Edition sixty eight of Cum On Feel The Newz.

The town of Oymyakon in Siberia stakes a claim to be the world's coldest inhabited town, once recording a temperature of minus 68 degrees Celsius. Anyone who's spent the night on Amersham railway station having missed the last train home may have experienced something similar.

Let's do this...

General Cluster
Lauren Lakis
Silenmara
Black Country Communion
Lord Of The Lost
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Lilith & The Night
Angel Nation
Booze & Glory
Avenged Sevenfold

Testament

 

Following the release of their latest studio album 'BCCIV', Black Country Communion released the music video for their third single 'The Last Song For My Resting Place'. The song is inspired by Wallace Hartley, the violinist and band leader on the Titanic.

Says Joe Bonamassa, "The fact that he played everyone off the ship to the detriment of himself brings you back to a more selfless time in our history. I don't believe the conditions are around in 2017 for something or someone like that to step forward and be recognized."

The band will play two exclusive European shows in the UK at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Tuesday 2nd January and at the London Hammersmith Apollo on Thursday 4th January.




Don Broco have released their brand new single 'T-Shirt Song', the latest to be taken from their forthcoming album 'Technology', due for release on February 2nd through SharpTone Records.

'T-Shirt Song' is a colossal rock anthem from the Bedford four-piece, and a deeply personal song for frontman Rob Damiani. Inspired by relationships ending, it also addresses an emotional time for the singer and how he overcame his depression.

Regarding the single Rob says, "It's one of the most emotional songs on the record, inspired by a close friend who had just been through a dark break-up. While writing the song it was also a difficult time for me emotionally, and one night I found myself in a club where the DJ was playing the Baywatch theme tune.

"Anyone who's been to a cheesy club night will know this is the moment everyone takes off their T-shirt and swings it round their head. I didn't really feel like it, but I joined in and as stupid as it sounds it really made me feel better. That was the start of the process by which I came to realize there was light at the end of the tunnel. This song is about going through hell and coming out the other side stronger for it."




On November 24th Lilith and the Knight release their new single, the powerful and infectious 'Rain Dance'.

Rain Dance is the first song written that "really represents" the band with socially conscious lyrics and taut songwriting. "The song is about the current state of the world we live in and the plight of those suffering because of it. It's either a hopeful prayer that we can wash away the pain, or a hopeless lament at the unalterable state of the world – we'll let you decide."

"We want to push the boundaries of heavy music and bring it back into the mainstream and we truly believe we can make it happen - Or we'll die trying!" Exciting, Sexy and Loud! Lilith and the Knight strikes another ferocious blow for heavy music, with Rain Dance finding them on unassailable form.




The female-fronted melodic Metal band Angel Nation will release their new album 'Aeon' on October 27th via Inner Wound Recordings, with 'Wonder Who You Are', the third single from the album is available now.

Founded by the classically trained Finnish singer Elina Siirala who moved to London in 2008 and fell in love with the power of rock and Metal, this album continues the musical diversity that Elina likes to express in her songwriting.

The unique blend of retro and modern sounds is developed even further. The power of Metal and rock combined with Elina's ethereal yet strong and emotional vocals create the perfect platform for stories of both earthly and otherworldly she likes to create with her lyrics.




Booze & Glory the street-punk brigade have released 'Back On Track', another strong video-song from their critically acclaimed 'Chapter IV' album.

Shot in London by the band's own Frank Pellegrino (with some assistance), it features actress Peyvand Sadeghia it's another heartfelt Booze & Glory song up there with 'Carry On', 'Simple' and 'Blood From a Stone'.

The band are heading out touring in France, Poland and Germany. Then in December a string of big shows supporting The Broilers on their German tour, and a one off show visit to in Borneo, Indonesia is planned towards the end of the year.




Rising British Metalcore group Death Blooms reveal their new music video 'Last Ones' ahead of the UK Tour with Insane Clown Posse and Mushroomhead this month.

As supporters of the charity MIND, the new music video strongly voices Death Blooms' concern that communities need to pull together and be more understanding of mental health issues in our society, especially as technology rapidly advances.

"'Last Ones' was shot by a good friend of ours called Bobby Pook and features myself and one of my best friends, Holly Fred", explains Death Blooms vocalist Paul Barrow. "The video idea seemed to go hand in hand with the theme of the song and it came together really quickly. We wanted to give the feeling of people being brought together by things they didn't ever consider.

In this case, it was the feeling of being chased by the unexpected and unexplained. I'm really pleased with how it all ended up and I think it conveyed the exact message that it needed to. Bobby and Holly absolutely nailed it! Thanks, guys!"




Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have revealed their first video for single 'Little Thing Gone Wild', a visceral piece directed by Brian T Lauzon.

The band recently announced their forthcoming album 'Wrong Creatures', produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire), out on January 12th, 2018.

The California-based band have been crafting perfectly honed, bluesy, psychedelic garage-rock since 1998 and return with their 7th studio album.Catch them on their current European tour or in North America in January.




