Cover art for “Death Ritual Covenant” and new merch available for pre-ordering!

I know you have waited to see what will grace our 12th album art wise. The amazing Seiya Ogino of Ogino Design has fired up this incredible piece that you can see now. I can’t thank the guy enough for his insane professionalism and dedication towards the TPH vision. His creation perfectly displays everything I want said graphics wise with “DRC”. To put it mildly, if you’re in need of some help with websites, merchandise, album covers or whatnot – contact Seiya right away! Even though the cover is now designed by someone else than our longtime artist Marko Saarelainen, this doesn’t mean Marko’s not involved with this, not at all. Marko will take care of the rest of the packaging that comes with the album. It will be absolutely glorious, trust me on this.

And in celebration of revealing the cover, we also have shirts up for pre-ordering! This design is obviously a variation of the album cover and if I may say so – this is our best looking shirt yet! Once again Seiya’s done some killer work. Just check it out and then read on for all the pre-ordering information you might need.

The shirts then… there will be 4 different versions, as can be seen above (duh) and I’ll take pre-orders for these during the whole of February, meaning they will be printed and delivered during the first half of March if nothing fucks up in the process. I have told you this before, but the reason I do this pre-order thing is – I obviously don’t make much money off of TPH, which prevents me to print a huge batch of shirts in various sizes just to have them laying around unsold at the end of the day. By pre-ordering you make it possible for me to see how many shirts I can order from the manufacturing company without worrying about bankruptcy. Sure, this always makes for some delay in the deliveries between payment and actual shipping, but I simply can’t work it any other way. I’m sure you understand and are ok with this DIY crap I have to deal with. The downside of being a small-time band, I guess, haha…

Here are the technicalities for both the shirt and how to go about to order:
 
Shirt brand: Fruit Of The Loom (Super Premium). Make sure you are aware of what sizes are available with each color of the shirt. And these are the designs:
 
BLACK w/WHITE PRINT (available sizes S-5XL)
WHITE w/BLACK PRINT (available sizes S-5XL)
RED w/BLACK PRINT (available sizes S-3XL)
BLACK w/GREY PRINT (available sizes S-5XL)
 
Price is 220 SEK/shirt and payment is made thru PayPal. I have raised the price from the usual 200 SEK since postage has gone up and people always forget/don’t give a fuck about PayPal’s fee when they pay. This way their fee is covered and you don’t have to think about it. If you’re in Sweden and want to pay in some other way, you e-mail me at theprojecthate@gmail.com.
 
So, PayPal your money to: theprojecthate@gmail.com and make sure you write your name and address with the payment as well as making sure it says EXACTLY which version(s) of the shirt you want and what size, according to the descriptions above. Your note should look like this:
 
1 BLACK/WHITE (XL) AND 1 RED/BLACK (M). Send to *name and address*
 
Also, I ALWAYS confirm your order, so if you haven’t heard from me in 24 hours – something is fucked. Contact me immediately if so, ok? A few more things about these shirts… the print might differ a little bit in size in real life compared to the pictures included here, but we always aim to print as large as possible. Also, the actual shirt colors might not look exactly as shown here, but you prolly already know this.
 
That should do it for now. Now excuse me, I have an album to complete!

Order now, dammit!

It’s time to point it out again… Yes, there are STILL physical copies available of the latest masterpiece. Record sales are obviously through the roof these days, huh… And there’s always the downloading (left hand) path if you prefer that. So, here you go as far as ordering instructions go for both versions:

DIGIPAK:

Put your hard-earned 200 SEK (postage and packing included) thru PayPal to theprojecthate@gmail.com and be the proud owner of this gem. As long as I don’t tell you that they are sold out, then there are copies available for your purchase, ok? When they are sold out, they are sold out and no more copies will be printed. As for now, there’s enough of them to build a couple of (small) inverted crosses at least. Make the note with your payment say “DIGIPAK” and PLEASE make sure your name and address is in there too. It’s fascinating how many people miss out on that tiny detail.

Do you prefer the digital way of listening to your shit? Read on…

DIGITAL DOWNLOADS:

The digital versions (3 of them even, you can find more info about this to the right) are 150 SEK through PayPal to theprojecthate@gmail.com. Make the note say “OCACP DOWNLOAD”. Whichever version you end up buying it’ll be some of your best invested cash ever. Trust me on that. And I ALWAYS confirm your orders, so if you haven’t heard anything from me within 24 hours – contact me immediately coz then something has fucked up and we need to un-fuck it immediately. That’s how I work shit.

Huge thanx to all of you who have bought one version or the other. It means the world to me. Please spread the word too, by the way. That means – share this on your goddamn Facebook page. Or something. Whatever you do in terms of helping TPH out, I appreciate it more than you know.

Until there’s something of significance to report…

KEEP HATING!

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!
