News about the digipaks!

Just got the material to proof from the manufacturing company and everything is now set to go, which means production will start tomorrow and that means I should have everything in my possession in some 2 weeks. So, I’m looking at the beginning of March, 2017, for when it’s time to pack and ship your ordered copy/copies. A little faster than initially expected actually, so that’s nice.

There are still enough copies available so if you wanna order one – feel free to do so. I have actually added some extra this time around becoz I have been informed some people are asking something like 200 Euros (WTF?) for a copy of “There Is No Earth I Will Leave Unscorched”. I don’t like that so I want everyone (or at least a few hundred of the world’s population) to be able to get a digipak without being charged a really ridiculous price for it.

200 fucken Euros?! Seriously… GTFO.

So, anyways… Here’s the information again if you wanna order a piece of TPH history (pretty much taken from the post below this one becoz I’m cool like that), and stay tuned for more updates when there’s something of significance to report. Here’s how to order:

Quite a few of you Haters have been emailing me about the digipaks as of late, letting me know that you want a copy of this gem in digipak form. I can never thank you enough for this, just like I can’t thank you enough for making this latest album a reality. I have told you this so many times over the course of recording this album and I will continue to do so for one simple reason – it’s your fucken doing, seriously. This material could have stayed intact in my home studio, but you decided differently.

I salute you all so much for that.

So, this is like the final thing happening with “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures”, putting it on CD for you guys who want it in physical shape. Here we go then: if you want a physical digipak version of “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures”, order it as follows:

PayPal: 200 SEK (postage and packaging included to anywhere in this world) to theprojecthate@gmail.com. If you wanna pay in some other way – contact me thru the same email address and we’ll work it out, ok?

Please make sure your address is included with the order. A lot of you guys usually forget about this and it makes it kinda hard for me to know where to send it.

Also, I ALWAYS confirm your order. If I haven’t done so in 24 hours – something is wrong. Email me again if so, ok?

That’s all! Help me get rid of these copies and I raise my glass in your honor for giving a shit in the first place.

If you want the digital versions, look to the right on this very site for the info you need.

Also, our Facebook page is the place to keep an eye on for minor updates about everything TPH.

Cheers, Haters!

Latest news on “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures” and its planned release!

Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures

Haters, here’s a quick (except it’s not quick at all) rundown for ya about what’s going on in the Hate Camp, so grab a beer and enjoy!

You who have followed all of my updates know that at this very moment drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren’s got but one more song to nail and then his work is done for the album. Actually, he’s already pretty much nailed that song and is just now finding the time to do some small alterations according to my wishes so the tune is a hundred percent. The work he’s done on the material is completely insane, lemme tell you that.

You’ve heard it before from me, but to be able to work with my absolute fave drummer once again is such a fucken honor. The fact that Mr. Verbeuren even found the time to do this album with TPH in the midst of being the new drummer of metal legends Megadeth is beyond comprehension, really.

I actually told Dirk that it was completely understandable if this well deserved and major opportunity for him (to join Megadeth) would make it real hard to do TPH even though I already paid him (thanx to you Haters and The TPH Donation Experiment 3). I even told him to keep the money since he’s not been paid what he deserved over the course of our albums.

He would have none of that, which speaks volumes of how incredible this guy is. Not only as a drummer but as a human being. When I grow up I wanna be Dirk. All of you should wanna be Dirk.

Sure, the Megadeth thing postponed his recordings a bit but that didn’t matter to me coz it gave me plenty of more time to analyze everything even further as far as the album material goes. And for that I am extremely happy when I hear what we have cooked up this time around.

As plural Britney Spears’ would say: “Oops, we did it again!”

Our last album, “There Is No Earth I Will Leave Unscorched” is still, without a doubt, my favorite TPH album, and it all really came full circle as far as my vision for TPH goes. It damn well took some years and a bunch of fantastic albums, but with that recording my personal goal was achieved: to make an album that is perfect – TO ME. Ms. Asp had tons to do with that, mark my words. 2 years after its release it STILL is perfect to me, so that’s a damn nice feeling, to put it mildly.

And now we have done it AGAIN?! Yes, that’s how I really feel, and when I get to work with musicians as the ones I get to work with it’s easy to take the perfect formula to another level once again, obviously. So, thank you – all of you who are involved on this coming masterpiece. You are all invaluable to me, and my gratitude is endless.

You know how I have been saying that the plans for releasing “OCACP” have always been mid-to-late 2016 unless something came in the way? There’s been a few things happening such as extremely busy schedules and whatnot on all fronts, meaning I am now looking to get it out early 2017, simply becoz I REFUSE to let go of this one until it’s perfect on all accounts and there’s no way I will hurry the mix and put any pressure on mixing guru Dan Swanö when he’s so kind as to fire up all kinds of final versions for me (you know, real mix, instrumental mix, etc…), something that he’s just doing becoz I have known and worked with him for ages. So, he’ll work on the album and deal with all of my details for as long as he needs to and has the time for it. And as I have revealed some time ago, me and Dan already kind of started mixing “OCACP”. We wanted to find what production we were looking for before the REAL work would start, and the real work starts NOW!

