The Project Hate Signs To Vic Records

The Project Hate has signed a record deal with Vic Records. Lord K. has issued the following updates on the signing and recording progress:

"It's been a little silent here as of late (if you don't count the activity at the forums, a place we always suggest you check out as we are there on a daily basis), but that doesn't mean there's nothing going on in the Hate Camp. We actually have shitloads of stuff in the making and now it's about time we reveal most of it. We have signed a new album deal, which feels really, really good. They have shown interest in TPH for quite some time and now when the label is rolling we gladly accepted their offer and decided to be a part of their roster. Head honcho Roel is an old acquaintance of K's which definitely played a huge part when it came down to signing to a label for the next album(s). We definitely have a nice vibe for this collaboration and our first album for Vic Records is in the making as we announce this relationship of satanic proportions and unholy bodily fluids. Eh, we don't even know what that means. Anyways, here are some plans for you, straight from the mouth of Hate.

"Vocalist Jörgen Sandström will start doing his vocals in a few weeks or so and will work with them from time to time during the rest of the year and probably for a bit of 2009 depending on how much time he can get on his hands. Once he enters the studio he does his stuff faster than a blastbeat so just keep your fingers crossed he can wrap his vocal sessions up asap. More...

The Project Hate Complete 7 Songs For New Album

THE PROJECT HATE — the Swedish band featuring vocalist Jörgen Sandström (ex-ENTOMBED, GRAVE), guitarist Lord K. Philipson (GOD AMONG INSECTS, ex-LEUKEMIA), bassist Michael Håkansson (ENGEL, ex-EVERGREY), guitarist Petter S. Freed (2 TON PREDATOR), singer Jo Enckell (IGNORANCE BLISS) and drummer Daniel "Mojjo" Moilanen (RELEVANT FEW, DRACENA, RUNEMAGICK, LORD BELIAL, ENGEL) — has issued the following update:

"All the seven songs [for the new THE PROJECT HATE album] are now finished. Seven songs of the music you love when it comes to the HATE. It's time to complete the lyrics now, something that will definitely take some time. During the coming months (or more thruthfully; until we actually record the album) we will enhance the material as we go along, making everything even better, more infernal and all-around even more utterly dominating. We dig to work like that, you know."

"All vocal parts have been decided and both Jo and J are hard at work with what they will deliver next time. We have even contacted some of the planned guest musicians that we want on the next masterpiece. Some of them being childhood heroes actually. Maybe..."

THE PROJECT HATE's last album, "In Hora Mortis Nostræ", was released in September 2007 via Stormvox Records, the label owned by Swedish actor Peter Stormare.

The Project Hate Issue Update

Sweden's THE PROJECT HATE have issued the following update:

"As you have noticed, we have been a little silent here as of late. That's all thanx to not having access to the goddamn net for a month or so due to the incompetence of Swedish phone and internet companies. First off we wanna thank our fantastic webmaster Marko Saarelainen for throwing in some stuff here at the site and helping us out with so much promotion while we have been internetless. He is the king, we tell you. Thanks sister, it's a pleasure to have you work with us."

"In Hora Mortis Nostræ has been out now for a few months and as always the reactions are mixed, just as expected. We know we have made a fantastic album and obviously the Haters understand that as well. Thanks for the awesome mails and everything that we have received from you guys and girls over the months, stating your admiration for what we do. We appreciate it more than we can express with words. Again, thank you so much." More...

Deathbreath Preview Material Online

DEATHBREATH, the new Swedish old-school death metal project featuring former ENTOMBED drummer and main songwriter Nicke Andersson (currently the frontman of his rock 'n' roll band THE HELLACOPTERS) and vocalist Jorgen Sandstrom (who had previously fronted the Swedish death metallers GRAVE), have uploaded an unmixed preview of a song to be featured on their upcoming debut album, "Heading For Decapitation" on their MySpace page.

