So, J is about to unleash the TPH beast once again…

That’s right, the day has come for J to start recording his vocals. The first 2 days in A.R.T. Studios with Joppe Åhlén (who’s been recording J’s vocals for TPH and Torture Division for as long as we can remember) have been booked and tomorrow is when it starts. If nothing fucks up, that and next Monday are the 2 first planned sessions (of how many, you never know) for Mr. Sandström. This is something I have looked forward to for quite some time, coz when J starts putting his trademark grunts – shit explodes and everything comes together. Ruby is hard at work down in the studio in Portugal with her stuff, so the plans are working as we wanted them to all along. Let’s just hope it continues this painless. But it never does, so fuck it. A little pain never hurt no one.

J has also been instructed to shoot some videos while he’s doing his magic, and if he’s got the time for it – you’ll get some of that as we go along. It will look exactly like this and this except for a few things; the music will be new, the lyrics will be new, the studio has been relocated and everything will be better than anything you have ever heard before in your life. Besides those things – it’s all the same. This also means superhero Lasse Johansson of Candlemass fame will bring the exact guitar he used on “Nightfall” (as reported before, but this can’t be told enough times) and accompany J as soon as the time comes, for some guest work. Be sure I’ll get that on tape for my personal collection of historic moments.

In related news, I am working on the material day after day after day, making sure it’s all perfect in the end. What I have poured into this album as far as determination, blood, sweat and tears is just insane. And it shows. You will see what I mean when you guys, who have helped us record this monster, get to hear it. You didn’t help out with The TPH Donation Experiment? It’s not too late for you to find out what you need to do to get it anyways. There’s an updated information thing for ya right at this location, and I suggest you take your time to read it, honor it and respect it. And while you’re at it, spread the word.

Don’t forget the signs. Don’t forget to follow the process. Don’t forget to support this cause.

Now I’ll go back to working on this masterpiece… Completion is in sight even if it’s quite some work left… And it’s all pure bliss.
