SALEMS LOTT – Noisey Asks, “What the F*** is Your Deal?”

Who is SALEMS LOTT? Noisey Asks, “What the F*** is Your Deal?”

 SoCal shock-rock group SALEMS LOTT have been making a name for themselves on the Sunset Strip since their inception in 2013, having sold out venues such as House of Blues, The Whisky A Go Go, The Roxy and Viper Room countless times. Performing a heavy speed metal sound mixed with shocking theatrics and an even more surprising look, the band have amassed fans from here to Japan with their antics and sound.

SALEMS LOTT recently caught the attention of the editors at Noisey, who completed an interview with the band regarding the above topics and why, after metal fans have been critical of shock rock imagery of late, they continue on their path of theatrical glory. SALEMS LOTT is a living testament to the idea that bands can still rock outrageous imagery and still pack houses!

“A great debut from a new band that has the potential to make some serious waves.” 8.7/10 –

“They have the quite the visual appearance to be sure, but make no mistake this EP is no joke and their “shock metal” is an entertaining 25-minute roller coaster ride of riffs, snarling vocals, and running solos.” 8.5/10 –

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
