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 EP, 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.
Mount Salem has toured the US Midwest, South, and East coasts. Sharing the stage with bands such as Windhand, Weedeater and Bongripper Mount Salem has fit on a wide variety of heavy shows and brings a live act to counter their music. “This is music that creates images, demands attention, and engages all senses.”
Metal Blade Records signed the band in the summer of 2013 and will release an extended version of Endless containing two additional, brand-new tracks in the spring of 2014, which will be followed by a West Coast tour. Mount Salem is currently touring and writing for a follow up full-length.
