I heard a demo cd from them awhile back Self Titled and Made me do It are pretty good I can't stand the last 2. TheInsane Member. It sounds and feels very pure. The following two arent bad but with the then new vocalist it couldnt match the heights of the debut to me. I did however LOVE "the dead eye" which generally seems to be a albm you either really like or dont like at all. I tried to get into the latest one "versus" and I have given it several chances during a long time. The riffs are not as muddy sounding and most of the intense speed has been replaced with thought out placement of the guitars.
The melody is really what caught me off guard. You can have dark atmospheric music without melody and I thought that was what The Haunted would be doing….
Vocally, Peter Dolving really brings a new layer to The Haunted. He may not be the greatest vocalist to begin with never was but he does what he can on the album. He has the barking style that The Haunted is used to but he also varies it with some low tone singing and catchy choruses.
Lyrically is where Dolving really shines. He presents listeners with dark and usually symbolic lyrics. I was really wrapped up in his interesting wording and placement for lyrics. Probably the neatest part of the album is reading the lyrics in the booklet or online while the music plays.
All in all, I think a lot of people got the wrong impression with The Dead Eye. But its all right. Listen with an open mind and you should be golden. And like another reviewer already mentioned, a more experimental approach that was hinted at on Revolver, has been taken to the forefront on The Dead Eye.
The fast tempos, enraged screams, and thrash like riffs and rhythms we are accustomed to hearing from The Haunted have been replaced by mid-tempo riffs and clean vocals that create a dark moody atmosphere more akin to the Cure. In fact, a lot of what this album sounds like is The Cure meeting head on with Slayer-a strange mix that oddly enough works here. The song writing on this album has eclipsed anything The Haunted has done before. The songs are well thought out and thoroughly arranged creating melody and mood, rather than the ol' cut and paste riffing.
The songs here take the listener for a ride through heavy riffing, textured layering, odd phrasing and melody, as well as other pleasing surprises. If fans are expecting a typical Haunted record then they will be extremely disappointed. You have to listen to this album for what it is. Terrible album though. I enjoyed this album but their's nothing special here.
Album Rating: 4. A lot of the bands stay on that path and it can become stale quickly. They really seem to get the balance between heavy and mellow right here. Are these guys any good? Ive been meaning to give it a listen. Im always open to listening to new thrash bands. Album Rating: 3. Thanks dude, ill check em out hopefully. I agree the last few tracks are not good at all, but there's something about the general sound so strange and mystic The only fitting word I can find for it is "Haunted".
Sad that this is the last good album they made. Maybe the next one will change that, though Dolving will be sorely missed. The Haunted The Dead Eye 3. Total length:.
