HONOUR - update

Band: URUK HAI
Title: Honour
Reason for update: see text

It was back on 10 February 2009 in only the second post in this Blog that Nazgul covered the one of the very first items of Alex's Uruk Hai project that he owned, the "Honour" demo of 2004. It's been nearly a year since then, so the time seemed ripe for two updates in relation to this tape.

Firstly, the colour image above shows the actual inlay design as it was originally conceived. The black and white xeroxed inlay of the 2004 demo gives an atmospherically grainy view of Gondolin but the full-colour version shows it rather better, and leads one to imagine how striking the tape would have looked wrapped in a colour cover. Despite Nazgul's efforts to find the artist who illustrated the original picture it remains a mystery for now, but as fellow fans of Hugin I thought you might find this interesting.

Secondly, Nazgul has also taken the opportunity to revisit that original Blog piece and to revise the photos within from the basic single scanned image to three more detailed photos of the demo in question. Why not revisit that original second post and see for yourself...?
