The soundtrack to Joe D’Amato’s Buio Omega is a pretty awesome proggy bass-n-synth fest that really doesn’t let you in on what you’re going to see when this Italian slash-splat masterpiece gets going.
It’s got everything a transgressive Italian horror movie should have–a bit of wanton slicing, some embalming, some necrophilia…and then there’s the score by Goblin, which really shows off another side of the band that you don’t really get to fully appreciate with Suspiria or Dawn of the Dead.
Buio Omega can be a rough watch–it’s a grossout contest once the embalming sequences start, and the corpse disposal scene is pretty stomach-churning. But the soundtrack for this must not be missed.
Check out a full ten minutes of the Goblin soundtrack for Buio Omega courtesy of Youtube (while it lasts, you never know when they’re going to take it down, those YouTube folks) and don’t miss the trailer below, either.
By the way, the Goblin soundtrack for Buio Omega is one of the titles for sale in the Turntabling shop.
