Sacrilegium is the third album by the rock band Devil Doll, released on May 1992 on Hurdy Gurdy Records. A concept created by Mr. Doctor, Sacrilegium is the first album by Devil Doll recorded as a single lineup, located in Ljubljana.

Track listing[edit]

Lyrics and music by Mr. Doctor, musical contribution by Francesco Carta and Michel Fantini Jesurum, arranged by Devil Doll.

  1. "Sacrilegium" - 49:16

"Sacrilegium" ends at 43:30 followed by silence until 47:38 at which point a hidden track entitled "The Funeral" begins. It is an audio sample of a priest reading a eulogy and subsequent sounds of someone shoveling dirt into a grave. After this fades, Mr. Doctor's voice can be heard playing in reverse. He speaks for about 20 seconds and the track comes to an end.

When reversed, the words Mr. Doctor appears to be saying are Even angels cry if a heron refuses to fly and prefer to creep among worms.

A part played with the accordion (starting approx. 13:51) is actually a traditional Slovenian song "Vsi so venci bejli".
