Worship LIVE in TEXAS USA!

•November 8, 2011 • 2 Comments

Good morning US worshippers. After many years of “sorries” and “some-days”, I can finally tell you that YES we are about to hit US soil next month! We have been asked to play the…

Rites of Darkness Festival III
December 9th to 11th 2011
San Antonio, Texas, USA

I played somewhat around 150 gigs in my life, but I never played in the US. This is a MAJOR achievement and adventure for us, believe me…

We are replacing a band that has canceled, so we are not on the flyer below. And I heard we have received not too shabby a slot, rather late in the festival… Make sure you don’t leave early!

We will be present for a few days, though, and we will also explore Texas a bit. Hope to meet a lot of you guys, make some friends, and hang out with the US worshippers… You have the serious mission to entertain us and show us around, so be prepared! šŸ˜‰

First Worship gig for 2012 confirmed

•November 7, 2011 • 1 Comment

Worship will play at Heavy Days In Doom Town, 3rd to 6th of May 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Another first time in a new country, and the festival sounds very well prepared! I hope to meet many of you there…

Totally excited to be on the road and on stage again (after a dry spell of over 2 years, and it’s 3 for Worship already)! So, everything I lack in album progress I make up in live surprises, because there is a 2nd gig about to be confirmed, a 3rd undecided. Stay tuned, and keep those concert requests coming!

Will offset this negative post with a cool one. Still almost no progress with the album, I’m sorry, but on the other hand I am thinking a lot about Worship these days, and the album will be done.

pfr………. My drummer is kicking my butt, he wants to finish his recordingsĀ  next month, will try to make it happen! At least, next week I will have a look at new necessary equipment for the recordings… Still working on the lyrics, should have been done days ago… But I am often distracted by my other music duties, it’s a strange situation I am living in nowadays.

The poll looks OK, seems like 10% are pissed off by a potential rerelease of the split EP songs, but the vast majority would love it… Will think about it for a while…

New Poll: Limited LP with old split EP songs?

•August 13, 2011 • 3 Comments

This comes up every now and then, and so again this time on our new Facebook page.Ā  I don’t know. Is it OK to re-release lost songs of the old split eps, and put it on a limited LP with a new track? Or would this be disrespectful towards the faithful collectors and the statement STRICTLY “LIMITED”.

I know, some will scream “do what you want, why do you care what others think?”Ā  Well, I can’t help it. The Worshippers make this band possible, and I can’t be so evil to make something which would totally anger say 60% of the fanbase.

So, speak up your mind, and I will take your results as guidance.

Worship now has an official Facebook page

Until we can assign a custom link to it, the link would be:

Lyrics, and future thoughts

•August 7, 2011 • 3 Comments

I know, hit me with a bible. But next to trying to finish the lyrics, I also had a major breakthrough concerning the album AFTER the next. I know, sorry! But I have a very clear, epic vision about it. It will be grander than anything I have ever done. A bold, huge theme, so massive and epic that I certainly will need help by the Cult of Worshippers.

There is one central element that will push it beyond any Doom Album I know (OK, I don’t know shit, but anyway), which will remain the “secret ingredient” but will also make it one of the most expensive funeral doom albums I think. Who cares? I am not rich, not by far (I am living of making music damn it), but I have certain ideas how to make it happen – with your help.

The breakthrough I had: I realised a new way to make it happen, with calculated costs, that makes this fancy dream quite reachable…

I also plan the next shirts, I think I will somehow manage to have 3 fucking shirts ready for you when the preorder for CD and LP starts. 1 old one (winner of our little poll), 1 logo (runner up of the poll), and the brand new album cover. It makes sense, no-one is to blame for postage fees, you have to cover them anyway, so I offer as much as I can so that your shipping costs gets divided by several items, if you are interested in them that is… There will also be a little thank you for the first orderers.

I got a gig offer, YES keep them coming. 2008 was a whirlstorm of live interest, 15-20 requests. This year is much more silent because I am so fucking silent. If you have a gig, anywhere on earth (and I mean ANYWHERE, the weirder the better), we just need to cover our costs. I will try to set up the new live formation in a way that is slimmer to maintain. If you now a Doom festival that takes our horrible Funeral Doom, if you know some promoters, please let me know.

I can tell you that we have ONE gig already, at a cool festival, so I need to rehearse anyway with my guys. More gigs will be easy for us to do!

At this point I must add that my “new” label Weird Truth, who this time for a change is in charge with this album, is possibly the most gentle and understanding of labels concerning my lateness and overall non-speed of production.Ā  Thanks Makoto, you rock so hard.
