Talking exclusively to MTV.co.uk singer Gerard Way said, "I'd say there were supernatural forces at work - it felt like we were part of something else, something big and very special."
Guitarist Frank Iero explained, "We stayed in a house in the middle of nowhere to do the pre-production for a month and the easiest way to describe it would be as haunted.
"There were bumps in the night and a lot of unexplained things happening."
Gerard added, "The stress levels were high and there was a lot of anxiety, add to this the fact that we were alienated from everything in that house and it made us crazy."
Fortunately that spooky, stressful month paid off for the boys - this week they look set to go to No 2 with the first single 'Welcome To The Black Parade' and NME just described the album as sitting alongside greats such as Green Day's 'American Idiot' and Nirvana's 'Never Mind.
"We knew it was going to be an important piece of work, we just felt something special was happening," said Gerard.
"For this album to be a "Nevermind" for kids now blows my mind," added Frank. "Our job's done."
