Dark Tranquillity is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg. They are the longest-standing band from the original Gothenburg metal scene, and are one of the most integral pioneers of the melodic death metal genre of music. Dark Tranquillity was formed in 1989 by vocalist and guitarist Mikael Stanne & guitarist Niklas Sundin, who looked at their influences and then decided to form their own band under the name Septic Broiler. Not long after, three additional members, Anders Fridén, Anders Jivarp and Martin Henriksson, joined the line-up. In 1990, the band recorded a demo cassette tape entitled Enfeebled Earth before they would change their name to Dark Tranquillity and change their musical style. Haven is the fifth full-length studio album released by Dark Tranquillity in 2000. It continued to advance the musical changes started on their previous album. A mix of melody, electronic pads, and heavy metal gave new fans to the band, but also became criticized by old melodic death fans that disliked the genre. Niklas Sundin has stated that this is his least favourite Dark Tranquillity album (this is also the only Dark Tranquillity album where he does not receive any songwriting credit), but has also mentioned that "Emptier Still" is his favourite song from the album. This is the first Dark Tranquillity release with Martin Henriksson becoming a full-time rhythm guitar player plus Michael Nicklasson & Martin Brändström recording with the band.
