Beyond Salem is a blend of hard gothic rock & dark ambient soundscapes. A delight for atmospheric goths.
The Beyond Salem CD "Black Sabbatical" has garnered airplay on stations across the USA, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Chile and beyond.
The album has received positive reviews in many musical genres, ranging from gothic, metal, progressive, industrial and has even charted in the "New Age Voice" on several dark ambient/new age programs.
Open minded music fans who enjoy a cross of hard rock ala The Cult / Soundgarden / Danzig & Black Sabbath with darker synth soundscapes (complete with female vocals) that are similar to soundtracks such as Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Bram Strokers' Dracula & The Crow will love "Black Sabbatical".
Musicians featured on this album include guest performances from guitar virtuoso Matte Black (of Toronto's theatrical goth/metal act "Sex Without Souls"), John Campbell of JK Productions on vocals/bass/drum programs, the talented female vocals of Anne-Marie Korber and the bass/Korg Z1 dream like visions of Beyond Salem founder Michael Cannon.
The production on this album is first rate.
Light the candles, rent "the Exorcist" and hold your loved one tight!
