While preparing for a tour, I will generally record some of the practices. A sort of tradition of mine is to take some of these recordings and make a little 'tour only' release. A good way to get a little extra money at the merch table, and if someone liked something from the set in particular, it will likely be on the EP.
For the 'Howl on Wind' tour Drekka did in 2004 w/ rivulets, Wim at Morc was kind enough to put together this 'tour only' EP for me.
Recorded a week before flying out, it contains a pretty good idea of what Drekka sounded like on the tour.
I am not entirely happy with the vocals, listening back to it eight years down the line. But, it is what it is and there is a lot to it I do still enjoy.
And it reminds me of a very special tour w/ great friends.
This digital re-release contains photos of the original artwork from the hand-made edition, plus photos of the studio during which the recordings are taken.
