Hailing from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ketos bring together a complex combination of duelling guitars, heavy riffs, pounding drums, heavy growling and melodic vocals. An unapologetic explosion of violent rage and furious anger, the melodic thrash metal band have just released their debut single and accompanying video 'Chaos Theory'.
Want to know more about Chaos Theory? Hear it straight from Ketos vocalist Peter:
"Chaos Theory is about a journey through the toils of addiction. The track is hard hitting, with a furious percussive back-line built on by harmonised guitar riffs, melodic and heavy vocals and a blistering guitar solo. Its a track we love playing live, we can't wait to release it as a single!”
Ketos launched in January 2017 with the release of their debut EP 'Rise'. The band have been cutting their teeth on the club scene in both the North and South of Ireland,
where their heavy grooving style has been well received.
The band name, which is a term for the ancient Greek mythological Kraken, represents their sound, which brings together old school thrash with new wave ideas to give a unique sound that is as refreshing as it is crushingly heavy. They have been likened to Testament, Killswitch Engage, early Trivium and Arch Enemy.
Next up for Ketos is entering the studio to begin work on their debut album, which will no doubt be full of the kinds of riffs already heard on 'Rise'. Keep your eyes and ears on Ketos, you won't want to miss them.
