Song titles for album 13 revealed!

If you follow our social media platforms you already know this, but these are the 6 tracks that will appear on our 13th album which will be released in the first quarter of 2020, if everything goes as planned. Apart from the most important aspect, the beyond fantastic music, what’s left to reveal is the actual album title as well as the cover art. These things will be revealed… wait for it… wait for it…

Some other time.

I’m also planning to do a small run of t-shirts (and maybe even a few hoodies, though they’ll be quite expensive) with the new murderous album art as we go along to celebrate this new piece of TPH history. Is this something you’d like perhaps?

Trust me, everything will be worth the wait.

Listen up!

Well then, Haters

As I told ya by the end of 2019, everything but the last work from drummer behemoth Dirk Verbeuren has been finalized for our 13th album. And now that last missing part is also done!

Yep, Dirk‘s completed his work and within a week or 2 I will have everything delivered to me, meaning I will spend the remainder of January working the final details within the music to make it perfect. So if all goes well I’d say me and Dan Swanö at the famed Unisound AB will start mixing this monster in February! That process will of course take its sweet time, but when you least expect it you’ll have this album in your digital hands.

How’s that for making your Saturday fantastic?

You’re very welcome.

Quick update on album 13’s progress!

I know you’ve waited to hear some good news, so I think it’s time you get some, yeah?
 
First off, if you don’t follow us on Instagram you might not be in the know at all about the progress, but be sure stuff is happening daily! You just don’t see it here at our official site or over at our Facebook, so bookmark our goddamn Instagram page if you’re interested in smaller updates, ok?
 
Here you go;
 
Ms Asp has completed her main work for all the tunes and it sounds as fantastic as you have come to expect. I couldn’t be happier to be able to work with this woman once again. Now she’ll take care of all the small details and changes that I have handed over to her and put everything down as it’s supposed to be put down for the album.
 
Mr. Sandström’s pretty much wrapped up his work as well. He just has one more song to do and then some small details according to my wishes to take care of. After that he’s done! Safe to say, the World Champion of Death Metal Vocals strikes again.
 
Mr. Verbeuren is obviously a very, very busy man but is also close to finalize his otherworldly drumming for this recording.
 
Graphics and artwork phenom Marko Saarelainen is currently putting together everything for the visual packaging. As I have said before; it’s so fucken awesome to have him back doing the complete thing. It looks absolutely majestic. This could quite possibly be my fave TPH album cover.
 
On my account, I work daily with small details within the music as well as adding some minor guitar harmonies and whatnot where it’s needed while waiting for the remaining work to come in for me to deal with.
 
The plan is, and always was, to have everything done before the end of the year (depending on people’s schedules and life in general some minor delays might occur, but hey… it is what it is) so I can do the last things before submitting this 13th masterpiece to Mr. Swanö at Unisound for the lengthy and awesome process of mixing and mastering it come early 2020.
 
That’s where we are at, Haters! We are definitely moving forward big time and I am so insanely satisfied with what we are creating once again.
 
You’ll be informed here when something of importance happens that I believe you should know about. Until then, keep an eye on that damn Instagram page for smaller, continuous updates on everything, as initially mentioned.
 
Now, let Baphomet watch over you.

As you probably know by now: YOU GUYS FUCKEN DID IT!

This will be quite the rant, so hang in there or simply give zero fucks and go browse some other shit on the Internetz, ok?

You still here? Phew… let’s start then.

PART 1: The TPH DONATION EXPERIMENT 5.

It’s a success!

For the longest time I wasn’t sure I would even get to type that, to be honest. Let’s go over a few things here: I fired up this 5th edition on April 6th this year. Today it’s October 29th. That’s a span of 206 days.

None of the previous Experiments have taken this long to complete, which points to the fact that perhaps the interest of helping bands out this way is fading? Perhaps people think that donating for the cause of just getting music is just not worth it since there’s so much music out there anyways that you don’t need to pay for? I seriously have no idea, but I do know that this 5th procedure has been a fucken bitch to raise money for. Again, I’m sorry for the mass emails that have gone out to some of you more than once due to me not being computer savvy enough to make a proper mailing list. I think I got that covered now though. At 46 years of age no less! Yay fucken me!

Anyways, back to The Experiments.

Many years ago when I started the 1st one, I had zero faith in it being successful, but after that one reaching its goal you have proven to me over and over that this shit actually works. You have heard me say it too many times, but I can’t thank you enough and it wouldn’t be possible to do TPH as it is today without your monetary support.

Sure, I could do it with little to no cash actually. But that would mean I would have no vocals on there, the drums would be programmed and the actual mix and master wouldn’t be anything to write home about, among other things. Also, you would obviously never get to hear it.

That’s not the way I want it to be.

With you people raising the funds it makes it possible for me to actually create TPH as I want to create it, and I can also pay everyone involved for their efforts even if it’s not nearly enough to what these individuals are worth to me.

And “all” you people get in return is my musical vision, presented in the best way possible according to said vision.

