Goblin Buio Omega on Import LP
Buio Omega, two short and simple words that, in the minds of Goblin fans as well as horror/splatter movies fanatics, recall sounds and images of the legendary 1979 film. Directed by Joe D’Amato, it still impresses with the rawness and morbidity of its scenes, the trademark of a director who, much more than others, befits the term ‘extreme’.
The soundtrack of the film, whose main ingredients are keyboards and synthesizers, swings among echoes of Alan Parsons Project, funk/fusion and melancholic atmospheres. It was never officially published when the film came out, and was finally released on CD by Cinevox Record in 1997 and again in 2008 with two completely different tracklists.
Goblin appear here in an atypical shape, with Massimo Morante (guitar) and Claudio Simonetti (keyboards) replaced by Carlo Pennisi and Maurizio Guarini respectively, completing the line-up along with Fabio Pignatelli (bass) and Augustin Marangolo (drums).
