Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Dario Argento’s classic cult movie “Profondo Rosso”, Claudio Simonetti’s GOBLIN will be playing their original score live to a screening of the film for the first time in the UK, next 21st February!
Here’s a little release on this event:
“Goblin’s scores, once heard are never quite forgotten. “Profondo Rosso” is no exception, characterized by its synth heavy sound and chilling central theme. Along with “Suspiria”, “Profondo Rosso” is perhaps Argento’s most celebrated film and a total classic of the giallo horror subgenre and in its own right.”
Originally inspired by bands like King Crimson and prog-era Genesis, Goblin’s unique sound is instantly recognizable and has earned them a cult status all of their own. Having been dissatisfied with the original soundtrack, Argento called local band Cherry Five in at short notice. They renamed themselves Goblin and, legend has it, wrote the new soundtrack in one night.”
