I used to follow your old site with a fever. I never missed a posting. One day I thought the world had ended because your site was gone. I searched and searched but I finally up and thought you were gone forever. The World did not completely end but a big piece of me died. Then by chance I found this site and at first thought I had been reborn. That feeling only lasted until I saw you were only posting selections and singles. How sad, I guess I will have to simply enjoy the memories you gave us all in the past and forget I ever rediscovered this site. I can't even really call it a site now so I will call it what is really is - A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!

I am still a fan who loves you, just not this new direction.

Thanks my old fun for your comment.This new direction gives to the followers the chance to listen the style of the bands and if they liked the sound there are many places in the web to find their albums. ╬čtherwise if we upload the complete album this blog will be closed again.Thanks anyway.
