For four decades, the Italian progressive rock band Goblin has been dominating stages all over
the planet with their scores notably used for multiple horror flicks! They are most celebrated for their contributions to
the Night of the Living Dead sequel, Dawn of the Dead. And their efforts toward Profondo Rosso (aka Deep Red) and Suspiria
have not gone unnoticed either.
Goblin is scheduled to make some rare appearances this year with concerts scheduled
at the Irving Plaza in New York, New York; Masquerade Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia; The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, Michigan;
Granada Theater in Lawrence, Kansas; Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colorado; and more!

Formed in 1972, Goblin started playing music that was along
the same vein of Genesis, Yes, Gentle Giant and ELP. Always on the lookout for connections, the band came across Eddie Offord
in London. He was then the producer of Yes. The music mogul gave their demo tape a listen and was so impressed with it, he
asked them to relocate to England. After devoting months to rehearsals, the band came back to London while Offord was busy
with a Yes tour in the U.S. After many live shows and numerous tries at inking deals with record labels, they reluctantly
returned to Italy because of their empty pockets.
Back on their home turf, the band signed on with Cinevox and reinvented
themselves as Cherry Five as recommended by the label.Their eponymous debut album eventually caught the ear of Dario Argento,
film director. He challenged the band, giving them only a single night to pen a score and one day to record it. At this time,
the band altered their name again, officially becoming Goblin. Argento's challenge led to several successful movie soundtracks,
with Suspiria (1977) becoming their most acclaimed work. The band mashed heavy riffing with busy drum work, eerie electronics
and menacing, experimental vocal effects to align with the horror genre. They worked on over a dozen film soundtracks after
that, which cemented their reputation in the film and music industry.
In 2000, after more than a two decade-long break,
Goblin got back together to compose Non Ho Sonno (Sleepless).The soundtrack was well received, and proved to the band that
they could still churn out remarkable music. In conjunction with the release of the official Goblin biography and premiere
of their website, Goblin came back again in 2005. Back to the Goblin - 2005 was cut and made accessible only through the official
website and available through iTunes. Four years later, Goblin gave their first live show in over three decades. A few concerts
were also presented in Europe that same year, which included the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham, United Kingdom; La villette
sonique in Paris; Donaufestival in Krems, Austria; and Dancity Festival at the Auditorium San Domenico - Foligno.
the band's lineup has changed up over time, they are still well known worldwide for their contributions to the silver screen.
Noted for their work on 1978′s Dawn of the Dead, the sequel to Night of the Living Dead,
Goblin contributed their own brand of music to horror movie soundtracks that have kept them alive on the music scene for 40
years! Goblin's impressive discography is comprised of: Profondo Rosso (1975); Roller (1976); Suspiria film soundtrack (1977);
La Via Della Droga (1977); II Fantastico Viaggio Del "Bagarozzo" Mark (1978); Zombi film soundtrack (1978); Patrick film soundtrack
(1979); Amo Non Amo (1979); Squadra Antigangsters (1979); Buio Omega (1979); Contamination film soundtrack (1980); Volo (1982);
Notturno (1983); Phenomena film soundtrack (1985); La Chiesa (1989); Non Ho Sonno (2001); Back to the Goblin 2005 (2006);
and Gamma film soundtrack (2007).
The fact that Goblin was an Italian progressive rock band
already makes them stand out above the rest, but they also embarked upon an interesting unconventional career path, recording
a slew of scores for horror film soundtracks.
