'Mescaline II' is the follow up to the instrumental track 'Mescaline' which also features on the 'Endless' album. "We always wanted to expand on the idea of that song", the band said, "but liked the way it was so writing another song to compliment it made sense when the EP expanded into a full-length album."
Mount Salem started writing music together in the summer of 2012 and put a strong emphasis on tone and feeling in both their songs and live performances alike. Most of the band switched from their normal instruments and picked up new ones for this band and the result was much more natural than they had hoped for.
Taking influence from the classics acts like Black Sabbath and Pentagram, they play loud, heavy rock and roll adding in their own twist of dark and mysterious doom into the music as they invite the listener to step into their sinister realm.
The imagery in the lyrics will take you on a ride in which you won't know whether to be scared or grab a sword and join the battle!
