Comments Aro: “This time around we’ve found our way back to where we once started! You could say that we’ve gathered the old crew, both in music and the artwork.
“Our old friend Andreas ‘Diaz ‘ Pettersson is back, an amazing artist with a rap sheet which includes the artwork on no less than four THE HAUNTED albums. He always finds a way to put our thoughts into print where he sometimes even scares us a bit…and this release in no different. We decided on ‘Exit Wounds’ as being a good title for the album given the recent history of the band, but also a sort of a phoenix rising.
“We are so excited about this little thing we’ve created! Can’t wait to get out there and start playing these songs and for me personally, I could not be more proud of what we have done. I really hope you’re going to enjoy it!”
