Biography

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrashtastic! (Ahem) 15 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
I Received this through the post today, and it is utterly superb! I always slightly preferred the first Haunted album to the second, whilst the second had the beefier production. One Kill Wonder mixes the best of both of their previous albums to create an album that combines the speed and thrashiness of the first, with the state-of-the-art production of the second. I have no doubt that this will become one of my most listened to CD's in the coming weeks. In an age where there's so much commercial crap out there mascarading as rock/metal/whatever, it's so good to hear a modern band embracing metal, but in a thoroughly modern up to date way. This is an excellent album by an excellent band and everyone should own it. Really.

By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
ah the haunted,one of swedens finest thrash metal bands,thats what they are folks,granted part of the band were part of at the gates and deserve praise for the gothenberg sound but this isnt what the haunted do,they are simply thrash metal and this is their most intense and angry album,its true that slayer fans will gobble this up but the haunted deserve their own plaudits,after this album the original singer returned and order was restored but this is heavy so dont be afraid

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrash is back in a big way! 7 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Little can be said to glorify The Haunted. They already co-own the thrash metal circuit with institutions like Slayer. This album out ranks their previous recordings so severely it almost makes them obsolete. The album is fast paced technicality at its finest. The musical execution is delivered with such surgical accuracy that by comparison a laser is a highly misguided instrument.
Tracks such as D.O.A and Demon Eyes make you rekindle your love for Metal as if you were listening to it in awe for the first time!
With unparallel ferocity The Haunted deliver their finest performance and creation to date. Not buying this album would make you a POP fan by nature. If you enjoy bands such as Slayer, Dimmu Borgir, Nile and Pantera you CANNOT afford to miss this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars large and loud 19 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
this album is good but in my opinion its not as good as either of the previous efforts, some decent tracks are on this album but some you think could be so much better than they are, maybe its because of the high standard they have set themselves on the two previous albums? who knows. its good and well worth a listen but if you have the money buy "they made me do it" instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first classic of 2003 is here! 26 Feb 2003
By Wheelchair Assassin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although The Haunted's first two albums were both excellent, apparently they were just warmups for "One Kill Wonder." The Haunted's third album certainly isn't a departure from their modernized version of old-school thrash metal, but it distinguishes itself by being even faster, darker, and more malevolent than its predecessors. With a sound honed as sharp as a Samurai sword, and every bit as lethal, "One Kill Wonder" is doubtless one of the most superbly crafted metal albums released so far this decade. While some melodic elements do creep in, speed and heaviness are the name of the game here. Never have the band's often-mentioned parallels to Slayer been more apparent: "One Kill Wonder" is so devastating in its precision, and so unrelenting in its aggression, that any comparisons to classics like "Reign in Blood" and "Divine Intervention" are completely fitting. Marco Aro screams like a man possessed, Jensen and Anders Bjorler unveil a nonstop stream of thunderous riffs and ear-piercing solos, and Per Jensen's drumming is downright machinelike. Jonas Bjorler's bass isn't as audible as I'd like, but when everything else is so good it's easy to overlook. "Godpuppet," the first song after the intro, crams more sonic mayhem into two minutes than I would've thought possible, and the band rarely missteps from there. They don't slow things down until the fifth track, "D.O.A." and even then the result is a crushingly heavy song, filled with violent riffing and tortured vocals. I could rave about every song, but they're all no less than excellent, so I'm not going to bother. Now stop reading and buy buy buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genre Defining 7 Jun 2005
By Sean D. Gerstenlauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My taste in music runs the gamut from Abdullah Ibrahim to Hank Williams Jr., but even the most open mind can be tested by some of the more extreme metal bands that have marched on the scene over the years. Bands like Deicide and Mortal Sin come to mind; Beavis and Butthead-cum-Anton LaVey Satanic lyrical content, and three to four cord riffs played really fast over blast drumming. You can play it on an Ipod but if you ever let anyone else listen to it, they'd call you a idiot, even if they enjoyed heavy metal music.

Many of the bands I've been exposed to in recent years hailing from the Swedish Metal scene are different. They are in many ways equally as extreme, but more than a few of them display a level of musicianship and songwriting ability that at its best, is as brilliant as anything found in any genre. And The Haunted on this album are the best example.

Anyone who says there is no correlation between music and feelings of aggression ought to listen to track #9 so perfectly titled "Sh#thead", and if you've done so without robbing a liquor store by the end of the song I withdraw this review. Incredible drumming and guitar, and track after track of the most catchy and brutal riffs, its as if the group managed to meld every bonecrushing metal lick you've ever heard or even imagined on one album. You get used to the semi-cookie monster scream vocals and once they grow on you, you're hooked. Skip their new one and get this album now!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Haunted - 'One Kill Wonder' (Earache) 5 Feb 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
'One Kill Wonder' is the Swedish death metal band's third release, it's an okay effort, that is if you like the genre. Tunes that I thought were decent enough are "Privation Of Faith, Inc.", the in-your-gut slammin' "Demon Eyes", "Sh**head" and "Bloodletting". Line-up: Marco Aro - vocals, Anders Bjorler - guitar, Jonas Bjorler - bass and Adrian Erlandsson - drums. Just might appeal to fans of At The Gates, Dark Angel, In Flames and Testament.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violence comes to mind 7 Jun 2005
By Matt Philth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you like Slayer you need to check this out. If you like the gothenberg sound, you need to check this out, and if you are just a fan of violence in general you need to purchase this album immediately! One Kill Wonder may not be ground breaking musically (although these guys are extremely talented musicians) but what this album has is a vibe that can only be described as "unabashed violence". The speed, precision and aggression that is displayed on this album is just for lack of a better word AWESOME. The guitarwork is spectacular and dynamic, the drumming is possessed and tight as hell. What really brings this album together is Marco Aro's vocals, the guy is a beast and his gutteral yells truly complete this symphony of slaughter. The lyrics are sharp, and the subject matter perfectly fits the mold of the music, absolutely sick! So please for the love of all that is unholy, buy this masterpiece of madness and enjoy metal the way it was meant to sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrash Metal lives on!!! 23 April 2003
By Total Scumbag - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you want a brutal assault of death/thrash metal than look no further than The Haunted's "One Kill Wonder". This album starts out with an excellent guitar riff intro and then breaks into the thrash metal madness. Many of the guitar riffs sound like they came straight from the library of Slayer although heavier and more brutal than anything Slayer ever did. Also, this band takes a more death metal oriented feel to their thrash metal, and you can definitely tell these guys are Swedish, as they contain many similarities to other Swedish death metal bands. The best song on this album is "Shadow World".
