2004 began a mostly uneventful couple of years. In 2004, I began recording more songs for an album I called Euthanized that would have been released in 2005. The funny thing about that album is that it never really materialized minus a handful of demo-stage pieces. Those early versions of the songs that were intended for it were pretty good, I have to say. According to my files, the tracks that were to be on the album were “Indulge,” “Rutherford,” “You Always Leave,” and “Montezuma.” You’ll have to take my word for it, I guess, but the production quality was dramatically better than what you’d find on Campfire Tales. Still not good, but better.
