In the Beginning...

~ Release group by Salem


This is a remastered anthology of the Hull-based band. Consisting of (nearly or virtually) everything the band ever put on vinyl or tape, “In The Beginning…” clocks to 85 minutes of mostly melodic, mystical, epic, Rock-influenced British traditional Metal fans of this colossal genre will surely enjoy; it’s no wonder premier labels like Pure Steel Records, High Roller Records or Shadow Kingdom Records carry the torch of unveiling elusive but not forgotten Metal diamonds from the past and SALEM’s anthology is no exception.
With three demos and one single release in their petite period of existence (1980 - 1983), SALEM was added to the pile of remarkable bands not making it to bigger markets, hence there’s quite a limited number of Metal fans (the older ones, of course) memorizing their contribution to the British Metal scene. I really hope this collection of songs will find enough admirers and SALEM’s name make some more faces beam to sanction.