The fact that quite a bunch of you who have donated for the 5th Experiment have done so more than once during these 206 days is also mind blowing. And even more mind blowing is seeing the bunch of people who obviously value the stuff I do so much they donate quite insane amounts of money so we can reach the goal.

I ask for 150 SEK and for that you’ll get all kinds of versions and formats when the album in question is done, and some of you donate hundreds and hundreds of dollars?! That is just so humbling.

I truly am so fucken (un)blessed to have people like you giving so many shits about TPH that you time and time again make sure another album can be recorded and released. And for that I am forever thankful.

So, how many people actually contributed this time around, you ask?

236.

Probably 30 or so of those donated more than once during the course of this process, but with the use of simple math that would be something like $42 per person. Goddamn, see now how impressive this shit is?

We’ll have to take that with a grain of salt though coz I did put the funds from the sales of the anniversary shirt and some digital TPH sales from CD Baby etc. into this Experiment, but you get the point. So few people involved and yet you have done so much. As said; humbling.

This year TPH celebrate 20 years. You getting this Experiment to the finish line is the best fucken anniversary gift I could wish for.

I raise my glass in your honor, TPH family (make that glass virtual coz it’s fucken Tuesday and I work during the weeks, you know).

PART 2: THE 13TH ALBUM.

I have kept you in the loop on the recording process for quite some time and the amount of hours and work I have put into this 13th recording can’t even be counted properly. I always planned to spend 2019 with this beast and get it out in (somewhat) early 2020, but the slow progress of the 5th Experiment really made me doubt it would happen. Safe to say, now I go back to those plans!

My personal work for this recording is more or less completed. Behind the scenes I have been balls deep in this shit. All the guitars have been put down. The bass is there. The orchestras and electronics? Check. The hundreds and hundreds of insane little details no one but me will notice? Yep, fucken there as well. And it sounds absolutely spectacular. I have never played better, nor have I ever worked harder on my material. It is TPH to a 100% and I am so incredibly satisfied with what this is turning into.

As you have noticed in some updates along the way, the plan was also to have everyone else’s complete efforts delivered to me by now. That hasn’t happened just yet due to regular life and whatnot getting in the way. Everything is in progress though, and once again; it sounds fucken spectacular.

Jörgen Sandström only has one song left to put down his grunts for. Ellinor Asp’s got quite a bit of work left, but then again the magical insanity she provides isn’t exactly something you fire up in a heartbeat. Dirk should have wrapped up his stuff within a month or so and Lasse nailed all of his solos a few weeks ago during one day inside The Dungeon. Some fantastic guest contributions are done as well, and I’m extra honored to have this one guy on there. In time you’ll know who it is.

To once again get to work with Jörgen Sandström, Ellinor Asp, Dirk Verbeuren, Lasse Johansson, the guests and (when it’s time to mix and master) Dan Swanö is such a privilege. You guys and gal are simply the best. I’m also extremely happy that you all get to work with a genius like myself. Boom!

PART 3: I DIDN’T PARTICIPATE IN THE 5TH EXPERIMENT BUT I WANT THE ALBUM WHEN IT’S COMPLETED, AND I ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE PAYING FOR IT.

Oh, so you’re one of those rare ones? Yeah, hand me that cash so I can spend it on beer, software and other crucial shit! Simply PayPal 150 SEK to theprojecthate@gmail.com and you’ll get the album digitally as soon as it’s done.

PART 4: SO WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENS NOW THEN?

Well, I will keep on working small details while I wait for everyone’s stuff to come in, to make sure this 13th album is nothing short of a perfect display of TPH. There’s, as mentioned, still quite some work to be done before we will enter the final phase, which is the mix and master, but I will keep you all up-to-date as we move forward now when something happens in the recording process that I believe is of value to you all. So, expect a little more activity on out social media platforms (just don’t expect a lot coz I, as you know, rather spend time creating music).

Last off; as I said in the beginning: YOU GUYS FUCKEN DID IT! You have made sure we can record and release this 13th album.

Thank you so much, all 236 of you.

Cheers!

$9000 reached!

Damn!
 
Earlier today (haven’t been able to inform you until now, sorry about that!) we reached 9000$ of the $10000 goal needed to be able to do our 13th album! It blows my mind that it obviously might work yet another time this TPH Donation Experiment thing, even though it’s never taken this long to make it a success.
 
210 of you goddamn heroes (along with some digital sales of previous albums and the anniversary shirt sales) have brought us to exactly $9003,09 at this very moment. Only $1000 more to go and then we’re home free, goddamnit!
 
 
In between these updates which appear only when there’s something of importance to announce, be sure we are working our fucken asses off on this planned 13th TPH creation. There’s still quite a lot of work to be done, but if everything works out, and we reach the target in a not too distant future, I hope we can get this absolute beast out to you who have helped us finance it come sometime early 2020. I will, of course keep you updated as we go along.
 
Again, I thank all of you who have helped us get this far. I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know.
 
Have a great weekend, Haters! You just made mine exactly that.
