Peter Dolving quits The Haunted

Just 30 minutes ago Peter Dolving wrote the following statement on his Facebook page:

“I am officially quitting The Haunted. After years of working with the band, I am out. I have had it. I will NOT answer questions to why. It’s no one elses business. Thank you very much. I am looking forward to seeing you people at other shows with other projects.”

Well that’s something I didn’t see coming. Dolving already left The Haunted once in 1998 and returned in 2003. Last year, the band released Unseen, the band’s biggest critical flop.


The Haunted live at Wacken

The Haunted have released a new live video for the track ‘No Ghost’. It doesn’t sound live, but allegedly it is, so I guess there has been some great mixing done… Just a shame the song (and video too for that matter) kind of sucks, you know?  But I’ll save the “they should have stuck to their heavy Thrash roots” rant for the hundreds of posters on Blabbermouth.

The clip was filmed at Germany’s Wacken Open Air festival in August 2011 by Marcel Schleiff of Record Film and was edited by Anders Björler of At The Gates Production.

Read Blabbermouth for more information.


Jonas Björler talks The Haunted, At The Gates and shit

Greece’s Rock Overdose recently interviewed The Haunted (and At The Gates) bassist Jonas Björler. The chat can now be streamed over at Blabbermouth. Well, in theory it can, but the audio player wouldn’t work for me… Maybe it will for you, I don’t know. Who cares though, right? It’s not like the chat will be remotely interesting anyways…


Weak Recap: Mark your territory

Last week’s been all about Mark. He’s posted the most posts (read: all of them) because everyone else was busy. He’s taken one for the team and spent less time watching porn and more time writing for the site.

So it seems fitting that this weekend I get to interview him and ask him what he thinks on (mostly) his posts from this week.

Actually, we just have an order of interviewing each other for this self-indulgent and shitty awesome Weak Recap thing, and it just so happens that it’s Mark’s turn to be interviewed. Last week he interviewed me.

Make the jump and read the interview with the most amazing DoM writer (after myself and the other guys).

P.S. = That’s not Mark and his girlfriend above. Mark’s girlfriend is much fatter.


Blast from the Past: The Haunted – The Dead Eye

The Haunted were once a well respected Metal act, but that all began to change with the return of original vocalist, Peter Dolving, in 2004. That isn’t to say Dolving is a worse, or even bad vocalist, because he isn’t. The fact is though, some of his online rantings have proven to rub some Metal fans (particularly Blabbermouth users) the wrong way. In addition to this, his return to the band also came at the same time when the band decided to explore other territories, that haven’t gone down well with everyone. Whilst 2004’s rEVOLOVEr was met with almost universal critical acclaim, not everyone was a fan, and when The Dead Eye was released in 2006, there was even less fans, including the critics.

Fast forward 5 years, and The Haunted have just released, arguably, their worst album yet (if you choose to believe the internet). 2008’s Versus didn’t have many fans either, and most people point to The Dead Eye as the point in which everything started to go wrong. So with that in mind, it’s about time I had a hard look at this album myself and offered my own opinion on this controversial album. Make the jump for the review.
