As with many occult electronikx projekts: thee roots ov this projekt are rather obscure, but thankx to thee kindness ov thee dear friend Mauricio [who also provided the rip here ov his copy ov Secrets] we have some ammount ov info to share..
"From the roots of Kriessern Austria,everything started with a band named L.A.A formed by Alzbeth, Andy, and Albin Julius in 1991. They played 2 concerts and recorded some tracks in studio. After too many understanding problems,Alzbeth and Albin formed THE MOON LAY HIDDEN BENEATH A CLOUD, and Andy departed to form Vatican's Children with some members of the very first Alzbeth band E.Win and Female Singer Nihal."
For myself personally Vatican's Children were one ov very few projekts that seem to fuse genres ranging from extremely depressive gothic-rock to minimal-occult industrial to abrasive late 90's tekno, and pull it off astonishingly.. Tis hard to do justice to thee uniqueness ov thee sounds they were creating.. Hope that these releases [which were self-released on Vatican's Children's own private label] provide inspiration for the readers ov this blog as they have here..
