Orange Goblin, ‘The Devil’s Whip’ – Song Premiere
Like your heavy metal raw and dirty? You’re gonna dig this. Loudwire has the exclusive North American premiere of ‘The Devil’s Whip’ from the British metallers of Orange Goblin.
Orange Goblin are on the cusp of celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band, but first, the London-based act will release its eighth studio album, ‘Back From the Abyss,’ which will see an Oct. 7 release.
‘The Devil’s Whip’ is the record’s first cut to see the light of day. The track is a full-speed-ahead rocker very much in the vein of fellow British rockers Motorhead. Though ‘The Devil’s Whip’ feels like somewhat of a throwback, the song also succeeds in being fresh and showcasing a ton of character.
“We are very proud to present our new song ‘The Devil’s Whip,’ the first single to be lifted from the brand new Orange Goblin album ‘Back From The Abyss,’” says frontman Ben Ward. “This song is a real old-school banger; stuffed full of riffs, sleaze, filth and speed … just like the best metal should be! It’s Motorhead-style, outlaw-biker rock in all it’s glory, destined to get heads banging, fists pumping, drinks flowing and asses shaking! If you don’t find yourself breaking the speed limit to this song, desperate to find the roughest bar in town, starting a fight and spending the night in a cell, then you are quite clearly already dead! Let’s ride, let loose, let’s rip … that’s right, you can’t escape The Devil’s Whip!”
