Rotten Records and Disestablishment
The band released two EPs in 2004 and 2005 respectively, but didn't record and release their demo that had them searching for a label until 2007, which led to Salt the Wound being signed to Rotten Records. Salt the Wound achieved underground success in 2008 through their debut studio album, Carnal Repercussions which attracted radio airplay as well as touring requests. By 2009, the album collectively sold 75,000 copies worldwide. By mid of 2009, the group finished recording their second full-length album, entitled Ares, which was released September 15, 2009 and features Matthew Wessoly, their final vocalist incepted into the band before their disbandment.
On October 30, 2009, Salt the Wound announced that they were "hanging up the towel". They held a farewell tour at the beginning of 2010, holding their final show in the states in their hometown of Cleveland.
