In 2009 and early 2010, "Science" co-wrote most of Evanescence's third album, Evanescence, with Amy Lee in New York and Texas, and he co-produced the album with Steve Lillywhite.[2] Amy talked about "Science":

Vin1.jpg The sounds and influence he brings to the table — programming outer-space awesome sounds you can't even recognize. I went through a phase where I didn't know if it was solo time, or go write score music, or what. And then once we wrote together, I realized this is totally Evanescence.[2] Vin2.jpg


She said that they were going to do a "two-drummer thing. Basically Thing 1 and Thing 2 — we're gonna have figure out some kind of plan for just knowing who's who."[2] She also said in an interview with Spin that "the songwriting and sound is inspired by a lot of our mutual loves -- Bjork, Nine Inch Nails, and music with a lot of programming and sounds that feel larger than life."[4] In the same interview, when asked how did Amy get a second guy in the band called Will Hunt, she said this:

Vin1.jpg Well, part of getting back to Evanescence was the new Will Hunt. I met this Will -- I call him Will "Science" Hunt because he does a lot of programming and beats -- when we recorded "Sally's Song" for Nightmare Revisited.[4] Vin2.jpg


Songs released with the self-titled album that he co-wrote with the band are "Made of Stone", "Sick", "End of the Dream", "Swimming Home" and "Secret Door". Amy said in a radio interview on August 2011 that "Science" ultimately did not join the band:

Vin1.jpg Interviewer: Do you have two guys in the band, same name?

Amy: No. Nope, that didn't happen.
Interviewer: Did you used to, didn't you have, like, Will Hunt and...?
Amy: Right, right. There was a minute, I worked and wrote with this other guy named, who is also named Will Hunt, not my drummer. So that got a little confusing. He's awesome. But, um, he's not in the band.
Interviewer: I didn't know if you had a thing, where, like, you only worked with people named Will Hunt or something...
Amy: *laughs* Yeah, that was really confusing for a minute. Yes, I know.[5]
