An unreleased epic45 album from the era between Drakelow and May Your Heart Be The Map. This collection of music began life as tracks depicting a return to the Drakelow Tunnels site, but this time to woodland above ground.

This idea got abandoned and, a little later, the tracks changed and were added to. Each track was considered for inclusion on both May Your Heart be The Map and the first My Autumn Empire album but it never felt quite right. Instead, they always seemed to belong together. And together they languished for many years.

Finally, here is the album, newly mastered by Ben Holton himself.

The missing link between Drakelow and May Your Heart be The Map
