Profile
Goblin is an Italian progressive rock band known for their soundtracks for Dario Argento films (including Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) in 1975 and Suspiria in 1977). They were initially named Cherry Five and were influenced by Genesis and King Crimson. Their early work spawned one eponymous progressive rock record. The band was then called in as a replacement for composer Giorgio Gaslini, who had left the film Profondo Rosso after a conflict with director Dario Argento. They changed their name to Goblin and rewrote most of the score, including the famous main theme. The soundtrack albums were huge hits. They also released one soundtrack using the name Il Reale Impero Britannico. After many inactive years, the band reformed in 2000 for another soundtrack, and have remained active in various configurations featuring various membership under the names New Goblins and Goblin Rebirth.
