For immediate release!
SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS is proud as all hell to announce the signing of Boston riff lords CORTEZ! This veteran group of heavy rock fuzzdealers have really outdone themselves with their latest offering... "The Depths Below". Truth be told, this album is going to knock you on your ass! All killer, zero filler. Track after track of sonic bliss.
Having built up a loyal fan base both stateside and abroad over their decade plus of existence, CORTEZ have really honed their craft and brought their rawk game to a whole new level. Crushing tones, killer hooks and creative dynamics are skillfully woven throughout this blistering nine song release... "The Depths Below" is guaranteed to sink it's teeth into you on the first listen.
"The Depths Below" was recorded and mixed by studio guru Benny Grotto (Scissorfight, Aerosmith, Only Living Witness) at Q Division, Mad Oak Studios and Moontower Recording Studio. You'll want to blast it from the largest of speakers as well as listen to it repeatedly on headphones. There is so much packed into these mountain-sized grooves!
So, with that, we welcome CORTEZ to the SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS family - with open arms and riff pummeled eardrums!

SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS proudly announces the signing of...BUZZARD CANYON!!!
The sixty cycle hum of a tube powered stack bellowing through the silence. The deafening roar of a 454 throwing power at some winding dirt road up riff mountain. This is full fledged Camaro rock.
BUZZARD CANYON have been amassing a loyal following, delivering massive riffs and gigging tirelessly - performing on notable stoner and doom fests throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic and direct support slots for national acts. With the impending release of "Hellfire & Whiskey" this September, 2016, Buzzard Canyon will be expanding their reach and broadening their audience via an onslaught of road work; bringing the loud to the stage. Be prepared. They are coming for you.
Recorded in the back woods of Connecticut at Room SevenZeroEight, Buzzard Canyon's "Hellfire and Whiskey" holds heavy grooves, whiskey fueled lyrics, dual vocals and rippin' Thin Lizzy-esque twin guitar harmonies. It winds through twisting dirt roads, oceanic battles and dark internal struggle. An instant classic that will connect old and new fans.
Coming September 2016 on Vinyl, CD and digital formats.

From the majestic peak of Mt. Washington, it is with great pleasure we announce this stupendous news!!! We have signed New Hampshire maniac riff hurlers SCISSORFIGHT!!! That's right! The almighty SCISSORFIGHT have re-emerged from a secret location in the northern notches of the White mountains, with Doug Aubin on vocals and Rick Orcutt on drums, alongside founding members Paul Jarvis and Jay Fortin. New blood, new tales and an unquenchable thirst for riffs and volume, they are better then ever! SCISSORFIGHT have covered many miles over the years, and it is obvious that they are running with a full tank of race fuel feeding their fully blown and antlered F250 monster truck... These new songs are UNSTOPPABLE... We have booked Mad Oak Studios to help capture the band in all its sonic mountain glory. Hopefully the walls can withstand the blunt force riffage. Music this good has an urgency and a fire that has to be heard to be believed. So get fucking ready for the new SCISSORFIGHT release.... "CHAOS COUNTY"
Its goddamn true... the 'fight is on!
