Arising from the ashes of the important mid-'90s Swedish death metal band At the Gates and featuring former members of Witchery and Face Down, the Haunted went through countless lineup changes during the late '90s before finally releasing The Haunted Made Me Do It in 2000, confirming the excitement surrounding the band. Back in 1996, guitarist Anders Bjorler and bassist Jonas Bjorler ... Read more in Amazon's The Haunted Store

Editorial Reviews

Swedish titans The Haunted have returned with a stunning new offering, The Dead Eye, that is sure to surprise, possibly overwhelm, the entire metal community. Since inception, the group have been pigeonholed as a thrash unit, a stigma further solidified by their lineup featuring two ex-members of the legendary At The Gates, but the quintet have continually evolved over the years and strived to create an offering that defied the musical boundaries attached to the genre. With this album The Hounted ultimately prove that their songwriting prowess is indefinable and undeniable hoping to show everyone that within this genre there are no limitations. Includes special hidden track ''The Exit''.

Customer Reviews

Its heavy, aggressive... But, It has melody.
Ryan D Clark
Change is good if the band has the chops and talent to bring something to the table that is emotionally unsettling,thought provoking and full of power and groove.
Mark A. Derasmo
Do you think they hold a band meeting and say "hey guys... lets make music we dont like, because we might sell more albums that way."
Jake Davies

The Haunted's fifth full-length, "The Dead Eye," is the kind of album you'd absolutely love to hate. Consider the history behind it: For the first six years of their career, these five Swedes were making the kind brutal, Slayer-indebted thrash albums that would satisfy all fans, but never attract any new listeners. But then, at the end of 2003, vocalist Marco Aro suddenly and somewhat shockingly left the band; so the door was open for a reunion with original frontman Peter Dolving (who had left the band in 1999). Some fans were sad to see Aro go, and were skeptical of Dolving's vocal abilities. And what's worse than this? The next year, The Haunted added insult to injury by releasing "rEVOLVEr," an undeniably refined and well-produced release with a greater number of slow(er) tempos, and even several spots of clean singing. And now, in 2006, Dolving and the gang are back with "The Dead Eye." Is there any chance the band could forget all about this whole evolving and maturing thing and just go back to the kind of one-dimensional music of old? No way! This is, to date, easily the most experimental and melodic work in The Haunted's discography.

However, as is the case with any "new-sounding" release, your reaction to "The Dead Eye" is almost entirely based on how open minded you are. Unimaginative longtime fans who despised "rEVOLVEr"'s melodic edge will positively loath this album, and think it is a "sell-out" if there ever was one. But if you gave that 2004 release a fair-minded listen, nothing here will shock you, and you are sure to realize that this is just a perfectly natural progression.

This album is nothing short of a masterpiece.

I'm a huge supporter of this band ever since i heard the heavy sick thrash off there 2nd album "Made me do it" this band has grown and grown and my god this album is DIFFERENT....at first listen i was kind of like eh? this is all the haunted had come up with? I loved rEVOLVEr but some of the influences on that album take a huge leap on this, they seem to add more grundge type singing and it works....Fans of the old haunted albums will be turned off i can tell you right now, but if you heard rEVOLVEr and liked what you heard check this out...Its really original and different for a thrashy album....It grew on me and wil be buying SOON!

This album works for me, I really dig the direction The Haunted went on this record, however by looking at the reviews below it is clear that not everyone feels the same way I do. Reading some of the negative reviews made me ask a question "Are these the same people who gushed over rEVOLVEr?" because if they are I don't really see where the complaints are coming from. If you liked rEVOLVEr, than I don't see any reason why you wouldn't like this record considering the seeds were planted for further experimentation with their sound on songs like Abysmal and Burnt to a Shell. If your vision of what The Haunted should sound like is One Kill Wonder (my personal favorite, different review) than I truly can see the validity in your complaints, as this is quite the departure from the violent madness showcased on that CD. Let's just say I agree with the assesment "if you didn't like rEVOLVEr, than forget this one".

I for one liked the last album but didn't love it so I really am having a hard time explaining why I am digging this CD so much. I guess I didn't have high expectations (if any at all) of this CD, and hearing the more rock oriented pieces worked in with the brutal thrash attack just caught me off guard and like I said earlier, it just works for me. I don't think Peter Dolving is a great vocalist but his clean and screamed vocals fit the mold and mood of the music here perfectly. I am also convinced that the guitarists for this band who basically created the melo-thrash riff are probably getting tired of rehashing the same old same old each time out, so I respect them having the gonads to experiment and throw us some curveballs on this one. Fresh ideas are never a bad thing.

I've got this one in frequent rotation. I have a thing for Swedish prog metal and The Haunted inhabit the end of the spectrum where real head-bangers live. Always tight and in the pocket, this new recording adds epic melodies to the thrashing. The result is masterful.

Some reviewers have expressed their disappointment with The Dead Eye and who am I to discredit their grief? The Haunted have changed and people are entitled to their disappointment.

Leave them to pull themselves together while you and I reach new highs with The Haunted.

Sure I'm a little biased--The Haunted have been my favorite band ever since they rose out of the ashes of At The Gates (who I am eternally grateful to for releasing the greatest metal album of all time, Slaughter of the Soul, before calling it quits). While this album is different from the incredible thrash of the previous ones (both Peter and Marco did a great job vocally, but I am glad Peter is back) that is not a bad thing--The Haunted have made a great leap forward in maturity and complexity. One thing I will say before I continue is that you should step up and buy the collectors edition. The two extra songs are instrumentals, but the second one, The Program, makes The Guilt Trip much better, as The Program goes straight into The Guilt Trip as if it was one song. The DVD has 4 videos plus the making of the new album, but is worth having just for All Against All--that video and the song make me bang my head extremely hard!

Back to the review; I always look forward with great anticipation to a new Haunted release, and this was obviously no exception. The first listen definitely rocked, but I was also taken aback a little, especially after the mega-thrash of rEVOLVEr (even though My Shadow kind of set the stage for the changes to be experienced on The Dead Eye). It wasn't a negative reaction, more of a Whoa-this is a bit of a change! type of reaction. However, I haven't been able to stop listening to it since (with the brief exception of the awesome new album by Insomnium, which I will definitely devote more quality time to down the road). The intensity The Haunted is known for is still there, especially on The Flood (track 2), The Medication (track 3), The Drowning (track 4), The Fallout (track 7) and The Stain (track 13, special edition).
