THE HAUNTED Post “D.O.A.” Guitar Playthrough Video

Monday, 19th August 2013

THE HAUNTED guitarists Patrik Jensen and Ola Englund recently took a break from songwriting for the band’s next album to film a playthrough video for the track “D.O.A.” which can be viewed below.

An update reads: “Due to the overwhelming response for the ‘Trespass’ clip, we’ve decided to post another song. This time it’s ‘D.O.A.’, from the One Kill Wonder album. The midi-drum track we found online is insanely rigid and stiff, lacking the dynamics the song would have when the whole band plays the song, but hey… It’s all in the name of good fun, right? Anyway, we enjoyed making this clip. We hope you enjoy watching it too.”

THE HAUNTED recently returned to the spotlight after almost a year without public activity and restructuring behind closed doors, following a major switch of lineups around fall of 2012.

THE HAUNTED’s 2013 lineup:

* Patrik Jensen – Guitar
* Ola Englund (SIX FEET UNDER, FEARED) – Guitar
* Marco Aro (THE RESISTANCE, FACE DOWN) – Vocals
* Jonas Björler – Bass
* Adrian Erlandsson (AT THE GATES, PARADISE LOST) – Drums

THE HAUNTED’s founding member and guitarist Patrik Jensen checked in to comment on the recent developments as follows: “THE HAUNTED went through some difficult times last year. Losing three band members is a pretty huge blow to any band. Jonas and I agreed immediately that we wanted to continue with the band, but we wanted to take our time and not rush into anything. Meanwhile, news from THE HAUNTED’s camp have been pretty scarce.

“We are very happy to be able to present you a full band lineup. Some of you might recognize a few faces, some of you might not. Adrian Erlandsson is back on drums and Marco Aro is back on vocals. Adrian you might know from playing on our first album and Marco sang on ‘The Haunted Made Me Do It’, ‘Live Rounds In Tokyo’ and ‘One Kill Wonder’. On guitar we also have Ola Englund bringing some pretty heavy chops to the band.

“We’re all VERY excited about having THE HAUNTED back in working shape again and we can’t wait to get back out on the road to play for our very patient and faithful fans again. A new album is also already in the works and if you are familiar with the individual band members of this new lineup, you can be assured that the new material will grab you by the throat from the get-go!”
