6 or­ange goblin The Fog (a eu­logy for the damned, 2012)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

Di­rected by John car­pen­ter, su­per­nat­u­ral thriller The Fog is an iconic 80s hor­ror clas­sic, and or­ange Goblin’s trib­ute is a mas­ter­class in ghoul­ish doom. “It was one of the first hor­ror movies I fell in love with and al­ways felt that it’d make a great ba­sis for a heavy metal song,” says singer Ben Ward. “When the guys played me the riffs, it bought to mind im­ages of the creep­ing fog bank in the movie and the men­ac­ing fig­ures of the ghosts hell­bent on re­venge for what had hap­pened to them 100 years be­fore. I still love the movie to this day.”

CHOICE LYRIC: “A name­less hor­ror / Eye for an eye / An an­cient lust for vengeance lies be­neath the tide / Malefic demons, here comes the night”
