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."

Nachdem die Musiker von MOUNT SALEM im Sommer 2012 begonnen hatten, erste Stücke zu komponieren, veröffentlichten sie im darauffolgenden Frühling "Endless". Die Band legt viel Wert auf den richtigen Sound und das entsprechende Feeling, sowohl im Studio als auch live, weshalb die Mitglieder gleich zu Beginn eigens neue Instrumente anschafften, und das Ergebnis klingt nun viel natürlicher, als sie es sich je erträumt hätten.

Beeinflusst von Black Sabbath und Pentagram spielen sie lauten, harten Rock n' Roll mit Vintage-Equipment, verleihen der Musik aber einen eigenen finsteren, geheimnisvollen Dreh, um den Hörer in ihre düstere Welt zu ziehen. Die Bildersprache ihrer Texte beschert nimmt mit auf eine Reise, in deren Zug man nicht weiß, ob man sich fürchten oder zu einem Schwert greifen soll, um sich mit ins Schlachtgetümmel zu schlagen. "Endless klingt wie das alptraumhafte Hirngespinst eines Weissagers auf einem üblen Drogentrip." - Mister Growl von MisterGrowl.com

Endless ist im Februar über Metal Blade Records wiederveröffentlicht worden und enthält zwei ganz neue Tracks, die nicht auf der Original-EP enthalten waren, welche die Band 2012 in Eigenregie veröffentlichte. Fans können die Scheibe auf Vinyl, CD oder digital bestellen und sich die erste Single 'Lucid' HERE anhören.

"Das Debüt Endless ist ein absolut monolithisches Album, das die bleischwer dröhnenden Riffs des jungen Tony Iommi mit Emilys glockenklarer Stimme und epischen Orgel-Parts im Stil von Jon Lord verbindet. Sicher, das ist Retro, klingt aber viel zu aufregend, um es als schnöden Revisionismus abzutun." Metal Hammer UK

"Inspiriert von den Riffs von Black Sabbath und dem Schmiss von Pentagram weben Chicagos Mount Salem einen blendenden, Groove-orientierten Psych-Teppich, der den Fuzz und Donner des Seventies-Metal mit dem Melodiegefühl zeitgenössischer Bands verbindet." Outburn Magazine

"Es ist eine Freude, dieses Ding von Anfang bis Ende zu hören … Klassischer Doom mit einer beeindruckenden Frauenstimme, ein Anwärter für zukünftige Weltklasse" PlanetMosh.com

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. 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 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
