Peter Dolving has left The Haunted for the second time, reports, and this time, it's likely for good. In a statement on his Facebook page, the singer hinted at longstanding friction with the Swedish metal crew, which he joined in 1997.

"I am officially quitting THE HAUNTED," he wrote. "After years of working with the band, I am out. I have had it. I will NOT answer questions to why. It's no one else's business. Thank you very much. I am looking forward to seeing you people at other shows with other projects."

The remaining members confirmed his departure in a press release, though they, too, refused to elaborate on what led the ace screamer to leave the fold.

"Peter has decided to leave THE HAUNTED permanently," the statement reads. "We don't have any more news or info for you regarding this at the moment, but stay tuned for future updates. We just wanted to put and end to all the rumors out there."

After lending his impassioned vocals to the group's 1998 self-titled debut, Dolving left the group for five years. He rejoined in 2003 and sang on a string of studio albums that culminated with last year's 'Unseen.'
