16th June 2017



Edition fifty one of Cum On Feel The Newz.

Exactly 51 years ago today, 16th June 1966, The Beatles made their only live (in person that is, the track was mimed) studio appearance on Top Of The Pops, performing 'Paperback Writer'. Feels like yesterday. No hang on, that was a different single.

Let's do this...

King King
Killing Volts
Demon Eye
5 Star Grave
Cradle Of Filth
Air Drawn Dagger
Drown This City King Leviathan
Triggerfinger
Kreator
Robin Trower
Ritual Boogie
S-Tool
Emmure
SL Theory
Alazka

 

"This video is a tribute to eighties slasher movie culture. We have kept this very simple and the idea is, to take you back on a trip to the eighties to celebrate the re-release of our first four albums. Enjoy!"; says Kreator's Mille Petrozza

Kreator's second album 'Pleasure To Kill' is still revered as a benchmark album in thrash Metal circles. Often uttered in the same breath as such masterpieces as 'Master Of Puppets' and 'Reign In Blood', it firmly put German thrash on the map and has rippled out its influence over the past four decades to many thrash and death Metal contemporaries.

Released on November 1st 1986 on the, then fledgling Noise records it never had a promo video made for it so the band would have to wait a couple of years before their debut video was shot in form of the track 'Betrayer'.

Now, some 31 years later Kreator are proud to premiere this video for the title track of this seminal album. Working with classic 80s era footage of the band in both the studio and live environment, with an added narrative full of sadistic intent - think 'Stranger Things' meets Wes Craven in a machete fight with Jason Vorhees. This video goes for the throat and leaves you in a pool of blood. Pleasure to kill!




Robin Trower is back with perhaps his best solo album since he was in his 40s. Considering Robin is 72, that's saying a lot - It is not that Trower's recent efforts are not worthy, but rather that his latest release 'Time and Emotion' is so damn good. "I can honestly say I don't know when I have been happier with an album," Trower remarks. "I feel 'Time and Emotion' contains some of my very best work."

Following the Friday 4th August UK release of the album, Robin will perform his only concert in the UK this year at London's Islington Assembly Hall on Wednesday 29th November.

Trower's smooth-as-butter guitar licks, screaming solos and ethereal bluesy vocals keep the listener hooked. Robin has a vibe, a voice and a presence on his instrument that transcends time and space. He plays from the soul and he is as intoxicated from the music he creates as his listeners.

UK's legendary extreme Metal icons Cradle Of Filth have announced the details for the band's upcoming 12th full-length album.

'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay' will be released on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast. You can view the stunning cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš below. Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record's artwork, photography and videography – best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths. He has been proclaimed as a "sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism".

The infamous Dani Filth said: "The album is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that. 'Cryptoriana' implies the Victorian's infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish. And the subtitle 'The Seductiveness Of Decay' further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation."

The first single off 'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay' will be released on July 5th, the same day that the album pre-order will become available, and a full-scale tour of UK and Ireland will take place in the autumn.

King King are pleased to announce their biggest UK tour to date. The band will play a series of high profile concerts, including London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on Wednesday 18th October. The tour supports the release of King King's eagerly anticipated fourth studio album "Exile & Grace", released on Friday 6th October.

Recorded at Superfly Studios, the quartet's first album of new material since 2015's multi-award winning 'Reaching For The Light' features the upcoming single '(She Don't) Give Me No Lovin'', mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy) and released on Friday 23rd June.

Says King King's frontman and guitarist, Alan Nimmo, "Exile & Grace definitely has a rockier feel and sound to it. We are following our influences from the Classic Rock genre, Bad Company, Whitesnake and Thunder. We really set out to challenge ourselves with this album. We've stepped up the quality of songwriting and pushed ourselves physically in both performance and delivery!"




Ville Laihiala, best known for his work with Finnish metal elite acts such Sentenced and Poisonblack, unveils a new song 'Hammering' with band S-Tool. available to listen at digital streaming services. 'Hammering' is the third reveal of the upcoming album, which is being recorded at the moment, to be released this autumn via Playground Music Scandinavia.

S-Tool formed in 2015 and has released two singles that attracted quite an interest in the rock and Metal world and radio stations. Compared to Laihiala's previous projects, S-Tool is more straight-forward and more Metal, but you can surely recognize Laihiala's signature writing style by the melodies.

The band consists of Ville Laihiala, guitarist Sami Leppikangas and bass player Kimmo Hiltunen (Lullacry), and drummer Aksu Hanttu (Entwine). "The song kinda reflects how this modern world is affecting us and leading us towards destruction; it's very honest, like the 'voice of human's conscience'", says Ville.


A few days after the official release of debut EP 'Why Should I Say Yes' released for LP & Digital on Bandcamp, Swiss power rock outfit Killing Volts just unleased a new official music video for the song 'Never Insecure' on YouTube.

