The band commented on the recording process by saying:
"Busy day indeed. The drum kit was set-up already yesterday, so today we miced it up, and the old pool area sounded really cool. We got a really good sound going almost immediately. I exported all the demo tracks so we could mount it onto the click tracks for Per. (No this time we won't record live - surprise! ;). We did two drum takes all in all, but tomorrow will tell if we were up to something fruitful or not. Brain is melting - Need sleep / ZZZ
"We got off to an early start today, and after listening to yesterdays tracks we were very happy with the sound and the takes. Per was in the zone today, and we got 5 tracks down on tape (well, not really tape, but you get the drift ;). So far everthing is working excellent and we have a good vibe going. Peter will come down on Thursday, and hopefully he will help me out with these updates, I need to save my fingers for riffing. :) Thanks everybody for checking in, and cya tomorrow!"

THE HAUNTED’s Anders Björler produced the documentary and looks forward to finally share it with the fans, commenting as follows: "Road Kill is 10 years of touring compressed into a 65-minute documentary feature. It's rough, dirty, honest and to the point. After working almost 2 years on and off on this film, I am pleased it will finally see the light of day."
Vocalist Peter Dolving adds, "This DVD is a slice of life, a peek into what it's like being on the road with THE HAUNTED. Buy it, watch and enjoy, when you are dead and buried you won't be able to, will you?"
