We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Awsome work, as always! Period.

By the way, can you upload your back cover (the one with the tracklist) in a higher resolution (it's only in 400x310)
Thanks a lot in advance!
