[THE GOBLINS WILL GET YOU] Since the first time I saw Clutch live in 1994, I’ve never grasped the reverence people hold for Neil Fallon’s supposedly poetic lyrics or his long-running groove-metal band. But I do have a respect for the Clutch work ethic, and its recent move to take charge and start its own label after going through decades of indie and major label cycles. Newest album Earth Rocker sheds most traces of the jam-band ethos, focusing on shorter and harder-hitting tunes. Unfortunately, the vocals still sound like a hybrid of Phil Anselmo and Scooby-Doo. But this show stands on the strength of main support act Orange Goblin. The British biker-stoner-punk-metal group kicks ass relentlessly on stage, and 2011 album A Eulogy For the Damned sits the group rightfully alongside contemporaries such as High on Fire.
