THE HAUNTED Streams New Jam “Cutting Teeth”

Wednesday, 9th July 2014

Swedish death/thrashers THE HAUNTED are streaming “Cutting Teeth,” a song from their forthcoming Exit Wounds album, which is due on August 25 in Europe and September 2 in North America via Century Media. The album was once again recorded with the group’s longtime producer Tue Madsen at Denmark’s Antfarm Studio (DARK TRANQUILLITY, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, SICK OF IT ALL) and features THE HAUNTED’s revamped lineup: founding members Jonas Björler (bass) and Patrik Jensen (guitar) along with with returning members Adrian Erlandsson (drums) and Marco Aro (vocals), and the band’s latest addition, guitarist Ola Englund.

Aro states about “Cutting Teeth”: “Here’s an evil little piece of work that was one of the last songs we recorded for Exit Wounds. It represents quite a lot of what THE HAUNTED is all about: breaking new ground, pissing people off, exploring unfamiliar territories, all of this… just to feed the hungry machine that is THE HAUNTED! Always curious, always hungry, always thirsting for more… in words… ‘Cutting Teeth’!”

THE HAUNTED has also revealed that Exit Wounds features two special guests appearing on the song “Trend Killer”: Jed Simon (SCAR THE MARTYR, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) on lead guitar and Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT) on vocals.

Said Billy: “I have always been a THE HAUNTED fan and became friends with the band over the years. When they asked if I would like to sing on a song for the new album with Marco singing, I didn’t have to think twice about doing it. When I received the track and listened for the first time, I said, ‘Fuck Yeah…this is gonna be brutal!'”
