The Skinny: Relapse Records is excited to share “Book of Skulls” from Goblin Rebirth’s upcoming self-titled album (due June 29, 2015). Inspired by the legendary Goblin, the 1970’s horror-synth/film score icons responsible for such soundtracks as Suspiria, Zombi and Tenebre, Goblin Rebirth came together after a temporary reformation of the original group in 2009.
The new incarnation of the group contains the famed rhythm section of the original Goblin (drummer Agostino Marangolo and bassist Fabio Pignatelli, who both played on the classic soundtracks to Zombi/Dawn of the Dead, Suspria, Profondo Rosso/Deep Red and more), with the addition of Aidan Zammit and Danilo Cherni on keyboards and Giacomo Anselmi on guitar.
The band formed in 2010 and started with a live repertoire of Goblin hits and some unusual songs from more obscure Goblin soundtracks. The band members soon began creating new material and decided to look to the future, creating songs that grew out of an organic process, through a combination of individual compositions and jam sessions.
Goblin Rebirth Track Listing:
01. Requiem For X
02. Back In 74
03. Book Of Skulls
05. Evil In The Machine
