Mount Salem Signs With Metal Blade

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of the Chicago, IL four-piece psychedelic rock/doom metal band Mount Salem.

The band features the talents of Emily Kopplin [vocals & organ], Cody Davidson [drums], Mark Hewett [bass], and Kyle Morrison [guitars]. Metal Blade is preparing to release the band's sold out EP "Endless" in the spring of 2014, which will include two brand-new tracks turning the release into a full-length.

Kelli Malella from Metal Blade Records comments: "As soon as Will Palmer from our UK office brought Mount Salem to our attention I knew we had to have the band as a part of our family. Their sound is haunting, melodic yet heavy, and makes the listener nod their head as they take in all the grooves the band lays out in their vintage style of rock and doom metal. I'm really looking forward to getting the full-length version of Endless out to the masses as the new tracks I heard were catchy as hell and flow perfectly with the rest of the album."

Mount Salem's Mark Hewett adds: "Coming up listening to Metal Blade bands that have influenced mine and countless others' musical taste, it never crossed my mind that I might be a part of such an influence. We are very excited to meet new people, play with some new bands, see new places, and have a good time! We are honored to be a part of Metal Blade, a label that has such a great timeline of music history. We are looking forward to contributing to that history as well. See you out there!" More...
