Goblin formed in 1972, initially as Cherry Five, citing Genesis and King Crimson as their major influences.

In 1975 they began composing horror movie soundtracks and became Goblin as it felt a more appropriate name for their new direction. The first major score Goblin composed was for ‘Profondo Rosso’ (aka Deep Red or The Hatchet Murders). Director Dario Argento had initially hired jazz pianist Giorgio Gaslini to compose the score but fired him from the production. He then tried (unsuccessfully) to replace Gaslini with Pink Floyd before settling on Cherry Five who changed their name to Goblin for the project.

Goblin also composed the soundtrack to the 1978 horror classic ‘Dawn Of The Dead’.

Goblin dates are:

July 14, Melbourne, Billboard
July 16, Sydney, Metro
