Old Empire proudly presents Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin performing the soundtrack to Dario Argento’s Profondo Rosso (aka Deep Red) at Barbican Hall on Saturday 21st February 2015.

Coinciding with Profondo Rosso’s 40th anniversary, Goblin will be playing their original score live to a screening of the film for the first time in the UK.

Goblin’s scores, once heard are never quite forgotten. Profondo Rosso is no exception, characterised by its synth heavy sound and chilling central theme. Along with Suspiria, Profondo Rosso is perhaps Argento’s most celebrated film and a total classic of the giallo horror subgenre and in its own right.

Originally inspired by bands like King Crimson and prog-era Genesis, Goblin’s unique sound is instantly recognisable and has earned them a cult status all of their own. Having been dissatisfied with the original soundtrack, Argento called local band Cherry Five in at short notice. They renamed themselves Goblin and, legend has it, wrote the new soundtrack in one night.

For more details, see the event page at the Barbican or on facebook.

50 VIP package tickets are available each including:

  • A meet-and-greet with the band (pre-concert)
  • A limited edition screen-printed poster
