The ones further down are much more difficult to read, sorry :(

The ROM starts off with the first minute or so of King Diamond’s Omens playing, as the cover of their Conspiracy album spins around. There is also a rotating cube going around the screen, but it is unclear as to what it is. The strange thing about this part of the demo is that the song being played is Omens, which isn’t from the Conspiracy album shown on the screen.

Next up is Coroner’s Sirens, from the Mental Vortex album. This time the on-screen album art is the right one for the song, but this time it’s waving rather than spinning.

This is followed up by another song by King Diamond, Shrine. The album art is from Abigail, which had this song as a bonus track.

The rest of the demo is a loop of Destop playing some metal riffs with some special thanks spinning in the background. I tried to read some of them, but the resolution is pretty bad, and the ROM won’t run on an emulator. The description also mentions that the riffs at the end only work with an expansion pak, but I haven’t been able to confirm this.
