(1992 – 2009, 2010 – present)

Lord Belial is a swedish group, formed in winter of 1992. They released their debut album Kiss The Goat in 1995; placing them among the pioneers of Swedish black metal. Their music could be described as melodic black metal, but they are incorporating swedish death metal influences. Lord Belial is one of a few swedish black metal bands who have stood against the winds of change since the early 90’s. Their succesful releases have proved their position as one of the leaders in their genre. In January 2009, they stopped all their activities. The main reason for this is the hearing problem (tinnitus) that has grown into a quite big problem for their drummer Micke Backelin the last years. The other members in the band were not forced to put an end to the band but instead they mutually agreed that finding another drummer was not a solution for the future. Anyhow, if Micke’s hearing will be at least a little bit recovered, the band said that they would be glad to continue where they ended.

In July 2010 they announced that Lord Belial had been resurrected with the original line up.

Line up:
Dark / Thomas Backelin (vocals/guitar)
Bloodlord / Anders Backelin (bass)
Sin / Micke Backelin (drums)
Vassago / Niclas Pepa Andersson (lead guitar)

1993 - The Art of Dying (demo)
1994 - Into the Frozen Shadows (demo)
1995 - Kiss the Goat
1997 - Enter the Moonlight Gate
1999 - Unholy Crusade

    lol why does it say fuck off nisse karlen in the booklet? did he steal one of their girlfriends and that's why he exited lord belial? I have the feeling that's exactly the case considering all the anecdotal evidence of how people in extreme metal behaved back then.

    в общем-то неплохо, но после прослушивания не возникает желание выдрать сердце у первого встречного, это минус. инструментал качественный, сольняки там, то-сё, но всё это уже было тыщи раз. пресновато, в отличие от шведских же misteltein.

    that's not black metal. i was talking about their early work as i usually do with any band. black metal "died" in 96 so who cares what happened to the "scene" after that.

    moonlight gate is quite emotional but sometimes just too cheesy. kiss the goat does a better job as a coherent black metal album. it's not vanguard bm art but it's certainly a valuable contribution. same goes for setherial, satyricon etc..

    wow, setherial and naglfar are the top two similar artists, cant make that up.
