Jump to reviews or comments

One Inch Badge

The Italian horror soundtrack maestro Claudio Simonetti and his band Goblin perform their classic 1977 score live to a screening of the famous Dario Argento film Suspiria (celebrating 40 years). In 1975, Goblin were called in by director Argento as a replacement for Giorgio Gaslini on his film Profondo Rosso. Their soundtrack went on to sell over one million copies spending 52 weeks on the Italian charts. In 1977, Argento contacted Goblin again to score his cult film Suspiria. In 1978, they scored the classic Dawn of the Dead directed by George Romero.

The band's leader Claudio Simonetti talks about bringing cult classic horror film scores to the Edinburgh Fringe
