Named after a character from James Herbert’s book, The Rats, Willard were formed in Seattle, USA, in 1991, by Johnny Clint (vocals), Mark Spiders (guitar), Steve Wied (drums), Otis P. Otis (guitar) and Darren Peters (bass). They were picked up by Roadracer Records the same year. Subtitled The Sound Of Fuck!, their debut album, Steel Mill, released in July 1992, was a powerful and uncompromising debut, with influences ranging from traditional metal sources such as Black Sabbath to the more hardcore-derived output of Nirvana and Henry Rollins.
