Edition sixty seven of Cum On Feel The Newz.

Ah, 1967. What a year for all things groovy and psychedelic and where rock started to harden up nicely. We are feeling it today, decked out in paisley and lining up Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and The Monkees on the office turntable.

Let's do this...

Arch Enemy
Butcher Babies
Arkona
Amberian Dawn
Kill The Ideal
Jess And The Ancient Ones
Satyricon
Sepultura
Turbowolf
LA Guns
Bark
GWAR

 

Having just completed a successful run of dates across Eastern Europe on the "Will To Power International Tour", extreme Metal giants Arch Enemy are back with another ripping single from their recently released album, 'Will To Power', with the music video single for 'The Race'.

Founding member Michael Amott commented: "This was actually the last song written for the 'Will To Power' album. Listening through all the material we had up to that point we agreed that the album needed one more song that would be a relentless and fast paced counterpoint to some of the more epic compositions we already had.

We sent Alissa the music and she came up with a thought provoking set of lyrics with an intense vocal arrangement that complemented the music perfectly. We've been having a blast playing this song on the current tour and we had our video director Patric Ullaeus come out to capture the mayhem at our recent show in Helsinki, Finland... Enjoy 'The Race'!"




With the recent release of their ninth studio album, 'Deep Calleth Upon Deep', Black Metal ground breakers Satyricon have proven they still lead the way in extreme music. Today they unveil a brand-new video for the track 'To Your Brethren In The Dark'.

Speaking about the new video, frontman and band visionary, Satyr tells us, "I wanted 'To Your Brethren In The Dark' to be a director's interpretation of the song, rather than a band performance type of thing. Seeing what we do through the eyes of another artist is always interesting to me and just like the song, the video has become a little bit of a journey on its own.

'To Your Brethren In The Dark' is definitely one of the flagship songs on the record. It is about emotion, our nature, the spirits, the autumn, the sombre and rainy days, those who we lost and the ones who we have not met yet. You could say it is a tribute to the sorrow in man and to the drama of the nature we surround ourselves with. A song for the dark towers of the past and those who will rise in the future. Pass the torch to your brethren in the dark."




One reunion has long been top of the wishlist of many a fan: the combination of Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis under the L.A. Guns banner. Now, what once seemed like a distant memory with no hope of return has finally come about and those supporters of the band have been amply rewarded for keeping their fingers crossed and hopes up.

'The Missing Peace' will please fans of not only their classic albums but also their heralded comeback releases. The new record feels like the next logical step after 'Waking The Dead' and sees the duo newly invigorated with this diverse set of crowd pleasing dynamic sleaze rockers and epic, slower songs.

A lyric video for the new single 'The Flood's The Fault Of The Rain' is available now. LA Guns appear in the UK on the 2nd and 4th November at Underworld, Camden, and on 3rd November at Trash, Bradford.




With three weeks to go until the release of their third studio album, 'Lilith', Hollywood-based Metal outfit Butcher Babies have released another new track off the upcoming record.

The song, 'Pomona (Shit Happens)' is perhaps the bands most unhinged and irreverent track to date, and fans who pre-order 'Lilith' will be able to download it as an instant grat track.

The new record comes out 10 November on Century Media Records.




Jess and the Ancient Ones are an Occult Rock band from Kuopio, Finland whose purpose is the exploration of magical realms beyond the mundane, based upon the personal occult experiences of the writers.

With the vocal talent Jess as their frontwoman and three guitars in the line-up, JATAO draw inspiration from Heavy Metal and rock groups of the classic era, such as Mercyful Fate, Roky Erickson, Iron Maiden and Abba.

'Groovy, heavy, psychedelic beat music? Hard death rock? Occult head-exploding meltdown? All of them and more. "I cannot put a label on it, I just make it as it comes"', says band guitarist and composer Thomas Corpse, who also created the lysergic cover art to The Horse and Other Weird Tales.

The trippy video for new track 'Minotaure', directed by Tommi Hoffren is the first taster from their upcoming record:




Bark is the new pack of Antwerp stray dogs of extreme sound. Infectious dirty riffs and a voice that tears your speakers apart - they serve their tunes raw, unpolished, gritty and dark.

