Whilst it is unfortunate that Paul [Mendham] is not able to join us for this gig, we are delighted that we will have our excellent deputy drummer Oli Davis with us.

Oli is also from Salem’s hometown, Hull – an excellent drummer and artist. He’s done a magnificent job learning the full Salem set in a short time.  Our final (pre-Dubai) rehearsal at the weekend was great – and we’re all set to go ROCKING in The Music Rooms!   Heathrow – here we come!

“Forgotten Dreams … an all out classic rock release … superbly crafted guitarmanship … twelve tracks of pure rock bliss … timeless classics!”  Lee Walker, Firebrand Magazine

“Forgotten Dreams … has it all! The compositions of the British present themselves sophisticated and varied …Powerful guitars, double-barreled leads and groovy bass playing combine to create a meaningful , well-produced sound”  Anthalerero, Stormbringer

“All in all, these things combine for a rather significant success for a band of fifty-something heavy metal rockers. And these guys can truly deliver the goods whether it’s the heavy metal of Kazakafnu or Aftershock, the melodic hard rock of The Answer, or the anthems of This Heart Is Mine or The Best Is Yet to Come. Hopefully, that title of that last song is prophetic for the future of Salem. Forgotten Dreams is quite recommended.”  Craig Hartranft, Dangerdog
