Hailed by Metal Hammer magazine as “setting 2016 on fire” (alongside Textures, Dream Theater, Anthrax, and Devin Townsend), one of the finest extreme metal acts in he UK 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. Extreme metal; part technical, part progressive….there’s an abundance of aggression on offer, and yet the power of the band is amplified via more melody which never detracts from the powerhouse delivery Krysthla is renowned for.

Following 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.
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 cannot 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.
