Witches of Doom are a goth-stoner-doom band born in Rome in January 2013, when Federico Venditti –guitars-, DaniloPiludu –vocals- Jacopo Cartelli-bass- Andrea Budicin-drums- got together and started their own musical project in order to play a personalized mix of 80’s goth, 70’s hard rock blended with a 90’s sensibility that harks back to Type o’Negative and Moonspell among others.
The Roman ensemble started to write their own material and in just a few months the bulk of the debut album was already panned out. Witches of Doom want to play in front of an audience and in Spring 2013 they embark on a series of live dates within the Roman circuit where they will establish their name as one of the hottest bands in the Roman underground music scene.
In May 2013 the band finished arranging the ten tracks that will end up on their debut CD, “Obey” and in November they entered the Hombre Lobo Studios with Fabio Recchia as producer and sound engineer . The ten tracks recorded in those sessions represent a huge step forward, with defined arrangements thanks to the keyboard work of Fabio and Graziano “Eric”Corrado. The first names that spring to mind to give you an idea are Black Sabbath, Cult, Paradise,Lost, Sisters of Mercy and Depeche Mode.
Graziano “Eric”Corrado is now a full on member of the group who signed with Sliptrick Rec. soon after the band played many venues in Italy and embarked in their first tour in the Baltic countries, receiving lots of appraisal and good feedback.
The band filmed a video for the crowd pleaser U2 song New Years Day, featuring Paul Bento –ex Type O Negative and Carnivore- on lead guitar and produced by Fredrik Folkaiare from Unleashed.
The band has finished recording their second album due on May via Sliptrick Records.
