Templars vs Hashisheen

Templars vs Hashisheen is a new tune by Secret Archives of the Vatican.

Our studio should be fully functional in about two weeks (mid March 2018) so we’re releasing individual tracks like this in the meantime. Once we’re up and running we’ll get started on an album project or three. We have some artistes who we’ll be collaborating with.

We’ll also be able to do much better artwork and also get back into making videos.

Twelve Years a Mamluk

February 14, 2018

Twelve Years a Mamluk by Thousand Yard Prayer is available now from Bandcamp.

The rhythm is a 4/4 time Arabic Maqsum at 70 bpm. The scale the ney flute is playing is maqam Saba.

Every so often when writing a tune, it takes on a life of its own and turns out nothing like you planned. This is one of those.
