Electric Father- Mellow, dark, with some great sounding synth and psychedelia.

A perfect blend of Sabbath like metal that gets better with every listen. Highly recommended if you like mid 70's Sabbath or just metal / hard rock in general.

There's a lot of rumbling on the internet about these guys being Black Sabbath knockoffs and you know what? They are, but who cares? I've got some news for you...Black Sabbath is done, over, no more--which sucks, but is nonetheless the truth. So why not let some fresh new band come out and take the ball and run with it? Orchid do that and then some. At the same time, calling them Black Sabbath Part 2 isn't fair either. This album kicks so much a$$ it isn't believable--and Orchid's talent is undeniable. They not only take Sabbath's essence, but breath new life into Doom/Stoner metal and MAN-O-MAN are their songs catchy! Powerful riffs, killer vocals and huge choruses that will stick with you. Black Sabbath is my favorite band of all time, and now Orchid is my favorite new band...the circle continues.

The minute you listen to the opening track on Orchid's debut full-length album, you are instantly immersed in it. Capricorn, which clocks in at just about an hour of Sabbath-Style, psychedelic doom, is bound to take its listeners on quite the journey. There is no lack of head-bangin, thick guitar riffs, catchy vocal lines, rolling bass lines and solid drum grooves. Production of this album should be duly noted as it captures all the sounds, tones and nuances of a 70's-style album.

One might find it is best to experience this album on vinyl while chilling in front of two big ol' speakers from their stereo or grab it in a more compact form and crank this while driving at night down a dark, tree filled road trip out into the unknown.

With a debut album that contains such hard-hitting, catchy, yet sophisticated tunes, it will be memorable and exciting for their audience to experience this band's as their sound evolves through the years.

Here's a summary of the tracks with brief descriptions:

Eyes Behind the Wall- The album opens with a song containing a classic, thick-sounding guitar riff, tight rhythm section and soaring vocals. Once the vocals come in, sit back and get ready for the ride.

Capricorn-The title track kicks in with some great head banging hits before it slumps the listener into a slinky verse that is bound to make the user snap their neck back from the rhythm section's hypnotic groove.

Black Funeral- Opening with a nice warm bassline, "Black Funeral" is dark, psychedelic and mellow until about four minutes in where it slams into an ass kickin', rockin' outro.

Having purchased "Mouths of Madness", Orchid's second CD and liking it, I ordered "Capricorn", their full length debut and although I was disappointed that it took so long to get to my home via Switzerland ?!, it was worth the wait.
In this musical world full of derivatives, doom metal sprang up in the wake of the almighty Black Sabbath, with hundreds of bands achieving various degrees of success in paying homage to the original masters of dark and heavy music. Orchid are no exception, and are unabashedly Sabbath clones, but they get away with it because they happen to take the Sabbath recipe and mix it up just enough to give the listener an idea of what the first several classic Sabbath albums may have been like had a slight creative decision gone one way instead of the other.
Theo Mindell handles the vocals, and he doesn't sound much like Ozzy, which would make it too close for comfort. Rather, his is a yelp that doesn't really resemble anybody, but definitely belongs in the '70's era, where vocalists had their own voices, unlike today where so many just grunt and scream. The main weapon in Orchid is guitarist Mark Baker, who channels Tony Iommi eerily, and recalls the primitive tone of the first couple of albums and adds enough chops of his own to make the music rock.
No single track has grabbed me yet - overall, it's just a damn good throwback to the first heavy bands of the early '70's and a delight to hear.

I was first turned on to this band from their current album, "The Mouths of Madness". Reviews compared that great sound to this album so I had to track it down until I finally found one in Belgium of all places. I'm so glad I did. If you like the sound of early Black Sabbath, you will like this band.

This is one of my favorite albums by far top 10 on my list also making Orchid my new favorite band. Their sound is pure Black Sabbath Doom done perfectly. Theo the singer sounds just like Ozzy and when they perform live Theo head bangs just like Ozzy. They have a new album coming out in 2013 called The Mouths of Madness, Can't wait to hear what more amazing music they make

I just discovered these guys about a week ago,and I've been HOOKED ever since.Like everyone else is saying,YES-it is like Sabbath,which is a GREAT thing! From beginning to end,this album is solid.They've managed to capture that perfect vintage/Sabbath sound,and the vocalist sounds like a cross between Ozzy-Dio-Ian Gillian.There will be times where you say to yourself while listening, "IS this a Sabbath re-make?..the lyrics even sound kind of like.." Just check out the names of the songs and you'll see what I mean.Its not very often when listening to an album, that I actually get excited to see what the next song is like.Now I'm just waiting to see these guys live some day! My current favorite album by far (besides the new Witchcraft) But,GET THIS ALBUM IF YOU LOVE SABBATH,YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!! \m/
