Book Excerpt of the Day

"Dario Argento's Suspiria remains Goblin's most focused and effective horror soundtrack, fittingly for the director's most innovative film. The hypnotic and sinister theme uses celesta and bell sounds, along with synth, organ, guitar, bass, drums and percussion, to create a spellbinding whirlwind of demonic rock. Further enveloping the listener in a hellish atmosphere throughout the score are the wheezing, wailing, screaming, groaning voices of the band members, sounding like evil spirits echoing up from the pits of hell."

– from Chapter 6: A Fearful Earful of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
