Krysthla Drummer To Step Down Due To Medical Condition Plus Band Release New Lyric Video







Krysthla drummer To Step Down With Replacement Already Confirmed & The Band Release New Lyric Video 'Yawm Al Qiyamah’

It’s with much regret and sadness that Krysthla has to announce the departure of Wayne Minney from the band due to medical reasons which could result in surgery or worse if he doesn’t stop playing drums.

For some time now Wayne has been suffering with severe sciatica caused by spinal compression and degradation in his lower back. MRI scans have identified the problem and the doctor’s advice is to stop drumming as soon as possible. This is because every time he plays, he aggravates the issue and if this continues to occur then the only method of treatment available would be very complicated surgery. Surgery that carries with it a very real risk of paralysis.

This is obviously a real blow for us. Wayne is family and has been integral to the band for such a long time. We’ve all tried to make this work, truly, but not at the risk of his well-being.

Wayne will continue to perform live with Krysthla, and his final show with the band will be 25th November 2017 at Firebug, Leicester.

Serving as a reminder as to just how important Wayne’s been to Krysthla, check out this new lyric video for ‘Yawm Al Qiyamah’ (c/o Very Metal Art): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=catIN9HzHTk






This is not the end for Krysthla. As one chapter ends, another one begins.

We’d like to officially announce and welcome Nicholas Plews as Krysthla’s new drummer. Many of you will know him through his work with bands Aghast and Corpsing, and we look forward to taking our next steps with Nick behind the drumkit.

More news to come. For now, please read the statements below from Wayne and Nick.

“After a lot of thought over the past few months, I have decided that I need to leave Krysthla at the end of the year. I have been suffering from constant back and leg pain for the past few years and it has finally reached a point where I can't continue in the band without risking more serious injury and pain. Just playing our set is becoming more and more difficult and painful.

Being in a band has been a huge part of my life and it has been with the same small core group of people for over 20 years, from Krysthla, back through Gutworm and even before that, when it was just me and Noel jamming to Metallica, Sepultura and Pantera!

Neil, Carl, Noel and Adi are as close to me as family and I wish them every success as Krysthla continues to grow. Thanks for dragging me along, pushing me past my limits and being some of the closest people in my life for well over 20 years, I love you all. I'm not wishing you any luck, you don't need it.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the past 20 years, whether it has been during my time in Krysthla or back in the Gutworm days. I won't list names, there are far too many. I'll still be around so it's not goodbye, just a heartfelt appreciation for being there on the ride with me.

Take care, I'll see you soon. W"
– Wayne Minney

"I've been following Krysthla for a while now and to be part of it moving forward is truly awesome. I can't wait to get behind the kit and get this machine rolling through 2018 and beyond" – Nick Plews

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…
