I have a soft spot for old school doom and female fronted rock, bought this on a whim not knowing it had a female singer. The sound is very primal (Sabbath riffs) and the vocals are great. If you like The Devils' Blood , Jess & The Ancients or Blood Ceremony then you will definitely love this. Highly recommmended

The music is good, the quality of the sound is not so good. If you like female-fronted doom metal bands, you won't be disappointed.

Breaking the mold. 22 Mar. 2014
By D. L. Thompson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Do you remember the birth of Heavy Metal? Try to remember when "heavy" meant something that would "blow your mind" and "metal" was music that was just beyond the Hard Rock genre, into a dark uncharted territory like a dream that threatened to turn into a nightmare at any moment and sometimes did? There was a time when heavy metal scared parents so bad they warned their kids not to listen to it. Mount Salem aren't what most people think of as metal today. You wont find any rap here, nor death growls, nor juvenile self-obsessed screaming, nothing obnoxiously ridiculous or laughable. There was a time when hearing a heavy metal song could not only shake you to your core sonically, but also scare the b'jeebees out of you like a great horror film. Mount Salem obviously remember this near-forgotten mystical formula: One part Dr. Jekyll, two parts Mr. Hyde, both hauntingly beautiful and horrifically spine chilling... Equal parts evil and genius. What Mount Salem offer is a much welcome return to the way heavy metal once was and what it should be. Period. If you listen to Endless and don't think it's "heavy metal" you've either forgotten what heavy metal is supposed to be, or you're too young to know any better. Either way, I highly recommend this album as the proper dose of the right medication for your ailment. Mount Salem! Aptly named, for they are sure to cast a long shadow.

Bit of a mixed bag 7 Jun. 2014
By Anthony - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Within the past few years, there has been a rise in popularity in music that plays an old school, 70's style of stoner and doom metal, with bands like Orchid, Blood Ceremony and Ghost coming to mind as some of the more well known names at the moment although there are plenty more. And the latest addition to this long list of retro metal bands are fellow Chicago natives Mount Salem. The simply named "Endless" is the debut effort for these guys to put out their own branch of Occultist doom metal to the table and, despite being an EP has the time length to be considered a full length album, and with it's release has already gained a bit of a following and is beginning to make themselves more well known amongst the metal and rock community. And when listening, there is a definite presence to the sound that does warrant some attention.

There are some very thick, very heavy, very sludgy riffs that have a, in a word, groovy vibe to them, making each song this huge wall of sound that, while are heavy, are also both melodic and catchy. Its very familiar ground for Black Sabbath listeners and will undoubtedly appeal to anyone who is into more psychedelic and stoner based music, but another aspect about the sound the sticks out are the vocals which are fantastic. Preformed by Emily Kopplin, she hits some great range with her high, somewhat mournful voice that sounds genuine and passionate and emotive, sounding really beautiful and she shines as the stand out performer of the music. Also adding to it is the organ (also preformed by Kopplin) having a very psychedelic, kinda trippy sound to them and its put into the mix perfectly. This adds a lot of depth to the music, because when they come in, they have a strong presence to them, giving the music an almost eerie, ominous atmosphere. So on a musical level, the EP is very heavy, thick, catchy, easy to follow, easy to understand, as well as eerie and dark sounding, making it instantly enjoyable.

Now that's all well and good, but some things become obvious as one goes through the songs, and that is its lack of variety, lack of ideas and overall lack of identity when comparing it to the many other bands of this genre, and this is where the EP begins to fall apart for me. You see this EP does a lot of good things, but it also lacks a lot that makes a band stand out and lacks certain things that make more than just a superficial form of entertainment. Many of the songs feel the same and follow a very similar structure, they also don't do anything terribly inventive or unique and instead follow a very safe and very typical sound that's very standard in this genre. The result of this is that the band lacks an identity and doesn't stick out and puts them in an original frame that separates them from the rest of the pack, as opposed to other recent bands who play this and do things to separate themselves. For example, two bands I mentioned at the start of this review, Orchid and Blood Ceremony, both play this retro classic metal style, but, with Orchid, there music has a lot of creative riffs and song structures that make it, on a technical level more interesting to listen to, and Blood Ceremony, who while playing a more safe, by the book style, add things like acoustics and flute and some other folk elements to keep the music varied and keep it interesting. Mount Salem on the other hand, plays things very, very traditional and by the book, without ever doing anything at all inventive or creative and never makes any attempt to vary the sound whatsoever. The problem with this is that, once the novelty of the positives I listed earlier wears off, the EP doesn't have much to go back to and I found myself getting a little bored about halfway through it.

"Endless" is a fairly solid first effort, putting out some very entertaining and likable material, but at the same time is also very uniform and a bit too much to the point, making it hard to stay interested after the first few listens and also keeps it lacking in character and identity needed to keep it out of the pack. I do want to see this band's future and see what they do with it as, even though this EP does suffer in the end, these guys show a lot of potential.

Great Album 23 Mar. 2014
By Chris Leland - Published on

Mount Salem has an amazing sound! Very much an old school heavy metal sound, think Sabbath, but mixed with abit of doom metal. It's an amazing album and if you're a heavy metal fan you're sure to enjoy it.

Great modern version of black Sabbath slow and powerful. With a great female vocalist. I would if you like slow heavy metal this is for you.
what better than Black Sabbath 22 Feb. 2015
By LongShadow - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First of all, if a band wishes to emulate the sound of another, what better than Black Sabbath? This disc truly reminds me of the Master of Reality era of Sabbath, yet guided by a somewhat different direction and the obvious female lead vocals. Dark and sinister from start to finish. The opening track, "Good Times" hits it with the organ in the background followed by some eerie lyrics. Another favorite of mine, (They're all good), is Hysteria. Just buy the damn thing and you'll see. Looking forward to their sophomore effort..
