[from the supersonic Festival]
"The soundtracks of Italian horror films of the 1970s' are epic examples of filthy, psychedelic, synthy, lucid prog rock. Teamed with gratuitous nudity, bad dubbing, excessive violence and lurid fake blood, it’s a recipe for a golden age of cult cinema. One band synonymous with this type of music is Goblin.

Originally a prog rock band, they were drafted in to score the soundtrack to Dario Argento’s Profondo Rosso after friction between the director and the original composer. The entire soundtrack, including the now much loved title theme was close to being re-written. This led to a long and successful working relationship, which effectively saw Goblin become Argento’s ‘house band’. They are also responsible for the acclaimed soundtrack of Suspiria, which was recorded before Argento had made the film. In an experimental move, he wrote the film after listening to the soundtrack, letting Goblin’s eerie and atmospheric aural atmosphere guide the story. The band also produced the European soundtrack for George A. Romero’s Dawn of The Dead and scores for later Argento films.

Over the years, the band’s line up has changed numerous times, but after a long absence they have begun playing together again and are working on a new album. In a move that will excite both horror and serious music fans alike, they will make a very rare live appearance at the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham, and at London’s Scala at the end of July."
