“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]

“… taking a break from headlining metal festivals across Europe will be SALEM from Hull, playing heavy rock based on thundering rhythms, soaring twin-guitars and powerful melodies [BROFEST#1]”

“… loads more tunes … dusted off to reveal remarkable quality [BROFEST review]”  Damien, Iron Fist magazine

“With “When Love’s In Your Heart” setting the stage in true heavy metal fashion, followed by the ever so cool title cut, the band tears through 4 tracks of sensational hard rock/heavy metal. Lead singer Simon Saxby sounds better then ever. Truly, a track like “Ask The Lonely”, showcases his youthful voice and shows that Salem still has what it takes to be a leading force in the field of British metal. The EP concludes with a re-recording of a song from 1982, “Reach To Eternity”, and, if anything is wrong at all with this limited edition EP, you find yourself craving more! Paul Macnamara and Mark Allison offer up killer lead guitar solos to compliment Simon’s youthful energy as Ade Jenkinson (bass) and Paul Mendham (drums) keep things solid in true rock steady fashion. Throughout this EP the band pulls out all the stops to give the listener four tracks of epic heavy metal that is both melodic and menacing. [X Rated EP]”  Andy Davis, Heavy Metal Time Machine

“Fresh from a round of Euro-Metal bashes over the last year or so, SALEM sent Bro-Fest#1 into spasms of delight with their set of tight, slightly ‘prog influenced’ trad-metal. I was moved to recall the first Saxon album, as frontman Simon Saxby led his troops through a super slick set and from the rampant riff-erama of their classic ‘Cold As Steel’ right through to an airing of the brand new – ‘When Love Is In Your Heart’, Salem scored with the festival’s afternoon audience big time, no messin’! ”  Mark Gregory,
