Track Premiere: Mount Salem – Hysteria

Metal Blade Records has teamed up with Roadburn to debut the brand new single ‘Hysteria’ in preparation for the upcoming full-length release, Endless, by Chicago, IL based psychedelic Doom Rock outfit Mount Salem.

Check out the new track here:


Moun 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” — Mister Growl of

Endless will be released on March 3rd, 2014 via Metal Blade Records 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 pre-order the album on CD, vinyl, or digitally HERE.
