The 5-piece extreme metal band, who in the past have toured with Decapitated and supported the likes of Slayer and Gojira, implement a variety of sounds in this new release. Throughout their albums, they have worked up to creating a sound that stands out, with hints of atmosphere fused with progressive death metal and some of the most aggressive vocals, with a cherry of cleans on top. Worldwide Negative will make you want to punch somebody, but with emotion.
While Krysthla have stayed loyal to the delivery of their blackened guitar riffs, regular blast beats and vocals that rip right through your soul, this album feels a little more progressive when compared to the previous records, especially the track “Reawaken”, which is trying to tell a positive message through the lyrics. Worldwide Negative is a prime example of how real musicians can effortlessly develop their own sound, whilst challenging the norm. Think In Flames with hints of Dream Theater but still inclusive of the death metal spin. And of course, the atmospheric guitar playing during parts of some songs, which totally bring out the emotion of what Krysthla tried to create with this album.
“Zero Sum Game” is the fourth song from Worldwide Negative and has been released in early June this year, with a music video to promote the general release on the 16th August. It has already been given extensive airplay on Kerrang!, Primordial and Bloodstock Radio to name a few, as well as was voted #1 by Metal Hammer’s Louder readers, in the tracks of the week, which also saw Slipknot in the top 3. Check it out for a taster of the album. The song is about life and death, but it also highlights the void most of us are stuck in, spending our entire lives chasing something completely meaningless. Every single song on this album has its own individual story but the whole album has a dark theme throughout it, which is probably the reason behind the dark album title.
You can catch them destroying the main stage at Bloodstock this year.
