ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott has laid down a guest solo on the new THE HAUNTED CD, tentatively titled "One Kill Wonder". "That was really cool," commented Amott. "Their new album is sounding frighteningly good [laughs]. That was pretty scary, but I enjoyed playing on that. Me and Anders [Björler], the lead guitar player, traded off a bit, all in all a fun Sunday afternoon in the studio."In other news, ARCH ENEMY have commenced the songwriting process for the band's next studio CD. "We've got nine or ten songs [so far]," revealed Amott. "It's sounding really heavy. We want it to be more intense than the last record. We've seen with a lot of other bands that are considered to be our peers, I think they kind of seem to be going in a softer direction. I haven't heard much, but the odd track on a sampler or whatever, what people have told me, they've gone in that direction. So yeah, we just want to keep it intense. But its just going to be the same kind of progression we've had with every album. We just kind of pour all our creativity into it without really thinking about it too much. But we'll basically stay heavy and intense." The as-yet-untitled album, which is not expected to surface until late 2003, may also feature guitarist Christopher Amott (Michael's brother) trading off some clean vocals with frontwoman Angela Gossow, according to Michael.
