||Swedish industrial death metal outfit The Project Hate MCMXCIX have been working on new material which has been penned in for a late 2012 release. Band guitarist, Kentha "Lord K." Philipson, has now issued the following update about it: "It's been a bit silence here as of late but fear not. I am working daily on our next album and it seems like I just put the final touches on the musical side of things for the new material. The past weeks I have been going back and forth within the songs and added stuff that really enhances the stuff at hand. It's been some insane work, to say the least - but now it seems like I am 99% done with the actual music. Some small things might change as we go along, but nothing major."
"As mentioned previously, Dirk's dissecting the songs big time and want you to know that he really loves the tunes. That says quite a bit. He'll record his drums on and off from now on forward until he's done. There is really no rush since I am working with the lyrics (would guess I have some 50% down as of now) and we have all the vocals and guest parts to record as well. We will definitely take our sweet time with this monster, simply because we have no deadlines. I always planned this one to be finished in 2012, and that's what we are aiming for. As it looks, it really should be no problem."
"I mentioned I got a phonecall a few weeks ago from a childhood hero of mine who's going to guest on this next album. I believe I forgot to tell you how it is, no? Lasse Johansson from Candlemass. I am truly honored to get a call from this hero, letting me know he definitely wants to guest on the material. I spoke to him a few days ago and I had but one demand - that he puts down his solos with the exact guitar he used for the classic album Nightfall. And that he will, haha... It's all coming together, as you can see. Thank you, Lasse."
"Besides that, Ruby's been sending over more vocal lines the past weeks, and she is absolutely blowing me right the fuck away again. I can't wait to hear this recorded for real. As you can see, things are going extremely well and we are all very pumped to get this album completed and delivered to you who donated. Thanks for the support. We'll talk soon again."
