We are currently talking to a record company – who is really pleased with this music. Our aim is to have the new album ready later in the year! Hope you love it!!
Fairview Studios, Hull
The compilation album is due for release on 15 November – an album to cover notable local bands who recorded at Fairview between 1973 and 1990.
You probably remember that we made our first two recordings at the Fairview Studios in Willerby, Hull – the first demo in 1981 and the Reach To Eternity/Cold As Steel single in ’82.
Many excellent artists recorded at Fairview Studios, not least Hull’s own legendary guitarist Mick Ronson and recently departed Trevor Bolder, and other rock and metal bands such as:
Local music historian, Andy Richardson, has already worked with the owner Keith Herd to release a collection of music recorded by local artists from the 1960s and early ’70s called Frontroom Masters.
We are delighted that Andy approached us to include some our music on this compilation.
You can read more about Fairview on www.fairviewrecording.co.uk – and on Wikipediawhere the Salem single is cited as a “notable recording”!
The release event/party will be at The Fruit, Hull – where are headlining – on November 15, 2013.
Thanks again to you for all your continued support!
Keep rockin! and we’ll see you soon …

“Note newcomer meeting: Salem offer what you get rarely heard in today’s world of rock. “Reach for Eternity” has heard the influence of the seventies, which were heavily crowned by bands like Sweet, but even influences of Rainbow and Deep Purple can not really deny. The sound has something refreshing, something that makes the weary bones back on their feet. “Fighting for the Cause” to fully concurs with the style. The guitar riffs, the bass, everything is harmonious. Here we get a new version of a bygone era in a new guise. In our eyes, a (secret) tip for all old rockers and those who want to be there and of course for all fans of neat rock. [Google translation]” Newcomer-Treff [Germany]
