The 52-year-old singer, who’s presently the CEO of Svenska Verde AB, a Swedish med-tech agency specializing in cannabinoid API, mirrored on his exit from the group in a mannequin new interview with Pierre Gutiérrez of Rock Talks.
Requested if he’s nonetheless in contact with any of the members of THE HAUNTED, Peter talked about (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I’ll give you a tragic and reliable straight reply: I’ve persistently tried, and I even met a couple of of them on the street. I’ve had a sympathetic few conferences with Per [Möller Jensen, drums] — each factor all good, all love. With the other guys, they’ve carried out one factor… They’ve carried out nothing; that may be a larger phrase for it. They’ve gone completely darkish and silent, and I imagine it’s type of sad and childish, nevertheless all people has to handle their emotions spherical one factor their method and all people’s views are going to be completely completely different.
“I’m very expressive and super delicate and emotive, and I deal with abstracts on very many ranges,” he continued. “I’ve studied philosophy, psychology, psychiatry. I come off as loopy — I do know that, and I try to steer clear of that. Nevertheless I’m a bit so much, I imagine, for [some people]. And there may be nothing mistaken with that. We’re completely completely different. We’re merely human beings. We really are completely completely different.”
When Gutiérrez recognized that Dolving shared an offended public publish on Fb in August 2012 throughout which he “insulted” the other members of THE HAUNTED “in quite a few strategies,” Peter talked about: “I tried to insult them in 4 different methods. [Laughs] If I’d have been within the similar room, I’d have kicked all of them inside the fucking balls so that they fell down. You presumably can’t do that in a method the place you’ll be able to do it and in addition you kick all people inside the balls on the same time the place they fall down on the same time. I did that as an announcement to mark that these dudes are assholes. End of story. So what do I indicate with ‘assholes’? I indicate that these dudes don’t play straight, and that’s my assertion about that. They may do one thing they want; it’s their enterprise. I was moreover a part of that enterprise, nevertheless I was at the moment out. I labored to talk sooner than I left the band and made my assertion for over a 12 months. I tried to find a stability in what was occurring. It was based totally in a battle that started even sooner than I rejoined the band.
“The reason I left the band was that we now have been so completely completely different and our main human desires as folks have been so completely completely different,” he continued. “And I’m not the particular person to get in anyone’s method or take away from them their desires, nevertheless I would really like my human desires revered, principally.”
Requested why chosen to delete his Fb publish inside only some weeks of sharing it, Dolving talked about: “Because of the intention of it was carried out. There is no degree of it to easily be hanging spherical there and a bunch of people to be misunderstanding what’s [contained in it], on account of people are not gonna understand. It was very, very significantly directed to the enterprise and the people involved. I was making an announcement and stating that ‘that’s the rationalization. Everyone is conscious of the slender particulars, nevertheless these are the first fundamentals that made me stand due to this.’ As soon as extra, with the phrase ‘asshole,’ that’s my strong emotive reactive negativity, and I really must let it go.
“We’re so completely completely different in reactivity to the world spherical us, and I didn’t know this and I didn’t respect this 10 years previously,” Peter talked about. “After 10 years of studying psychiatry and psychology, on prime of what I already knew, I cannot justify that place. [Laughs] It’s a judgmental and a harmful type of place, so it’s an offended place, so I cannot justify it and I cannot keep on to it. And the one issue I can say that it’s true that I can switch onward, that it isn’t before now, is the excellence and the which means and your complete degree of why I’m doing what I’m doing now.”
In his August 2012 assertion explaining his exit from THE HAUNTED, Dolving talked about that he left the band on account of he “had fucking had it with dysfunctional bullshit.” He went on to say that he “deeply question[ed]” whether or not or not the Björler brothers, THE HAUNTED guitarist Anders Björler and bassist Jonas Björler, had “the slightest clue what deep loving friendships, pleasure and caring is even about. They suppose in relation to ‘me, me, me, me, mine, mine’ to the fullest and most full.” He referred to as Anders and Jonas “two of basically essentially the most fucked up, emotionally dysfunctional gadgets of shit I’ve ever labored with,” together with that “one issue they’re going to on no account ever have as soon as extra is my respect, my perception or care.” He moreover claimed that there have been “medication involved contained in the band, and crew members whose alcoholism/drug abuse was merely uncared for and ignored on account of the folks in question was cheaper than anyone else and delivered the merchandise.”
