3 stars With Buio Omega Goblin proove once again that they are masters of groovy, soulful and utterly dark progressive rock. Recorded at the end of the 70's, this is the soundtrack of Joe d'Amato shocking horror B movie which is all about necrophily and sadistic perversion. For an exploitation film Buio Omega is above the average containing some good claustrophobic sequences but I think that the music helps a lot to create a moody-intoxicated ambience. The self title track is a catchy and efficient composition for repetitive electronic arpeggiatos, sustained by a dynamic-pulsating groove and blackened epic melodies. The second part of the song features langurous-melodic piano lines taking back the usual theme with a kitchy-tense-romantic feel. The other tracks alternate old fashioned fusion-electronic jazzy stuffs with some astonishing creepy-foggy organic sequences and minimal captivated little piano notes. This is all time Goblin musical signature despite that is not at the level of furious, freaked out songs written for "Deep Red" or "Suspiria". Not my favourite but still refined and cinematically evocative.

"Buio Omega" is not at the level of "Profondo Rosso" or "Tenebre" but has the classic Goblin style: dark and shorts athmospheres, tension, some great proggy guitar sect ... (read more)
