Man, you just can’t keep Italian horror-progsters down can you? In addition to the group currently touring as Goblin, we now have the band’s original rhythm section from back in the day producing music as Goblin Rebirth. This album soundtracks a film so perfectly suited to Goblin that it doesn’t even need to exist for them to soundtrack it. On Relapse.
8/10 gbar Customer review, 9th May 2017
Italian prog stalwarts Goblin has had a resurgence in popularity over the last decade or so (Opeth even named a song after them on Pale Communion), combined with their long-found love for creating film soundtracks. Former Goblin members Fabio Pignatelli and Agostino Marangolo created a new incarnation of the band, Goblin Rebirth, and much like the other Goblin band incarnations in recent years, they carry on working the same concept of the original Goblin, whilst working with modern production and films. It’s pretty good instrumental jamming albeit with a modern take, such as the Kraftwerk-inspired “Evil In The Machine” (complete with robotic vocals), and “Requiem For X” is a full-on symphonic prog rock assault. It definitely sounds like Goblin, and it retains elements of all the previous incarnations of the band, yet there are plenty of surprises that pop out in the most unexpected ways that will attract those who enjoy the older Goblin classics like Suspira and Profondo Rosso.
