Hailed by Metal Hammer Magazine (UK) as "setting 2016 on fire” (alongside Dream Theater, Anthrax, and Devin Townsend) British extreme metal band KRYSTHLA will release their third studio album on the 16th August 2019 following a prestigious mainstage slot at Bloodstock Open Air this summer.
The British extreme metal band Krysthla have announced details of their follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed ‘Peace In Our Time’, an album which saw the Northamptonshire metal group hit the number two slot in Amazon’s rock and metal chart alongside Mastodon and While She Sleeps.
Krysthla’s third studio album,‘Worldwide Negative, will be released on 16th August and to add to this exciting announcement they have revealed a music video for the impressive new song ‘Zero Sum Game’, a track which has received extensive airplay on Kerrang!, Primordial, Bloodstock Radio and many more! To add to this, Metal Hammer’s Louder readers voted the song number one in their Tracks Of The Week, which also featured Slipknot in the final top three!
Pre-orders for ‘Worldwide Negative’ saw the new Krysthla album reach number two in Amazon's Hard Rock/Metal and Heavy Metal charts, with Slipknot's upcoming album ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ at number one.
Speaking about the band’s return, producer and Krysthla guitarist Neil Hudson says: “We are extremely excited to finally reveal details about our new album, ‘Worldwide Negative’. We always push ourselves to the limit when producing new music, but this upcoming release exceeded what we thought we had in the tank. It’s been an exhaustive but exhilarating process! ‘Worldwide Negative’ is an album with more of an introspective view towards ourselves as the human race, how we impact the world and each other. In the pursuit of happiness, safety and security we're slowly destroying our sense of empathy and giving in to a darker way of life that ultimately can only end in misery.”
‘Worldwide Negative’ was produced, mixed and mastered by Neil Hudson at Initiate Audio and Media Studios in Wellinborough, England.
Krysthla’s debut album ‘A War Of Souls And Desires’ 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 their second album ‘Peace In Our Time,’ Krysthla broke into Amazon's Top 10, charting at number two between the likes of Deep Purple, Mastodon, and While She Sleeps, with the music video 'The Minor Mystery Of Death' premiered by Scuzz TV and Metal Hammer.
‘Worldwide Negative’ is released 16th August 2019 via PHD.
