With roots planted in early 80s metal, Against Their Will has their own unique sound that is being recognized by North Carolina's major music scenes. ATW isn't just another garage band, it's a brotherhood. It takes more than just an ability to play a musical instrument or to sing to make a band, it takes a rare power to connect and really become a band. ATW has that rare capacity. This outstanding musical combination is formed by four soul members, Zaak Riot who sings his heart out at every performance. Zaak is 21 years old and originally from Florida where he attended school to become a mortician. However, during the summer of 2008 Zaak moved to Wilson, North Carolina to focus all of his attention on Against Their Will. Zaak is a trained opera singer and uses that skill to his advantage to reach powerful heights in his vocals for ATW.

LoganX is the lead guitarist and creator of the intense break downs and breathtaking rifts of Against Their Will. He has been playing guitar since the age of 13 and taught himself everything he knows. During his final years in high school he has been extremely involved in JROTC and volunteers on a monthly basis.

Mr. Bill is 20 years old and is the brother of LoganX. They too are originally from Florida. Mr. Bill is the king of the drums and like his brother, is self taught. Mr. Bill is a black belt in Kenpo and has a private studio and a public studio in Wilson where he teaches men, women, and children the art of Kenpo and self defense.

Jake Tripp is the fourth and final member of ATW. Jake Tripp is 17 years old and has been playing the bass for over three years and is influenced by bands such as Korn, Disturbed, and Metallica. Jake Tripp is a North Carolina native and has a soul driven passion for music. Although Jake Tripp is the newest member of Against Their Will, he is a vital part of the brotherhood that is ATW.

ATW won the Redphish Battle of the Bands in 2009 and also won the 2009 "People's Choice" award for Carolina's Pure Rock 105.5 Battle of the Bands. ATW has played with bands such as Powerman 5000, Papercut Massacre, Psychostick, Ekotren, Blameshift, and many others!

These four men feed off of each other.
and when they are together,
it's pure magic.
