There is little closer to perfection than the magic blending between Dario Argento’s frames and Goblins’ music in “Profondo Rosso” (Deep Red), both made in 1974 – and then released the following year – when both artists were living a period of maximum creativity: their fortuitous meeting produced two masterpieces, one cinematographic and one musical, a source of inspiration in the decades to follow up to the present day.
The music of “Profondo Rosso” was originally commissioned to jazzman Giorgio Gaslini, a former Dario Argento’s collaborator who wrote the songs on side B of this LP, but was soon entrusted to four young musicians from Rome: Claudio Simonetti (keyboards), Massimo Morante (guitars) , Fabio Pignatelli (bass guitar), Walter Martino (drums). The legendary theme and sinister melodies of the title track set a new standard at the time for film music, not just in the thriller / horror genre, and thanks to their dazzling debut Goblin still enjoy international fame and respect.
An essential masterpiece for any lover of soundtracks and cinema, Italian music, progressive rock, jazz-rock and much more.
A piece of History, reissued in a faithful reproduction of the original 1975 version.
