And they have arrived!

The digipaks look absolutely amazing and now all the work starts with packing them so I can ship them asap this week. It sure takes its sweet time to fill out the goddamn custom notes and everything else that goes into getting these packages ready, but in the end it’s all worth it so you heroes can have your physical copy and enjoy “Death Ritual Covenant” as it should be enjoyed; on your couch with a beverage of your choice and the booklet in hand while it’s blasting full volume!

When me and the missus have got everything ready to be shipped you’ll be notified so you get an idea when it should arrive. In Sweden it takes a day or 2 for it to arrive. Europe should take something like 3-7 days while the rest of the world is anything between a week and a month (or 2) depending on your postal service.

I’d appreciate it if you let me know through theprojecthate@gmail.com when your shit arrives so I know it got there safe and sound.

There are still a bunch of digipaks (I’ll let you know when I am running out of copies.) left in case you wanna be the proud owner of this 300 copies limited edition thing. If so;

PayPal 210 SEK (that includes PP’s fee and postage/packing) to theprojecthate@gmail.com and make sure to include your address in the PayPal note, ok? I always confirm your order so contact me immediately if you haven’t heard from me in 24 hours, coz then something fucked up along the way, ok?

Thanx to all of you who bought a copy so far. I appreciate it so much.

Change of plans!

From our official Facebook page as of earlier today:

“- Not that I’m anywhere close to 200 sold copies (I’m always keeping a safety stock, apart from the copies for everyone involved in recording the album, just in case the postal service steals/loses packages as they always do; meaning there aren’t “really” 200 copies for sale anyways even though that’s the manufactured amount) but I have decided to take a chance and print 300 digipaks instead of the initially planned 200, meaning there are plenty of copies left now.

One reason for the change in quantity is that the great Close-Up Magazine is featuring TPH in their coming issue and will plug the digipak there, I was just informed of. Can’t thank them guys enough, really.

So, the post this morning about running out of digipaks has been removed since it’s not valid anymore. I will let you know if I am ever about to run out of them though, be sure of that. But for now there are copies available, obviously.

You wanna purchase a copy? This is how to do so:

Pay through PAYPAL: 210 SEK (including PayPal fee, postage and packing) to:

theprojecthate@gmail.com

Please make sure your name and address is included in your payment. And if you haven’t received a confirmation from me within 24 hours of purchase – email me immediately so we can fix it! I always confirm your order. If you wanna pay in some other way (like over Swish here in Sweden), just email me and we’ll sort it out as well, ok?

And with all this said I can tell you that I am sending everything to the manufacturing company in a day or so coz there’s no need to wait until Monday now with the change of quantity.

Again, thanx to all of you (130 people or so) who have pre-ordered. I appreciate it so fucken much.

Please spread the word on these digipaks so I might not have to see a 150 goddamn copies gather dust in my house for the remainder of 2019 and onwards. Then again, it’s a chance I’m taking. Fuck it.

Cheers, you heroes!”

So, there you go, Haters. Keep an eye on Facebook for updates on the digipak process, ok?

Sales are shit, but here we go anyways!

Hey,

On Monday, January 14th, I will send ”Death Ritual Covenant” to the digipak manufacturing company. That means it should take approximately 2 weeks to get them delivered to me, and after that I will start packing them and get them on their way to you guys who have purchased a copy (or even 2).

The sales have been shit, to be honest, and I don’t think I’ll bother with doing digipaks for eventual future TPH albums if nothing changes. It’s just not worth the hassle. It’s quite obvious that physical CD sales isn’t what it once was. Sad but true, but hey – it is what it is.

Around 100 digipaks have been pre-ordered up to this point. Thanx a fucken bunch to you 100 or so people who have bought one! But this means there’s no way I’m printing more than 200 of them now even though I hoped to be able to print 300. There’s just no point in having 150 digipaks unsold in my house, you know.

Conclusion: there are roughly some 50 copies or so left to be pre-ordered after everyone involved with the recording of the album have gotten their personal copies. I’ll let you know when I’m running out of digipaks, if that happens.

