RISE OF THE WILLING are a highly recommendable trio that released their debut "Dark Desert Tales" a few months ago; this 50 minutes long affair quickly reveals several good points that really make them standing out from the masses.

Enhanced by the thick production of desert pioneer Scott Reader, their sound is immensely heavy and adrenalized as fuck with fuzzed-out guitar, powerful drums and rumbling bass...
If there's to think about desert here, it's not only as usual for its sexiest aspects but more for the most rough and painful... Lots of feelings here, the music often reflecting perfectly some angry and critical lyrics dealing about lies of the American government, the stupidity of war(s) and its induced mental alienation, plus other interesting subjects...

The style of the band generally stands between Sludge and Doomy Stoner enveloped with a METAL massiveness; this could sometimes remind a band like Crowbar, but the guys also cite The Melvins, Red Fang, Kyuss, Yob, St Vitus or Prong among their influences.

"We play heavy! Rise of the Willing are about unity, brotherhood and the rise of the working-class. We believe our government lies to us and we use our music as a tool to take a stand against corporate greed. We are Americans for revolution," guitarist/vocalist Kyle Stratton says.

Dark Desert Tales is metal music with a purpose, seven tracks spanning 50 minutes.
