Just before beginning work on this track, I had re-watched Romero‘s “Dawn of The Dead”. I had forgotten how cool Goblin‘s score for is.
As I was watching it I thought, “This soundtrack is so cool! Dark, creepy, doom/drone-esque, cheesy, great synth sounds…”.
I began thinking about how could I do a re-version a track from “Fleisch” to sound like Goblin, and their “Dawn of The Dead” score.
Then it hit me – it HAD to be “…Prophet…” – with it’s big long chords and slow pace, it would probably work perfectly.
I spent quite some time experimenting with different synth sounds, trying to get the sounds I wanted. I was trying to re-create the same vibe and even composition structure of the track in particular “L’alba dei morti viventi”.

In the end I achieved what I had intended: A Goblin-sounding version of my song. It’s one of my favourite self-remixes/reversions. I hope you like it too.
