To look at the L.A. based speed metal shock rock band Salems Lott, one would think they were the glam band that time forgot out of the 80’s, but most glam bands of that time were not heavy at all, mostly hard rock stuff. Salems Lott may look a little glammed up but they are pretty darn heavy and fast as hell. The band has just released a new video for the track “S. S. (Sonic Shock).” You can check out that video below and find out a little more about this unique band.
From The Press Release
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 – Ultimate-Guitar.com
“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 – Bravewords.com
