Swedish metallers The Haunted are set to begin tracking their forthcoming album at Antfarm Studio in Århus, Denmark, on October 18. The album will be their seventh and should surface some time early next year on Century Media Records.
The album follows 2008’s Versus and the band has launched a studio blog to keep fans updated on the progress of the studio sessions. Tue Madsen will be producing again.
“Looking at the ideas that we’re coming up with, looking at the stuff that we’re doodling around with, it’s gonna be a very heavy and it’s gonna be a very strange record,” frontman Peter Dolving said in a recent interview. “It’s gonna be like a continuation of what we started experimenting with both on rEVOLVEr and on The Dead Eye so it’ll be eclectic and hard.
“‘Cause around the time of The Dead Eye, we felt that we really needed to do something that we hadn’t done that we really wanted to do, and we got a lot of critique for it; a lot of people didn’t like it,” Dolving continued. “We loved it, and the songs that we’re playing off that record are going over really well with the audience and we’re really enjoying to play them. So we figure, why the fuck shouldn’t we play and continue to try and evolve as musicians and songwriters? And that’s what we’ll do.”
