A complex combination of duelling guitars, heavy riffs, pounding drums, heavy growling and melodic vocals, Ketos are an unapologetic explosion of violent rage and furious anger. Hailing from
Belfast, Northern Ireland Ketos are a melodic thrash metal band, and will be releasing their debut single 'Chaos Theory' on the 2nd of June.
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.
Want to know more about Chaos Theory? Hear it straight from Ketos vocalise 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!”
Next up for Ketos is supporting Carcer City in Belfast on the 1st of June, then entering the studio to begin work on their debut album, which will no doubt be full of the kinds of riffs already heard on Chaos Theory. Keep your eyes and ears on Ketos, you won't want to miss their return.
