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

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything old is new again November 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes it can be pretty easy to start overanalyzing a metal album (or any other album, for that matter). The astounding technical explorations of bands like Meshuggah and the Dillinger Escape Plan have taken heavy music into new territory over the past decade or so, adding an intellectual element that few people probably saw coming when mullets were ruling the scene two decades ago. With some albums, though, it's still appropriate to ask yourself a few simple questions in order to judge its quality. To wit: does it make you want to lower your head and run into a wall? Does it provide an outlet for your more aggressive tendencies that won't land you in prison? Do you find yourself suddenly making the devil sign when playing it? Does it make your cat run and hide under the bed? (Note: this question may not apply to all listeners). Anyway, the Haunted's latest release is one such album, and the answer to all of the above questions is fortunately a resounding yes.

With original vocalist Peter Dolving and his demented shriek back on the mic after a two-album hiatus, the Haunted have released yet another classic piece of metallic goodness. While rEVOLVEr isn't a dark, disturbing masterpiece in the vein of its predecessor One Kill Wonder, it does deliver the goods with a mix of warp-speed thrash and crushingly heavy, more groove-laden stuff. Naturally, the musicianship is top-notch, sounding a lot like Slayer without the goofy excess that has marked even that band's better work. Pushing the Haunted's trademark intensity to almost pornographic levels, the songs on rEVOLVEr are marked mainly by the band's devastating two-guitar onslaught and some of the tightest and most maniacal drumming this side of the grindcore genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great example of what this band can do June 9, 2005
By meh
Format:Audio CD
With The Haunted, the Bjorler brothers add a more metalcore singer and sound to their music. And what do the originators of Gothenburg do when they have a run in with the americanized version of the genre they started?

They kill it.

This is in every conceivable way better than Slipknot, Killswitch Engage or basically any other metalcore/mallcore band that has been made to this day.

Why you may ask?

Because they add genuine anger to their music, and not just manufactured angst to sell records to angry teenagers. They also have musical talent, with the Bjorler brothers's thrashy guitaring(/bassing) and Adrian Erlanndsson's amazingly heavy and fast(but not tasteless like Dimmu Borgir) drumming. This album has basically confirmed to me that anything America has done on the metal scene, Sweden has done better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece October 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've always like the haunted, always consdiered their first cd to be a classic...actually all of them are pretty good albums. But I think this one may be better than their first one!

The first thing noticeable about this album is that their first singer PETER DOLVING is back at the helm. Loved marco's stuff with the haunted but always thought dolving was the best. He's got such a good clean voice. He screams and shouts and does it fast at times, gives their music a old school punk feel but without all the gayness that comes along with (most) punk bands (of any time era).

The next thing that pops into focus is the name of the album. It's called revolver. This seems normal, since it's the haunted we are talking about: guns are always mentioned in their albums. But what is this? It's called rEVOLVEr. Don't get scared. This doesn't mean they lost their thrash metal roots and went pop mainstream. But they did evolve a little. There is more to the songs now, some are longer than typical haunted. And dolving sings now! It's the coolest singing voice ever, well one of them. It's got a country serial killer twang to it, has to be heard to be believed.

Another thing they changed is that some of the songs are slower than their past stuff. I don't mean slow as in ballad. The songs still got that thrashy chug chug sound but they put GROOVE and SLUDGE into some of the songs and it sounds GREAT.

Also, the "swedish" feel to their riffs are back. One kill wonder sound more american but this one sounds swedish like their first one.

All in all, this is the biggest suprise of the year for me. album of the year behind the new megadeth and new iced earth.

thrash fans. the haunted fans. metal fans. all must buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Revolver" is smokin' November 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Most all fans would tell you it's great to have Peter Dolving back from a two album hiatus. Even though his vocal style becomes a bit repetitive, he helps make "rEVOLVEr" quite in-your-face. His vocals on this album are reminiscent of, but not quite as intense as Meshuggah's Jens Kidman's. Plus, he's backed by a very strong rhythm section and the beats are steamrolling. Guitarists Anders and Patrick lay down riff after pounding riff, and drummer Per Moller is very quick. But the Haunted are more than just another loud band from Sweden. The guitarists' very tight musicianship and occasional guitar solos help to lift this group well above the average playing field. The album opening track, "No Compromise," has a speedy, groovey guitar attack deft, pounding snare drums, and a brief shout-along refrain. Next, "Sabotage" is an explosion of guitars and thumping drums, "Nothing Right" has pummeling drums, and "Sweet Relief" has rhythmic, punching riffs which hit the listener like a blow to the temple. Finally, "Liquid Burns" has very fast, cascading riffs, and drumming which could pass for a slow jackhammer. So, no matter what genre you call this--melodic death metal, thrash metal, or groove-oriented thrash--it's safe to say that, with "rEVOLVEr," the Haunted shoot down and annihilate the competition. And it's great to have Peter back; "rEVOLVEr" is a superb album, and the only place the Haunted can go from here is up!
