The Haunted:  New song "Time (Will Not Heal)" streaming via MetalSucks.net;  New album pre-order available; Confirmed for Loud Park festival in Japan!
Swedish death-thrashers THE HAUNTED are ready to unleash their 8th full-length, Exit Wounds, on August 25th in Europe and September 2nd in North America via Century Media Records! For fans that missed the premiere of the album's latest single, "Time (Will Not Heal)", on Full Metal Jackie's radio show this past weekend, the band has launched an online stream of the track via MetalSucks.net here: www.metalsucks.net

THE HAUNTED's Ola Englund (guitars) comments: "'Time (Will Not Heal)' is one of those songs that came together naturally and wrote itself. With its stomping drums, riffs and Marco's screaming, it's one of my first contributions to THE HAUNTED and I hope you will dig it. The album is finally out end August in Europe and early September in the rest of the world."

Exit Wounds can now be pre-ordered at iTunes smarturl.it and AmazonMP3 smarturl.it with the tracks "Eye Of The Storm", "Cutting Teeth" and "Time (Will Not Heal)" available as instant downloads upon purchase. The album can also be pre-ordered in a variety of physical formats, plus exclusive bundles at CM Distro: smarturl.it

Featuring artwork by Andreas "Diaz" Pettersson (who designed the band's first four releases, as well as their iconic logo), Exit Wounds is an unmistakable return to form for THE HAUNTED. The album sees a revamped line-up that includes founding members Jonas Bj??r (bass) and Jensen (guitars) teaming up with former members Adrian Erlandsson (drums) and Marco Aro (vocals), together with newest member Ola Englund (guitars). From the merciless triple punch in the face that is the opening section with "Cutting Teeth" , "My Salvation" and "Psychonaut", to the rhythmical riff-fest that are "Eye Of The Storm", "Trend Killer" and "Time (Will Not Heal)", over to the chunky melodic groove of tracks like "All I Have" and trademark thrash-pieces like "Temptation", "Kill The Light" and "Infiltrator", via the pulverizing heaviness of "This War" and the one-minute fury of "My Enemy", up to the epic ending with the broad "Ghost In The Machine", Exit Wounds contains the full spectrum of artillery that a modern extreme metal band can possibly showcase. Here is the track-listing of the album's standard edition:
