Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The highly anticipated third album from this Sacramento band seen touring with SLIPKNOT, SOULFLY, and FEAR FACTORY. Taking metal hardcore to an abstract level similar to DEFTONES, this record is honest, emotional, and chaotic.

Amazon.com

Carpe Diem is a towering achievement. In an age when even the lamest nu-metal bands sound 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 a 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 that have a lurching elasticity, while singer Grady Avenell murders his own larynx in the quest for catharsis. "Saga" and "Alpha Man" are perfectly realized 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

Customer Reviews

Not bad, not good.
Desperate Existence
Most of the songs are very heavy and have strong melodies even without hammering the drums or breaking the strings, you can feel it.

"Alpha Male" the next track, is yet again one of the heaviest songs on this CD.

Ive been a fan of Will Haven for a long time, and have all their albums. It is common knowledge that El Diablo is the best of their earlier albums, and i thought that would still be the case after owning Carpe Diem for a week or so. However it has grown on me to such a degree that i cant actually stop listening to it. Medically a little worrying.
It is a fantastically dark and brooding album. Haven have matured alot and have really become tight. The guitarist is a complete and utter gem, and i do believe he downtunes more than is physically possible. Grady is one of the BEST frontmen that any band could be blessed with. His coolness and his fantastic voice make Will Haven unique, which is a blessing in an age where there is so much drivvle being played on peoples systems.
Carpe Diem is beautifully heavy, and will not dissapoint the Will Haven oldschool fans. It does take a little while to adjust to, but i now feel that its on a par with El Diablo, and there was me thinking theyd never get close to El Diablo again. Thanks for proving me wrong.

I know I said the exact same thing in my review for El Diablo, but the above statement is very true. This album took a while to grow on me, but I now recognise it as their best effort. It's more progressive, it's heavier, and it dabbles more into techno and ambient music and incorporates those styles more efficiently (no more ten-minute "noise" songs). This is the stuff that Soulfly and Chimaera only wish they could do. Although none of the songs are as gripping and anthematic as 'I've Seen My Fate," a song good enough to be included on two different albums, they still pack a powerful punch that leaves you both bloody and wanting more. For proof, listen to "Bats" or "Alpha Male." If you like extreme and grinding, albeit untechnical, music, this is the CD for you.

I don't think Will Haven can top El Diablo, but then again, that's a pretty tough one to beat. While it's not their best effort, it should be enough to keep any Will Haven fan happy. This is a band that you know will never sell out. They'll never change their sound to please record execs and the radio. It features the same elements that made Will Haven such an underground success - screaming, powerful vocals over extremely downtuned guitars and bass. The new drummer isn't quite as good as Wayne Morse, but he can certainly hold his own. But all you drummers be warned - it can be kind of difficult to really hear the drum lines over the loud guitars. Overall, an excellent addition to my CD collection.

I really do not understand why Will Haven never got the attention they deserved. Crap bands like Simple Plan get plenty of attention, and yet bands such as this don't, really. I guess that's the way of the world. If it's catchy, then it's good. But make a person actually try and THINK when they listen to the songs themselves, and it becomes too much. MTV can't handle it, they rarely play any videos and if they do it's mostly (c)rap and other gibberish. These guys actually have talent and if you have a good and un-poserish ear for music, check Will Haven out.

This CD is very highly recommended, not just to Will Haven fans, but to those who want to experience them for the first time. If you're new to Will Haven, i'd say get this first and go backwards from there. This isn't as experimental as their previous album "WHVN", but it's still very worthy.

The only bad thing, as other reviewers have stated, is the repetitiveness of some songs. I actually don't find the riffs repetitive, personally i feel that on some songs the drumming doesn't, or hardly, changes a beat. It just stays the same. The riffs on the other hand, are extremely clean and heavy. Will Haven have a distinctive guitar sound that no one else i can think of has.

Starting off the album pretty slow and dark with "S.H.R", the first time you listen to it you aren't expecting the kick in the face "Saga" throws at you. From there, one of the best tracks on here by far, "Carpe Diem", comes on and it's brutally heavy. Grady Avanell is quite possibly the best screamer for this type of music, this genre, that i can think of. And the riff on "Carpe Diem", as i said, is plain brutal.

"Bats" is quite long at 7:28mins, but is still very listenable and leads into "Dressed in Night Clothes" perfectly. "Dressed in Night Clothes" is headbanging almost straight-away. At about the 2 minute mark, it just rips into a trademark Will Haven down-tuned riff. "Dolph Lundgren" (Named after the crap actor, for a joke i think..) is possibly the heaviest song, all the way through, on this album. Although one of the shortest at 3:22mins.

The next track "Finest Our", another reviewer i read said was the hidden gem on this album, and i'd have to agree. It's great to listen to.

Will Haven is moving into a new direction with this album. From the first dark chords bursting into Saga it gets you hooked. Then it becomes a vast and very solid sound of heavy and technical guitar sounds. Grody's vocals are grinding and harsh, but still catch emotion and melody, screaming and sometimes softly talking his poetic lyrics into the songs.
A true sign of Will Havens progression is Fines Our which is to me the hidden gem of the album. The calm build up and distant sounds just pull you in as the song bursts into conclusion.
Now the downside. It can get a bit repetitive at times. The riffs are excellent, but sometimes go on for just a bit too long. There's a couple of tracks which lack an individual sound. It is distinctive Will Haven, but it's not a distinctive track.
Besides that, this is an excellent album which actually makes me look out to the next one even more. I'm sure that will take some time, but these guys are only getting better. Recommended.
