    Hi there.....I was wondering that would be a good idea for you guys to share and tell us how and when did you get into THE HAUNTED........

    Ok, I discovered the band about two years ago, when a friend of mine gave me a Metal Collection CD, and I heard a song called CHASM, and It blew my head off.!!!!!! Then I discovered that the name of the band was The Haunted and featured ex - At The Gates members and stuff.....
    What about you?

    Cheers

    One of my mates gave me a compliation CD about a year or so ago(can't remember what one it was called but there were a load of other Earache bands on there), and I listened to Bury Your Dead. Ever since then I've been hooked :D

    Sweden rules!

    Just went to the local cd store and picked a cd and bought it blindly. I do that often and although there is a big risk of buying a really bad album or to get unhappy (the last Rhapsody album) I haven't got all that misleaded

    I downloaded Made Me Do It at first,and I never managed to listen to it to this day,maybe I will soon. Once One Kill Wonder came out I listened to Godpuppet and it blew me off. Rest is history. :)

    My friend has a souce of constant good bands we've never heard of. The Haunted was introduced to me through this friend before THMMDI came out so probably during the later half of 99.

    I had heard of them for a long time & been told of how great they were so I finally got their first album and it kicked ass! Got the other albums as well after that... Since I saw them live a few months ago I will love them forever.

    I really liked At The Gates, and I heard The Haunted was the new band of the Bjorler brothers.

    Right after THMMDI was released. I heard Hallowed Ground on BW&BK's KnuckleTracks compilation disk and it kicked my ass to the moon and back! It's probably still my fave The Haunted track.

    I heard of them on an Iced Earth message board...and I saw that they were coming to town so I downloaded some MP3s.

    Looks like I'll hopefully be seeing them June 7th.
