State of Salazar was started in 2010 by five students from the Malmö Academy of Music who wanted to play rock music made for the big arenas.
When they released their debut EP ”Lost my Way” in the summer of 2012, it spread fast in magazines and blogs and created a tidal wave of praise.
In early 2013 State of Salazar signed with Frontiers Records and in 2014 the album “All The Way” was released and it received a great amount of fantastic reviews. Soon after the release of “All The Way” keyboard player Stefan Mårtenson chose to leave the band to pursue other things in life. Instead their long-time friend Kevin Hosford took his place as the band's new keyboard player. At this time the band had started working on their follow-up album “Superhero”.
With this new album the band has taken a turn towards a darker and grittier sound, developing their signature arrangement style with keyboard and guitars even further. The album shows the band at its best with these eleven great songs performed with extreme precision.
Considering that bands such as Toto, Queen, Journey, Survivor and especially Bill Conti and Vince DiCola have influenced them, State of Salazar have a lot to prove. But they handle all this pressure with their honor intact and their heads held high. Their songwriting, arranging and instrumental performance show that this is a band that wants to develop and contribute to the melodic rock genre.
State of Salazar is back.
