William Martin "Will" Hunt is a drummer who plays in the rock and metal genres. He is currently in the bands Dark New Day, Evanescence and Black Label Society. Hunt was in Skrape until 2004. Both Dark New Day and Skrape were signed to major record labels. It was a great honor, and testimony of Hunt's talent, to be chosen to play with Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe fame when Tommy Lee did a solo tour. Will was featured on drums in the Lee video release that remained in the top 20 countdown for several weeks during that same year. In 2008, Hunt filled in for Tommy Lee with the Crue tour when Lee suffered from tendonitis. Hunt has also played live with Slaughter, Vince Neil, and many more. During 2007, Hunt recorded with bloodsimple and Static-X. In May 2007, Hunt was named as a replacement for the departed Rocky Gray of Evanescence, and remained with the group through their The Open Door album tour, which ended in December 2007. He remained active with Dark New Day while playing with Evanescence.[1] Will performed with Evanescence in their 2009 one-off show at the Maquinaria Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Hunt will be joining Tommy Lee's rap metal side-project Methods of Mayhem as the drummer for their upcoming 2010 Public Mayhem album and tour. It is unknown if he will be only a live touring drummer, or also record drums for the album, as Tommy Lee is still set to do the drums on record.

Hunt has been named drummer for Black Label Society.
