They brought this nightmare to light

Bad news:
We’re finally getting the files for the ultra-delayed-ultimate-collectors-edition of Hell Frost! The ones and zeroes are transferring slowly through the lacerated wires of the forest town of Pärlby, all the way to the ultra fast optical fiber of urbane capital of Scandinavia; Stockholm. Soon we will be able to establish a more definitive shipping date for the release AND you will finally get your product. Sometimes to get from point A to B is not as simple as it appears to be, is it now? And it certainly doesn’t make it any faster if you rattle the alphabet in an inverted order… In this very now I’m listening to some of the pre-production demos of the collection. The very first sketches of the Hell Frost songs; unaltered and unrefined. I realize how much the songs have grown from their cradled phase and also that a lot of the stuff sounds kind of crappy hehe, but it is indeed a nice history lesson and I think a lot of you will enjoy following the songs from its raw sketches to its final master production.

Good news:
I just had my car in for the annual inspection and it dashed through that shit faultless like the vitruvian man by Mr. Da Vinci! BOOM!!!

Now I’m off to the gym. Have some pictures from Rockstad: Falun my friends!

Song of the day: Bloodsimple - What If I Lost It


"The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" haha, just kidding, you are all lovley! <3

The 616 circle of trust. God know what they were plotting... I wasn't invited :( 

Monster Energy made it comfortable for us on the festival!

So this last week was beyond awesome with The Unguided gigs at both Rockstad: Falun and Summer Breeze. Unfortunately we didn't play Deathwalker as promised, on either of the festivals. That’s only because we felt that it needed another spin in the rehearsal room before we took it out on its live virgin voyage. There were a lot of fans to be gained on these two events, we didn’t want to attract the opposite of that (HATERS!!!) just because we didn’t know how the fuck to play a new song. We are looking into playing the tune at Falkenberg Rockfest this weekend however, so let’s hold our claws and hoofs for that! 

Jonas unfortunately didn’t give me the collector’s edition master this weekend, which is getting a bit ridiculous since it delays the delivery to you with every passing day. The last word is that we will receive the master tonight and once we get it to Despotz it will take another 3 weeks for printing, until we can ship it across the globe. I know this sucks harder than a martian hooker with extraterrestrial hyper-vacuum lungs… but once again it’s NOT in the bands hands and we hope that your extremely well-tried stamina of understanding for these sort of things, still have some ounces left in their reservoirs.

Song of the day: Spineshank - Synthetic

Wasn’t lying when I said I’ll update this bitch a bit more frequently. Just watch this hat-trick, BOOM! What just came in is that; Mr. Kjellgren is finally done with the masters for the ultimate “Hell Frost” box and he will hand it over to me personally tomorrow at “Rockstad: Falun” (He’s going to tear the stage apart with “Bourbon Boys” tomorrow as well.) He promises that the pre-production songs sound terrible and that all the volume levels are exceeded to the maximum with distorted results, OH-RAH! This box of mess will be sent to print immediately and then be on its way to your hearths in a couple of weeks. Like that is not enough, I just saw a picture from the 11 Frames crypt and it looks to me that they are doing some brutal effects for the coming “Betrayer of the code” video. Go see for yourself here.

I just got home from the barbress. She said she’ll make me look tasty for the gigs, but instead she put me in some kind of devious device.

There have been some mails regarding the recent photos from the “BOTC” video shoot and instead of letting your curiosity consume you. I’ll just slap a picture up here of all the cool gears, I’m wearing hehe. I got myself a new POLICE watch called “Dominator”. Some pimping red leather gloves (figured since the guy on the “BOTC” artwork has blood on his hands, I obviously don’t want to be inferior,) the “chemical wedding” + “The Unguided dog tag” deadly necklace combo AND of course everyone in the band is wearing the latest “Sullen clothing” shirts. Now you know! See you tomorrow and on Saturday, don’t forget the signings. WE’LL HAVE PUNCH AND PIE AS ALWAYS…

Song of the day: Insomnium - At The Gates Of Sleep
