Mr. Verbeuren is making it clear that the second (2 fingers shown) track, “Sulphur”, out of the 6 making up “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures” is completed. I am once again completely floored by the work Dirk does. The darkness that is this particular tune just got enhanced with his drumming on it.
I have, as you know, had the honor of working with Dirk for a few albums now, but I never cease to be amazed by his approach to my material and the inhuman things he pulls off. He truly is the best goddamn drummer out there, one who can do it all. I’m honored to call him a friend.
There’s lots more updates coming as we go down the road of completing our magnum opus, so hang in there. This album is exceeding everything I thought was possible with TPH. We are keeping the perfected formula displayed on “TINEIWLU”, and now we are perfecting it even more.
Stay tuned, Haters. And once again huge thanx to all of you who make this masterpiece a reality with your donations.
“- Dear Haters: after a long delay, the time has come for me to dig deep into “OCACP”. Having now listened to every song in detail, I can honestly say that K, E, J and the rest of the TPH hordes have once again concocted a supremely epic opus of metal mastery! It’s truly a pleasure to contribute some beats and fills to this beast of a record. As a matter of fact, drums for song number one are now done. Stay tuned for more updates coming your way shortly!”
Before rounding this post up, lemme just tell you that the work D is doing for this album is, again nothing short of absolutely mindblowing. When I heard “Blood Design” the first time with his drums I couldn’t believe my ears. And especially one part in this tune just had me stop the playback to rewind and see if what I heard was actually correct…
Even if I wanted to, I wouldn’t even be able to program drums like that. Without a doubt, that section is one of the sickest drum parts I have ever heard.
Mr. Verbeuren is one of a kind and a drum phenom among mere mortals. It is such an honor to be able to have my fave drummer of all time on yet another TPH album. Absolutely insane. I can’t say good enough words about Dirk to make him justice, really. But thanx, D – thanx for being a part of this.
There are more updates coming, so hang in there.
“Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures” is building up to destroy everything.
