With influences that include Machine Head, Tool, Savatage, Lamb of God, and more, Indiana metal outfit Salem's Childe offers a hard-hitting and violently energetic mix of melody and aggression.
And while those influences are resonant in the band's sound, Salem's Childe has been described as having a genre-defying sound that stands on its own while being able to keep the company of bands like As I Lay Dying, In Flames, Godsmack, and others. Salem's Childe is a perfect storm of thrash, groove, prog, and modern hard rock that finds itself as equally at home in the mainstream as it does the underground.
Released on October 9, 2020 via Pavement Entertainment, the debut full-length album "The Sin That Saves You" is described as a “not-a-concept album concept album; with strong musical and lyrical themes that tie the songs together in a way similar to movements in a symphony, the record is an exploration of the human condition and the various struggles that everyone faces. The band recently released the video for the record’s first single and title track, ”The Sin That Saves You”. The video applies the lyrics of the song to the current veteran suicide crisis, and has received a strong response from veteran and civilian alike.
