There are at least four bands called Salvation.
1. Salvation is a blackened crust/hardcore punk band from Pennsylvania, United States. They put out a 7" titled 'Smoke And Mirrors' on Youth Attack Records.
2. Salvation is one of the original Leeds based post-punk/goth bands. Formed in 1983, they released their first 12" on Merciful Release, the Sisters of Mercy's label. Salvation went on to become regular visitors to the Indie Top 20 alongside their contemporaries: The Mission, Skeletal Family and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry. Signing to Miles Copeland's IRS label, success beckoned but the band acrimoniously split the following year.
4. San Francisco psychedelic band Salvation was formed in 1967 by singer Al Linde and guitarist Joe Tate, who first met while students at the University of Washington. Bassist Artie McLean, keyboardist Art Resnick, and drummer Teddy Stewart later completed the original lineup, which at first called itself the New Salvation Army Banned. After earning featured spots in a series of concerts in Golden Gate Park, the band signed to ABC Records, albeit on the condition they abbreviate their name for fear of legal action from the actual Salvation Army. Salvation's self-titled debut LP followed in 1968, boasting an expansive, eclectic sound highlighted by the first single, "Think Twice." Opening slots for bands including the Doors, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and Canned Heat followed, and around the time of their second album, 1969's Gypsy Carnival Caravan, Salvation traveled to New York City to headline the Fillmore East and the Village Gate. But their future was jeopardized after the group's management reputedly ran off with their ABC advance, and in 1970 Salvation dissolved; Resnick later resurfaced in jazz circles with a handful of solo recordings as well as sideman dates behind Nat Adderley, Freddie Hubbard, and others.
4. Salvation were a vegan death metal/hardcore band from Poland.
