    The Haunted is a thrash metal band with melodic death metal influences, formed in 1996. The original members were Patrik Jensen (alsomember of Witchery) on guitar, Jonas Björler (bass), Adrian Erlandsson (drums), Anders Björler (guitar), and Peter Dolving (vocals). Both of theBjörler brothers and Erlandsson were members of seminal melodic death metal band At the Gates, a pioneering force in the Swedish death metalscene. All members (past and present) are from Gothenburg, Sweden, with the exception of Patrik Jensen, who is from Linköping, Sweden, andPer Möller Jensen, who is from Denmark.

    The Haunted combines the sounds of 1980s Bay Area thrash metal acts like Metallica and Forbidden, as well as Los Angeles thrash metalbands Slayer and Dark Angel, with the local Swedish death metal stylings of such bands as Dark Tranquillity. There is also some influence fromhardcore punk, most noticeable in the vocals.

    The latest album, The Dead Eye of 2006 displays a heavily melodic, slowed down, and melancholic approach (in terms of both musicianship andsong writing) which was introduced in rEVOLVEr. Also a darker approach to Peter Dolving's lyrics was introduced with content like dogma andhis own cynicism.
