Firmly rooted in the red-eyed rituals of the heady ‘60s and dead ‘70s, and shabby, feverish catacomb 8mm smut by the likes of Jess Franco, Sweden’s Salem’s Pot are clearly on the rise, channeling ultra-fuzzed acid-blues into psychotropic lo-fi doom.
These guys aren’t just some bogus, bong-worshipping, basement dwellers. Salem’s Pot accentuate these creepy vibes by smashing B-movie debauchery and vintage hedonism into a lysergic stomp through spooky reverberations and underground grime.
Oozing infernal intent, crude fumes, and chock-full of sticky resin, Salem’s Pot‘s latest album, …Lurar ut dig på prärien (out on RidingEasy Records), shambles forth from the crypt, heavily immersed in ritual smoke and ash. The experience leads you into brain-wrecking doom territory, in an altered state replete with vision trails, lurid memories of Satanic rituals, trashy orgies, fierce bikers raging on brown acid, and a persistent ringing in the ears.
You know what to do when Salem’s Pot will hit the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Thursday, April 9 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
