Recorded and mixed in three days at Portacabin Studios, Westerfield, Suffolk on 4 tracks.

Unlike the other demo releases, this is NOT death metal. This musical style is a very similar style to that played on the album The Principle of Evil Made Flesh but with a less production quality and less ineligible vocals.

The cover says the demo is a promo for Goetia.

The demo was officialy re-released by Mordgrimm on may 5th 2014. This remastered new version (engineered in Turan Studio in Oxford) includes as bonus the song "Spattered in Faeces", the only surviving track from the Goetia sessions, the unreleased track "Devil Mayfair (Advocatus Diaboli)", recorded at Samhain 1992, plus other three tracks from that session, along with two short instrumental pieces from the band's former keyboardist, Ben Ryan. New cover artwork features paintings of Daniel P. Carter.

Available in the following formats:
* Gatefold vinyl edition: 666 copies in three two-colour 180gm vinyl variants limited to 222 copies each: orange/black, blue/grey and grey/black; each copy have a booklet limited to this edition, with a foreword by Dani Filth and previously unseen photos from the band vaults.
