Cover art for “Death Ritual Covenant” and new merch available for pre-ordering!

I know you have waited to see what will grace our 12th album art wise. The amazing Seiya Ogino of Ogino Design has fired up this incredible piece that you can see now. I can’t thank the guy enough for his insane professionalism and dedication towards the TPH vision. His creation perfectly displays everything I want said graphics wise with “DRC”. To put it mildly, if you’re in need of some help with websites, merchandise, album covers or whatnot – contact Seiya right away! Even though the cover is now designed by someone else than our longtime artist Marko Saarelainen, this doesn’t mean Marko’s not involved with this, not at all. Marko will take care of the rest of the packaging that comes with the album. It will be absolutely glorious, trust me on this.

And in celebration of revealing the cover, we also have shirts up for pre-ordering! This design is obviously a variation of the album cover and if I may say so – this is our best looking shirt yet! Once again Seiya’s done some killer work. Just check it out and then read on for all the pre-ordering information you might need.

The shirts then… there will be 4 different versions, as can be seen above (duh) and I’ll take pre-orders for these during the whole of February, meaning they will be printed and delivered during the first half of March if nothing fucks up in the process. I have told you this before, but the reason I do this pre-order thing is – I obviously don’t make much money off of TPH, which prevents me to print a huge batch of shirts in various sizes just to have them laying around unsold at the end of the day. By pre-ordering you make it possible for me to see how many shirts I can order from the manufacturing company without worrying about bankruptcy. Sure, this always makes for some delay in the deliveries between payment and actual shipping, but I simply can’t work it any other way. I’m sure you understand and are ok with this DIY crap I have to deal with. The downside of being a small-time band, I guess, haha…

Here are the technicalities for both the shirt and how to go about to order:
Shirt brand: Fruit Of The Loom (Super Premium). Make sure you are aware of what sizes are available with each color of the shirt. And these are the designs:
BLACK w/WHITE PRINT (available sizes S-5XL)
WHITE w/BLACK PRINT (available sizes S-5XL)
RED w/BLACK PRINT (available sizes S-3XL)
BLACK w/GREY PRINT (available sizes S-5XL)
Price is 220 SEK/shirt and payment is made thru PayPal. I have raised the price from the usual 200 SEK since postage has gone up and people always forget/don’t give a fuck about PayPal’s fee when they pay. This way their fee is covered and you don’t have to think about it. If you’re in Sweden and want to pay in some other way, you e-mail me at
So, PayPal your money to: and make sure you write your name and address with the payment as well as making sure it says EXACTLY which version(s) of the shirt you want and what size, according to the descriptions above. Your note should look like this:
1 BLACK/WHITE (XL) AND 1 RED/BLACK (M). Send to *name and address*
Also, I ALWAYS confirm your order, so if you haven’t heard from me in 24 hours – something is fucked. Contact me immediately if so, ok? A few more things about these shirts… the print might differ a little bit in size in real life compared to the pictures included here, but we always aim to print as large as possible. Also, the actual shirt colors might not look exactly as shown here, but you prolly already know this.
That should do it for now. Now excuse me, I have an album to complete!
