Directed in 1979 by Joe D'Amato, 'Buio Omega' still impresses with the rawness and morbidity of its scenes, the trademark of a director who, much more than others, befits the term 'extreme'.
The soundtrack , whose main instruments arekeyboards and synthesizer, echoes the Alan Parsons Project, funk / fusion and amelancholic atmosphere. It was never officially released with the film, and was finally released on CD by Cinevox Record in 1997 and again in 2008 with two completely different tracklists.
Goblin here appear in an unusual combination, with Massimo Morante (guitar) with Claudio Simonetti
(keyboards) replaced by Carlo Pennisi and Maurizio Guarini respectively, completing the line- up was Fabio Pignatelli (bass) and Augustin Marangolo (drums).
'Buio Omega' is now released on vinyl for the first time ever, a releasewaited for years by Goblin fans; the LP is housed in a beautiful gatefold covershowing inside recording sessions photos and promotional flyers/postcards.
Thetracklist is the same as the first 1997 CD edition.
