Edition six of Cum On Feel The Newz. That's one third of the number of the beast...
Let's do this...
Nightwish will immortalise their 'Endless Forms Most Beautiful' tour on DVD. The symphonic Metal visionaries are set to release their new live milestone 'Vehicle Of Spirit' on November 4th, featuring two full concerts and plenty of bonus material.
Nightwish keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen told us: "The title 'Vehicle Of Spirit' came from a friend of Troy's, who after seeing our show a few years ago defined Nightwish as 'a vehicle of spirit that defies category'. That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title"
Two-piece teenage slacker-punx Serial Chiller have released their new single 'Life's Rough'. Speaking about the single Sam said: "I tried to put to paper the intertwining mind fuck that is internet culture... its about the egotistical borderline obsessive creation of another world through the use of social media - there is no individuality, only concepts of self. Its about those people who believe their tongue is a lost scroll of a beat poet - as it unravels you realise you're wasting your time."
And here it is...

Two years after the release of their seminal 2014 album 'The Divination Of Antiquity', Winterfylleth return with their highly anticipated new release 'The Dark Hereafter' on Spinefarm/Candlelight Records. Thematically 'The Dark Hereafter' casts a light on how we are now seeing the negative, long term effects of bad policy making and global oligarchy playing out in our societies.
Featuring five brand new tracks, 'The Dark Hereafter' finds Winterfylleth at their most musically focused and lyrical best. The band once again used the amazing production talents of Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studio and Tim Turan and Turan Audio to make the record a reality.
Speaking about the new record, guitarist Chris Naughton told us: "After two years away we are really pleased to share this new record with you all. We thought a lot about making it, what it has to say lyrically, what that means and how we progress along with that as a band approaching our 10th year of existence. In recent years it feels like we have been living in an uncertain and unsettling world, and on 'The Dark Hereafter' we wanted to bring the issues surrounding that uncertainty to life, within these new songs. They carry a lot of meaning and sentiment for us and we hope they will also have that meaning for you too. We look forward to seeing you all along the way in 2016/17."

The band told us: "With Nick Pierce recovering from back surgery and still unable to tour, we've called on our long time friend and true musician/performer Jordan Mancino to tackle drum duties for all of our upcoming dates through August. Jordan is a force behind the kit and we are grateful he's available to help us continue the #watchingtheworldtour in Europe while Nick continues his road back to touring."
Jordan said: "I am stoked to have this honour filling in for my brother, Nick, while he recovers and heals from his surgery. It's a daunting task to fill Nick's shoes and to play with the metal legacy that is Unearth. I will do my best to support all that is the mosh that Unearth will bring!"
Pierce had this to say about his temporary replacement: "My man Jordan Mancino of Wovenwar will be ripping the kit until I return later this year. Jordan is an incredibly tight drummer and hits hard as hell, I can't wait to see what he does for Unearth!"
