Goblin are an Italian progressive rock band known for their soundtracks for Dario Argento films.
They were initially named Cherry Five and were influenced by Genesis and King Crimson. Their early work spawned one eponymous progressive rock record. The band were then called in as replacements for composer Giorgio 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. The film, and the soundtrack album, were huge hits.
A reshuffle in their line-up followed, and they put out an instrumental progressive rock album Roller, before they got the chance to work with Argento again for Suspiria. Other film soundtracks and a concept album followed.
