When it comes to rare soundtracks and library releases, there are only a handful of people which recommendations that I take with the utmost seriousness. One of those persons happens to be Alfonso Carrillo of the Rendezvous LA party and who also happens to have written the liner notes for this next release from Four Flies Records.
“Presented on vinyl for the very first time is Stelvio CIPRIANI’s iconic score to director Pier Carpi’s 1979 Italian occult-themed movie, Un’ombra nell’ombra. A virtuous synth explosion composed by Maestro Cipriani and performed by the classic Goblin line-up consisting of Claudio SIMONETTI (keyboards), Massimo MORANTE (guitars), Fabio PIGNATELLI (bass), and Agostino MARANGOLO (drums).”
“The result of this special Cipriani-Goblin rendezvous is an elegant and dark sound full of deep bass and obsessive rhythms, with an innovative and experimental electronic background mxanipulated with synth and exotic percussion. Contains the classic horror theme “Deathwatch”, compiled in an essential CAM library release (Electronic Sound – CML 182), and later used in the slasher cult movie Pieces. This album is an absolute must-have for fans of Italian horror, video nasty VHS aficionados, and soundtrack and library connoisseurs.”
