Music: Thousand Foot Krutch
A Christian Rock/Metal band formed in the mid-to-late-1990s, Thousand Foot Krutch is known well for their diverse musical style, unique vocalist, and surprisingly high popularity outside of the Christian music industry. Led by vocalist Trevor McNevan, the band has released 7 albums to date; Set It Off in 2001, Phenomenon in 2003, The Art of Breaking in 2005, The Flame In All of Us in 2007, Welcome to the Masquerade in 2009, The End Is Where We Begin in 2012, and Oxygen: Inhale in 2014.


Thousand Foot Krutch provides examples of:

  • Alternative Metal: Mixed with Nu Metal, it's always been part of their sound, but they've switched to this with The End Is Where We Begin.
  • Black Sheep Hit: "Rawkfist" was what may be their most popular song (until "War of Change"), but unless you count their debut album, it is a far cry from what they usually do.
  • Broken Bird: The subject of "Broken Wing."
  • Christian Rock: It's fairly obvious that they are, especially if you listen closely to their lyrics. Still, much of their fanbase is non-Christian.
  • Crowd Song: In 'Puppet', Trevor is talking to the crowd in the song.
  • Darker and Edgier: Their song 'Hurt', though lighter than a lot of their usual work, has a very dark tone to the lyrics and emotion. The song was written about Trevor trying to get his friend out of committing suicide, though it is unknown whether he failed or not.
  • Fun with Acronyms: The band is sometimes called TFK.
  • I Am the Band: Trevor.
  • Metal Scream: Trevor does this a lot. Usually during the breakdowns or in the background.
  • Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Usually a solid 6, though they sometimes border on 7, while their softer work goes from 2 to 5.
  • New Sound Album: Pretty much all of them.
  • Nice Guy: Trevor. Just watch his interviews.
  • Non-Appearing Title: 'Quicken'. The title is never said in the song, but the song was said to have been called that because of how the pace slows down and speeds up rapidly.
    • 'E for Extinction' as well.
  • Nu Metal: The band's second album featured many elements of this, comparing them to the likes of Korn and Linkin Park.
  • Out-of-Genre Experience: "Born This Way" is straight-up southern metal in the vein of Black Label Society.
  • Post-Grunge: The Flame in All of Us had a few songs with elements of this.
  • Refrain from Assuming: "Be Somebody" is often called "I'm Just A Boy Inside A Man" thanks to this.
  • Stage Names: Trevor's nickname is 'Teerawk', but barely any fans of the band know him by that name.
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: Thousand Foot "K"rutch. "Rawkfist" is their most famous example, but on the whole, the band sticks with proper spelling.
