A semi-quick update for ya’ll so you know what’s up: I am just waiting for the remaining guys to finish up their stuff before we can move on to the mixing process this fall. Both J and Dirk’s got 4 songs each left to nail, and the plan is that it will be taken care of during August/September. Vacations and busy schedules is something we have to live with while being musicians, you know. I always said I wanted this album out in late 2014, and I am positive the plans will work out.
As far as completed stuff goes: All the guest parts are there now, all of E‘s vocals are done since a while back, my work is finished as well except for some tiny stuff that might change over the course of completing this beast. The great Marko Saarelainen has handed over the absolute astonishing cover, and once again I am completely floored! It is absolutely massive and my fave cover yet for TPH. The people I get to work with, it is mind-boggling…
Piece by piece everything will be revealed to you until it’s time to unleash this monumental creation. I will speak a lot more about everything that led up to this when the time comes, but for now – just know that this is something way beyond what we have ever created under the TPH banner in the past. It has all come full circle finally.
For now, I just wanna thank Ellinor Asp, Jörgen Sandström, Dirk Verbeuren, Lasse Johansson and Marko Saarelainen the most since they are the biggest part of this creation, music and art wise. And naturally – The Haters, who bring this to life thanx to you making sure we could reach the monetary target. It’s your best spent money ever. You’ll see. And all the other people involved… You are all a part of what’s to come. I thank you so much, and I will thank you many a time again.
Last off: Perfection is starting to rear its beautiful head for the cause of revealing its name.
Yes, time to pre-order the CROWN shirt! Click the thumbnail for a better view of this awesome design.
Once again we will fire up a limited edition of a shirt and now is the time to put in your order. We will take pre-orders until the 18th of August, meaning you have exactly 1 month to decide if you wanna have this beautiful shirt made by www.crudeart.de in your TPH collection or not.
I MIGHT be able to print everything earlier, depending on how many/few orders come in. We will keep you updated on the printing process at the official site and at our Facebook page as always.
You put your order in now and we’ll send everything out late August if nothing fucks up along the way. This is how it is when you’re a DIY band. We have to live with the pre-order thing to actually raise enough cash to print shit. You know it’ll be worth the wait though.
T-shirt brand is Gildan Ultra Cotton, best quality on the market. You can order any size you want (from S-XXXL). And if you really want a girlie shirt, that can be arranged as well. Just make sure to write “GIRLIE + size” in your order. I’m not a hundred percent sure what brand will be used for girlies, but I’m sure they’ll be of fine quality too. The print might differ a bit in size in real life compared to the pictures, but we always aim to print as large as possible.

I thank you for giving a shit and for always supporting what we are doing. Help us make our best selling shirt yet and sport some true art on your godforsaken torso!
There is really no way for me to express how extremely thankful I am to Magnus Olsson at Crafton AB in Sweden for sending this absolute beauty over to me. My new Ibanez RGD7320Z-BKF plays like a dream and sounds massive. Yep, I now got me a 7-string, something I never thought would happen until I stumbled upon this gem. Thank you so much, Magnus. You truly are spectacular in every shape, way and form.
I also need to extend additional thanx to Johan Berglund at 4Sound, Örebro, for taking some hours out of his busy schedule to modify this beast to my wishes with drilling and whatnot to make that goddamn 0.80 E-string fit perfectly. I appreciate it so much, buddy.
More news will come up shortly… Just hang in there.
Life is good.
Word is that Mr. Verbeuren‘s about to wrap up the second track and will start working on the third real soon. He’s VERY stoked about the material and says that we have truly outdone ourselves this time around. It feels great to hear that coming from someone as awesome as Dirk. Can’t wait to hear what he’s cooking up drumwise for this masterpiece.
Don’t forget to check out his site at this location.
This is what he has to say about his work:
“- Hi guys. I am very proud to let you all know that that new TPH album will feature not one but TWO Gothenburg shredding solos by me, Henrik Danhage. Big thanx to my bro Lord K for hooking me up with great music to solo over. Hope you will enjoy it, people!”
Trust me, you fucken will.
