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..."
