Salem announce tracklisting and artwork


Salem Legendary Israeli extreme metallers SALEM have revealed the album artwork and final track listing of their upcoming full-length, Playing God And Other Short Stories. The band's seventh studio album was recorded at Harold Studios in Israel and mastered by UE Nastasi at the prestigious Sterling Sound in NYC. Commented drummer Nir Nakav of the cover concept: "The cover is based around Adinkra, a West African symbol system. The symbol we used is called Gye Nyame and it means 'Except for God.' This unique and beautiful symbol is ubiquitous in Ghana. It is by far the most popular for use in decoration and also a reflection on the deeply religious character of the Ghanaian people."
