Swedish thrashers THE HAUNTED have entered Puk studios in Randers, Denmark to begin recording the drums for their upcoming album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Century Media Records.
Commented guitarist Anders Björler: "Finally, the first day of recording the new album. This is what we all have been waiting for for a long time now. As we have explained in earlier posts, our plan is to record the drums in Puk studio and the rest with Tue [Madsen] in his Antfarm studio (Århus).
"The Puk studio is very nice. Located in the middle of nowhere in the Danish countryside. Not a single house next to it. It generates a nice and relaxed atmosphere for sure. There's nothing to do around the studio. Not a shop or store for miles, so basically all you can do is to concentrate on the recording. So far today we have tried different drums, heads, microphones, mic placements to try to find different approaches to different songs. So far everything is going smooth."

THE HAUNTED's fourth album, "rEVOLVEr", entered the Swedish album chart at position No. 18 upon its release in October 2004. The follow-up to 2003's "One Kill Wonder" was recorded at Gothenburg's famed Studio Fredman (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY) with co-producers Patrik J. Sten and Fredrik Nordström and mixed at Denmark's Antfarm Studio by Tue Madsen. The album was released as jewel-case CD and limited edition digipak (each with a different cover), featuring two special bonus tracks, "Fire Alive" and "Smut King".
