"Do not only practice your art, force your way into its secrets. For it and knowledge can raise men to the Divine."
- Ludwig von Beethoven

Salem's Childe is a metal band based in north-central Indiana.

With influences that include Machine Head, Tool, Death Angel, Lamb of God, and more, Salem's Childe offers a hard-hitting and violently energetic mix of melody and aggression. And while those influences are resonant in the band's sound, Salem's Childe has been described as having a genre-defying sound that stands on its own while being able to keep the company of bands like Trivium, Killswitch Engage, In Flames, and others. Salem's Childe is a perfect storm of thrash, groove, prog, and modern hard rock that finds itself as equally at home in the mainstream as it does the underground.

Salem's Childe is:

  • rob salem - guitar
  • james gates - bass
  • scott earley - drums
