Peter Dolving (born 24 October 1969) is a Swedish musician, songwriter, visual artist and spoken word poet, now living in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil[2] and is most commonly known as the former frontman of the metal band, the Haunted.


Dolving began as a singer-songwriter playing in cafes in Sweden. He joined the band Mary Beats Jane and organized raves to support himself. He then opened the highly successful rock club called "Underground" in the basement of restaurant Kompaniet, Gothenburg. Mary Beats Jane released their first album in 1994 and toured through 1997. Dolving has said Mary Beats Jane will never re-form.[3]

Dolving then joined Swedish heavy metal band The Haunted in 1997 with former members of At The Gates (at the time they were experimenting with the name Death & 1/2 Prod.), supporting himself by drawing fetish art and working as a carpenter. He left The Haunted after the first album, then returned in 2004 on the album rEVOLVEr. He eventually formed The Peter Dolving Band to perform his own songs and wrote spoken-word material for the short film No Justice No Peace by Jonas Olsen. The Peter Dolving Band no longer exists, with that style of music taken up by his BringTheWarHome[3] project. Recently Dolving incited the wrath of some Metal fans with his unique soul-searching and frequent ranting in the Blog section of his official MySpace page.[citation needed] A candid interview with him appears in the documentary Working Class Rock Star. In 2011 Dolving joined the Swedish hardcore band Rosvo.[4]

On 29 February 2012, Dolving announced on his personal Facebook page that he is officially leaving The Haunted

Dolving has resumed work on musical project entitled "O" with Scott Reeder.[5]

Dolving has in several interviews stated that he considers himself an anarchist.[6][7]
