“DEATH RITUAL COVENANT” IS RELEASED AT THE WITCHING HOUR, AUGUST 17TH, 2018! ORDER IT NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY!

Find out how to purchase this album at the bottom of this post. But first, let’s go through a few things:

– If you already ordered this beast/participated in The TPH Experiment 4 but haven’t gotten an e-mail from me with download instructions by the time you read all this; please contact me so we can work it out. Maybe you changed email address during the time it took to complete this masterpiece and forgot to inform me? Maybe something else fucked up along the way? Just contact me at theprojecthate@gmail.com, send over your PayPal receipt and we’ll fix it as soon as see your email, ok?

– No, I won’t send your webzine or web radio station etc. etc. a free copy for review/air play. Simply becoz I don’t care if you want to cover it in any way, shape or form. I obviously haven’t made this album for that purpose. If you want to review it or play it on the air, purchase a copy and do so. Or you could always be a total cunt and steal if from the Internet. Whatever you think is the right thing to do. So, bottom line: don’t ask me for free copies.

– There’s no need to email me to let me know that someone’s cunty behavior resulted in “Death Ritual Covenant” being leaked for people to illegally download. Let’s just applaud the ones who actually give a shit and buys it.

– A bunch of you have emailed me asking about physical CD’s/digipaks of “Death Ritual Covenant”. If there will be such things made it will be late this year or early 2019. Physical sales aren’t exactly what they used to be and it’s so fucken pointless to have a huge bunch of digipaks gathering dust on a shelf at my place becoz it’s close to impossible to sell, say, 300 copies. We’ll see how this pans out later on. I guess I need some serious feedback on the issue to see if it’s all worthwhile doing it. But we’ll get to that later, I guess, so no need to comment on it at this point in time.

Before I continue I want to extend my deepest goddamn gratitude to the following extra-ordinary people:

Jörgen Sandström (vocals) – The work you have done for me for close to 20 years now with TPH is mindblowing. With every goddamn album we do together you get even better, which is ridiculous considering you were always the best fucken grunter to begin with. And still you top yourself time and time again. Thanx for being my best fucken friend and for being remarkable on all accounts, not only vocal wise. I don’t ever wanna do this without you, kråny.

Ellinor Asp (vocals) – Not only did you storm into TPH territory in 2014, guns blazing. Oh no, you did so with an unmatched voice, otherworldly talent and a striking personality; making it possible for me to bring TPH to levels I never thought possible. Together with Mr. Sandström, Mr. Verbeuren and Mr. Johansson you have made my musical vision complete. Just like with J, I don’t ever wanna do this without you.

Dirk Verbeuren (drums) – You have always been one of my very few fave drummers, and to be able to utilize your services for yet another album without even being able to pay you your worth is beyond me. There is not a single drummer in this world that I want within the music I make for TPH but you, sir. The way you approach the material I hand to you, as well as how you are as a human being, is fucken second to none. I take a bow.

Lasse Johansson (guitar solos) – Since I was but a teenager I have looked up to you as a guitarist, and after quite a few gigs together when I have had the honor of helping your band Candlemass out, not to mention the 4 albums for TPH that you have given your insane solos to, I’m sure you know this quite well by now. You are one of the coolest and most humble muthafuckers around, and one of the best guitarists to ever walk this Earth. It’s truly a privilege to have your solos in my music. Cheers, you hero!

Johan Hegg and Lawrence Mackrory (vocals) – Once again you two have contributed killer fucken vocals for TPH. Not only are you bastards amazingly awesome fellas, your vocals don’t exactly suck either. I raise my glass to you both for being a part of TPH on yet another album. Don’t be surprised if I ask you guys to help out again down the line; I simply like to work with the best.

