Surprises 2008: This Haven - Today A Whisper, Tomorrow A Storm

This Haven is a swedish band that mixes from Hardcore to Stoner to Melodic Death to Deppresive Rock Riffs but in a very rock-heavy metal feeling with progressive way of composing. I know you are confused about howcome all this mix could work or maybe just could sound. It's difficult to explain "Today A Whisper, Tomorrow A Storm", but although being the first album of the band it really gives the impression of maturity.
Sound is perfect, and nothing to hesitate if I tell you the producer was Dan Swano, and performance is also great. Voice is clean but with an important Stoner/Jonas Renkse from Katatonia touch, and we can hear in a secondary scene sometimes acoustic guitars or keyboards, even in "Plague" a female voice.
It really is a complete album of hmm I will take the risk :P alternative progressive metal? I tried lol
