After the release of the ‘Attention’ EP they have followed up with three singles and accompanying music videos gaining extensive airplay on BBC Radio One, Across the Line and with their single ‘Nosebleed’ featuring on Kerrang!.

“Death of A Salesman are a 5 piece Hardcore/Metal Band based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Coming together in late 2010. Having made an instant impression on the Irish music scene the band were booked for a wealth of shows throughout the Irish club scene and began to make a name for themselves as one of the most energetic, relentless bands in Ireland. Their growing reputation earned them support slots with Heavyweights Asking Alexandria, Lamb Of God, Sylosis, Every Time I Die, Deez Nuts and The Dead Lay Waiting, as well as local heroes Hero In Error & Red Enemy. The band released their first demo in January 2011 to acclaim from fans both old and new, selling out of all physical copies within days of release.

In November 2011 the band entered the studio to record their second release “The Art Of Misdirection” released in Summer 2012

A relentless attitude to touring, and sheer determination has seen Death Of A Salesman gain momentum steadily throughout their career, and with this never say die approach, their momentum can only increase.


We re a Metalcore/Progressive Metal band from Belfast. We are new to the scene and we hope to earn a place in modern day metal.
