Edition fifty seven of Cum On Feel The Newz.

57 Varieties was a slogan first appearing in 1896, based on the many types of food that Heinz produced - in reality far more than 57. The compulsion to label and classify hasn't diminished over the years, so over a burger and several condiments we came up with 57 different Heavy Metal genres. Bottle of ketchup of your choice to the first person to name them all.

Let's do this...

Gov't Mule
JOANovARC
Resin
Woodhawk
Living Colour
Shaman's Harvest
Zealot's Desire
Black Stone Cherry
Walter Trout
The One Hundred
Alien Weaponry
The Dead Milkmen
eOn
GraVil
The Struts
Sacroscum

 

Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry are thrilled to announce the release of their long time coming blues EP, 'Black to Blues' which is out on Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group on 29th September.

Before reaching their current level of success, the guys in the Kentucky-based active rock powerhouse were just teenagers finding their way jamming on the blues. On the heels of their well-received 'Kentucky' album, the quartet issues the masterful 6-song EP, 'Black To Blues', a collection of blues classics and obscurities reimagined with the meaty moxie of classic BSC.

"A defining moment for me was realizing all the rock n' roll that I loved came from the blues," vocalist Chris says.




Back after eight years, New York's very own Living Colour return with their new album 'Shade' - their first album since the critically acclaimed 'The Chair in the Doorway' in 2009.

'Come On' is the leading single from the blues/rock band's forthcoming album. The single pairs melodic riffs with raw vocals generating a true rock anthem. Produced by Andre Betts, the band have spent 5 years perfecting the project.

Living Colour will set off on a 25 date headline world tour this September, ahead of the album's release.




Gov't Mule have unveiled the lyric video for new single 'Sarah, Surrender', from their latest album 'Revolution Come… Revolution Go', out now through Spinefarm Records.

Fronted by Allman Brothers Band's longtime guitarist Warren Haynes, his dynamic vocals sound as strong and rich as ever on 'Sarah, Surrender', crooning soulfully over a blues-funk groove.

The band will also be coming to the UK for a tour this October, which includes a date at London's Bluesfest at The O2 Arena alongside Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.




A few weeks after a limited release "only for the fans" of their brand new full-length record 'Purgatory Inherited', French savage Metallers eOn (Element Of Noise) just unleashed this effort for a worldwide extended release on Bandcamp while the entire album is available right now for full-stream at the same location.

Founded in 1999 by four long-time friends around the French Riviera, eOn recorded a first self-titled demo in 2001 and made the first paths on stage at the same time.Three years later, the band released its debut EP followed by the first full-length 'Unscarred' in 2009.

'Purgatory Inherited' was released in 2017, after the arrival of a fifth member, Ranko from Otargos and Svart Crown.




London melodeath group GraViL are getting ready to make their mark at Bloodstock this August and now they've confirmed, in association with FatAngel Bookings, a series of headline UK shows in August and September.

Following the announcement of Bloodstock and these new shows, GraViL have also been confirmed for HRH Metal 2018.

GraViL frontman Grant Stacey says: "We enjoyed our last run of shows so much we couldn't wait to get out again and meet the awesome metal heads that support what we do. We're beyond excited about these dates, and will be pulling out all the stops to makes these shows extra special."




Acclaimed UK rock band The Struts today announce a very exclusive headline show at The Garage in London, in celebration of their brand new single 'One Night Only'. Taking place on Monday 18th September it's going to be the hottest ticket in town as the flamboyant four-piece stride back across the Atlantic to play an intimate venue, ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.

Having just played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, The Struts meteoric rise continues a-pace. 'One Night Only' has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.

The newly-released lyric video captures the band in true rock'n'roll style, and is the perfect taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due next year. It's the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut 'Everybody Wants'.




Missouri rockers Shaman's Harvest have released the official music video for The Come Up, the first single from their upcoming album Red Hands Black Deeds which is due out July 28th via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.

Speaking about the track, which tackles social media and depression, singer Nathan Hunt explains "There's so much negativity on social media today a lot of people struggling with real issues and with where we're at as a nation. This song is therapeutic for me personally, and I hope it speaks to our fans. Sometimes when you just can't change shit, you've got to realize you can't mold everything in your life. You kind of just have to roll with the punches."

'Red Hands Black Deeds' is a darker, visceral, and more layered sound than past repertoire. The album ranges from the ominous, haunting vibes of the title track prelude, to quieter, more vulnerable moments.




Walter Trout has released another new track from his brand new studio album 'We're All In This Together', due out on September 1st via Provogue/Mascot Label Group .

'Gonna Hurt Like Hell' features the guitar skills of fellow bluesman Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Speaking about the track, Trout explains: "When I was trying to figure out what to write for Kenny Wayne to record with us, I just figured it all comes back to the blues and let's both of us go back to our roots.

"Musically it's where we both come from, so this is a straight-ahead shuffle and I think he and I really complement each other in our playing. This cut was really fun to record, and I think it's smokin'!!"




