Sanford Parker who has recently produced albums by the likes of Nachtmystium, Lair Of The Minotaur, Pelican, Rwake, Unearthly Trance, Venemous Concept, Minsk, Buried At Sea, and more.
Orange Goblin vocalist Ben Ward said "We are excited at the prospect of working with Sanford, we are all big fans of his work with bands like Pelican, Nachtmystium, and Lair Of The Minotaur, and I'm sure he will add a new element to what we do in Orange Goblin. It's inspiring to work with someone new that 'gets' exactly what we are about and Sanford's enthusiasm to work with us made him an obvious choice!"
Orange Goblin are very proud to announce a new era for the band with the signing to world renowned metal label, Candlelight Records.
Commented vocalist/guitarist Ben Ward: "The number of vastly successful bands on the Candlelight roster is testament to the quality and the hard work that everyone involved in the label has shown us and we are very excited about settling down in a new home after the label problems we have encountered in the past few years. It's an honour to be on such an esteemed label alongside bands that have inspired us since the bands inception. I believe that with the Candlelight team behind Orange Goblin we can concentrate on writing the best material of our career and continue to tour as much as possible, hopefully reaching parts of the world that Orange Goblin is yet to plunder! We have already started writing new material for a release in 2009 and OG fans, in fact metal fans in general, are gonna love how the new stuff is sounding. It's gonna be a hugh combination of Sabbath-inspired doom, filthy biker blues and more of the familiar booze-ridden Goblin groove."
