Release id #185391 : Target 2 Preview

A Hardcore release in 1998? AFAIK Hardcore died in 1996 as it was absorbed by Onslaught after the co-op.
Calypso as member of Hardcore?
That's kind of a strange release...

Hi Didi,

just do the math. The group died in 96 and a release surfaced much later from a formerly unknown member ...

Seems like there was a rebuild of the group planned, but it did not come to live ...

It's not obvious at all, there's no "math" to do here. All seems just made up.

Let me explain:

I found this release on one of the disks, I received from Calypso back when we were still swapping. The disk contained no disknote from him.

When I uploaded the release to CSDB, I remembered that Calypso participated at some stage, but I was not aware that HC had already died by 1998. After reading Didis comment and checking the related entries and release dates, I noticed that Didi is right. Then my first thought was, that there must have been a rebuild of the group in 1998. That is why I thought it is obvious. :-)

Since I had no memories about a (planned) rebuild, I started to dig in my old disks looking for more HC releases from that time. I did not find further ones, but what I actually found, are disknotes to/from different sceners (or just mentioning names) that were supposed to be involved with the project.

In the meantime I contacted some of the persons mentioned in the notes. By now one guy has confirmed that he was somehow involved, and I have also found the disknote in which Calypso confirms that he joins the rebuilt group.

Sorry for any confusion caused.
