Krysthla announce new album ‘Peace In Our Time’


Krysthla announce new album ‘Peace In Our Time’

album-cover-rob

Hailed by Metal Hammer Magazine (UK) as “setting 2016 on fire” (alongside TexturesDream TheaterAnthrax, and Devin Townsend) one of the finest extreme metal acts around will release their sophomore album this April.

Titled ‘Peace In Our Time’, this new studio offering from Krysthla sees the British five-piece producing something extremely special. Part metal, part extreme, part technical, part progressive… Aurally this is a metal fan’s nirvana. There’s an abundance of aggression on offer, and yet the power of the band is amplified even more with melodic tinges and lighter musical landscapes, which never detract from the powerhouse delivery Krysthla is renowned for.

k3hiresFollowing the announcement of their debut album ‘A War Of Souls And Desires’ in July 2015, Krysthla broke into Amazon UK’s pre-release Top 10 album chart (alongside the likes of Iron Maiden and Disturbed), featured in-store nationwide at HMV as a “recommended buy” and lead music video ‘Luminosity’ was playlisted on Scuzz TV.

Krysthla’s debut album received extremely positive reviews from the music press, setting the band up for an exceptional 2016. From their extensive European tour with Decapitated to a prestigious slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock Open Air, and main support to Textures at Mammothfest, Krysthla has crafted their music and live shows to such a high standard, that they can’t be ignored.

With ‘Peace In Our Time’, this is the sound of a band that has quickly found its place in the metal market, and given the chance, Krysthla will take the scene by storm.

The new album ‘Peace In Our Time’ is released 7th April via PHD.

We’ve been to MAGFest before and our first ever gig in the US was this event, three years ago, so it’s really fitting that we’re kicking off the tour here, now on Saturday. But now we finally get to go farther than ever before, and reach a lot of fans that can’t make it to MAG. And we get to see more of this amazing country!”

US Avant-sludge punkers Heavy Baby Sea Slugs are back with “Teenage Graveyard Party”, a four-song slammer of an EP which is set to be released on January 21st, 2017.

Hailing from the state of Texas, the band will be touring Japan and Taiwan during January 2017.

Biography:

“Let’s get one thing straight: We’re only writing this because we have to, because we’ve been told it’s the right thing to do, to move on up in the industry. Fuck that shit. We’ve never been the kind of band that does things the right way, and that’s why three and a half years into this ride we still don’t have a goddamned band Facebook or band tweeter. We have better things to do than talk about ourselves. Not doing things the right way means that the Slugs have done it all wrong… right? We spent our time digging for killer riffs, consuming P.B.R. by the gallon, even touring Japan before our home country, all on top of releasing at least an album a year. So far. Do you even know how many amps we’ve had to bury in our quest for eternal tone? Do you wanna see the amplifier graveyard? It’s sick. One could say the Slugs are an avant-garde heavy metal collective, which sounds pretentious ~as fuck~ but is actually closer to the point. Hell sometimes we resemble a gang more than a band. This dude tried to rip us off for some T-shirts once so we showed up at his house and collected. Around that time we were working (or finished?) our first album, a softy we called Evelyn McHale’s Psychedelic Freakout… A macabre reference to a most infamous suicide. Google that shit. Even though we don’t play off it anymore, the Freakout ages like fine wine or acid. After we got over Evelyn we started writing mad riffs and soon enough found ourselves at the house recording a 14-track crusty slab called Fistula Missile. We blew out the mix and never looked back. That album is a prime example of an eclectically lo-fi piece of sludge punk that sounds like crap but beats with a heart of gold. Check out the track 1,000 Dead Hipsters. It’s a favorite. This was the time of the Party-Slugs, when we still got invited to play at peoples’ houses, our shit stacked to the ceiling. The cops made sure that didn’t last long. We don’t play houses anymore… So, feeling unloved, the Slugs retreated back into our den where we concocted our third full length over the transitional period of ’14 to ’15, a decidedly depressing and downright bleak drone affair entitled 1950DA. That’s the name of a real life asteroid with the highest probability of smashing into Earth somewhere around the year 2800. ~Shout-out~. Yadda yadda yadda somewhere along the way we collectivized ourselves and started releasing shit as a label, Heavy Baby Records, putting out CDs and tapes for our friends and scene comrades and yadda yadda yadda the Slugs eventually yielded a 7″ single… Currently we’re following that badboy up with Teenage Graveyard Party, a four-song slammer of an EP that we are pressing onto some sick clear 10″ wax along with a limited run of Japanese-pressing CDs just in time for us to once more ravage the East in January 2017. Thus is the story of the Slug so far.”
