Episode 535: Goblin Rock - interview with Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin

December 21, 2018

It might be just days before Christmas but around the RAM offices it's still feeling a lot like Halloween. The legendary 70s prog rockers and horror film soundtrack composers Goblin need no introduction. The band has scored beautiful music for such classics as "Suspiria", "Dawn Of The Dead", and "Profoundo Russo". Mainman Claudio Simonetti is basically the John Williams of extreme cinema. Now touring as "Claudio Simonetti's Goblin", we were treated to a unique screening of "Suspiria" with the band playing the music parts live!! After the show we sat with Mr. Simonetti with a glass of red wine and we talked about this unique tour, working within the Metal scene, and his take on the recent "Suspiria" remake. Musical royalty!! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we address the bizarre Pat O'Brien thingy and crank some Goblin, Cast The Stone, Mother Feather, Slasher Dave, Expire, Zombie Assault and (of course) Zombi. Finally, we feature veterans The Last Ten Seconds Of Life in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!
