Will Z are a band from the Underworld that plays a very psychedelic form of occult rock/metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Dark Tales Of Will Z" which was released by HeadSpin Records.
A very dark and evil sounding synth starts off the album which also gives the music and atmospheric and ritualistic feeling at times and after the intro spoken word parts and a 70's influenced psychedelic hard rock sound make their way onto the recording along with some elements of proto metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads that are utilized bring a heavy Black Sabbath influence to the recording and while the music has a retro feeling you can hear some later influences along with a modern day production on this recording.
Some of the tracks bring in a 60's gothic horror movie soundtrack at times along with a small amount of operatic female vocals being added on some of the songs and you can also hear a great amount of the more progressive, avant garde and experimental side of 70's rock in the bands musical style throughout the recording and ass the album progresses more acoustic guitars are added into certain sections of the recording and some of the whispered vocals have a black metal feeling to them.
Will Z takes a great amount of musical styles from 70's doom metal, hard rock, psychedelia and acid folk to create a very dark, evil and ritualistic sounding album with a very retro vibe, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Satanism, Alchemy and the writings of J-K Huysman.
In my opinion Will Z are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelia, metal, hard rock and acid folk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan Girl" "My Dark Side" "Ego Ritual" and "Trouble Me". 8/5 out of 10.
