Mount Salem: Metal Blade Records
“Drawing from the riffage of Black Sabbath and the swagger of Pentagram, Chicago’s Mount Salem has created a blinding, groove oriented psychedelic tapestry that infuses the fuzz and growl of 70s metal with the melodic attack of a contemporary act.” Outburn Magazine

Castle: San Francisco heavy metal cultists CASTLE will release their album, “Under Siege,” on May 20 via Prosthetic Records in North America. Recorded at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, Calif. earlier this year with producer/mixer Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Eyehategod) — who also produced their 2012 Juno-nominated release “Blacklands” — “Under Siege” pushes CASTLE‘s unique sound further with the confluence of punishing riffs and melodic passages of haunted, full-blooded madness.

After their biggest single ever, “Black Snatch” and nonstop touring, the California trio are set to take over the world. The album is a statement on various levels.

It’s a statement that The Mentors won’t stop, Their 4 decade-long career after withstanding the tragic death of original vocalist Eldon “El Duce” Hoke” . Most importantly, it’s a statement that The Mentors music will be here forever.
