Industry heads attempting to anticipate future musical tangents, can sometimes be left dumbfounded. The direction of music is not linear in fashion. Popular music is invariably determined in the realms of streets, clubs, garages, home studios and the like. Thick guitars coupled with Hip Hop joints, was taken to a new level with the collaboration of Aerosmith and Run DMC. "Walk This Way" gave birth to musical mutations which led to a symphony of transformation.
Thousand Foot Krutch, mutants of today's culture, have been infused by mixed breeds of music. The outcome is a creative force exploiting turntables, powerful guitars and dominant vocals. Tracks rock and groove from start to finish, causing even the skeptic to tap a foot.
Thousand Foot Krutch is not another „rap metal‰ regurgitation. TFK songs have a decidedly different musical substance. Trevor McNevan, lead vocalist for the band writes music that penetrates lives. Trevor's lyrics don't try to establish contact with the audience through rebellious content or conduct. Instead, his lyrics point in a different direction, a direction that massages the soul.
Finally, a band that delivers a live performance that leaves you wanting more. If you don't like the mosh pit, you may consider standing further back from these rhyme animals. When the lights come on, it's energy from the first crack of the snare. Thousand Foot Krutch truly rocks the space, whether it's a small club or large stadium. Their energy and passion for music explodes. Each member of the band is an energetic self-contained show. Off stage their professional conduct and well-mannered personalities, leave you wondering if their mother is standing by.
Remember when "Grunge" was pop and young bands were coming to a head? It was the era of Pearl Jam, and their early project "TEN" impacted many. Their album had hit songs from beginning to end. It spoke to youth in a way most of us couldn't understand. "Set It Off", Thousand Foot Krutch's label debut re-invents those emotions. TFK creates a feeling one could describe as coming from "God's appointed workers"
What does Thousand Foot Krutch mean? TFK symbolizes the trials and the "hard times" that we all face in life. It's stating to trust God to pull you through the situation, and not yourself, or your own strength. Life gets crazy when you try to do it all yourself, and eventually one day you realize, you can't. He's a big God, who says "nothing is impossible for Him", so let Him prove it.
