Tell us a few words on each or the most important releases of your label, and which of them are still available for purchase.
Please refer to the list above for everything TGP has ever released. 
To be honest, there’s no such thing as “most important releases” in the label’s history, as all were equally important to me at the time of their creation. If had to choose one “special” release though, it’d have to be the Abhorrot 7”; simply due to all the more or less interesting aspects of creating a vinyl record.

 
What are the most important features you look for in a band that is or has the chance to be signed on your label?
I have a pretty elaborate and well refined idea of what I would consider for a release through TGP and that’s what I match potential candidates against. The exact criteria, or “important features” as you put it, are music, visual aesthetics and overall image/atmosphere a given band evokes. All of that has to be a coherent incarnation of Darkness and Death to be considered worthy of my time, money and overall effort.

 
How can a band get in touch with you? What should bands know before submitting their promos for your consideration?
Via email, using this address: terrorghoul[AT]gmail[DOT]com
Digital submissions will generally be ignored and sent straight to the dephts of the Spam Folder. 
Other than that, the only thing to know is: if you haven’t heard of any of the bands yet, that TGP has released stuff for in the past, do not bother submitting anything at all. Or past activities and releases should serve more than well as an indication of what kind of Death we deal with.

 
What's the most important thing in the relationship between you and your bands? What is your label offering to its bands?
That’s hard to answer from a label’s point of view; I guess you’d have to ask the bands…
As far as my lable activity is concerned, I usually offer a quality release on analogue format (MC, vinyl) with a 10-15% share of the total units produced going to the band for their effort.
 
Is there anything you planned with your label and has not yet been completed?
I recently stopped acting as a distro, which of course makes it harder to get my releases to the actual “consumers”. This step was long overdue and is still in transition, as getting rid of all the old stock takes its time.

 
How does the future looks for your label? Any major projects you would like to share with us?
None at the moment, taking it rather slow these days.
As far as the future is concerned, only time will tell – there’s no masterplan and I generally tend to act rather impulsively when it comes to discovering potential future releases or other projects.

 
How can anyone get in touch with you? Please list your website, webstore and/or social media links.

Other than that, there’s the official website (http://dthcltrtl.net/tg) and a Facebook page (that we barely use).
