Year Formed


Krysthla was forged into being during 2012 and proudly boasts four of the original members (Neil Hudson, Noel and Carl Davis, and Wayne Minney) of UK metal legends Gutworm (SPV/Steamhammer and Anticulture Records 1998-2010) and Adi Mayes, influential frontman of metal heavyweights Deadeye (2000-2009). After spending over two years writing and perfecting a new sound and crafting tracks worthy of taking on the music world once again, Krysthla are without a doubt already stamping their mark on the UK metal scene. 

With years of experience both live (multiple tours and major festival appearances across Europe and the USA) and recording (Label releases with Europewide distribution through Plastic Head and music videos on MTV, Scuzz and Kerrang!) under their collective belts, they have the expertise and talent to lay down truly crushing performances 'An instant, unpleasant wake-up call that leaves you dazed and disorientated for ages afterwards' (9/10 live review Metal Hammer).

Krysthla released the sampler "A Thousand Points Of Light" three track ep in 2013 while the debut full length album, "A War Of Souls And Desires" is in the process of being recorded at Initiate Audio and Media recording studios with Neil Hudson taking on the role as engineer/producer. This will be released on 28th September 2015, and the band have already signed both European and Worldwide deals with Plastic Head (PHD) so that the album will be available in physical CD format in record stores throughout the UK and Europe, as well as via Amazon and all quality online CD retailers. The worldwide digital distribution deal will also make the album available for download via all quality digital stores including iTunes, Deezer, Googleplay and Spotify.
