The Haunted – The Haunted Made Me Do It

This is not only the best record from The Haunted, (let’s go ahead and get this out of the way) it’s the second-best At The Gates record. What’s more, (let’s get this out of the way too) I love Marco Aro’s voice sooooo much more than Peter Dolving’s voice. It’s not that Dolving’s a bad singer, I’m certainly glad that he returned to the band on rEVOLEr, but Aro is the shit.

I could go on and on about this album. The Bjorler brothers have never sounded tighter. M. Jensen rules. They go from those huge, soaring melodies to those kick-in-the-crotch breakdowns so effortlessly. No wonder there was a tidal wave of pretenders after this came out. CAN’T TAKE THE FUCKING PAIN! BURY YOUR DEAD!

The Haunted Made Me Do It is one of this decade’s best albums. It’s one of the greatest Swedish Death Metal albums ever, even if it’s not pure death metal. This is the best shit ever. The Haunted Made Me Do It is highly, highly recommended for anyone alive or anyone who has been alive at some point.
