Goblin's Suspiria is tense, spooky, darkly melodic Italian progressive rock circa 1977. This mostly instrumental album has a palpable sense of dread that takes the listener for a dark and twisted ride. I mean it's just creepy, and unlike most soundtracks Susperia succeeds as music that can be enjoyed separately from the film. In other words it's not background music. The compositions are top notch, the musicians are virtuoso level and there is a lot of timbral variation. Bells, assorted percussion, marimba, guitar, drums and some spooky keys are used effectively to set a properly disturbing mood in compositions that range from the atmospheric to the odd and almost jazz-like. Unusual and interesting.
