    Revolver is the fourth studio album by Swedish metal band The Haunted. This album merges the raw blueprint of their self-titled debut with the slightly more refined and produced sound evident on their subsequent albums. As the album name suggests, the band has evolved on this record. There are more cleanly sung and melodic vocals than ever before, along with the requisite screaming metal-vocals. Even considering this, and the fact that they seem to have put an emphasis on elements of hardcore punk and melodic death metal, Revolver is still very much a modern thrash metal record. There have been criticisms of the album as well. Some people believe that former vocalist Marco Aro was much more suited to the band than Dolving. Dolving's vocals are considered by some to be more hardcore punk and not heavy metal in style. There are also many more down-tempo songs on this album, which is a first for the band. A limited edition digipak of this CD contained two bonus tracks, and different artwork. A music video was made for "No Compromise" which featured Mark Greenway.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Revolver

    rē-volv′ėr, n. that which revolves: a firearm having barrels or chambers which revolve upon a common centre, and are fired in turn by one lock mechanism: a revolving cannon.
