Sacramento noise metal legends Will Haven have premiered the first single from their forthcoming sixth full-length album, Muerte, via Revolver. The dense, atmospheric and sludgy new track is titled “El Sol” and features guest guitar from Deftones‘ Stephen Carpenter. Guitarist Jeff Irwin told Revolver about the song’s construction:
“If Will Haven and Deftones had a kid, that’s what it would sound like,…I was in my first band with Stephen. This was really a family thing. While we were in the studio, he sent us an email with an eight-minute song of all riffs. I added the spacey elements. Our vocalist, Grady, is reciting this famous poem about being kind to your fellow man and taking care of each other. Lyrically, it fits the times.”

Muerte will be released on March 23. Pre-order here.
