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.

The band released their first album, the self-titled debut The Haunted, in 1998, while signed to Earache Records. Before this, they had released a demo, called Demo ‘97, in 1997. The debut 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.

After the release of the debut 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. Their second album, The Haunted Made Me Do It, released in 2000, was more melodic and resembled the Gothenburg style (with bands such as At The Gates, etc.) more than old-school thrash metal that was used on The Haunted. The Haunted Made Me Do It topped CMJ Loud Rock Radio Chart in four weeks, and won a Swedish Grammy for Best Hard Rock Album.

    My copy of the limited edition of 'Exit Wounds' arrived, so here are my thoughts. The new album is imo as good as 'Made Me Do it' and 'One Kill Wonder', two classics...didn't expect it to be that good after the weaker Versus and the leaving of one of the Bjoerlers and Dolving and the drummer. I grew to like 'Unseen' eventually, but it didn't happen fast, initially I fucking hated that album. 'Exit wounds' is better than the 3 albums that came before it (yes, including 'The Dead Eye'), that's what I think. Shame they couldn't make such albums with Dolving after 'Revolver'...'Exit Wounds' is one of the best albums released this year, gonna be hard for others to top this album as far as thrash goes.

    be sure to check out The Resistance's album too, basically the same band just with Jesper Stromblad instead of the At The Gates guys.

    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
