1979 saw Goblin working on the soundtrack for this Italian film starring Jaqueline Bisset and Terence Stamp. Believe it or not, the title track was informed more by Burt Bacharach than prog, but the old classic proggy Goblin sound does rear its head on parts of this soundtrack.
Have a listen to this rare, unusual-for-Goblin track from Amo Non Amo, released in the USA as Together? Turntabling has this Goblin soundtrack on vinyl for sale while supplies last…
Here’s some of the more what-you’d-expect from Goblin from the very same soundtrack:
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.

A driving, psychedelic piece introduces the soundtrack for The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue
. The lively first track of this album (John Dalton Street
) is named after a street in Manchester. Building over the film’s opening montage of motorcycling out of London to the title’s location, this piece seems more like a backing for a caper flick.
Only when the second cut (Surreal) hits the needle, does one realize something is wrong with the vibrant life of the first track. The tone becomes uneasy. Low groans and whimpers seep into album. Echoes and laughter bring chills to spine. When the John Dalton Street orchestration returns, the sinister has taken over. What has happened?
Murders happen in this movie. The police suspect a couple of outsiders, with devil worship as their motive. The actual culprits includes the unborn, the recently deceased, and the government’s latest idea for pest control.
As an individual experience, this soundtrack is amazing. Death Waltz Records released a Vinyl LP of The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue that any fan of the movies and soundtracks should seek out. Composer Giuliano Sorgini, horror expert Steve Thrower, and cover artist Luke Insect provide the liner notes.
