The Haunted - One Kill Wonder (2002) Retail CD
Death Metal/ Black Metal
As they feature several ex-members of At the Gates, you'd expect the Haunted to deliver superior material. But One Kill Wonder, the follow-up to the excellent The Haunted Made Me Do It, is unexpectedly superb. Only 38 minutes in length, it's short but perfectly formed--there are no fillers. And it's not a simple, adrenalin-fuelled rush, either. Tracks blend into one another, piercing guitars meld beautifully with vocal shrieks, grand melodies dominate the awe-inspiring charge. The Haunted claim to be inspired by old-school thrashers like Testament, but their influences clearly stretch back furthermore… to more classically musical outfits like Rainbow and the Scorpions (though they eschew the vocal pyrotechnics of Dio and Klaus Meine). The eastern-tinged dual guitar assaults of "Shadow World" and "DOA" recall the Schenker brothers at their most brutal, while the super-dramatic instrumental "Demon Eyes" fades out with a medieval swing worthy of Ritchie Blackmore. Naturally, of course, One Kill Wonder is also righteously heavy. Few can match the intensity and power of "Urban Predator", "Downward Spiral" and "Bloodletting" and this--with all five members sharing songwriting duties and the same unshakeable firmness of intention--is surely thanks to a genuine group effort. It's quite brilliant. --Dominic Wills
