The second heat of the Northern Irish Metal To The Masses is tonight! We were due to post this piece earlier in the week, but the final line up for tonight was not confirmed until this morning. Cursed Sun were due to compete tonight but had to pull out due to a severe back injury suffered by their drummer. 

Of aim with this to promote the bands playing in this event so better late than… 

Death Of A Salesman 

“Death of A Salesman are a 4 piece metal band based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Coming together in the latter part of 2010. Having played alongside such bands as Asking Alexandria, Lamb Of God, Deez Nuts, Every Time I Die, Sylosis & The Dead Lay Waiting, DOAS has established themselves as one of Irelands most raw and energetic bands.   



Doom/Death Metal band formed and based in Belfast. With Jonny Gault on lead vocals and lyrics, David Malone on drums, Thomas Carmichael and Alex Keys on guitar and Theo Gordon-Boyd on bass!




We are Oracle, we play high energy, groove laden metal that is oozing with riffs, harsh vocals and filthy rhythms.
