If you caught our music feature on bands inspired by Italian prog-rock legends Goblin, then you got a sweet sample of the retro-electro stylings of artist Umberto (alias Matt Hill), who has a dead-on sense of vintage '70s and '80s synth style, especially as it applies to horror and giallo soundtracks from that period.

His latest record Confrontations plays like a lost lo-fi '80s sci-fi/horror score in search of a film, and the latest video “Dead Silent Morning” offers a peek at what that imaginary movie might look like. In fact, it's such a faithful recreation of the look and feel of that period that I double-checked to confirm it wasn't a recycled clip from an actual '80s film (it isn't). 
 
 
You can hear more of Umberto's retro-horror grooves at his Bandcamp page, including the album Night Has a Thousand Screams – an alternate score to the splatter classic Pieces which the artist first performed live at the Glasgow Music and Film Festival last February.
