Long-running Israeli extreme metallers SALEM have set a June 6 release date for their new DVD, entitled "Salem Underground". The band will play live that night in Tel Aviv with legendary Florida death metallers OBITUARY and the new DVD will be available for the first time at the concert. According to the band, the disc "is a collection of performances from four different shows.
