Lord Ketil is a Black Metal band from the north of France, founded by Alkorne in 2006 and joined by Psycho in 2016.
Alkorne studied classical music and learned trumpet at the Conservatory of Music and has quickly been imbued with a classical musical culture. With the advent of Heavy Metal he also discovered a new kind of sound and soon got excited about the most extreme music genres. So he started to learn guitar and bass and composing Black Metal songs. Lord Ketil's music is directly inspired from both of that universes.
Proudly influenced by dark atmospheres and cold sounds from bands of the old norwegian scene like Immortal, Emperor, Burzum, Darkthrone and Mayhem, Lord Ketil is full of Satanism, dark melodies, unhealthy riffs, medieval and pagan themes and songs resolutely Black Metal.
In year 2008, Lord Ketil created its own recording studio, Anti-Life Studios and started working on its first Demo/EP, "Dod Under En Frossen Himmel" that came out in february 2010. Then, Alkorne stopped musical activities to take care of his studio, career and family.
Five years later, Lord Ketil was back on the scene and prepared to record its first LP album. "The Way Of The Opponent" was released in july 2016 and is digitally distributed by "Sepulchral Silence". The debut EP, "Dod Under En Frossen Himmel" is also digitally reissued in november 2016.
Late 2016, Psycho, also known for performing in bands Hats Barn and Antilife joined Lord Ketil as vocalist and what started as a one-man project became a band. Both started to work on a new album recorded in spring 2017 and in autumn, the band signed a distribution deal with french labels Ogmios Underground and Mallevs Records.
The new album, "Long Lone Among The Wolves", is released on march 2018 on CD and limited edition cassette tape.
