Will Haven - Voir Dire Cover

File this one under 'utterly devastating'...

Despite the frequent line-up shuffles that have plagued their frustratingly stop-start career to date, Will Haven have spent the past 16 years establishing an enviable musical reputation which ‘Voir Dire’ will only serve to uphold. Utterly bleak and remorselessly heavy, this is an album of such chilling intensity that it makes the band’s numerous acolytes seem almost twee by comparison. What really sets ‘Voir Dire’ apart, however, is a highly sophisticated level of restraint, as they masterfully balance torturous vocal regurgitations with hauntingly minimal instrumentation to create a fully immersive, thoroughly nasty body of work. This satisfies on every conceivable level.
