The Haunted released their newest, and their 8th album “ Exit Wounds” September 2 in North America via Century Media Records.  Exit Wounds is the indisputable return, and the lineup is refurbished, consisting of founding members Jonas Björler (bass) and Jensen (guitars), teaming up with previous band members Adrian Erlandsson (drums), and Marco Aro (vocals), who replaced Peter Dolving, who gave The Haunted their sound over the last 4 albums, and with newest member Ola Englund (guitars), they are about to knock you on your ass. I was a little concerned at first when I got this to review. But after giving this a listen of two (maybe even more), there is no doubt in my mind, they are going to  crush you.

Track Listing:
01. 317
02. Cutting Teeth
03. My Salvation
04. Psychonaut
05. Eye Of The Storm
06. Trend Killer (feat. Chuck Billy)
07. Time (Will Not Heal)

Yes, there are some trademarks songs here, and I am sure I am not the only one who appreciated those on this album, I like the fact it’s aggressive, capturing your attention on every song, depicting their older style but giving it some new emphasis on what they have become now. A full diversity of what they are capable of. What are you waiting for, if you haven’t got it, then get out there and grab this.
