Caution: Thieves’ EP “Songs from the Great Divide” is out now. They are today releasing their video for the final track on the EP, entitled “And You’ll See the End,” it caps off “Songs from the Great Divide” with a poignant moment and considerably slower tempo than the blistering pace of the rest of the EP.
It’s a track that is particularly close to vocalist Nicholas Simonsen’s heart, saying “I reached a point in my life where I was so far from the human being that I wanted to be. I was sabotaging relationships in my life, pushing away issues that I had and just refusing to see that I could change for the better. And You’ll See The End is about me starting on the right path. I finally took steps to work on myself and getting a grasp on my mental health. The first step was writing this song”
‘Songs from the Great Divide’ EP is live now at Caution: Thieves webstore and at iTunes and all good online retailers.

The German black metal stalwarts comment: “With this music clip revolving around the classic track ‘Schwarze Wälder’, we are returning to our debut full-length. Horaz has filmed the impressive nature of our Black Forest home on his meandering hiking trips and intertwined them with impressions from our show at Summerbreeze Open Air 2014. Our deep roots in the valleys and woods of our region are meeting the original black metal of our early days – charges with pure raw energy.”
Krysthla have revealed ‘The Minor Mystery Of Death’, the third single and official music video from their new album ‘Peace In Our Time’ which was 7th April. It has broken into Amazon UK’s official chart already, where it hit the number two spot, sandwiched between Deep Purple and Mastodon, alongside other new releases by Kreator, While She Sleeps, Bodycount and more.
Guitarist Neil Hudson says of the track: “The Minor Mystery Of Death is about embracing the end. Death is an absolute certainty and we’re living lives that seem like they’re going to last forever until it’s too late and your mortality is thrust into your hands. We’re very precious towards our lives but don’t actually live them.”
Peace In Our Time was influenced by Krysthla’s 2016 European tour with Decapitated – with Hudson revealing that one experience on the road will live with him forever:
“On the Greek border, I saw a refugee girl stood on the other side of the motorway while we were parked up getting fuel. She saw us looking over at the thousands of grubby tents cooking the inhabitants in the scorching heat and fixed her eyes on me for a few seconds. “I gave her a nod. She jumped over the barrier and ran over the motorway to the garage, dodging traffic on her way. She walked over, looked me straight in the eye, said something in Syrian and gave me a highfive and hugged my leg. “I left a bit of me behind that day. We sobbed in the van as we left. It was utterly heart breaking to hear the hum of bodies murmuring in the boiling sun.” Hudson adds: “The album is influenced heavily, and almost solely by the fact I am a father. With so much unrest and violence in the world, it’s easy to turn your back and pretend none of it has an impact on your life. “Or somehow because it’s a long way from home it’s someone else’s problem. War does not sleep. War does not stop. It doesn’t choose who dies and who lives. But the people who light the fire and fan the flames do.”
