Will Z. explores several genres, mainly psychedelic folk, incorporating Indian music and experimental elements. He is also known for his work with Book of AM ‘cult’ project and the band Cosmic Trip Machine.

This album is a collection of dark electric numbers, originally intended for the final part of his previous album, 12 Visions, and songs composed from 1997 to 1999, when Will Z. was a teenager. When he rediscovered some tapes with the demo songs, 15 years later, he decided to work on these tracks and to go to studio with them. 


The Dark Tales recordings began in July 2013 and, after a long serie of sessions, the album was completed in April 2014. Almost 50 songs were recorded in the end by Will Z., with the help from Sammy Goldstein on drums, oG on glissando guitar and Alice Artaud.

Will Z. is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Belgium who explores several genres, mainly psychedelic rock and acid folk, incorporating Indian music and experimental elements. He is also known for his work with The Book Of AM 'cult' project and the band Cosmic Trip Machine


In 2012, Will Z. was totally immersed in The Book Of AM production and recordings. He discovered it was the kind of music he wanted to play, but felt it would be a solo adventure. He released a totally improvised meditation opus called Shambhala album in almost 10 days, then, the following year, a "negative" version of his first solo album. The result, 12 Visions (inspired by the island of Mallorca, the alchemy book, Twelve Philosophical Keys, and J-K Huysmans novel, Là-Bas) gained an instant cult status. During 2013 and 2014, he worked on The Book Of Intxixu, sequel of The Book Of AM with Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth from Gong, and Dark Tales Of Will Z., a collection of dark electric numbers. 

His fourth album, New Start, out in June 2, 2015, was inspired by Jain philosophy, the celebration of the birth of his son, an homage to these great artists with whom he’d collaborated. In 2015, Will Z. went on a tour, mainly in Belgium and Germany, performing concerts based on 12 Visions, Dark Tales and New Start songs. He recorded a Live album called The Saint, The Martyr And The Monk to celebrate this epic and final tour. A New Mirrored You, his fifth album, is based on Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky and A New Life by Dante Alighieri. 

Limited to 100 copies on black vinyl. Will Z is one of the heads of Cosmic Trip Machine, one-man band and producer of the 'Book Of Am' cult project, inspired by a mixture of dark occult rock and positive acid-folk. This third project of Will Z. is a collection of dark electric tracks, originally composed for the final part of '12 Visions'. Expect positive folk songs based on prehistoric legends of Menorca island and compositions dating from Will Z.'s teenage musical years. The result of all these sessions was two albums. 'Jellyfish Island', an unreleased collection that mainly features folk and was produced by oG, and the psychedelic rock orientated album 'Dark Tales Of Will Z.'.

Played, produced and composed by Will Z., featuring Cosmic Trip Machine and Alice Artaud. Recorded and mixed by Jean-Pol Gerard at NoHype Studio during 2013 & 2014. Mastered by Open Your Eyes.