Born in 2013 around the area of Geneva by Tania Silverstein (ex-Solartones) and Al Castro (The Black Widow's Project) with Onne and Matt Sink, Killing Volts played their first gigs with the aim to keep their rock'n'roll and punk background live with the influence of soul/blues/rock voices such as Aretha Franklin, Alison Mosshart, Beth Ditto or Skin.

Some gigs later, Onne left the band and was replaced by Antoine Superflej (Cold Bath) while the band wrote collections of songs. Now that their debut EP was unleashed in Spring 2017, work begins on the first full-length album, to be released in 2018.




Unstoppable alternative crew Air Drawn Dagger have just released their spanking new single, 'Gods VS Peasants', as a Free Download, via Alya Records.

Sparking glowing comparisons to everyone from Foo Fighters and Paramore to Donnas, Air Drawn Dagger hit you with engaging vocals, powerful guitars, and earnest emotion. Formed in 2014, and featuring the impressive collective talents of Maisie Manterfield (vocals), Sam Wagner (lead guitar), Lewis Budden (bass) and Ross Dore (drums), Air Drawn Dagger are already making waves throughout the scene and are picking up a plethora of new fans on a daily basis.

The band's current EP, 'Ours For The Taking, Theirs For The Breaking', racked up strong support from BBC Introducing and throughout the underground. The quartet followed the release with their video single, 'The Banshee', which was also greatly lauded by many.

The follow-up to 2012's 'Drugstore Hell' has been produced by NeroArgento at AExeron Studios and has been described as a natural evolution of the band's sound, featuring an hardcore / horror punk-influenced Metal assault supported by a wide range of vocals and the usual light-hearted horror inspired imagery, directly derived from 80's Metal/shock rock golden days.




Belgian rock trio Triggerfinger have just announced that they'll be returning to the UK in October. The tour will be in support of their upcoming album 'Colossus', due for release on August 25th via Mascot Records, with the first single 'Flesh Tight' out now.

The huge track is out now in online outlets and is the first new music since their debut EP 'False Idols' dropped in mid-2016.

Drown This City's are embarking on a headline tour alongside Tasmania's Save the Clock Tower, with six Australian dates in July.




Greek Progressive sensation SL Theory have released a new video taken from their upcoming new live album, scheduled t be released later in 2017.

'Time Won't Matter Anymore' was filmed and recorded live in Athens, Greece in March 2017 during the 'Progressively Dark' concert for electric band and string orchestra and is the follow up to 'Afterlife' released earlier in April, 2017. Both videos were recorded on the spot with no overdubs used, in order to preserve the exact performance feeling, precisely as it was on the night of the show.

SL Theory are in the process of preparing their official 'Live in Athens' CD/DVD release and they are in the studio recording their new, yet untitled, album, details on which will be revealed later on in 2017. Meanwhile, they have announced their participation and performance at the highly popular Chania Rock Festivalin Chania, Crete on June the 30th along such names as Septic Flesh and the mighty Blind Guardian, with more dates to follow in the fall of 2017.

Bassist Julian Englisch stated: "We're more than excited to finally present you our new album 'Phoenix' on this tour and we're really looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and hopefully some new ones! We're also very happy to bring the guys in Imminence and Across The Atlantic with us, two very talented, energetic bands! We can't wait to get this going and show you, what we've been working on for so long!"




King Leviathan, hailing from Brighton UK have gathered quite the following since releasing their critically acclaimed 2015 E.P 'The Shrine', spreading their "Black Mass" to Bloodstock Open Air and several iterations of Mammothfest as well as touring the UK with the likes of Wretched Soul, Abhorrent Decimation and Meta-Stasis.

The south coast act have become known for their combination of extreme thrash and groove Metal vibes with hints of black Metal, providing whirlwinds of guitar shreds. On top of that Adam Sedgwick's vocal capability has vastly improved since 'The Shrine', he makes switching from a power singing voice to furiously aggressive shouts seem effortless.

Now, the blackened thrash four-piece have just announced details for their eagerly awaited debut album, 'Paean Heretica', which has been two years in the making. It is King Leviathan's darkest and heaviest work to date, encompassing themes of loss, abandonment, blind faith and what comes after death.

It is a nine track, 45 minute collection of 'psalms' which were recorded and mixed by Paul 'Win' Winstanley at Brighton Electric Studios, mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Revocation, Motorhead, Baroness) and with art by Alex Norman (Guns 'n' Roses, Opeth, Katatonia, Sylosis).




A few weeks after the official release, Psychedelic/acid-rock power-trio from Switzerland, Ritual Boogie have shared the debut full-length album 'Middle Age Dust' for entire streaming on YouTube.

The album is still available for physical and digital release through Urgence Disk Records.

Founded on the ashes of Azazelblues Earthworms (Urgence Disks / Irascible) around Lausanne city in September 2014, Ritual Boogie are a Swiss power trio inspired by psychedelia-tinged rock, post-punk and blues forms under the leadership of Stephen Garey. Somewhere between acid-rock, alternative and psychedelic rock called "Underground Ritual Rock", the band recorded five songs in March 2015 and were unveiled to the public in April of the same year.
