Forgotten Dreams – CD and vinyl

We have been delighted that our CD released in December by Pure Rock Records has been really well received – the reviews have been great.  Thanks to everyone also who has sent us the many, many messages – it’s so good to hear from you and we’re so pleased that you like the music.

The limited edition vinyl LP was released in February – almost sold out!!

Photos and Videos

We had a blast at Very ‘Eavy Festival at Stadskanaal in Netherlands recently.

It was great to meet up with so many friends – and we are really pleased to get such an awesome reception!

The pics here are a few photos taken at the Festival – many thanks for sharing them with us.  Here are also some videos posted on YouTube – thanks again for recording and posting them!

Yes!!  We already have some really strong songs recorded for the next album.  We’ve got loads of good stuff – and have been recording more this weekend!

We hope you’ll like it as much as Forgotten Dreams.

“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
