Biography

There is more than one artist that goes by this name.

1) The Haunted is a Swedish heavy metal band, formed in 1996 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The original members were Patrik Jensen (also member of Witchery) (guitar), Jonas Björler (bass), Adrian Erlandsson (drums), Anders Björler (guitar), and Peter Dolving (vocals). Both of the Björler brothers and Erlandsson were members of seminal melodic death metal band At the Gates, a pioneering force in the Swedish death metal scene. All members (past and present) are from Gothenburg, Sweden, with the exception of Patrik Jensen, who is from Linköping, Sweden, Per Möller Jensen, who is from Denmark, and Marco Aro, who is from Finland.

The band released their first album, while signed to Earache Records, the selftitled debut The Haunted, in 1998. Before this, they had also made their demo, called Demo ‘97, in 1997. The album resulted in The Haunted being praised as Newcomer of the Year by several magazines, and the album being called Album of the Year by Terrorizer Magazine. The Haunted made a respectable live reputation staging the Swedish metal scene, as well the international scene, touring the UK with Napalm Death.

After the release of this album, Peter Dolving and Adrian Erlandsson both left the band in 1999, the latter joining Cradle of Filth.

Marco Aro was recruited as a new vocalist and Per Möller Jensen as drummer.

    It's not amazing but it's way fucking better than anything Dolving was on (aside from the first album). That pussy turned a decent band into a sloppy ass country metal band. I can finally look forward to their future albums again

    Love Dolving but the new album is fucking awesome! Doesn't matter who your favourite singer is, if you like The Haunted you'll love Exit Wounds

    Well it's certainly not another Revolver but it's still pretty good. I wish they had released an album like that with Dolving.

    The new album is pretty good although I still prefer Dolving. But this is def the best since Revolver/Dead Eye

    Good to see Unseen was just an ugly misstep in their otherwise fucking sick discography
