Goblin, the italian psych / prog band who got their breakthrough with their debut album, the soundtrack for Dario Argento’s Profondo Rosso here with their third album, the soundtrack for the Dario Argento movie Suspiria released in 1977. In between the band had released a regular (non soundtrack) album called Roller.
The movie Suspiria is to me like chocolate is to others, a slice of heaven. This is by far one of the best horror movies in exsistence, everything from the scrip to the lightning the settings and the soundtrack is just top notch! As this is not a movieblog i will not rant to much about the movie itself other than if you have missed it, watch it, you are in for the treat of a lifetime. If you have seen it, you know what i am talking about.
Back to the soundtrack, as said, this is Goblin‘s third album and as the soundtrack to Profondo Rosso this was also a huge hit. The tracks on this album are very creepy and eerie, just like the movie itself wich is about a witch coven. Off all of Goblin releases this one if by far one of my favourites and listening to it get me in a nice mood, this is a album you should put on a dark winters night, turn off the lights and light up a couple of candles and just loose yourself to the music.
I have the japaneese pressing of the album in mint condition complete with OBI-strip and inlay. And as always when it comes to japaneese pressings the sound is just amazing. With this said… i think i am going to watch the movie Suspiria now before it’s time for me to head off for work.
