Lord Belial is a Swedish black metal band. The band formed in 1992 and released their debut album in 1995; placing them among the pioneers of Swedish black metal. Their sound has been compared with bands such as Dissection. In January 2009, they stopped all their activities. The main reason is the hearing problem that had grown into a big problem for their drummer, Micke Backelin.
Currently, the band has resumed their activities and is working on new material.