The band have released a new lyric video by DP Rey from the upcoming album 'Like Humans Do', which is released on 10th November via Sound of the Hound Records.

Check it out here:




Bristolian alt-rockers Turbowolf have today released, 'The Free Life', the title track from their upcoming third album which will be released via So Recordings in March 2018.

The song is a dark, stomping sonic cyclone laden with searing, overdriven guitar and seething bass lines. With a venomous opening that artfully builds to the edge of delirious euphoria before exploding into a hammering groove, the track's joyous chorus is a swirling exploration of freedom, soaring into a howling cry that questions the nature of reality itself.

Turbowolf will be unveiling songs from the new album next week as they blast through a seven-date headline tour culminating in a just-announced free Halloween show at London's Old Blue Last on October 31st.




In early 2018, Brazilian Thrash Metal legends Sepultura will head out on a lengthy and extensive European headline tour in support of their highly acclaimed album 'Machine Messiah', released in early 2016 via Nuclear Blast. Be prepared for a full 90 minute onslaught of pure Sepultura, with a set list featuring new hits as well as some timeless classics.

After an extremely successful tour with Kreator and a raft of festival shows in 2017, Sepultura will return to the UK, Ireland and Europe with their most powerful billing yet. German technical death metal masters Obscura are confirmed as direct support, followed by US-based death/black Metallers Goatwhore and New Jersey's finest deathcore outfit, Fit For An Autopsy.

The tour starts on 23rd February in Germany, and includes 6 UK and Ireland dates in March.




GWAR have just now released 'The Blood of Gods' via Metal Blade Records, and unveiled their new video for 'I'll Be Your Monster.'

"This record is gonna knock your socks off. I mean, I don't have feet, but I think that's a thing. It rocks! It is quite simply, the best collection of recorded music in the history of the world. Buy it. It will leave you feeling guilty and emotionally drained, but it feels good while you listen to it. I promise," says The Berserker Blothar.

'The Blood of Gods' chronicles the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that oppose them. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of humanity from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry!




UK rock trio Kill The Ideal have independently released their six-track self-titled EP and revealed the lyric video for the upcoming single 'Crazy'.

Frontman Ash Wilson explains, "This EP started off as a single puzzle piece, but when it was finished, the final segment signed off something magical that echoes in our hearts! It's an indecisive, dangerous slice of reality, which we all face every day."

Recorded and produced with Lower Than Atlantis' guitarist Ben Sansom at Titan Studios in Watford, the Lincoln trio have developed a momentous sound. "It was refreshing to work on this with Ben. Being in that environment really inspired us to push our boundaries on this."




Symphonic Metallers Amberian Dawn have unveiled another captivating fantasy story with 'I'm The One', a brand new track from forthcoming album 'Darkness of Eternity', out November 10th via Napalm Records.

Mastermind Tuomas Seppälä gives a deeper insight to the song: "I'm The One was one of the latest compositions for new album. After writing a couple of softer songs in fall 2016 I got a new "heavy wave" and probably 3 latest songs I wrote were quite heavy.

The song is very hectic and pushes forward like a train. There's no solo part on this song (a solo would have been quite obvious call) Instead of that I wrote an instrumental part and an extra vocal part. Last vocal part's melody and chord pattern supporting it consists of just one really long phrase... this kind of long phrasing was typical in many classical compositions. I still haven't got rid of my roots in classical music."




Khram is the Russian word for temple – and the title of Arkona's hotly anticipated, eighth studio album, set to be released on January 19th 2018 via Napalm Records. The artwork has been revealed and the band will be heavily touring in early 2018.

A Khram is a temple shrouded in natural mysticism slumbering behind nocturnal treetops, yet open to everyone. The sincerity and depth that binds all five band members together resonates in the sumptuously dark cover artwork and leading lady Masha`s lyrics that are written in her own blood - which is also part of the artwork.

Arkona may have used sound samples in their early days, but nowadays cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing are recorded live meticulously and flow naturally into the band's harsh Metal tunes.
