Will Haven's Carpe Diem is a towering achievement. In an age when even the lamest nu-metal band sounds like the devil stubbing his toe in the depths of hell, the true yardstick of quality isn't anger or aggression, but precision. Sacramento four piece Will Haven, who've toured with the Deftones and Limp Bizkit and been feted by Slipknot, know exactly how to turn a whisper into scream. Drawing on a set of influences that stretch beyond metal into the taut dynamics of hardcore, Carpe Diem is a punishing yet exhilarating journey into the heart of noise. Simple melodies are set aside for grooves and riffs with a lurching elasticity, while singer Grady Avenell throws up his own larynx in the quest for catharsis. "Saga" and "Alpha Man" are perfectly realised examples of post nu-metal hardcore, and "Bats" even drifts in a brief moment of Labradford-style post-rock before leaping back into the fray. This willingness to experiment may rob the band of real mass appeal but, like System of a Down, Will Haven take rock into exciting new realms. --Ian Watson

Format: Audio CD my reviews of other will haven albums and youll catch the drift of thir style.
the quiet bits are even more beautiful and the heavy riffs even more disgusting than anything theyve released before.when i first heard the tracks carpe diem and miguel, i thought, oh no, the new drummer has spoiled the best band in the world.but then when i heard the rest of the album i realised that mitch wheeler has become such an important part in will haven with his hypnotic drumming.and jeff irwin has outstripped his previous efforts with more layers, and the most disgustingly heavy style.there are parts of Carpe Diem that are just so brutally heavy that you wonder what the future of metal is, and parts which are so unheavy that they take your breath away with their structure.they are hard to describe, but the part on finest our where everything reaches a climax, goes silent, and before you realise it has come back still amazes me.the best part of any song ever.Grady has taken a more upbeat stance in his lyrics, but you wouldnt guess it the way he bellows them out, and mike martin's bass is as important as any other part, but seems to take a back seat on this album.thank god their contract with revelation has ended with this album, for now they may get some proper support from a label that believes in them in the US.what they are doing treating a band as important as will haven with such little respect is nothing more than marks to eric stenman on his production skills which have enhanced will haven's sound tenfold. This may be a too strong a statement for many, but to me, carpe diem makes 99.9% of modern metal obsolete, such is its power and grace.

Format: Audio CD
formed back in 1995 will haven set out top change the face of metal.after the release of a self-titled ep there was "el diablo" which kicked and screamed its way out of the underground scene.after tour supports with deftones and other top acts came "whvn" another sonic bashing
all important 3rd album carpe diem sees the band reverting back to their "el diablo"sound.except this album is much better that the debut.highlights include 'saga','dressed in night clothes' and 'miguel...'. 'miguel..'is one of the heaviest songs the band has ever recorded and it has the most perfect ending.
the production of this is probably the best of the 3 with eric stenman gaining a clearer sound that with the white-noise like reverberations of 'whvn'

Format: Audio CD
Ive been a Will Haven fan for a good long time, after picking up one of their records by chance several years ago. At that time it was the heaviest stuff i had in my collection, and took some listening to. This album is similar to other Will Haven efforts, but it is much darker. The guitar effects, the vocals, all have this deathly sound about them. Dark, brooding, uncomfortable. This album is techincially superb. The downtuning on the guitars is near illegal, the bass rasps malevolently in the background while Grady shreds his vocal chords for all to hear. The drumming is precise and trance inducing. The structure of Will Havens songs is so waterproof that you can end up being drummed into a trance by powerful and unforgiving riffs and technical, electronically superb guitar work.This album doesnt have time to relent, it works harder and harder. Eventually giving a break for a *fantastic* semi-instrumental track. Its a slow, spacey and dark track, long, with a near military drum beat. The guitar effects, phasers and delay whirls around your head as you listen, and slowly tune in to Will Haven. After a pause, Grady with a muffled effect breaks the 'silence' and does what he does best - scream. By this point you know the album is good, you know they know it, you know everyone should know it.. you know it belongs in your collection - if only to sit there and mock those that claim to be heavy. Only to laugh at those bands who try so hard and fall short of the line. Will Haven have outdone themselves again, and made a better album here than their previous attempt. And that cannot be a bad thing. Be a part of the darkness, and be a part of the sinfully dirty riffs..

In short, this album is one of my all time favourites. But Will Haven aren't for the faint hearted! In my opinion nothing else sounds like this band, and this is due to the singer's (Grady) unbelievable voice and the unique guitar setup. The screaming is definitely the best I've ever heard, being well removed from the cliched metal 'roar', instead it is an instrument in itself, fantastic in its precision and genius in its structure. The intensity of the sound as a whole is stunning. In a sense, Will Haven specialise in using repetition and juxterposition to create a sonic landscape that draws you into the songs. The unique heavy, but low on fuzz sound of the guitar and the strumming pattern characterise most songs on Carpe Diem.
The structuring of the album itself is excellent. The first track has a creepy bit of deep bass and tinny guitar notes that fade out, only for the crushing power of 'Saga' to shatter the silence with unmatched brutality. Other tracks like Carpe Diem, Miguel..., Dressed in Night Clothes, Alpha Male and the brilliant exit track of Moving to Montana are all of the highest quality. Overall, this is a must buy for anyone into heavy music (I myself jumped from Nirvana into WHVN) or music that is based around creating a wall of sound rather than the generic heavy stuff you hear on the radio. Given the style of this band I would suggest giving the album a few listens over several days to allow your ears to adjust to the genius!
