Commented Philipson: "So, your first taste of the diabolical inferno that is 'Bleeding The New Apocalypse' will now be unleashed upon mankind. The song in question is called 'Summoning Majestic War' and is the fourth tune on the coming masterpiece that will be released on February 14th, 2011 through Season Of Mist.
"Why have we chosen this particular track to be your first glimpse of the new album? No reason, really; we could have chosen any of them since they all absolutely dominate. We just thought it'd be nice to have Leif Edling somewhat introduce you to what we have created this time around. Yeah, CANDLEMASS bassist/everyday legend Leif Edling contributes some spoken words in this track. You can all start applauding now. But not only that. In this tune you'll also get some insanely nice vocals from [ex-SCAR SYMMETRY frontman] Christian Älvestam (who also sang a line or two on our last album).
"So, that's a lot of bonus stuff for ya apart from the simple fact that 'Summoning Majestic War' is a goddamn phenomenal symphony that represents THE PROJECT HATE in every shape, way and form.
"If you survive these 12-plus minutes of pure excellence, pray you'll survive the remaining five tracks on 'Bleeding the New Apocalypse' as well. It will not be an easy task. Domination is a fierce beast.
"Our work is done — now it's your turn to purchase the album and help us ship a few copies so we will be able to record another masterpiece with a great label such as Season Of Mist backing us up.
"If you consider yourself a fan of music in general and THE PROJECT HATE in particular, and do not absolutely love what we have created in this song, as well as the whole album — you are apparently deaf."
Regarding the album title, Philipson previously stated, "The title itself has a deeper meaning to us for natural reasons. This is the new era of THE PROJECT HATE MCMXCIX. My dream team is finally gathered when Ruby and Tobben joined me and Jörgen, and together we have created what is the perfect vision of how I always wanted us to sound. We are there now. This is perfection. There's not a single thing left to chance on this album and when the time comes you will notice exactly that. For now you can just taste the sulphur, the diabolical essence and the wrath that this title promises. And when the album is unleashed you better be prepared for the new Apocalypse. It is not pretty in any way, shape or form."
THE PROJECT HATE MCMXCIX recently parted ways with Vic Records "due to the financial situation and the complete lack of record sales for smaller record labels," according to a statement released by the band.
THE PROJECT HATE's last album, "The Lustrate Process", was released in July 2009 via Vic. The CD was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound in Örebro, Sweden. The artwork and booklet design was handled by Statik Majik.
