Late last week we brought you Goblin Rebirth‘s self-titled album teaser, and today we’re bringing you the album’s debut single, “Requiem for X,” which you can hear in the player above. It’s an instrumental track, it’s haunting, and it’s definitely -inspired prog, all of which means that it’s fantastic!
Guitarist Giacomo Anselmi said of the track:
The song is a prayer… It starts very sad, but it builds to become furious in the end. It tells the story of the death of a goblin. Fabio (Pignatelli) arranged the entire song. A child was supposed to sing the whistle melody at the beginning, but we changed it — we didn’t want another ‘School at Night.’ It’s unbelievable, a continuous crescendo until the song stops. That’s the moment when X dies.
Goblin Rebirth will be released on June 30, 2015, via Relapse Records.
Stay tuned toas more Goblin Rebirth stuff becomes available.
