"Inferno" is a 1980 film by Dario Argento, generally considered one of the masterpieces of the Roman director. At that particular time, the artistic partnership established with Goblin, who wrote the soundtracks for "Profondo Rosso" and "Suspiria", had essentially crumbled, while in the UK Emerson, Lake & Palmer had just disbanded; Argento was therefore able to make a dream come true: to collaborate with an artist from the English prog-rock scene.

Keith Emerson was then invited to reach Dario Argento in Rome, to write, record, and direct the soundtrack of "Inferno", which became his first solo LP. The result is an album that has made history and that will always have a special place in the hearts of horror films soundtracks fanatics. "Inferno" is, of course, lead by piano and orchestral scores, sometimes rushing, sometimes soft and delicate, depending on the mood of the scenes of the movie. The two songs "Taxi ride (home)" and "Cigarettes, ices, etc." stand out for their 'rock soul', due to the presence of a robust rhythm section.
