5.0 out of 5 stars Will Haven outdo themselves AGAIN, 24 Dec. 2001
This review is from: Carpe Diem (Audio CD)
wow.read 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 shocking.top 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 25 Minutes of top class Metallic Hardcore, 27 Sept. 2001
this album comes in and kicks you in the face. just what you want really. the connecticut hardcore lot release their first full length album through victory, and of the 14 tracks, not one of them is bad. not much is left to the imagination from start to finish, as it just obvious, all out hardcore.recommended to all fans of the metal/hardcore genre, and with high profile fans such as sepultura, soulfly and will haven, as well as their recent appearance on the main stage of the US Ozzfest, their upcoming release will have a much larger impact than satisfaction... has had---although this may be because they are currently inking a deal with a mystery major label through which to release the album. lets hope thats the only thing to have sold out about this band.
