Friday 25 February @ The Arches
As well as being one of the most important Italian rock bands, Goblin are, alongside the likes of Ennio Morricone, the creators of some of the finest horror film soundtracks ever made. Throughout their career, which spans from 1972 to the present day, Goblin have soundtracked around twenty films, but it is their rescoring of Profondo Rosso, Suspiria and Dawn of the Dead that really forms the basis of their legendary reputation. Ultimately dealing in progressive rock, through their hugely celebrated soundtracks the band explored electronica, tribal rhythms and experimental orchestration, as well as the notorious distorted vocals and terrifying experimental sounds which so perfectly enhanced the on-screen action.
Enjoying a huge resurgence of interest in recent years, particularly amongst the alternative rock, goth and horror film communities, Goblin have reissued many of their classic soundtracks and DVDs of the films they worked on, with Giovanni Aloisio's Goblin – La Musica La Paura Il Fenomeno published in 2005.
