– On October 9th I’m sending the orders to the printing company and it will take them some 2-3 weeks to get the shirts to me.

– I’ll start sending everything out to you as soon as they are packed, which should be around the start of November, if not earlier. I will keep you informed during the process as always.

– If you live in a shady country as far as your postal service goes, I recommend you pay for insured mail. If you want that, contact me so I can check the extra cost, coz it varies from country to country.

Thanx for the insane support, Haters.

This means I start to take your orders… NOW!

Unholy fuck, yes!

”Abominations of the Ageless” is now being mastered!

A week or 2 ago when I told you that the album was mixed I focused on explaining to you the album’s ending, as it’s very important to me. Now I’ll dive a little bit deeper into what you’re about to experience with our 15th album, ok?

Today I sent our new record to the great Dan Swanö of Unisound for the mastering process, and the weight lifted off my shoulders by doing this is fucken downright amazing.

You know that I always work insanely hard on our stuff, but this has been a completely different beast altogether. I have never spent this much time on mixing a recording as I have done with “Abominations of the Ageless”.

I am so insanely satisfied with the result and it’s been a tremendous journey working with Dan’s fantastic production and his invaluable assistance. The unfathomable amount of hours that has gone into adjusting every single detail would put a normal human being in a mental institution.

To hear Dan Swanö say “- That fucken detail work you have done… I get teary-eyed!” is a reward I treasure more than he’ll ever know. But fuck, I guess he knows now. Thank you, Dan. For the 3+ decade friendship and your audio magic.

I have fucken lived and breathed this material for longer than I can remember, and the fact that I get a huge smile on my goddamn face every time I hear the tunes, still, is assuring me that I have done absolutely everything within my power to perfect this monster.

I am so, so proud of what “Abominations of the Ageless” is.

As I have said a gazillion times before; the fact that I can do this shit at this level since a decade or so back… having the monetary input from some 200 people to be able to pay everyone involved with the recordings… well…

I will never, fucken ever take it for granted. I can never stress that enough. It’s fucken insane.

I am truly one lucky fucken bastard to have this support from you guys, time and time again. As long as I can physically compose and have this from you people, TPH will go on. It’s really that simple. You make it possible. Do not ever forget that.

I won’t.

This might sound arrogant, but I obviously compose TPH for myself. I have never for a second thought: “- I wonder if the Haters will like this…”. It’s absolutely fantastic if you do, for sure, but this must be done for myself.

I need this.

I am this.

With this mindset… to see the way you back me up financially with every album without hearing a single note in advance… it’s fantastic and I can’t seriously be more thankful. Sure, you know this, but it bears repeating. You deserve it.

About the coming album…

Do not expect “Abominations of the Ageless” to be anything different than what you’re used to. I already reinvented the wheel when I started TPH some 24 years ago, I’m not interested in doing it again. All I care about is to create something that is worthy of being called TPH and push myself as hard as I can, playing and composing wise.

I need to go forward, I need to work harder, I need to go further.

Every. Goddamn. Time.

“Abominations of the Ageless” is the fucken pinnacle of this mindset.

The work that Jörgen, Ellinor, Dirk and Lasse have put in is once again absolutely astonishing. I can’t believe I get to work with these people each and every time.

Thank you guys, I fucken love each and every one of you.

The same goes to production guru Dan Swanö, Johan Hegg (backing vocals) and Seiya Ogino (artwork and layout) of course.

You are all fucken absolute champions.

“- So, if the album is done, what’s taking so fucken long!? Let us have it already!?”, I hear you say.

Well, there’s more stuff going into this than “just” getting the mix and mastering done, obviously.

Trust me, as soon as everything is ready you will have it in your inboxes.

I said September, and September it will be. That’s as exact as I can be actually. But you’ll have it this month unless the world goes completely Armageddon on us. I guess you’ll notice whatever comes first.

Just hang in there. The wait is soon over.

Last off, to you who made it possible to make “Abominations of the Ageless” a reality through your donations; you are a very special breed and I, once again, thank you wholeheartedly.

Failure is not an option.

“Abominations of the Ageless” will be the muthafucken testament to that.

Mission accomplished!

So, ” Abominations of the Ageless” is mixed! You definitely didn’t see that coming, huh?

Me neither, to be honest.

But hell, that’s what happens when you’re on vacation and spend some 12-14 hours a fucken day for a few weeks, determined to finalize my most important work to date.

There’s a reason I said “my most important work to date”.

First off, I don’t do this. But now I do.

I believe in letting people know how much I appreciate them while they are alive instead of making social media posts about them when they are gone. I go out of my way to make sure they know how grateful I am for their presence and impact in my life. Everyone has their own way of working things. You can do both. Or neither. There’s no wrong or right in this matter. This is simply how I choose to do it.

I have thought about this for quite some time during the mixing of this album; “Should I bring this up? Is it necessary?”

For you to understand where “Abominations of the Ageless” is coming from, I need to share the following with you. To me, it’s absolutely necessary.

In 2022, one of the most important human beings in my life passed away.

I had the privilege of meeting this man for the first time roughly 30 years ago, and he immediately took me under his wings; “big brother’ing” me, if you will.

Even though I thought I did, I knew exactly nothing about nothing up until this point. Bottom line: he, together with my beautiful wife Kathrin, has made me into the man I am today.

He taught me so much over the decades I had the privilege to know him, and he wasn’t hesitant about letting me know how proud he was of my evolution. Both personally and musically.

One of the things he always told me was that he saw I needed some guidance early on, but he never intended for it to come to the point where he was in “second place”, and then he laughed his trademark laugh. He “never meant for me to become this cocky and unbearable”, he often said, always following up with that laughter.

I know he was proud. And he knew how incredibly thankful I am for what he did for me.

I am extremely fortunate to have had him in my life. And he will continue to be in my life for as long as I breathe.

He was never in second place.

The way that I dealt with the news of his passing was to go into The Dungeon and… compose.

And compose… and compose…

Out of this came the most important musical piece I have ever written; the last part of the last song on “Abominations of the Ageless”, entitled “And this too shall pass”.

From time to time, the way this album ends still breaks me when I listen to it as it is written in his honor and to his memory. I placed the guitar pick that I used for this part on top of his casket at his funeral.

I’m not telling you this because I am looking for sympathy. I’m not telling you this because I think my grief is mounting anyone else’s. I am doing great, you need not worry about me.

I am telling you this because I want you to understand where “Abominations of the Ageless” is coming from, and why it ends the way it does.

Most of us have this one profound loss in our lives.

This is mine.

“Abominations of the Ageless”, and everything composed here after, is dedicated to Tomas Morefors.

You left us as King. I will carry your crown from this day forward.

In a not too distant future you will finally get to hear what has been created, once again made possible through your monetary support. I have told you this many times, but TPH is not happening without you.

You all have my deepest gratitude.

I can’t give you an exact date when the album is coming, but if nothing fucks up I’d say sometime in September.

You will be well aware when it happens.

Until then.
