This demos continues the evolution of Secret Archives of the Vatican. While it is still less techno/electronica than later albums would become, it also still finds them experimenting with many different world music styles from various countries. I say “them” because I believe there were two people involved in the project at this time, but I need to go back and check some articles to be sure. At this time they also put out a side project called The Shockin’ Holy Saints, although I am not totally sure if this demo or that project came out first. I love eclectic world fusion music like this, so it is always a treat to see SAotV in the tape stacks I get. The last track on here seems to get the closest to the electronic world fusion music they grow into later.
