|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.|
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." She also said in an interview with Spin.com 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." In the same interview, when asked how did Amy get a second guy in the band called Will Hunt, she said this:
|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.|
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:
|Interviewer: Do you have two guys in the band, same name?
Amy: No. Nope, that didn't happen.
"Science" produced and helped Amy Lee compose the cover songs "Sally's Song" for the album Nightmare Revisited and "Halfway Down the Stairs" for the album Muppets: The Green Album. He is credited for the drums in Sally's Song, producing Halfway Down the Stairs and the programming in both songs.
David Hodges released an EP titled The Rising on 2008. "Science", along with David, produced the EP and he is also credited for the drums and programming.
