Bournemouth quintet South Of Salem channel their love of classic heavy metal, 80s sleaze and horror into a an all out hard rock explosion with a modern twist.


Heading into the studio with Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth/Sylosis) they found their sound and laid down their debut album ‘The Sinner Takes It All’. As of 2024 the album has over 1.5 million streams across all platforms.

 

During the pandemic the band tragically lost friends to suicide and decided to release ‘Demons Are Forever’ on World Suicide Prevention Day 2020 to raise awareness and money for UK charity MIND. The video featured fans who had been affected in their lives and built a real bond between the band and their ‘Coven,’ the affectionate name used for the South Of Salem fan group.

Since the first album's release the band have gone from strength to strength becoming known for having a high-energy stage show and becoming one of the hottest UK live acts touring with WASP, Wednesday 13, and appearing at numerous festivals in the UK and Europe including Bloodstock and Stonedead.

 

At the tail end of 2023, the band embarked on their first headline tour, which sold out venues across the UK.

In 2023 the band recorded their sophomore album ‘Death Of The Party’ with Grammy nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon/Twin Atlantic.)

 

‘Death Of The Party’ released on the 19th of January 2024, and placed in the UK album charts in the following positions:

  • #45 - Official Albums Chart

  • #4 - Rock & Metal Chart

  • #1 - Independent Album Breakers Chart

  • #4 - Vinyl Chart

  • #4 - Physical Albums Chart

  • #7 - Scottish Albums Chart

  • #3 - Independent Albums Chart

Metal Hammer awarded the album an 8/10 on release, and the lead single, 'Left For Dead', won the magazine's reader-voted Track Of The Week poll. The album has received positive reviews across the board in publications, including 10/10 in Powerplay, 8/10 in Distorted Sound and 9/10 in Ghostcult.

 

On Spotify, the album hit 150,000 streams in just over 1 week after launch, and the band now has 32,000 monthly listeners on the platform.

All of this has been achieved without any management or label.
