The Haunted Announces New Album

After a strong finish on a series of tour dates across the UK and Central Europe alongside heavy-hitters' Meshuggah and Arch Enemy respectively, Swedish thrash metal act The Haunted has been busy completing the recording and mixing process of the upcoming 9th studio album effort.

Recorded at Parlour Studios in the UK with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, The Exploited), the album is entitled “Strength In Numbers” and will be released worldwide via Century Media Records on August 25, 2017. More information on the album is expected soon.

Guitarist Ola Englund has checked in with the following comment: “Working on 'Strength In Numbers' with Russ Russell as an engineer and producer has been an incredible experience. His attitude and positivity has helped us to truly do our best when recording. He’s just a killer guy to be around!”, before adding: “All the tracking for the album has been completed and Russ is right in the middle of mixing and mastering it. And from the early mixes I’ve heard, it’s shaping up to be insanely heavy. No clean singing, no banjo, no pickup trucks...so fans of country music are gonna hate it, haha! Seriously: Heads are gonna roll. In a good way...”

A video teaser from their recording sessions can now be seen below: More...

The Haunted To Record New Album

After finishing a successful U.K. tour together with Meshuggah, Swedish thrash metal crew The Haunted is soon to commence recordings for a 9th studio album effort, which is expected to be released worldwide by Century Media Records later in 2017.

The Haunted's guitarist Ola Englund checked in with the following status update for the new album: "After almost 2.5 years since the release of 'Exit Wounds', we're finally hitting the studio again. This time around we have chosen Russ Russell of Parlour Studios to record/mix the album, so we're heading over to UK early march to start with the drums.

"And telling from the pre-productions, this will be a bit more of a dynamic album than 'Exit Wounds,' song-wise. I'm very excited to let the fans hear what we have in store. It's brutality and beauty in perfect disharmony." More...

Ex-The Haunted Singer Rants Against Music Industry

Former The Haunted frontman Peter Dolving has posted a lengthy rant on facebook sharing his views on the metal music industry, slamming a few record labels, label owners and A&R product managers (including Century Media's Leif Jensen), and Nuclear Blast.

Some excerpts:

"What I have come to see is that; 'The music business”'– one that could really be an amazing thing, with potential for true positive influence in society, is a mess..... .... instead – I found disgust, unwillingness and ignorance. Narcissists, and even psychopaths in far too many positions of power. People who don´t HAVE abstract conceptual understanding, and the necessary skill sets to act in way that is good for the companies they run or work for."

"After 10 years, I accepted. Leif Jensen is a fat bitter German with a slowly increasing liver and kidney disease, just like so many of his particular ilk.

"At The Gates Tompa is up for the job, he´s smart and well-phrased. But he really doesn´t stand for anything. He´s the epitiome of all the German metal labels love; a harmless white middle class academic, with a shitty self image, great education and great taste in music."

Check out his entire post below. More...

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 34

Submissions are now closed for our ticket giveaway to see The Black Dahlia Murder at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this Monday, October 13th. But you can still submit your full name (matching your ID) and the headlining band in the email subject to podcast@metalunderground.com if you’d like to win a ticket to Attila on Friday, November 14th at the same venue.

We kick off this week’s MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast with some more unsigned talent: traditional/power metal act Sacred Ash of Westchester, New York. Formed in 2012, the band released an EP last year titled “Beneath Blackened Skies.”

Following that, co-hosts Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) and Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) kick around some ideas and reactions to some buzz-worthy metal topics of the week. Are Swiss folk metal octet Eluveitie corporate sellouts for accepting a sponsorship from automaker Honda, or are they completely sensible, given today’s difficulties in sustaining a metal music career? Who or what was truly responsible for the demise of the previous incarnation of Sweden’s The Haunted? Is founding guitarist Patrik Jensen’s explanation a fair one? And speaking of fair, who really pulled the plug on a recently cancelled Behemoth concert on a Polish university campus? Another grave injustice, or more drama queendom from bandleader Nergal?

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 30

Before we summarize this week’s MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast, your fabulous co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure), who rather enjoys referring to himself in the third person, is about to lazily copy and paste an important notice from last week… and the week before.

“We,” meaning Token Hispanic co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead), are hosting two upcoming ticket giveaways through Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. First comes The Black Dahlia Murder (supported by Suicide Silence) on Monday, October 13th, followed by Attila (supported by Crown The Empire and Like Moths To Flames) on Friday, November 14th.

If interested, please fire an email to podcast@metalunderground.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading and your full name (matching your ID) in the message body.

Additionally, if you’re an unsigned metal band with a kickass song you’d like to hear featured as our weekly intro music, we’d like to hear it! Please contact us via the email address above.

Kicking off this week’s topics, Mike relays the recent announcement by Swedish death metallers Bloodbath regarding the upcoming fourth studio album “Grand Morbid Funeral,” due out November 17th on Peaceville Records. He also shares some thoughts concerning the group’s as-yet-unidentified new vocalist, so pay attention.

Next, it’s - put a sock in it - more Slipknot. Hey, activity in the Iowan legends’ camp is newsworthy, so we’re going to discuss it. This sour little tidbit revolves around the band’s revelation that percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan is designing two identical masks for the new rhythm section, deliberately distinct from the rest. Whether this bit of ritualistic “othering” is the start of a Newstedian hazing campaign is yet to be determined.

Bummed about the disappointing new In Flames album? So were we. Which is why this week we’re overjoyed to gush about “Exit Wounds,” the ripping, thrashing, and successful return to form by The Haunted, a Swedish band that’s done what most of us wish In Flames had. Stay tuned to hear our full thoughts; we hope you agree!

Tune in here, enjoy, and don’t forget to subscribe via iTunes or RSS feed.
