Obsessing 7 with Orange Goblin - Hot Magic, Red Planet

Here's a little 7 diddy tucked in some stoner metal from the UK. This is hard to find in this genre... perhaps they are too busy experimenting with the fuzz sounds. Of course I wish there were a whole lot more metric oddness in this realm, but this is a good example of the possibilities. In this song they use 7/8 in the pre-verse and 4/4 the rest of the song. This is a neat trick that some writers use to contrast sections. Since this genre likes to take us into other realms, why not into the numeric dimensions...

Orange Goblin - Hot Magic, Red Planet 4/4, 7/8

Keepin' it ODD,
