Comments MOUNT SALEM:
"We are very excited to be coming overseas for our first time. Traveling is a
hobby for all of us so we're thrilled to be able to see new countries, meet new
people, and of course, play some music."
MOUNT SALEM started
writing music together in the summer of 2012 and released their first EP,
"Endless", in the spring of 2013. The band puts a strong emphasis
on tone and feeling in both their songs and live performances alike. Most of the
band switched from their normal instruments and picked up new ones for this band
and the result was much more natural than they had hoped for.
influence from the classics like Black Sabbath and Pentagram, they play loud,
heavy rock and roll using all vintage gear. Throwing their own twist of dark and
mysterious doom into the music, they invite the listener to step into their
sinister realm. The imagery in the lyrics will take you on a ride in which you
won't know whether to be scared or grab a sword and join the battle. "Endless
feels like it's trapped in the nightmarish head-space of a psychic medium on a
bad trip" - MisterGrowl.com.
"Endless" has been
re-issued by Metal Blade Records last February and includes two brand-new tracks
not featured on the original EP that was self-released by the band in 2012. Fans
can stream the first single, 'Lucid', as well as ordering the album on
CD, vinyl, or digitally HERE.
"Debut album Endless is an absolute monolith
of a record that combines the sludgy, droning guitars of Iommi's finest vintage
with Emily's shimmering vocals and epic Jon Lord-style organ rushes. It's retro,
yes, but it also sounds too exciting to be dismissed as simply revisionism."
Metal Hammer UK
"Drawing from the riffage of Black Sabbath and
the swagger of Pentagram, Chicago's Mount Salem has created a blinding, groove
oriented psychedelic tapestry that infuses the fuzz and growl of 70s metal with
the melodic attack of a contemporary act." Outburn
"a joy to listen to from start to finish…Classic Doom,
with a stunning female vocal. A class act in the making."
MOUNT SALEM has released a video for the
track "Lucid" taken off their latest album "Endless". Make
