San Francisco-born musician Will Carroll is a left-handed matched-grip player. He has been drumming since he was ten, and has seen active service as a player since the late 1980s, drumming with Scarecrow, Old Grandad, and Vicious Rumors among others.
Will Carroll also served as touring drummer with Machinehead before they recruited Dave McClain. Will joined the band on their first US headline tour behind 'Burn My Eyes'.
Will Carroll joined Death Angel in 2009, replacing the band's original drummer Andy Galeon.
When Will was young and just starting out, he liked all the classic drummers like John Bonham and Keith Moon, but "the drummer who really kicked my ass was Mickey Dee, drummer for King Diamond at the time." A bit further down the road Will discovered Stewart Copeland of The Police, as well as Dennis Davis of David Bowie’s late ’70s bands. More recently Will Carroll has become an admirer of Suffocation sticksman Mike Smith.
