The Haunted Begin Recording New Album
After numerous lineup changes, Swedish band The Haunted have entered the studio to begin recording their eighth album. Drummer Adrian Erlandsson and guitarist Ola Englund offer an update in the above video.
After the exit of vocalist Peter Dolving, former singer Marco Aro has rejoined the band. Erlandsson also returns after leaving back in 1999. This will be the first the Haunted album for Englund (ex-Six Feet Under). The album is being recorded at Antfarm Studio in Denmark with producer Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquillity).
The band issued the following statement about the album: “Here you go, folks; picture proof of the cursed, grueling, back-breaking yet eventually immensely rewarding process of recording an album. How about Tue’s use of an empty pool for that special reverb effect!? You can’t buy that s–t as a plug-in (Hey…Wait a minute…Maybe you can?).”
“Anyway, recording might be hard, strenuous work, but it’s always relaxing to have producer wizard, and great friend, R-Tue-D-Tue on board. We love both him and his studio dog Maud. The songs all sound great, and it seems that we’re looking at the embryo to a pretty fast album. We’re hoping you won’t mind the velocity when you pop the CD into the player with your dirty little mitts.”
The Haunted recently released the three track single ‘Eye of the Storm.’ It’s available here. Listen to the title track below. The band is getting ready to hit the road for a European tour which kicks off March 28 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
