DARK SYMPHONIES is honored to re-introduce the world to one of the greatest thrash albums from the 80's. For the first time ever as a stand alone CD, we present a true thrash classic, HYDRA VEIN's sophomore masterpiece, "After the Dream"! Hydra Vein was formed in the spring of 1987 featuring ex-Deathwish members, brothers Damon and Nathan Maddison and was hailed as the UK's answer to Slayer! This amazing piece of history will have the same standard of quality as expected from CRYPT LPs and features the amazing original cover artwork courtesy of the legendary Dan Seagrave. Also featured are unpublished band photos, lyrics and new liner notes by original band members. This CD is designed after the original 1989 vinyl release, taking elements from the original layout with attention to detail, even down to the logo and typeface for a touch of nostalgia. In an effort to preserve the integrity of the original recording, we have meticulously and subtly mastered the audio files from the original dat tape to retain the dynamics and atmosphere of the original recording. This new master is approved and endorsed by the band. This is the absolute best sounding version of this amazing release, guaranteed!
