Genre: Desert Rock
Witchrider is a rock group formed in Graz/AUT in 2012 by Michael Hirschmugl, H.P. Leitner and Daniel Dorninger. Before finally settling with the name "Witchrider" they called themselves "Desert Mountain" (after "Desert Sessions" in California). However, they decided that "Witchrider" was a better fit to their musical style. The idea for the bandname was taken from sleep paralysis, which is also known as "riding the witch“.
