Salome 'Terminal' Gatefold 12" 2XLP
Fronted by a vocalist with one of the most powerful voices in metal, renowned for their stunning live performances, Virginia's Salome first made waves in 2008 when they released their self-titled debut album to an unsuspecting public. The three-piece quickly earned a reputation as one of the heaviest American bands alongside the likes of Yob and Dark Castle, recognized for bearing the doom metal torch passed to them by legends Khanate and Burning Witch. Following an attention-grabbing appearance at SXSW this past March, the band has garnered praise everywhere from metal blogosphere to NPR and The New York Times, and anticipation has been building for the trio's sophomore full-length. When Salome announced the impending release of Terminal through Profound Lore Records, respected metal publications Decibel and Terrorizer called it one of the most anticipated albums of 2010. Surpassing all expectations, Terminal is the most powerful entry in the heavy music arena this year. An album so crushing, ritualistic and epic in scope, it is destined to be recognized as a classic and milestone in American doom metal.