So, if you wanna be the owner of the extremely limited digipak version of “Death Ritual Covenant”, feel free to put in your order now:

Pay through PAYPAL: 210 SEK (including PayPal fee, postage and packing) to:

theprojecthate@gmail.com

Please make sure your name and address is included in your payment (if you only knew how many fucken people miss out on this quite crucial detail, haha). And if you haven’t received a confirmation from me within 24 hours of purchase – email me immediately so we can fix it! I always confirm your order. If you wanna pay in some other way (like over Swish here in Sweden), just email me at theprojecthate@gmail.com and we’ll sort it out as well, ok?

Once again, please spread this post to your friends and foes. Any help with getting the word out is much appreciated. Also, huge thanx to the mighty Seiya Ogino at Ogino Design for the picture in this post and the invaluable help with everything. Not to forget the astonishing layout for the digipak that hero Marko Saarelainen has created. You guys are amazing.

Keep up the Hate in 2019 and we’ll talk again eventually.

“Death Ritual Covenant” digipaks coming in 2019!

Hey, Haters!

As mentioned previously – digipaks for “Death Ritual Covenant” are coming and I’ll send everything to the manufacturing company in mid January, meaning they should be at my place ready to be shipped come 1st or 2nd week of February. This picture right here should give you a hint of what they’ll look like (the actual booklet is not included here obviously).

But the main reason for this post is as follows:

Quite a bunch of people have asked for physical digipaks of “Death Ritual Covenant” ever since we released it digitally in August. I wasn’t sure if it would be worth the hassle considering CD sales are seriously absolutely shit these days. I still have copies of our 2017 album around the house to no good use, you know.

So my plan was to print 300 copies of “Death Ritual Covenant” and after a week of having this announced it’s clear as day the sales need to pick up or I’ll have to lower the printed quantity.

As of this writing there are less than 100 copies pre-ordered! Impressive, huh? Sure, Christmas just rolled its ass out the door, you spent your hard earned cash on gifts and bla bla… but I’m thinking MAYBE you wanna buy a muthafucken digipak anyways? If that is the case, here’s the ordering information you need:

Pay through PAYPAL: 210 SEK (including PayPal fee, postage and packing) to:

theprojecthate@gmail.com

Please make sure your name and address is included in your payment. And if you haven’t received a confirmation from me within 24 hours of purchase – email me immediately so we can fix it! I always confirm your order. If you wanna pay in some other way (like over Swish here in Sweden), just email me and we’ll sort it out as well, ok?

Please, spread this post to your friends and foes. Any help with getting the word out is much appreciated. Also, huge thanx to the mighty Seiya Ogino at Ogino Design for the picture and invaluable help with everything. Not to forget the astonishing lay out for the digipak that hero Marko Saarelainen created. You guys rule all kinds of shit.

There we go. That was all for now. Have a great New Years Eve and thanx again for the help with making “Death Ritual Covenant” come to life in 2018.

We’ll talk again next year.

Social media will have to do with less of a presence from Your King!

Just bare with me for a sec and I’ll clarify some shit so you can all go back to your normal routines.

Social media is obviously crucial these days for promotion, especially when it comes to smaller (but incredibly genius) acts like TPH. The TPH Donation Experiments would be absolutely impossible without social media. Selling a few shirts, beanies and digipaks every now and then would also be impossible without it, and without you giving a fuck.

But you know what? Social media bores me. But more importantly it takes time away from stuff I value way, way more; such as composing music, being with my wife and so on and so forth.

The last few years I have used our Facebook page pretty much exclusively for “bigger” updates on the activities of TPH. Instagram on the other hand has been used several times a week for quite some time. Now I’ll implement the same procedure on both platforms. So… just because you don’t get informed about everything I do on the same level as before:

Be sure that I am fucken always creating music inside The Dungeon.

All. The. Time.

I live for this. I absolutely love this.

Because I am this.

But take note: as soon as I have something that craves your invaluable attention and/or input, you know I’ll make you aware of it over these mentioned platforms! But as far as small updates every now and then go… I’m taking a break from it and will devote that extra time to create music, among other things. Simply because, as I said, it’s so much more important to me. Who knows, I might feel differently somewhere down the road and get back to the über-interesting (boom!) Instagram posts several times a week. You never know, I guess.

If you wanna ask me something about TPH, just email me at theprojecthate@gmail.com. I always reply. Don’t ask any questions on Instagram or Facebook, they will go unseen.

Thanx for your time. We’ll talk again when there’s something of value to share.