DEATHBREATH's current lineup is completed by guitarist Robert Persson (who plays in THE HELLACOPTERS guitarist Robert Dahlqvist's side project THUNDER EXPRESS) and bassist Mange Hedquist.

Speaking to Sweden's Close-Up magazine last fall, Andersson stated about the project, "I haven't written any lyrics yet, but the music is so old-school that people today wouldn't even get that it's old-school. It's more like [DEATH's legendary 1987 debut] 'Scream Bloody Gore'. It's nothing like [ENTOMBED's] 'Wolverine Blues'. That style has already been done so well. At the same time there's only one 'Scream Bloody Gore', so a couple of albums like that I could put together.

"After having read the book 'Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore' and getting a kick, I went out and bought a lot of records. It was so much fun reading the book; it brought back so many memories. I bought POSSESSED's 'Seven Churches' on CD."

Sandstrom had previously played with Andersson in ENTOMBED as the group's bassist; he is also currently singing for THE PROJECT HATE and playing bass for VICIOUS ART.

God Among Insects Split With Threeman Recordings

Swedish extreme metal bands GOD AMONG INSECTS and THE PROJECT HATE, both of which feature guitarist Lord K (a.k.a. Kenth Philipson), have announced their split with the Threeman Recordings label. In virtually identical statements posted on the bands' respective web sites, they wrote, "Last week we told Threeman that [GOD AMONG INSECTS and THE PROJECT HATE] want out of the contract due to a lot of reasons. Label man [Alex Hellid, who is also ENTOMBED's guitarist] called me while K was in Holland and said that they were cool with it. Now we are just waiting for the official papers to make this go through. Hopefully they will come faster than the three years it took to get the contract.

"Why are we doing this?

"Because none of us are chuffed with how everything's being dealt with. [GOD AMONG INSECTS will] also pay back the money that they paid for the recording of 'Zombienomicon' and look for another label to release it.

"We thank Threeman for what they have done and wish them luck with any eventual new signings and whatnot. Hopefully they will have better finances and possibilities to take care of their future bands a bit better. We wish them nothing but the best."

God Among Insects Expects Album Cover To Be Banned

GOD AMONG INSECTS, the Swedish "old-school" death metal band featuring vocalist Emperor Magus Caligula (DARK FUNERAL), guitarist Lord K (a.k.a. Kenth Philipson) (THE PROJECT HATE), bassist Tomas Elofsson (SANCTIFICATION) and drummer Tobias Gustafsson (VOMITORY), have posted the following update on their sophomore album, "Zombienomicon", tentatively due in early 2006 via Threeman Recordings.

"Not much to report at the moment since not a shit is happening in the INSECTS camp. We are still waiting for Threeman to hand us a definite release date for the album, but shit is happening with that as well. They have asked us not to hand out an mp3 of a tune just yet, we'll see for how much longer we'll play along since we definitely want you guys to hear something off the coming slab of death.

"We were offered a European tour some time ago and finally had to decline since Caligula will be out with DARK FUNERAL at the time planned for the tour. Bummer, but fuck it. Lord K Philipson is currently out touring with Swedish death metal veterans VOMITORY as well so for the third or fourth time in this news thing, there's simply jack-fuck happening with the INSECTS at the moment.

"But... We have recieved the complete lay-out for 'Zombienomicon' now and you could say we are ecstatic by having one of the ugliest damned covers ever on a metal album. If this fucken thing doesn't get banned, something is wrong. As soon as we can we'll hand it out to you as well. Maybe at the same time when we decide to give you a tune for downloading, we guess we just have to do the mastering first — and no date is set for that either, of course.

"We'll try to see what Threeman's up to with everything so we can inform you guys. No matter what, the album is worth the wait. In the meantime we might just start working on album number 3."

GOD AMONG INSECTS' sophomore album was recorded at Abyss Studios with producer Tommy Tägtgren. The group's debut CD, "World Wide Death", is available now on Threeman Recordings via Plastic Head Distribution. An MP3 of the album cut "A Gush of Blood" can be downloaded at this location.

