|The story of melodic death metallers Deals Death began in a music college called Boomtown, where guitarist Erik Jacobson met a couple of other students. With some further twists to the story, with which we need not bother, the band released their self-financed debut ‘Internal Demons’ in 2009 to raving reviews.
In 2009 Deals Death recruited new members in Gothenburg and made the city their base. The second album, ‘Elite’, was recorded in May 2010 in Gothenburg and mixed by Jonas Kjellgren (Scar Symmetry). ‘Elite’ was released in March 2012 via Finland’s metal powerhouse Spinefarm Records became their label debut. A promo video was shot for the song ‘Fortified’ and released in April 2011. The clip made waves on the metal scene (surpassing already half a million views) and then, a fortuitous bounce launched Deals Death to a larger than just metal audience, when vocalist Olle Ekman’s ‘Death Metal Vocal Exercises’ video became a surprise YouTube hit.
Now, after five years of hard work and dedication, Deals Death has earned their name in the world of metal with tours in Sweden, Finland, Japan and the UK and having shared stages with bands such as Scar Symmetry, Hypocrisy, Dark Tranquility and making appearances at numerous festivals such as House Of Metal, Rockstad Falun & Sweden Rock; Deals Death have just started to reveal the tip of the iceberg to their potential.
