SALEM, who made their initial blip on my radar a few months ago when I heard their heavy, ambient, chopped & screwed retooling of Gucci Mane's forgotten classic "Bird Flu", are set to release their new album King Night in a few months. The opening song, also called "King Night", is epic.

And not just epic, but apocalyptic. The distorted bass, the choral "aah"-ing, the squealing synths all combine into a witchy Judgment day of a song. SALEM have really been killing it with these hellbangers and their debut is shaping up to be a relatively dark, massive take on the current obsession with ambiance and combining hip-hop beats with shoegazing sensibilities. Look for King Night when it drops 9/28 on IAMSOUND. - ben krusling
