Featuring artwork by Andreas “Diaz” Pettersson (who designed the band’s first four releases, as well as their iconic logo), Exit Wounds is an unmistakable return to form for THE HAUNTED. The album sees a revamped line-up that includes founding members Jonas Björler (bass) and Jensen (guitars) teaming up with former members Adrian Erlandsson (drums) and Marco Aro (vocals), together with newest member Ola Englund (guitars). From the merciless triple punch in the face that is the opening section with “Cutting Teeth” , “My Salvation” and “Psychonaut”, to the rhythmical riff-fest that are “Eye Of The Storm”, “Trend Killer” and “Time (Will Not Heal)”, over to the chunky melodic groove of tracks like “All I Have” and trademark thrash-pieces like “Temptation”, “Kill The Light” and “Infiltrator”, via the pulverizing heaviness of “This War” and the one-minute fury of “My Enemy”, up to the epic ending with the broad “Ghost In The Machine”, Exit Wounds contains the full spectrum of artillery that a modern extreme metal band can possibly showcase.
