It would take five years and two lineup changes for Handful of Snowdrops to release their debut album, the iconic Land of the Damned. While too many of the songs written during that period never made it to tape, some fortunately did.
This is what is believed to be the first home recording from the second generation of the band with Jean-Pierre as the lead singer. All tracks were recorded in a single day in a dark and humid basement using a beat up TEAC 4-track tape cassette recorder borrowed from a friend. Since the original mix downs are long gone, we had to salvage the music from two old worn out cassette copies.
It would be fair to say that the recordings are very representative of the overwhelming naivety of the early compositions. It’s a unique chance to have another look inside an old photo album you thought you had lost forever.
Available for the first time on vinyl, limited to 300 copies.

Il aura fallu cinq ans et trois différentes versions du groupe avant que Handful of Snowdrops puisse enfin sortir son premier album culte Land of the Damned. Bien que trop des pièces composées durant cette période n’aient jamais eu la chance d’être mises sur ruban, quelques-unes, heureusement, l’ont été.
Ceci est ce que l’on croit être le premier enregistrement maison de la deuxième mouture du groupe avec Jean-Pierre à la voix. Toutes les pièces furent enregistrées en une seule journée dans un sous-sol sombre et humide à l’aide d’un vieux magnétophone quatre pistes TEAC emprunté pour l’occasion. Comme les rubans originaux sont disparus sans laisser de trace, nous avons été forcés de récupérer les pièces de vieilles copies malmenées et surutilisées.
