“Battle Metal” Band in the Hunt for The Group’s First-Ever Grammy Nom Nod on Domo Music Group
Houston, Texas (October 20, 2016) – Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom is currently rounding up supporters for the group’s single “Midnight Mayhem,” which is in contention for a coveted Grammy Award nomination.
“Midnight Mayhem,” released by Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom on June 10, 2016, delivers an innovative, melodic and powerful blend of classical, world and metal music. The track was produced and engineered by Ulrich Wild at The Wilderness. Wild, who recorded the Deftones’ Grammy winner, “Elite,” as well as other tracks by perennial Grammy favorites Jane’s Addiction and Pantera, believes Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom is in a class all by itself.
“In Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom, you have a once in a generation situation where a debut artist comes out ready from day one and fearlessly conquers new ground,” says Wild. “As a producer there are few situations as rewarding and exciting as being able to deliver something new to the public. ‘Midnight Mayhem’ is the ultimate marriage of classical and metal and world styles. There is no real precedent for Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom; they are truly one of a kind and a joy to work with. I am very proud of the band and very proud of this track.” See more on producer Ulrich Wild at www.ulrichwild.com.
