“Archiviarum” contains the intentions in the title, that is to rediscover and use historical recordings made over the years, all provided with new mixes and, in some cases, new arrangements. Says the band: “Four tracks are new, some are unreleased, some have appeared in other projects TSOP has been involved with, and two are covers (none of the tracks have appeared on our albums before). Everyone has been given a new face. This is not a typical TSOP album, but all in all, we thought these fragments deserved to be put together into a real album ”.
The result is once again exceptional.
