Mount Salem (us) + Doublestone + Demon Head
October 30, 2014 kl. 20:00| 60DK
Hailing from Chicago, IL, Mount Salem is a four piece psychedelic rock / doom metal band. They started writing music together in the Summer of 2012 and released their first album, Endless, in the Spring of 2013. 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.”
Mount Salem has toured the Midwest, South, and East coasts. Sharing the stage with bands such as Windhand, Weedeater, Pentagram, Trouble, Bongripper, LO-Pan, Mike Scheidt(YOB), Mothership, and Howl, Mount Salem has fit on a wide variety of heavy shows and bring a live act to counter their music. “This is music that creates images, demands attention, and engages all senses.” Mister Growl.
Metal Blade Records signed the band in 2013 and an extended version of “Endless” will be released on March 4th 2014 which will be followed by a West coast tour.
“Mount Salem’s droning, driving doom will cast its spell on you” 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
