Embrace the pending apocalypse!

Since it’s been a week, here’s a quick update on what’s up in the Hate Camp in case you’re wondering. Not any drastic news compared to last time but further progress has been achieved in the ongoing mixing process of “Death Ritual Covenant”.

We are very much nearing completion now which feels fantastic!

Me and Mr. Swanö at Unisound AB are hard at work on pretty much a daily basis in the quest of wrapping this recording up, and as mentioned; we’re soon there. If it continues like this you’ll finally get to experience “DRC” sometime in (late) August. I can’t fucken wait to let you guys hear it…

We have definitely created something spectacular here. “DRC” is very dark with a few glimpses of light. And more darkness on top of that. The stuff that myself, Jörgen, Ellinor, Dirk, Lasse and the guests have provided is absolutely mindblowing. I couldn’t be any happier, really. And the production from Swanö absolutely slays! As mentioned a million times before, to work with these people involved is a fucken gift. I salute all of you for making my musical vision complete, as well as raising my glass to you heroes who made this recording possible. Can’t stress that enough. “DRC” wouldn’t be a real thing without you, bastards.

So, on behalf of one of my Ibanez Xiphoses and myself; thanx a fucken bunch for supporting TPH after almost 2 decades. Now I go back to giving my full attention to “Death Ritual Covenant” and we’ll talk soon again when we’re even closer to the finish line!

Oh, if you wanna pre-order the digital versions of this coming beast for a mere 150 SEK, you can simply PayPal that sum to and you’ll be on the list for absolute destruction when the time comes.

Be well, Haters.

Working our asses off!

Obviously, this is the look of focus and endless determination. Sitting inside The Dungeon with headphones on, paying attention to every little detail within the music.

There might be a bit of insanity involved as well, I guess.

I can’t even begin to fathom how many hours/days/weeks/months I have spent over the last year looking exactly like this on the journey of creating and completing “Death Ritual Covenant”. And to be able to do this thanx to you guys who made the 4th TPH Donation Experiment a success is invaluable to me. I raise my glass in your honor.

With that out of the way, I just wanna let you Haters know that we are moving forward big time now with this last stretch of finalizing this album. If nothing fucks up I’m positive we will be done with “DRC” by the end of July! This means you’ll get to hear what we have accomplished sometime in (probably late) August since there’s quite a few things to arrange apart from just getting the album ready. You know; proofreading the lyrics in the booklet and accompanying layout texts a couple of hundred times (and still most likely miss out on some typo that we’ll discover a year later, goddamnit!). Minor things like that.

So, keep your fingers crossed things will continue to go as smooth as it has up to this point, ok?

Once again I wanna thank Dan Swanö of Unisound AB for the incredible work he’s done so far. This production easily ranks up among the best we’ve ever had. I truly love working with Dan. The way he approaches the material and enhances it is just second-to-none. Thanx, D! You’re a hero in the flesh.

If you wanna pre-order the digital versions (yes, versions) for a mere 150 SEK, you can simply PayPal that sum to and you’ll be on the list for absolute destruction when the time comes.

Now you know where we’re at. We’ll talk soon again.
