Check first media feedback:
"Ominous atmospheres between Occult-Metal, Doom and gothic opulence that are solely dedicated to Karyn's voice." (Metal Hammer, D)

"... Madame Crisis is the only woman capable of preserving the heritage of Fear-Of-God front woman Dawn Crosby (R.I.P.). Songs like 'The Alchemist' or the manic 'Mother' are psychedelic monster grimaces, graceful and cruel at the same time and coming with a hypnotic knock-on effect." (Rock Hard, D)

"Above all 'Salem's Wounds' stands out from the bulk of current Occult-Rock and Metal releases with its extremely distinct songs." (Legacy, D)

"It's a work of tremendous depth and passion that will yield many rewards with repeated listening." (avenoctum.com)

"Salem's Wounds" was financed by fans via websites like Indiegogo/Etsy and was recorded at The Basement Recordings in North Carolina with producer Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, The Contortionist). The album cover was painted by Karyn herself, who (in addition to her vocal talents) is a respected painter and leatherworker. See below for the complete album track-listing.
