Originally formed in London under the name 'Our Haunted Kingdom' back in 1995, celebrated UK metal greats 'Orange Goblin' entered the world of heavy music as wide-eyed enthusiasts, eager to channel the fire & fury of their favourite bands. Emerging amid the exhilarating melee of the mid-'90s stoner rock & doom explosion, Orange Goblin's debut album 'Frequencies From Planet Ten' was released via underground imprint Rise Above Records in October 1997. Since then, the quartet has shared the stage with legendary acts such as Alice Cooper, Danzig & Heaven & Hell among numerous others on their rise to prominence.

A stream of critically acclaimed & widely revered studio albums also added to Orange Goblin's substantial legacy, from early classics like 'Time Travelling Blues' & 'The Big Black' through to more recent triumphs like 2012's universally praised 'A Eulogy For The Damned' & 2018's equally hailed 'The Wolf Bites Back'. Fast forward to 2021 & Orange Goblin ushered in a new era of metal chaos, signing with legendary UK metal imprint Peaceville Records, with long-standing trio Ben Ward, Joe Hoare & Chris Turner joined by new bassist Harry Armstrong for this next chapter.

The first fruits of this union manifest in new studio album 'Science, Not Fiction'; an absorbing exploration (and exploitation) of the world as seen through the three fundamental factors; Science, Spirituality, & Religion & how they determine & affect the human condition. Commandingly articulated as ever through vocalist Ben Ward, this is backed by Orange Goblin's unmistakably catchy & accomplished yet often deceptively intricate brand of Sabbath-ian Heavy Metal thunder. 'Science, Not Fiction' was recorded at Woodworm Studios UK in late 2023, with production & mixing duties carried out by Grammy winning producer Mike Exeter (most notable for his work with Black Sabbath) & mastering was conducted by the esteemed Peter Hewitt-Dutton at The Bakery in LA.
