And we move forward yet again…

After spending yesterday going thru the recorded guitars and doing some fix-ups, all the Xiphos work is now done for the third track. And yeah, so is the bass. I’ll check the mentioned low-end closer for eventual shit to be replayed after I am done with the orchestral arrangements which are about halfway completed. Some of the guitars for this one were quite a bitch to nail actually, but it turned out great in the end after some frustrating sessions and insane downstroke picking de luxe. So, what we have here now is (soon) 3 completed tunes for our next album. And already we have passed 30 minutes of material, with just fucken 3 songs. Yes, I am not making it easy on myself so do not expect to hear this new album on the radio anytime soon, ok? Anyways, the process goes on and as soon as the orchestral bits are arranged for this one I am moving on to the fourth one. I can’t believe it’s gone this fast to compose for album 8 – it’s just beautiful when it happens, as mentioned before.

Stay tuned for continuous updates on everything, and once again – BUY THE DAMN SHIRT WE JUST PRINTED!

The lustrous process…

God be damned and the devil’s horns, yes. It sure is a lustrous process composing for this next album. During the week I have been in The Dungeon working on the third track for our coming magnum opus and today I wrapped up the structure for it and put down the guitars while at it. I just need to closely go through those axes to see if anything needs fixing before moving on. The next step is do dive into the remarkable abyss that is Symphobia and Reason, to add the stuff that really makes it a full TPH assault in the end. As it looks now, soon half of the material is completed, music only, for this next piece of domination. It is with great confidence that I spend insane hours and days with this material, to really make ourselves reach new musical heights. In time you will see how hard we have pushed ourselves and why I am so satisfied with what we are creating this time around.

It will be worth the wait. More so than ever. Just trust me on this. Coz you know I am right.

Cheers, Haters. And don’t forget to buy the new shirt from us.

Shirts left and more news on the writing process…

First things first. What you see to the left is a me and The Tool of Doom, Death and Domination. Yeah, that would be my beloved Xiphos, my companion in writing the best music you ever heard. Anyways, just a quick heads-up on the process incoming.

Last week I finished up the second track for the next album and it turned out excellent. I aimed for a little different approach in this one and I am very satisfied with the outcome. But now to the funny thing, as I was working with that track, putting down the final touches on it, this particular riff just downright dawned on me. So I started to work on the 3rd track right away (besides that, I have 2 more that are under construction) and suddenly a huge part of that one was composed. It’s beautiful when that shit happens. Inspiration is just pissing down on me and when I listen to what I have composed so far (and what my beloved band mates have said), I have no doubt that this will be a very natural step from “BTNA” towards another level for what we can, and will, do with the coming album. As I have stated (and you’ll hear it many more times during this process) before, we still have a very long way to go before this one is recorded and released – but keeping you updated regularly feels like the right thing to do. You who give a shit about what we do absolutely deserve it. If you have any questions about this coming album or anything else TPH-related, do not hesitate to join our forums and communicate with us. We are there for you.

Also, there are still shirts left that I’d like to get rid of. Click this link and show us your support. I sure thought we’d get rid of 60 shirts easily, but it doesn’t really look like it so far, haha… Thanx to you who already did your duty and bought one. It’s highly appreciated.

I’ll get back to composing now, coz as you know – I have an album of insanity to complete.
