Stream Goblin Rebirth Goblin Rebirth (Stereogum Premiere)
The name Goblin Rebirth does not refer to the reincarnation of a goblin, but rather the revival of Italian prog-rock band Goblin, renowned for scoring horror films like Suspiria, Tenebre, Profondo Rosso, and George Andrew Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead. Original members Fabio Pignatelli (bass) and Agostino Marangolo (drums) make up Goblin Rebirth, along with a new guitarist, Giacomo Anselmi, and two new keyboard players, Aidan Zammit and Danilo Cherni. The band has already released a pair of funky yet eerie singles from their upcoming self-titled album — “Requiem For X” and “Book Of Skulls” — and now, you can now stream the album in full, a week before its official release. The collection tells the tale of an imaginary film about the birth of an evil dwarf-like monster, and the droning, organ-heavy music stays true to Goblin’s legacy. Listen.
