I feel a little ghoulish looking at these under the circumstances... but wow! These are incredible. I can see the Moonbeam Levels master tape! Thanks for sharing.

That article is over a year old. These photos have been out for a long while. I downloaded every single item they put up to download. I have looked through every photo. It's incredibly interesting. You could get lost on one photo for 20 minutes at a time, seeing the random stuff in a room or trying to read what's on the spine of a tape case or VHS case. The abandoned offices with desks, chairs, a random guitar or piano, an old computer, open drawers with bags of money, stacks of CDs, a bible, the laundry room with clothes, open suitcases of random shit, piles of just mess (like in the garage near the door to enter the building - why hasn't someone cleaned that up?), the equipment room with all the guitars, SOTT drums, Parade drums, and just general messy trash laying around is all very fascinating to look through.

Someone on the Org created a map of the Vault and noted what could be found in these photos. It shows just how much we couldn't see or document, but something exists in those boxes. It's pretty amazing.

Just watch out for the pics of his body. Once you see them, you will never forget them.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Like TP said above, these photos are not new to us. I went to the article, but for some reason, you couldn't get them to open or even save any. I did like trying to read the spines of the tapes for titles, etc. but with so little coming out even three years later, it just kinda makes me............grrr! Don't you wish you could go to Iron Mountain, put on latex gloves and just spend 7 days there, listening to anything you wanted?? (Like an international spy)

It was Kares who did this (has this link https://docs.google.com/s...I/htmlview at the bottom of their messages)? Are any of the tapes showing anything from this century or is that music saved on hard drives? Have any of the engineers from this time (00’s and 2010’s) spoken up about how and what format things were recorded?
