Prog Reviewer
3 stars The project Daemonia started in 1999, when keyboardist and composer Claudio Simonetti, former leader of Goblin, gathered around him some talented musicians as Federico Amorosi (bass), Nicola Di Staso (guitars) and Titta Tani (drums) to record on a new studio album and perform live the best known tracks taken from Dario Argento's films. According to the band, they re-arranged the original tracks by Goblin, Keith Emerson and Ennio Morricone with great care, trying not to get too far away from the original atmosphere, by combining the "old" progressive rock sound with new harmonies and the latest tendencies and adding a full orchestra as a "final touch". The result is definitively good and listening one after another to these tracks taken from the OST of film like "Zombie / Dawn Of The Dead", "Inferno", "Opera", "Suspiria", "Phenomena", "La sindrome di Stendhal", "Tenebre", "Profondo rosso" or "The Phantom Of the Opera" should be an authentic pleasure for every fan of Goblin: you can find here dark atmospheres and tension, church like organ waves and gloomy sounds, symphonic arrangements and operatic melodies intertwined with "metallic" rhythms and fiery guitar solos... Nonetheless there is nothing really new and, since this music is indelibly linked to the images of Dario Argento's films, I suggest to watch Dario Argento's DVD before...
