From the cold coasts of the UK comes a promising 4-piece band that bring an invitingly tasty mixture of icy doom metal and smoky thrash metal on their debut EP. Thuum drop a swift blow to the jaw with Through Smoke, Comes Fire. Though only...

Did someone just say something about guitars?
Noel checks in ahead of the Obituary and Vader shows next month to talk about Krysthla album number 3 riffage and more.
"In the infancy of writing and demoing this 3rd album I could instantly tell something was different from the previous 2 albums. It's not that the Krysthla sound has changed or there's any great shift in style on this one, it's just in my eyes a gigantic leap forward in song writing and attack.
The guitar parts on this record have taken me on a journey from elation to frustration with some of the most satisfying riffs and melodies to play on a guitar, to absolutely mind bending patterns that I needed a degree in maths to understand. This time around, writing riffs in your head that were actually out of my ability to play in the beginning on guitar has led to new techniques being learned and more homework than any university student could wish for, but the trade off from all this is what's shaping up to be an incredible album which both ourselves and Krysthla fans will be very happy with.
Thanks to some super catchy riffs and melodies, the use of light and shade, and not forgetting the punishing full throttle onslaught we are renowned for, I think this album will also open the band up to a whole new fan base."
