3.Opening to the Sighs
After the incredible debut of “Profondo Rosso” (Deep Red), the soundtrack of the eponymous 1975 film directed by Dario Argento, no one could ever imagine that shortly afterwards Goblin would be able not only to reach its heights but even further refine what the band already delivered in their first record.
While “Profondo Rosso” had been partly composed by Giorgio Gaslini, “Suspiria” is a 100% Goblin album, the result of a choral work in which every single musician was inspired at the highest levels. The band were here able to experiment more with daring and unpredictable combinations of musical instruments such as bouzouki and celesta, tribal percussion, all kinds of sound effects on the voice and on musical instruments, all perfectly combined with the typical mid-70s progressive and jazz-rock Goblin trademark.
Together with “Profondo Rosso” and “Roller” (a non-soundtrack instrumental album released in 1976), “Suspiria” was Goblin’s third hit in just three years, an LP that still today sounds incredibly innovative and … scary! Another masterpiece, a must have for any music lover, nothing less!
