A lot of people are talking about SALEM being the future of music, which is an unfortunate turn of phrase.

It’s not that they don’t deserve such praise, it’s more that songs like “ASIA” sound a lot like the world collapsing in on itself in a huge celestial implosion, probably while Bruce Willis swings with futile gesture from the falling stars.

If SALEM are the sound of the future, then we’re all horribly fucked. The rest is noise.
