Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin Announces ‘Demons’ North American Tour

Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin

Announces North American Tour,

Performing Score to ‘Demons’

Along with Film Screening

+ “Best Of” Set

Just a year after conquering North America for the 45th anniversary of ‘Suspiria,’ Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin is returning to the states! This time, the collective will be performing the score to the chilling and grotesque 1985 horror flick, Demons, as well as a comprehensive “best of” set. The full itinerary and tickets can be found HERE.

Composer Claudio Simonetti has written and recorded some of the most influential soundtracks in horror, including Dawn of the Dead, Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebrae, and countless others, with his seminal work still informing the genre to this day. Simonetti and his collective will perform the haunting and tense score to Demons. The film was produced by master of horror Dario Argento (Suspiria, Tenebrae, etc.) and was directed by Lamberto Bava, son of iconic cinematographer Mario Bava. Enter the screening with caution and don’t touch any props, lest the demons possess you…

In 2022, Simonetti’s Goblin celebrated the 45th Anniversary of Dario Argento’s iconic picture, Suspiria with this modern progressive update to the iconic soundtrack. Suspiria – Prog Rock Version is available HERE.

In addition to standard admission tickets, there is a VIP Sound Check Party / Meet & Greet Add-On option available to ticket holders for certain shows as indicated on the ticketing page HERE. The VIP Add-On by itself does NOT serve as a ticket for entry. The package includes a private soundcheck party, a meet and greet and a VIP laminate as well as first access to merchandise and front of the line access where applicable. Tickets are limited per show. You will receive an email three days before the show with instructions and times for the meet and greet.

“[Simonetti’s] electronic score proved to be the perfect counterpoint to the rock songs, often oozing with menace and certainly adding to the fear factor… And, as usual with Simonetti, it makes for a great listen outside the film.” – Horror Cult Films

“Simonetti acting as a solo composer here rather than as part of Goblin replicates this in his pulsating electronic score… It’s got a sense of stalking malevolence about it right up there with the film itself and is horror music personified.” – Ave Noctum

“…a fascinating snapshot of a composer in transition, moving from a band setting to a solo career, expanding his range and creating some of the most stirring music of his career. We treasure Demons for withstanding the test of time, but the real gem here is Simonetti.” – Popshifter

“Argento’s eye for filmmaking was still razor-sharp in those days; combined with the like-father-like-son style of Bava and a nightmarish synth score from Goblin’s Claudio Simonetti the film had all the necessary elements to satisfy horror fans. And truly, it’s a blast from start to finish with little time wasted.” – Dread Central

“This soundtrack perfectly captures the growing tension created by the film as the main characters are transformed into demons, leading the way with the electro metal of Killing, the percussively cruel Demon, and the now classic cult hit Demon. 30 years later the music still shines with timeless quality thanks to the eclectic talent of composer Claudio Simonetti.” – Rustblade
