At this point it would perhaps be entirely fair to consider Will Haven to possess legendary status. Forming in 1995 and releasing such classic album as ‘El Diablo’, ‘WHVN’ and ‘Carpe Diem’, not to mention having shared the stage with the likes of Coalesce, Vision of Disorder, Neurosis, Slipknot, Earth Crisis, Dillinger Escape Plan and Deftones, Will Haven really have done it all. Or so it would have seemed…..
Now returning with ‘Voir Dire’, their first album in 10 years with Grady Avenell on vocals, Will Haven have taken a darker, deeper, hell-tuned direction. Building upon the bands sonic history, this is by far the biggest, most ominous, riff-laden Will Haven album to date. The album also marks the debut of Chris Fehn (Slipknot) within the bands ranks on bass. Which is pretty cool, isn’t it?
But besides all of these facts – I feel honoured to be giving this album its only vinyl release. Having been a fan of the band since the release of El Diablo in 1997, it is an absolute privilege to be releasing one of my favourite bands of my childhood, who greatly influenced both my musical taste and musical path.
With retooled artwork, deluxe vinyl packaging and 3 vinyl colours available, this really should be a highlight of Holy Roar so far….
