The Haunted: THE HAUNTED - "Exit Wounds" out now; "Cutting Teeth" video premiered via Metal Injection!
Swedish death-thrashers THE HAUNTED are releasing their 8th full-length, Exit Wounds, in Europe as of today (and on September 2nd in North America) via Century Media Records!
To celebrate the release, THE HAUNTED are now premiering the video clip for the album's opening track "Cutting Teeth, which was directed by Jakob Arevärn of Arevarnfilm / www.facebook.com/Arevarnfilm, via Metal Injection. Check it out here: www.metalinjection.net
THE HAUNTED's vocalist Marco Aro has checked in to comment on the video clip as follows: "Here's the video to go with our song 'Cutting Teeth'. We decided to make a video that matched the brutality in the song, so we contacted a guy we had heard great things about, Jakob Arevärn. With Jakob at the helm, the filming and all the stuff around the shoot went really smooth - and it turns out - I made a good friend along the way too! So here it is...enjoy and we'll see you all soon!"
And THE HAUNTED's drummer, Adrian Erlandsson (also in At The Gates, Paradise Lost and Vallenfyre), added the following words about the album's release: "Our brand new face-ripping album "Exit Wounds" is ready for release! Some of our heaviest tunes ever reside on this release and we can't wait for you to hear it! We are once again ready tear up stages around the world...See you in the pit!!!"

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 Björler (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" (Feat. Testament's Chuck Billy on guest vocals and Strapping Young Lad's Jed Simon on guest lead guitar) 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.
