Small recording process update!

K is  making huge progress with the bass. There’s like 1 song left or so, then he’ll go back and listen closely for eventual playing fuck-up’s and whatnot. It sounds fucken massive with the bass on this shit, that’s for sure. Ampeg is the muthafucken boss, we tells ya.

We’ll see what kind of sound we end up with in the end but this is definitely what we are aiming for; a lot of fucken “clonk clonk” and brutality. And thanx to  Mr. Dan Swanö for lending K this terrific bass to put down the thunder with:

K with the bass

It seems like J will start doing his vocals this weekend too, so things are progressing nicely.

Stay tuned for more updates as we go along.

Not so brief update for the early November

It’s been a little silent here as of late (if you don’t count the activity at the forums, a place we always suggest you check out as we are there on a daily basis), but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing going on in the Hate Camp. We actually have shitloads of stuff in the making and now it’s about time we reveal most of it.

We have signed a new album deal, which feels really, really good. Vic Records from The Netherlands is a strong up’n’coming label that finally got their shit going. They have shown interest in TPH for quite some time and now when the label is rolling we gladly accepted their offer and decided to be a part of their roster. Head honcho Roel is an old acquaintance of K‘s which definitely played a huge part when it came down to signing to a label for the next album(s). We believe Vic Records has the tools to finally give TPH the marketing and promotion we deserve. It’s a great feeling to know how much Roel and his company burns for what we do musically, and also knowing that we are a priority for them feels fantastic. We definitely have a nice vibe for this collaboration and our first album for Vic Records is in the making as we announce this relationship of satanic proportions and unholy bodily fluids. Eh, we don’t even know what that means. Anyways, here are some plans for you, straight from the mouth of Hate.

Vocalist Jörgen Sandström will start doing his vocals in a few weeks or so and will work with them from time to time during the rest of the year and probably for a bit of 2009 depending on how much time he can get on his hands. Once he enters the studio he does his stuff faster than a blastbeat so just keep your fingers crossed he can wrap his vocal sessions up asap.

Drums will be done in Örebro, Sweden, January 2009. We are checking back and forth for a weekend that will suit us all and we are getting there. Just some final details to nail, but January is when the drums will be recorded and this will happen in, a studio owned by Saint Deamon, ex-Dionysus drummer Ronny Milianosonovabitch-something… We are definitely looking forward to record those toms with him.

Jonna‘s vocals will be done during 4 days in January, 2009 as well. Once again we will enter vocal coach Robban’s (whom we have worked with during the past 2 albums) studio and bring down the heavens and whatnot with some diabolical serenades courtesy of Ms. Jo. We are working on the final dates with this too, but January is determined.

Michael will put down his bass in his home studio whenever he’s got the time. And you all know Michael – there will be some insane bass work done.

This means that we should have everything completed to be delivered to Dan Swanö sometime in late January, early February if everything goes down as planned. We have lived with this material for quite some time now and we have made small adjustments to it all the time, to perfect it even more (perfect perfection, does that even work?). We can guarantee you one fantastic piece of blasphemy when Vic Records release this piece sometime in May/June (if all the schedules work out as planned now). It’s definitely the most brutal stuff we have ever written, and at the same time the most beautiful. We are so confident with these 7 tunes it’s not even sane. We can’t wait to get all of this out to you loyal Haters who always supported us. And to have Vic Records hand it out to you feels like a blessing at this stage as they can actually get the album out to stores with their distribution (something we are not exactly spoiled with).

We are also planning to shoot quite some videos during the rest of the recording (wonder where this will end up in the eventually? Hint hint), and we plan to be able to show you guys some of the process at some stage. And eventually we might hand you a little more than just small clips. You’ll see…

So, now you know what’s up. We are impatiently waiting to finalize this piece and bring it upon the world. Just to see the very same world perish in flames due to said album’s Domination.

And again, don’t forget the forums. Updates happen more often there than on this page.

No more orders for the new shirts

Thanks to each and everyone who ordered one (or two) and showed their true support. Hail!

So if all goes as planned, everyone who placed their orders should start receiving their shirts within the following three weeks.

Late June update

We have been a little silent in here, for no good reason, so we thought it’s about time to tell you what’s up. All of you know that there’s been a fucken impossibility to find the latest album “In Hora Mortis Nostræ” if you are not ordering it directly from us, right? We knew that StormVox had very limited resources and all, but never did we expect this small an effort on their part to get it out. Not content with the situation we have now walked away from StormVox, on good terms. We might work with them somewhere down the road, we might not, that’s not important right now though. We will now start looking for a new label and we have the flashiest promo packages around just waiting to be sent out.

This interferes nothing with the new album (at least not right now) at the moment since we have had the plans for album 6 lined up for quite some time. We are still finishing up the lyrics for the remaining songs and Jo is hard at work with her stuff for the songs that are already completed lyricwise.

All the rhythm guitars are completed as of some weeks ago. We have also started to get some of the guest stuff completed and inserted into the songs and it fucken kills. There will be some prominent guest musicians (and some fantastically gifted ones you prolly never heard of) on this one, that’s for sure. There’s going to be quite a bunch of guests and friends chipping in to what will be the darkest and most ferocious album in our career. You know this is true too.

We are planning to have Mojjo put down the drums this fall, we need to chill out this summer, you know. But first we need to secure a record deal so we have a budget to work with. Jörgen will most likely record his vocals in Stockholm and we are definitely planning to record Jo’s with Robban, as we have done on the past 2 studio albums. But that’s not happening just yet, as mentioned.

Just hang in there, we will keep you informed about the label search and recording plans as we go along.

Just so you know, we have never sounded better than what we do now. In time you will experience it first hand.

Cheers, Haters.

Petter S. Freed leaves The Hate

“As of today, May 29th, I’m no longer a member of TPH. I’ve had lots of pleasant musical moments this far in my life. Many of them has been being locked up in a 200 square ft flat with K. The magic that went down between 2002-2008 in that flat is something I will always look back at with a smile. I also smile when I think of other things we did, that had nothing to do with music. But I’ll leave those things out for now I think. It’s been a pleasure playing with those guys (and girl) since they truly are gifted in a special way all of them. K is so good at writing/producing this kind of music it’s almost ridiculous, writing with him has been a walk in the park cause we just connect.

J is one insane vocalist. When we recorded the last album he had moments where he sounded so good both me and K was about to leave the room. Crying. And most of the time he just said “well, it’s ok I guess…”. It’s not just ok J, it’s top notch. World class.

And Jonna, the beautiful little bastard. I must confess though, when K took her into the band I never though she could do anything near what Mia did before her. Fuck me sideways I was wrong. And she’s growing every time she enters a studio it seems. “New” guys Mike and Mojjo joined in and as always I was skeptical. Fucked sideways again. I don’t even have to mention how extremely talented those fuckers are. Marko (webmaster) doesn’t play any instrument, but he’s in the fuckin’ band and he rules. Supreme.

And the last member of the band, the most important: The fans. If there were a professional fans league, the TPH fans would win every fuckin’ year. The ones that has been there from the start (you know who you are) and the ones that has been comin’ along during the time: You are the shit that makes this band tick. In a very serious way. You all rule (now send me a Zippo).

So, why quit? It’s simple, I just don’t feel like doing it anymore. I’ve lost the TPH vibe somewhere. I don’t know why, and I don’t know where. But it’s fuckin’ gone. From the inside, I can say that the future for TPH is brighter then ever, the new stuff sounds demonic and K is pumped as usual to bring domination.

This is gettin’ extremely dramatic, so I’ll just say thanks to everyone involved and from now on I’ll follow this band as a fan, not guitarist.

Cheers / Mazza”

After 6 years and 3 studio albums together Petter, aka Mazza, has asked to be relieved of his duty in The Project Hate MCMXCIX. We wish we could start up some drama here and make it all look like the world’s most fucked up rock’n’roll circus, but we can’t, haha… Thing is, we part the best of friends. We are on exactly the same terms as in the past, the only thing that has changed is that Mazza is no longer a part of the band. Mazza hasn’t been much involved at all (we still credit him for 2 or 3 riffs though, haha) with the writing process for the next studio album, simply becoz he hasn’t been motivated. So, seriously, we weren’t very surprised that Mazza felt he could as well step down from his position as guitarist in TPH. We wanna thank him whole heartedly for the fantastic work he’s done with us over the years, we might very well not have sounded as awesome as we do today hadn’t Mazza been involved in building up the Christ-hating machine you know as TPH over the last 3 albums he was a part of.

Tack som fan, Mazza. We love you. Well, Jörgen doesn’t, but me and Jo do, the rest of the guys don’t know you too well, haha…

This leads us to the following… It’s obvious that we need someone to replace Mazza, and who better than the one guy who’s been writing the coming TPH album together with me? Yes, that’s right, welcome Anders Bertilsson (Ruin, Coldworker) to The Hate. The choice was obvious. Anders and myself accidentally found out about a year ago that we work very well together, one thing led to another and all of a sudden we were writing material for The Project Hate MCMXCIX. And since Mazza didn’t show much interest in being a part of it, we naturally continued writing together. And continued. And continued. Until one day we realized that we had actually completed 7 songs. 7 tunes that sound better than anything we have ever done in the past, and fuck knows we have done some fantastic shit. So, it was a no-brainer to ask Anders to join The Hate as he pretty much already was in the family.

This is what Anders has got to say:

“After drinking/riding our horses of steel/drinking a bit more, and working on the upcoming TPH album together with my brother (bonded by beer) Lord K Philipson, it’s an honor to be asked to join The Project Hate MCMXCIX. Being a long time fan of the music, and sharing many of the same musical views as K, it’s amazing to be an official part of the band. A band consisting of insanely skilled people all around. Hate arise, Jesus dies…”

That’s where we are today. We are still finishing up the lyrics for the next album (halfway there) and will soon start to plan the recording, which is a major job to do. But we love it.

So, to finish this off: Thanx for everything, Mazza. Vi syns på krogen, din jävla dåre. Welcome to The Hate, Anders. We are very, very happy with you being a part of The Project Hate MCMXCIX.

A new era of Domination has begun.
