Keops is a Croatian metal band, originally formed in Rijeka. In the very beginning, the band participated with a demo song in a festival Ritmi Globali Europei in Italy and won the first prize in the category for the best band. After a tour in Italy, they changed their lead singer and started to work on original material for the first record, and at the same time performed in various clubs, festivals, and concerts in Croatia, which created their oldest loyal fans.
The first studio album “Keops” that was released in 2012 launched the band to the top of Croatian TV and radio charts, and the album was fourth on the list of the most selling albums in Croatia. The second studio album “Lice sudbine” that was released in 2015 had a more progressive and modern sound and also gained top places on Croatian music lists.
After the second album, the band changed two group members – singer and bass player, and returned to their original metal sound. A new album – “Road to Perdition” was published on 25th of March, 2022 under the NoCut Entertainment label. The band turned to a foreign career, and soon after the release of the album, they started performing all over the EU.
During April 2023, the band was the opening act on the European tour of the iconic Overkill, and during February 2024, Keops played as a main support for Therion.
