    from Gibraltar:
    Beginning with their first Profundo Rosso Goblin were obviously better suited to soundtrack music than as a studio offering and the majority of their work was in this vein. One of the exceptions, their excellent second Roller is a great blend of symphonic progressive and horror-movie themes best on the lengthy track "Goblin." Their best soundtrack Suspiria was also a good movie and may be the best one to start with mixing a variety of effects into a progressive whole - interesting music. Later efforts, although I haven't heard their rare and unreissued 4th Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark were rather average including the soundtracks Zombi and Dawn Of The Dead. Most of their works are short however, rarely going over 30 minutes.
    Italian band from the 70s/80s that did mostly (or maybe only) soundtracks for grade-B horror movies. Most of their stuff is really heavy and moody, with a Floydian progressive feel, and generally pretty good. All are fairly short albums (like 25-30 min.) and most of the CDs are all pricey japanese imports.
    They are famous for the soundtrack of the Dario Argento's films. They sound like an experimental, vangard band where only the lp Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark and the last two albums are not instrumental.
    Goblin were a very prolific band from Italy, who injected much of the "progressive" idiom into their music, most of which was in the form of horror movie soundtracks. Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark was not, though, but showcases their aggressive guitar/drums/keyboard style very well. Their compositional style was quite unique, combining diminished chord textures with processed vocals, and from passages on this CD, this "horror movie style" can be felt. This, recorded in 1977, along with Roller and Suspiria are probably the "essential" Goblin works. Tenebrae is another somewhat obscure soundtrack by the kings of the Italian horror movie score team, with a large variety of the darker style of music that has always made its way into their more accessible prog rock releases.
    I heard some of the Suspiria soundtrack: eerie, dark, fascinating music, quite different from the LP I have by them: Il fantastico Viaggio del "bagarozzo" Mark. This album has vocals, and is heavily synth-orientated prog. There is even judicious use of sequencers here, fortunately they don't dominate. Except on the ethereal "Notte," there really isn't any of the horror-movie aspect so prevalent in their other work. The instrumentals "Le Cascate di Viridiana" and "...E Suono Rock" are the best tracks. "Opera Magnifica" has a nice classical-type melody with some keyboard fanfares that (surprise!) don't sound too hokey. All in all, good, but not great. -- Mike Ohman
    The only time I have heard Goblin is when I made a point of watching Dario Argento's "Suspira" horror movie to listen to the soundtrack. By today's standard's, the movie proper is b-rate suspense at best. But the suspense was heightened greatly by Goblin's frightful backing music. Very eerie and capable of causing great tension. Very good. -- Mike Taylor