You won’t get too many in depth updates on the mixing process, simply becoz I wanna keep some things to myself and let them be revealed to all of you when you listen to the album for the very first time. Just let it be known that we are hard at work with completing this masterpiece now, and we will spend at least the whole of December doing so. There’s holidays and shit coming up too as you know, which takes away some time from mixing, but be sure that 2017 will start off in the most glorious way possible with the release of “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures”!

And yes, quite a few of you have asked about this… there WILL be a limited edition digipak version of the album sometime next spring. You’ll know when the pre-orders are being taken for that one, so hang in there. If you want to get this piece of musical art before that, and don’t feel like illegally download it, you can order the digital downloads directly from me by clicking the appropriate link on the front page of this very site. You can’t miss it.

You have waited patiently and you have been updated regularly since I started composing for “OCACP”, and soon the wait is over! Soon this muthafucken 70+ minute behemoth is yours!

Now we enter the final stages, so once again – a huge “THANK YOU!!!” to Jörgen and Ellinor for the amazing vocals, Dirk of Megadeth for the best drums I have ever heard, Lawrence of F.K.Ü., Johan of Amon Amarth, Erik of Cut Up and Lars of Scar Symmetry for the killer guest vocals, Lars of Candlemass for yet another batch of mindblowing guitar solos and Dan of Unisound for what will be a fantastic mix. And I won’t forget Johan at 4Sound/Örebro, without whom I’d be fucked when it comes to recording/software related problems, the mighty Toontrack (if they weren’t so awesome as to endorse me I would, among other things, have shitty sounding home recordings to work with) and the amazing Marko Saarelainen who’s been doing websites and album layouts for TPH for too many fucken years without being paid a fraction of what he is worth. All of you guys make me wanna become a better musician each and every day.

And of course YOU, the Haters, who made this possible through your donations. TPH still exist thanx to you. Have that in mind and give yourselves a round of applause. You deserve it.

I feel so at peace with the beast we have created and to see everything align now in the mix and mastering phase is so rewarding.

I can’t fucken wait to share this one with you.

We’ll talk in a bit!

Cheers!

Yes, you can!

OCACP

Every once in a while I get e-mails asking if it’s “too late to order OCACP?”. I have no idea where this confusion comes from so let me make everything clear to you… It seems like some might think that if you didn’t participate in the TPH Donation Experiment 3 you can’t get the album. That is wrong. OF COURSE you can purchase this coming masterpiece Do you want to buy the new album? Here is all the information you need as for how to get the digital versions (yes, versions – not version) as soon as it’s ready to be released in late 2016. If you rather want to wait until 2017 to get your hands on a copy of the limited edition digipak, you can do that too – BUT DO NOT ORDER A COPY OF THOSE UNTIL I MAKE IT CLEAR THEY ARE UP FOR PRE-ORDERING.

So – again then… Yes, you can order the digital versions, and I advice you to do so coz supporting true art is cool, you know.

In other “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures” news, here’s a quick update for ya. Most of the stuff you prolly already know about if you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, but hey – fuck it. Earlier this week it dawned on me… The work I have put into the coming audio display of TPH blasphemy, so far, easily surpasses anything and everything I have been involved with in my musical life up to this point. I have finally gone through what quite possibly is my final round of detail work after, literally, thousands of hours. This album is smack full with levels and layers, I’m not even sure you’ll ever discover all of it. But you’ll have quite the experience going through it, trust me. There are so many things to discover. The detail work is truly insane. You’ll see later in 2016.

But of course I’m not the only one who’s been working hard on “OCACP” even though I am the one doing the lion’s share of it.

Nope.

Jörgen has once again delivered his stuff better than anyone else could, raising the bar for death metal vocals as he does with every album we do together. I have no idea how he does it…

Ellinor’s playfulness and mindblowing vocal range just kills everything once again. What a superstar she is… Damn. I never cease to be amazed when I hear what she comes up with for TPH, or anything else we do together music wise.

Lasse Johansson of Candlemass entered The Dungeon a while back and put down his trademark guitar playing, showing the world yet again that he truly is one of the best guitarists around. I’m so honored to have him on another TPH album.

Drummer phenom Dirk Verbeuren (@dirkverbeuren on Instagram by the way) hasn’t recorded his drums yet as the gig with Megadeth kinda came in the way of the original plans, but he should be starting out shortly as far as I know. It’ll be pure joy to get his work on this material since he’s absolutely my one fave drummer of all time.

All the guest vocalists have truly handed over some spectacular work on their accounts too, for which I am extremely grateful. It’s weird how I am able to work with all these personal heroes of mine on each and every TPH album.

And as you know, all of this was made possible thanx to you Haters who made us reach the monetary goal so I could hire everyone involved and make this album happen. I salute you!

If nothing fucks up, “Of Chaos And Carnal Pleasures” will, as mentioned numerous times, be in your ears by the end of 2016. I can’t wait to start working on the mix and mastering with the legendary Dan Swanö as soon as possible.

Stay tuned for more news as we go along, but always keep an eye on our Facebook first and foremost.
