This review is from: Carpe Diem (Audio CD)
I played this CD today (after not listened to it in a while) and I felt compelled to write a review for it. I dunno what it is about Will Haven's music that compells me in a way other metal bands don't. You'd swear at certain points on this CD that you've heard a riff on another of their equally excellent records, but therein lies the point...Will Haven's music is heavy but at the same time has a very hypnotic quality to it. Carpe Diem for me is different to the previous albums - the trademark screams and flange-drenched guitars are still there but there is a real emphasis on the stacato single string riffs. Whereas El Diablo was a relentless face melter of a record Carpe Diem has a much more WEIRDER vibe. I have no other way to describe it, but I mean it in a positive way :)
Orignal vocalist Grady Avenell (so I've heard) is now re-joining the band for a second time after Jeff Jaworski picked up vocal duties in 2007. On the strength of this album let's hope Will Haven pick up where they left off and give us another amazing piece of work.