Evolution is a revolution as ZEALOTS DESIRE morph from straight hard rock to something that is a more classic sound that they like fans to feel strengthened and empowered by. Hailing from London, Ontario, ZEALOTS DESIRE live up to their impassioned name.

They have a fanatical desire to bring their unique and genre-redefining brand of heavy rock to the masses. Inspired by bands as diverse and talented as System of a Down, Led Zeppelin, Alice In Chains, and appropriately, Tool, ZEALOTS DESIRE describe their sound as "huge, intense, yet graceful and delicate" and warn their legions of fans that their forthcoming album should be cranked as loud as humanly possible.

A video for 'The Fool' is released today. "The Fool is one of our favorite songs to perform. It seems to go through all the motions. There's still something that feels peculiar to us about the chorus as well and we love that about it."



It's been an exciting few months for The One Hundred; having unveiled their debut record 'Chaos + Bliss' via Spinefarm Records just last month, the band released a kick-ass (literally) video for 'Monster' and then performed at the Download Festival as well as 2000 Trees.

But the party doesn't stop there, as TOH will also appear at this year's Bloodstock Festival, Catton Park, on August 12th, and have also announced a headline show in London and some more Euro dates.

The band will headline The Dome in North London on October 13th before heading out on a short run of dates in Europe covering Paris, Cologne, Hamburg and Berlin.




Summer is here and to celebrate JOANovArc have just unveiled the new video for their forthcoming single out August 25th, 'Seeds Of Summer', and donating some of the proceeds to the victims of Grenfell Tower.

"We wanted to help the victims of the Grenfell tower as this tragedy is close to home for us. We have spent many years in London performing, living and working. We would like to give something to the community that has lost so much"

n your face and full of energy, the vibrant Seeds Of Summer is released as a very limited edition 7". The single is taken from their critically acclaimed debut album 'Ride Of Your Life' released on Red Vixen Records.




New Zealand thrash Metal band Alien Weaponry just entered its second week at the top of the Spotify NZ Viral 50 Music Chart with the song 'Rū Ana Te Whenua'.

The song made headlines in its first week of release when it clocked up over half a million hits on Facebook in just 72 hours. "We didn't expect this kind of reaction," says singer Lewis de Jong. "We were at a music industry thing and this guy comes up to me and says, 'Congratulations you are number 2 on Spotify,' and I'm like, 'What?! You're kidding, right?' Next day it was number 1."

It's been a busy month for the teenage trio, who have also been nominated for the coveted Apra Silver Scroll award for their song Urutaa; and are currently in the middle of a national tour where they have been playing to sell-out audiences.




Unholy Prophecies sets October 28th, 2017 as the international release date for Death Metaller's Sacroscum's highly anticipated debut album 'Drugs & Death'.

Ever aptly titled, 'Drugs & Death' is a scourge upon one's sanity and sanctity, a black-hole blight that swallows you whole. Sacroscum aren't fucking around.

Today a first tune is presented from the album. The chosen track is 'Waste, Horror & Degradation' and it is a perfect foretaste of what you can expect on 'Drugs & Death'.




Since releasing their award-winning EP 'Persecution Complex' in 2015, Leicestershire's Resin's unique mixture of Grunge and hard-hitting heavy Rock has continued to gain attention from all corners of the UK and beyond.

Now with the addition of violinist Emma Bennett, Resin have announced details of the release of a new album 'The Cycle Of Need', expected to be released late 2017 / early 2018.

As well as revisiting a couple of tracks from their first album, 'The Cycle Of Need' will feature new songs and a selection of acoustic tracks.




Calgary's masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry Woodhawk will be hitting the road this September for their second Western Canadian tour in support of their full length album 'Beyond The Sun' released this past April.

The album was produced by the band with Jesse Gander to follow their 2014 debut EP. Made of equal parts 1970's Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who's who, Woodhawk are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés.

With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band's lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks.




Philanthropic record label The Giving Groove is pleased to announce the signing of Philly punk icons The Dead Milkmen to its roster. For more nearly 35 years, the Milkmen have been happily skewering pop culture and confounding critics with their quirky brand of smart, satirical punk, and amassing a huge cult following with the hit singles 'Bitchin' Camaro' and 'Punk Rock Girl'.

The band will release their new EP, 'Welcome to the End of the World', this autumn on The Giving Groove. "You're either going to buy it or not", says frontman Rodney Anonymous, adding an ominous warning: "If you don't buy it, don't blame us when you get eaten by wolves, because this EP will be the only thing standing between you and the wolves."

Today, the Dead Milkmen share advance single 'Only the Dead Get Off at Kymlinge', a spooky tale based on the urban legend surrounding the Stockholm Metro's Kymlinge ghost station and the haunted Silverpilen "Silver Arrow" train that is said to usher passengers to mysterious and terrible fates there.
