All rise, Your King is back!

Last time we talked was on October 3rd last year.  It’s been a while, dammit. How are you guys doing? Awesome, I hope.

So, why the absence, you ask… I’ve been busy, obviously. Busy enjoying life with the missus, busy working the day job, busy being amazing, busy bla bla bla. And on top of all this, I’ve been extremely fucken busy working on the planned next TPH album; the 15th platter in our rich discography. Number FIFTEEN, people! It’s fucken insane when you think about it. But here we are.

So, let’s try and make this one a reality now, yes?

You know what this means; the 7th installment of THE TPH DONATION EXPERIMENT is now up and running!

If you wanna help reach the $10000 monetary goal needed to pay everyone involved for their efforts and bring this next recording to life, here’s all the info you need: 

– Donating 150 SEK will give you the following digital versions when the album is completed: CD MIX (MP3), CD MIX (FLAC), HDR MASTER 44,1 24 BIT (FLAC), HDR MASTER (INSTRUMENTAL FLAC). Links to the downloads will be e-mailed to you upon release.

– You can of course donate more if you feel like it. Every goddamn cent pushes us further and faster towards the goal.

– Donations are preferably made through PayPal to Please make a note saying ”HAIL TPH!” with the payment. Or you could just say something else. Also, I will ALWAYS confirm your donation within 24 hours of receiving it, so if you don’t hear from me within that time frame, well… then something fucked up. Simply e-mail me at, ok? If my fellow Swedes prefer another paying method, you holler at me through the same email address.

– I will, as always, update you through social media with every $1000 level reached, and if it so happens that we do not reach the target… Well, then the world will fucken explode. It’ll be real simple; this Experiment will run until we’re there. Be it 2 months, be it 6, be it a year. It doesn’t matter, this album needs to be heard.

It’s a real pain in the asshole to get everyone’s schedule to align when it comes to TPH, that’s for sure. But here’s where we are right now as far as the process is going:

– I have completed all of my guitars and bass just as I have all the electronics and orchestral work. You know I always mention that quite some work has gone into this with each and every album? Well, I took it all to another level this time around. I couldn’t be happier with what I have composed. I truly am a genius of gigantic proportions. Boom!

– Chief Grunter Jörgen Sandström’s put down everything but 1 track when it comes to his vocals. And it’s not like I need to tell you that it sounds spectacular as always. But it sounds spectacular as always.

– Female wonder Ellinor Asp will start tracking her demos as we speak, and the plan is for her to finalize her work come March/April. I can’t wait for her lunacy to grace the material and bring it to levels I didn’t think was possible.

Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg, this beautiful fucken fella, did some fantastic guest vocals for one of the tracks a while ago. I had these parts that I actually specifically wrote for him in one of the tracks without even knowing if he’d wanna do a guest spot again. But naturally he came over and nailed it and then some!

– Lead guitarist Lasse Johansson of Candlemass fame has once again agreed to enter The Dungeon and record his magic for all the tunes. He’ll be over as soon as possible and I couldn’t be happier about it.

– Drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren will start tracking the drums this coming week and the plan is for him to be done with everything by the end of April. In case you don’t know, he’s kinda occupied with some other band touring the world at all times. The fact that he even manages to squeeze in time for a project like TPH once again… it fucken blows my mind.

– Album 15 will have 6 tracks and the running time will be very close to 80 minutes.

– This recording will, as always, be mixed and mastered by myself and legend/superhero Dan Swanö of Unisound fame.

– The title for this 15th beast has been decided upon since quite some time back actually and I will reveal it further down the road.

– Killer artist Seiya Ogino of Ogino Design will once again handle the artwork and packaging, just like he did for our last album.

Looking at the names above, it blows my mind the kind of people I get to work with when it comes to TPH.

My plan is to have everything ready for mix come the summer months. I can’t be any more specific coz maybe someone’s computer implodes, World War III breaks out or whatever and the recording process will be a bit delayed, but now you at least know the plan. I will keep you updated at all times when there’s something of significance to report so you’re in the loop, ok? Also, our social media platforms will be updated with every reached $1000 level, so keep an eye on those pages.

So, that’s where we are at, Haters! Could you please be so kind and make The 7th TPH DONATION EXPERIMENT a success sooner rather than later so I don’t have to deal with the goddamn stress for too long, haha… I never, ever, take any of this for granted. You know this by now. But I am more hesitant than ever that this will be a success considering the state of the world. If we do not get to the goal (despite what I said earlier) I will, as promised with every Experiment, give the donations to our local cat shelter.

But if we eventually reach the monetary target I can guarantee you that your reward for supporting my work with TPH will show in the end result.

Spread the word, and I thank you so much for your invaluable support.

As I have said before; You are all TPH.

/ Your King
