  • Goblin confusion

    So Goblin is playing Copenhagen in April for the first time ever and people are excited. But now it turns out there are actually 2 Goblins currently touring under the same name and they're disagreeing over who's the real Goblin; the original frontman Simonetti's new outfit which is playing Copenhagen or the other 4 original members.

    What's the board's take? Anyone still remember who played the triangle in that scene in Deep Red? Does anyone care?

    I just wanna hear Chi played like on my medium raer 7"...

      Am I wrong or did I read that a fake American ZOMBIES formed and did a few Odyssey and Oracle gigs in USA after the original band split as the LP came out?

        The "controversy" is a little funny to me but I'm not a close follower. It's not like FGTH wo Holly Johnson...

          Went to see the Simonetti version recently, very enjoyable. Someone said that the band had a tendency to go "a bit Pantera" every now and then but also conceded that it was such a good show that it didn't matter at all, which I totally second.

            This explains much. I saw Simonetti Horror Project and thought ti was good fun, but the Pantera comments are not totally invalid, though perhaps a little unfair.

              Not familiar w Pantera but metal sounds like a stretch from atmospheric horror soundtracks...

                There was borderline shred.

                  Pantera were boss - Maybe to go "a bit Pantera" was meant to mean "be totally fucking awesome (certainly for the first few albums)"

                    Hahah Pantera were alright, took themselves a little too seriously for my liking though so I never really investigated their stuff (wow, 6 albums) before Vulgar Display... You forgot to type RIP DIMEBAG. I think it can be translated to "went a bit incongruously 90s metal sounding every now and then, when some people might be expecting a forensically faithful 70s/80s sound".

                    Don't let this put you off, it was great fun and they only went off on these brief 90s wigouts on a couple of tracks.

                    (And tell me about essential early Pantera Pencilface)

                      I could maybe have dealt with Italo atmospheric soundtracks leaning occasionally towards fuzzy analog hardrock - but 90s metal ... ?!

                        Honestly it's not as bad as you're imagining, sonically similar in a couple of very short bursts. You should totally go if you've got nothing better on.

                          OK, duly noted. Thanks for the thorough guidance. Like to experience the greats when the chance presents itself so will go.

                            I didn't really notice the 90s metal, it was more 70s super heavy prog to my ears. Best gig i've been to for yonks!
