The Age Of Metal recently conducted an interview with Marco Aro of Swedish metallers THE HAUNTED. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked about the progress of the songwriting sessions for THE HAUNTED‘s follow-up to 2014’s “Exit Wounds” album, Marco said: “We are, at the moment, writing. We’ve been writing for, on and off, about a year now. But this is when we start taking the writing serious. So we’re actually being serious about the writing now. So afer this [U.S.] tour, we’re going home and we’re gonna do some festivals and stuff and write in between and start scheduling for a recording date.”

THE HAUNTED is continuing work on music for the follow-up to 2014’s “Exit Wounds” album, to be recorded later in 2016 for release through Century Media.

THE HAUNTED recently completed a short run of North American dates as the support act for AT THE GATES.

“Exit Wounds” was 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.

“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.