Unreleased The Project Hate Album Up For Download

The Project Hate has posted the following message regarding their unreleased album, "Deadmarch":

Now we have quite a treat for you Haters... Most of you probably heard about the lost "Deadmarch" tapes, right? If not, let's put long story in short:

Deadmarch was the complete embryo to what finally became TPH. We recorded one album, but it never saw the light of day. After TPH was formed and years passed, we dug the album out from the archives and gave it a few listens and thought about the possibility to have J [vocalist Jörgen Sandström] re-record the vocals for it since K [guitarist/keyboardist Lord K Philipson] was never satisfied with the vocal outcome. Yes, you got it, J didn't do the original vocals for the album - that being one of the reasons we never released it. The intention was to release it as a special treat for our fans, cos the album itself holds many aspects we think our fans would've loved to hear. This plan, thanx to many reasons (mentioned pretty in-depth at the forums), never happened. So we have decided to give you all the unreleased album for downloading for a short period of time.

Yeah, yeah, we know, we are completely awesome.

There's only one "but" to it: It means that you have to register at our forums to find the links to all the songs and detailed info about the album and why it never was re-recorded.

This album might be something to still yer hunger a little while waiting for October 5th when the new masterpiece gets released worldwide...

And just so you know, we most definitely will have another treat for you Haters very soon. Keep checking in here...

Sweden's The Project Hate, which features Jörgen Sandström (Entombed/Grave), has posted this message on the official TPH website:

With too much free time on our hands before the scheduled October-release of "Armageddon March Eternal", we have decided to hand you a re-mix of "At the entrance to hell's unholy fire". We have no idea if this one will ever see the light of day on a recording in the future, as a bonus-track or whatever, we just felt like putting it together and show a different side of the original tune.

The Project Hate Recording New Album

THE PROJECT HATE, the Swedish band featuring Jörgen Sandström of ENTOMBED/GRAVE fame on lead vocals, are currently recording their new album with producer Dan Swanö at several studios in Örebro, Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden. The band have posted the following studio update on their official web site:

"We just finished recording all of Jo's parts in Örebro, Sweden, and we are very chuffed with the outcome. 2 days of hard work and it all fell into place, and alot of credit goes to studio owner/vocal coach Robban who lived and breathed our material during the weekend. He's pushed Jo in a lot of different directions and really made her do her best work ever. We thank him and look forward to work with him again.

"All that's left now is for EVERGREY bassist Michael [Håkansson] to nail the last 3 songs and then we can start mixing this thing at Dan Swanö's studio.

"Armageddon is getting closer by the second..."

New Project Hate Album To Feature Evergrey Bassist

The Project Hate, the Swedish band featuring Jörgen Sandström of Entombed/Grave fame on lead vocals, are currently recording their new album with producer Dan Swanö at Dan's studio in Örebro, Sweden. The band have posted the following studio update on their official web site:

A few days ago we considered ourselves completely finished with the guitars and made a back-up disc of all the material (actually the guitars have been finished longer than that but we never got around to make a back-up disc of it), so now we are safe in case anything unexpected happens to the computers.

Jörgen's vocals looks like they will be put down in Stockholm (in the same studio where Vicious Art — Jörgen's other band, recorded their debut album) at March 12th and 13th. Ms. Jo's stuff is planned to be recorded in Örebro the weekend after that, so we are definitely getting closer to completing this piece of domination.

Bassist Michael Håkansson of Evergrey has now gotten all of the material and has started to work with the bass for the album. Nope, he's not a member of TPH, he's just helping out as the good lad he is. We thank him for wanting in on this and can promise some excellent bass-work on this album.

When everything is done as far as vocals/bass and guitars goes, K and Dan Swanö will spend some serious amount of time with the mix, which will happen in Dan's own studio.

There's no set date for release, or even for when we will complete this album, but we are planning to have everything shaped up in April, and hopefully Threeman/Candlelight can have this monster out before summer.
