Recorded at Orgone Studios in rural Bedfordshire with esteemed underground guru Jaime ‘Gomez’ Arellano (Ghost, Grave Pleasures, Paradise Lost, Cathedral) at the controls, the new opus comes adorned with a raw but crystalline sound that has maximised Orange Goblin’s extraordinary eight-legged chemistry.
Ben states, “Gomez has a very new, custom built studio in a really remote part of the English countryside so there are zero distractions and we were totally focused on the job at hand. We gave ourselves plenty of time so the vibe was relaxed and almost experimental. We were trying out new sounds and working with equipment and instruments that we may not have considered in the past. Gomez was like a fifth member of the band, constantly making useful suggestions. I think that the band’s playing and songwriting on this album are the best they’ve ever been. It’s a huge wall of sound and Gomez has recorded and mixed it perfectly.”
