Death By Salt III, released Dec. 21, 2007, features 10 Utah bands on one of the first ever local compilations offered on vinyl, and is the first in a series of genre-specific DBS releases from SLUG Magazine. Limited to only 1,000 records, DBS III features rock music from the Salt Lake music scene.
The art of DBS III, beautifully designed by Paul Butterfield and Dave Styer, revolves around the theme of early Mormon resistance and rebellion against the federal government during Utah's nascent statehood. It celebrates the early courage of Utah's leaders, touching on the irony of their non-conformity 100 years before Utah became one of the most conservative states in the nation. Included is a newsprint zine containing full interviews and photos with each of the 10 Salt Lake bands featured on DBS III. A downloadable version of the music is included with every vinyl purchase.
