4.The snake awakens
“Roller” was the second record for Goblin, originally released in 1976, just after the successful score of Profondo Rosso, and is also one of the very few Goblin records that was not intended to be a soundtrack.
Here the band develop their dark, hypnotic and fully instrumental sound, with a dynamic edge that probably makes this record their ‘proggiest’ ever; every instrument shines brightly, from the solid funky rhythmic section to the group’s typical obscure keyboard sounds and the exceptional guitar work.
“Roller” also features new members Agostino Marangolo on drums (from Flea) and Massimo Guarini on keyboards, together with Massimo Morante (guitars), Claudio SImonetti (keyboards) and Fabio Pignatelli (bass guitar).
Nothing less than a masterpiece, here reissued on 140gr. clear purple vinyl.
