It took some hours but everything is packed and sent now. We just need to state something: There’s a slight chance that someone who ordered a S hoodie will receive a M one, due to tiredness when the packing occurred. If you happen to be the one (IF this is the case, we’re not sure) – just get in touch with The Lord and he’ll sort the correct size for ya and pay for the return of that wrongly sent hoodie, ok? You guys should be receiving your merchandise any day now. If you are in Sweden, hopefully they will show up latest Friday. You guys abroad have to wait a little longer ofcourse, all thanx to the slow postal system.
If you happen to not get your shit in a week or two, that shipment is prolly stolen by some low-life asshole and we’ll have to sort new stuff for you. Just have patience and let us know if this is that case. We will never, ever try to rip you off, and you know this. Thanx so much for the support. Haters. It means the world to us.
Also, hang in here and over at the forums for the latest news about the recording of the new album.
Jo finished up all her vocals yesterday and she’s done a terrific job. She definitely pulled off some unexpected things that we think you will enjoy and be surprised by when you hear it. Who knew she had it in her, the little one, haha… J’s also nailed 3 tunes so far, which means he’s still got 4 more songs to do asap. His vocals are put on hold this week though since he has some gigs with Krux to take care of. He should be back on track by next week though. We are still waiting for some guest parts to drop in as well. Things are shaping up to become a complete monster when it comes to this album…
If you wanna see some photos from Jo’s vocal sessions, go here and drool, you perv. We will post some videos and teasers as soon as we get around to creating those. That shit takes time and if there’s anything we don’t have shitloads of it is, yes – you guessed it, time. We are working on it though. In the meantime we can inform you that the shirts and hoodies are about to be packed and delivered in case you ordered one. Stand by yer mailbox now, you hear? We’ll be back shortly with more information about the recording process.
Check this topic for all the information and a bunch of photos:
On another note, J is in the studio as we type this, doing his work for the album. Due to some goddamned flu and shit it’s been a little delayed but he’s getting his work done one tune at the time (like if there’s any other way to do shit, duh). We will post some videos and whatnot as we go along. Just watch us bitches.
Here’s a shot of Jo in action of some kind:
Things are progressing nicely in the Hate camp, to say the least. K finished up the bass a few days ago and it seems like everything is definitely in order with that one. Some additional guitars have been added as well by K, adding even more intensity to this masterpiece (yeah, that’s what it fucken is). The drums are all put down and checked and we have absolutely nothing to complain about with those either. Thomas has done a fucken excellent job, which you will hear. Ms. Jo will come to K’s flat tomorrow (Wednesday) and start preparing for her 4 days recording session with Robban at Rat Productions (the same guy we have used for her vocals over the last 2 albums). Jörgen, the almighty J, nailed a tune last week and then got himself blessed with a cold that has put him on hold for a few more days before he can enter the studio again and continue recording his monstrous growls. He’ll try his best to get some work done this week.
And in the wonderful time of computers we can all work simultaneously with this album which means that Dan Swanö‘s now got all the files from K and has started to work a little with the sound for the album, meaning working as much as possible with the drums, the guitars, keyboards, programmings and the bass since he can’t really sink his teeth into the vocals just yet, for reasons stated above, duh. The guest spots are starting to drop in as well and these guys deserve a fucken round of applause for what they are creating with us on this album, that’s for sure. No, we won’t reveal any names just yet but in time you will naturally know.
We can’t stress this enough and this is how we really feel about it (you know, this is what all artists say – but as we have mentioned when it comes to The Hate; we speak the truth – everyone else lie): this is shaping up to be a complete monster of insane proportions – just as we have said all the time while writing and recording this piece. As soon as we possibly can there will be some treats for you at this site and at our forums – so make sure to check in often.
During Jo’s recording sessions we will keep you updated over at the forums, so keep an eye on that as well in the meantime, ok? And last off, here’s a shot of K just after adding some additional guitars. Happy as an arsonist inside a church. And if you look closely you’ll even see something reminiscent of a song on the monitor.
You will soon experience the latest version of complete Hate and blasphemy. Be prepared…
Be very, very prepared…
Yeah, just finished up the bass for the coming monster. Now what’s left is to go thru all the bass that is played and see if anything needs to be fixed before considering it completely done. We are tearing down wall by wall with this recording, now we only have the vocals left. As mentioned, Jo will start doing her stuff next Thursday and it looks like J is actually starting his singing endeavors tomorrow. Things are definitely moving forward, to say the least. Tonight we will finally get all the drums and get them into the songs and swap the programmings for the real deal. That feels great as well. To finally get the tunes with the real drums is always a treat since we have listened to the programmed versions for quite some time now. There’s nothing like flesh and blood when it comes to drums, you know.
So, things are moving forward nicely and within a few weeks Dan Swanö should be able to start mixing this monster if all goes as planned. There is a chance that some videos and whatnot might surface on this site and at our forums given time, you never know.
Stay tuned for more information about the process of this masterpiece, Haters.
