Thousand Foot Krutch- The End Is Where We Begin
“The End is Where We Begin”. Such a small phrase, but if you really think about it, it means a lot. Not only does it mean a lot to people, but it is also the title of Thousand Foot Krutch’s new album. The lead singer and guitar player Trevor McNevan described it as being, “the closing of one chapter, and beginning of another”.
The Ontario-bred band wanted to make a very raw sounding record, and that is exactly what they did. The 15 track album feature’s songs, that will more than likely connect with the average listener, and make them think of their current place of being. Thousand Foot Krutch wanted this album to connect with fans, and I think it definitely will. It brings sounds from previous albums, that fans who have been with the band for the long run will love, along with new sounds, that you will hear in the song, “Fly on the Wall”.
The introduction of the album brings the listener into a certain mood, that the band wants their fans to connect to with the lyrics, and there is no doubt in my mind that they will not only connect, but relate to the lyrics on a more personal level. Especially in the song ‘Be Somebody’, the theme relates to everyone, and how people wish they would become something, but they don’t try hard enough. There is always something looming over everyone, something that some of us fight, or we learn to accept it for what it is.
Personally I believe that Thousand Foot Krutch’s fans will love the way the bands lyrics and sounds can let them travel into the minds of the band members. Through their aggressive edgy rock style there isn’t a question into why this band has been nominated for Juno’s, and have won multiple Covenant awards from the Gospel Music Association of Canada. They’ve come far as a band, and will keep going even further with their relatable lyrics. The album leaves with a final striking message, ‘Remember, change starts with us’.
