At least four bands share the name Salvation:
1) Gothic Rock band Salvation formed during '83 in the UK with Key member Daniel Mass on vocals, recived a kick-start with the first EP (Girlsoul) produced by Andrew Eldritch with the help of Doktor Avalanche and then a second EP (Jessica's Crime) produced alongside Wayne Hussey. With success from the 'All or More' EP, the band recived critical acclaim and began two 25-date UK tours, the first alongside The Alarm. The band split August '90 soon after supporting The Mission in Leeds, notable past members of the band include Mike Hayes, Choque Hosein & Benoit Farvak (Guitars), Richard Miechje (Bass) and Paul Maher (Drums). In 2005 Cherry Red Records released a collection of 20 classic Salvation tracks spanning the 4 EP's and mini LP.
2) Mi Salvation entstand aus den Relikten der Band Grind. Simon Panhofer und Jakob Köttl schreiben ein Jahr lang neue Lieder. Lukas Westerkam (Bass), Stefanie Post (Akkordeon) stoßen hinzu. Seid 2006 sorgt Bernold Wiesmeyr für dreckige Drumbeats. 2007 kommt Benedikt Friedl und versucht mit obszönen Geräuschen der Violine und Bassklarinette den Hörer aufmerksam zu machen. Diese Musik ist komplex und pompös. Bemerkenswerte Laut-Leise Dynamik. Es geht hier nicht um stundenlanges solieren Einzelner aber um Zusammenspiel.
3) "Salvation 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. Pretty raw/heavy garage band that lived bohemian-style on a decrepit houseboat in Sausalito back in the day, they were some scary speed freaks according to friends of them who hung with them a bit. Their LPs are getting very rare.
4) Salvation is a hardcore punk band from Pennsylvania. They recently put out a 7" titled "Smoke And Mirrors" on Youth Attack Records. Anyone who has seen this band live will attest that their frontman has yet to walk off a stage where his face wasn't dripping blood. Perfectly recorded pounded shrieking winds, lacerating and insensible.
