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.

Taking 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.

“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 Magazine

“a joy to listen to from start to finish…Classic Doom, with a stunning female vocal. A class act in the making.” PlanetMosh.com