Dan Swanö (mixtering) – I have known and have had the pleasure of working with you since the early goddamn 90’s! And every time a new collaboration is under way it’s a gigantic pleasure, especially when it comes to TPH. You have helped me so much over the years and the productions you give my music are outstanding. I have no idea how you are going to top the sound you have given us on “Death Ritual Covenant”, but I know you will somehow if it comes to that. I’m very happy to have you by my side while I explore this music thing even further, wherever the fuck it takes us.

Marko Saarelainen (album layout/website) – The things you do for TPH have always been remarkable and you’ll always be a huge part of this entity that is TPH. Thank you once again for creating astonishing graphics and layouts for this album, just like you have been for close to 2 decades. You are fucken phenomenal in every aspect, sis. Always was, always will be. May your penis by a shrine for future generations!

Seiya Ogino (graphics/artwork/website) – The artwork you have created for “Death Ritual Covenant” is fantastic and then some. Not to mention the insane professionalism, dedication and (unpaid) assistance you offer all the time when it comes to TPH; Facebook banners, avatars, ads, Instagram story videos and so on and so forth. I’m speechless. I can never spill enough beer on you for everything you do.

The Haters – Without you, our 4 last albums wouldn’t have been made. I never thought it would be possible to actually get such a fan base. 4 times in a row you have donated cash so I can pay everyone involved and actually record and release my music in the way it deserves to be recorded and released. Quite a few years ago I had it with the record industry and wanted to see if this could be done on my own with the help from you guys… Obviously, it worked out. Again, again, again and again. You have heard it a million times; but TPH wouldn’t exist if as it is today if it weren’t for you. Thank you so fucken much for the incredible support. “Death Ritual Covenant” is your reward.

ATTENTION, WORLD! If you feel like the work I have put into this album is worth something, and think it’s not a ludicrous idea that I actually get paid for the insane amount of hours I have invested in this album and becoz you obviously want my music, well… then:

Order all 4 (yes, FOUR!) digital versions for a mere 150 SEK by PayPal’ing that sum to theprojecthate@gmail.com and you’ll get an email as soon as I see your payment with instructions as for how to download one or all of these 4 versions:

1. CD MIX (FLAC)
2. CD MIX (MP3)
3. FULL DYNAMIC MIX (FLAC)
4. FULL DYNAMIC MIX (FLAC, INSTRUMENTAL VERSION)

The money that comes in will be spent on new gear to further enhance my musical vision that is TPH. I think that’s quite fucken reasonable.

Last off – “Death Ritual Covenant” is dedicated to the people who truly value what this is about and made it happen through their donations. And it’s dedicated to YOU who’s buying it now after reading this.

Enjoy it, Haters.

Getting closer to completion…

So, Haters!

This is where we are at. If all goes well, and as it looks right now, “Death Ritual Covenant” will be completed during July, 2018. With all the small additional things that comes with the album’s release, my hopes are for it to be presented to you sometime in August then. It might be later, or it might go according to plan; we’ll simply have to wait and see how everything pans out. Have in mind it’s vacation times and whatnot right now, so…

I am incredibly satisfied with what we are creating and if you ever dug us before, well, you’ll definitely dig this beast.

While we continue to work on completing “DRC”, you guys stay tuned for more news as I have them.

Be well, and huge thanx for the support!

All work and no play…

Wreaking havoc, mixing audio blasphemy and generally creating a beyond fantastic album once again, that’s what’s up right now.

Me and Mr. Dan Swanö are halfway into the process of completing “Death Ritual Covenant”. 3 songs pretty much done for this round of the session. But there’s still quite some ways to go before it’s officially done. If all goes well, it WILL be out this summer. So, stay tuned for this beast.

Oh, one more thing…

If you wanna pre-order the digital versions (yes, versions) for a mere 150 SEK, you can simply PayPal that sum to theprojecthate@gmail.com and you’ll be on the list for absolute destruction when the time comes.

Not a bad deal at all, huh?

Once again, huge thanx to all of you who have made this album a reality through the TPH DONATION EXPERIMENT 4.
