CD-R and Back-up

If you ever tried to listen to your own recorded albums on CD-r and they’re about 20+ years old, you can probably throw them away…

Hydlide – Internal Impact (First version) is among them. I wasn’t able to extract the originals from that CD-r so I had to re-encode them due to a failing rip session. However, I was able to save them anyway thanks to hard-disk back-ups and Winamp that supports FastTracker2 .xm files. (Yes, I am THAT old.) Besides that, to my surprise, both Internal Impact versions (1999 & 2001) differ that much that I’ve decided to release them separately. And to throw in more surprises; Enter Your Passcode (Originally a Maxi-CD) will contain a few unreleased versions and mixes as bonus, this time as full album. So… that’s gonna be 4 new releases at first. Just to make it harder for you to choose harhar:

  • Trauma (16 Tracks)
  • Internal Impact (13 Tracks)
  • Enter Your Passcode (9+ Tracks)
  • Internal Impact 2 (16 Tracks, may change though)

This is gonna be a huge project… But I’m having fun doing it and believe me; the new Trauma already sounds awesome. It’s still old-school Industrial but as “Pioneer of the Dutch Industrial Scene” (as someone called me once on a wikipedia page -lol-), I think I can. 😉
