Writing to Evergrey's official web site, Håkansson said, "I have now finished my work on the upcoming The Project Hate album and it turned out awesome!!! The album in now done for mixing by Dan Swanö. I was asked to join for the album and everyone seem very, very happy with my work and I´m really proud myself.

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..."
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.
The Project Hate, the Swedish band featuring Jörgen Sandström of Entombed/Grave fame on lead vocals, have just completed work on the fifth track out of the seven or eight planned for inclusion on the group's fourth studio album, according to a posting on the group's web site. "Rough demos of everything's been made to have something to work with as we write lyrics," the posting adds. "Three or four lyrics are pretty much completed as well and things are going good to say the least.
"We haven't got a date set for the recording just yet, but we know we are to enter the studio sometime in December for almost three weeks of recording. We have some titles ready as well and we might even have come up with the album title already. We'll see if we keep it or if we come up with something even better as we go along."

THE PROJECT HATE, the Swedish band featuring Jörgen Sandström of ENTOMBED/GRAVE fame on lead vocals, will enter Soundlab Studios in December to record their fourth full-length album, tentatively due in early 2005. "We plan to record 8 or 9 songs for the album," the group write on their web site. "We are also planning to record a cover. No, it's not going for the album but for a planned compilation album to be released sometime if all goes well. When there's more info about this we'll announce what band we are covering. Let just say we won't do the song in the traditional cover way..."
With regards to the new songs, the band write, "The material is possibly more death metal than anything we have ever done before, without losing all the usual ingredients we are known for. That stuff is probably more evident than ever as well, how weird that may sound..."
Sweden's ENTOMBED have issued an official statement confirming the departure of bassist Jörgen Sandström. According to the statement, "Jörgen has decided to quit touring and left the band on good terms. [However] this does not mean that Jörgen will leave the music business as he is still a member of the bands THE PROJECT HATE & KRUX and will still be involved with the Threeman label and the ENTOMBED homepage."
The statement also confirms our previous report that Jörgen's replacement in the band will be Nico Engelstrand, formerly of TERRA FIRMA. Nico was involved with the band before in the producer/engineer capacity for such albums as "Uprising" (2000) and "Morning Star" (2001).
Nico's live debut with the band will take place this Sunday, February 1 at the Zodiac in Oxford, U.K.
