Goblin was an Italianprogressive rock band who were known for their soundtracks on Dario Argento films (e.g. Deep Red of 1975 a.k.a. Profondo Rosso and Suspiria of 1977). They were initially named Cherry Five and were influenced by Genesis and King Crimson. Their early work spawned one progressive rock record named after the band, until they were called in as replacements for composerGiorgio Gaslini, who had left the film Profondo Rosso after a conflict with director Dario Argento. They changed their name to Goblin and rewrote most of the score, including the famous main theme.
