The Haunted Vocalist Checks In With Post-Ozzfest Update

Ozzfest 2005 has now come to a close but The Haunted's U.S. and Canadian touring insanity continues early next month on The Fury of The Fall tour this October alongside Meshuggah, God Forbid and Mnemic, which leads them directly into a massive European trek with labelmates God Forbid. Their new video for “No Compromise,” taken from their latest critically acclaimed offering "rEVOLVEr," was shot by acclaimed director Roger Johansson (In Flames, Soilwork). Look for it now on Headbangers Ball and Metal Asylum.

Peter Dolving (vocals) checks in with the following post Ozzfest report: “Nine weeks passed and it’s been so intense that we can barely make out what really happened. Ozzfest 2005 was a journey through good old rock n’ roll chaos. Drugs, sex, violence, nudity, slander, backstabbing and handshaking all backed up by a soundtrack of great metal. Sweet. I have these incidents that keep coming back to me: Bury Your Dead stealing golf cars; watching certain people running from the law trippin’ on acid; me playing with The Haunted in front of 8,000 people – naked; The Sharon vs. Dickinson thing; Brian of Black Dahlia Murder getting busted by the cops for getting naked while doing a publicity thing for FUSE TV; Jada Pinkett Smith with the house full of Body Count and Fishbone-legendaries throwing barbecues; As I lay Dying – who wouldn’t let us say FUCK on their bus – well, FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK! Now there I said it.

“All in all, it’s been a great fucking tour, and we’ve made some good friends along the way. I want to thank all those fans who have shown up at the shows and all those of you out there who have picked up our latest album, rEVOLVEr, during the last couple of months; it seems you’re all giving this album a well deserved second running, fuckin’ sweet! Spread the word and we feel honoured to have been able to play in front of so many people this summer. Seeing your faces in the crowd singing along and just tearing shit up warms our ugly insides. Well, we will be back in the U.S. in October together with our brothers Meshuggah and God Forbid, and we hope to see you all then. For now, it’s time to go home for a couple of weeks to reload and cock up again. See you all real soon.”