Avenged Sevenfold guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance are spotlighted in the new episode of "String Theory," Ernie Ball's popular web series exploring the sonic origins of music's most innovative players. The video sees the duo talking about their style of play, influences and approach to songwriting

They also recently discussed new album 'The Stage' during "An Evening with Avenged Sevenfold", a special event held at The Grammy Museum in downtown LA, hosted by Los Angeles Times Pop Music Critic Mikael Wood.

A new deluxe version of the album arrives in December and features 7 additional studio songs and four unreleased live tracks recorded during the band's recent shows at The O2 arena in London. Among the 7 bonus tracks is the band's stunning cover of the Pink Floyd classic, "Wish You Were Here'.




With their 'Swan Songs' series, dark rockers Lord Of The Lost showcase their ability to create fascinatingly heavy classical music. Released on October 6th 2017 with Napalm Records, this is the second time the Hamburg-based band have conjured their music with an ensemble album in such grandiose style.

The band have now unveiled a brand new and very touching lyric video for the track 'My Better Me'. Says vocalist Chris Harms:

"My better me would say that 'My Better Me' is a song about hope and about trying to change for the better. But in the end it's only a mirror of what we are and we might not like what we see when looking at our reflection. So this most personal of all the albums tracks eventually turns out to be a song not only about me but about each one of us."




Pirate Metal band Rumahoy's music mixes bustling Pagan Metal-riffing mixed with exotic ancient instrumentation, producing melodies that run like the swell of stormy seas. Make sure to beware of dancing peg legs when Captain Yarrface asks for a fervent 'Forest Party', or you and your parrot might be thrown overboard...

Their first full-length studio album and Napalm Records debut 'The Triumph Of Piracy' will be released on February 9th 2018. Rumahoy will head out on a UK tour in February as support to label mates Alestorm.

Captain Yarrface states: "Ahoy landlubbers! It's time to drink some rum, fire a gun, and sail the high seas in search of pirate heritage and gold! Yarr! Join our crew, and together we'll quest for a new pirate age on our debut album The Triumph of Piracy!"

Crushing audiences across the globe with their driving force and energetic stage presence, Melbourne thrashers Mason deliver commanding performances that has taken them on tours across Australia and beyond in Asia, Europe and Canada where they have shared the stage with Harlott, Havok, Accept, Revocation, Mutank and Annihilator.

As local favourites of the Melbourne Metal scene, Mason have been selected as local direct support for Canadian Metal demigods Anvil at their show date on November 11th at The Prince Bandroom, part of the band's 40th Anniversary World Tour.

Mason unleashed their second full length 'Impervious' in October featuring nine glorious thrashing tracks mixed and mastered by Erin Hamidovic (Devin Townsend Project, Sikth, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Elm Street).




Bay Area thrash giants Testament are thrilled to announced their return to our UK and Irish shores in March/April 2018, in support of latest record 'Brotherhood Of The Snake'. They will be bringing along with them Canadian thrashers Annihilator as well as Polish Death Metal tank and label mates Vader.

Commented guitarist Eric Peterson: "I'm super excited about this tour! I can't wait! Really really looking forward to spending some quality time in the UK, Ireland and Europe and it's way too long overdue! Hails!"

The tour starts on 29th March in Bristol and takes in Manchester, Birmingham, Dublin and Glasgow, before finishing on 4th April at London's Koko.

Esteemed guitarist Tommy Emmanuel has announced his brand new duets album 'Accomplice One', which will be out January 19th via Players Club/Mascot Label Group.

The 16 track album features guests Jason Isbell, J.D. Simo, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shries & Ricky Skaggs. The album is a mix of reworked classics and new original songs from Tommy and his guest musicians.

Check out the stunning cover of the Otis Redding classic ('Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay' ft. J.D. Simo here:




Electric doom-folk artist Lauren Lakis has released her latest track 'Mourn The Dead' in advance of her debut solo album 'Ferocious', arriving in early 2018.

Lauren tells us: "Mourn The Dead was one of the last songs I wrote for the album, when I was beginning to reclaim my life post-trauma. As I was tapping into my own anger, I was thinking a lot about the systematic repression of emotions in men, and how it ends up usually only being expressed as anger. I make reference to it via the line, "All the words that we swallow, all the walls that you hit..."

"I was trying to make sense of the hole in my bedroom wall. The chorus is a bit tongue-in-cheek, thanking the person who left and caused me pain for teaching me how to grieve, before actually disappearing. I realized they were probably the greatest teacher that life had placed in front of me, and for that I had to be grateful."




Following a turbulent few months for the band, melodeath outfit Silenmara have come back fighting with a brand new music video single and details of a polished EP produced by Jamie King that promotes their fight for musical freedom.

"Lyrically, the song Visionary was written about decisions... A person can take one of two roads. One simple mistake or miscalculation could be life changing or even fatal. On the other hand one focused and calculated decision can change a persons life for the best. It's all about your mindset and your ability to make serious decisions under pressure. When you're on a "Bridge of defeat, could you stand for denial?"

"Musically we wrote this song for one specific purpose, to deliver an emotion. We wanted our people to feel the love we have for this music. It is filled with guitar melodies and odd time trickery that we have come to embrace in our writing. A very catchy guitar lick meets an aggressive vocal melody begging for guidance and hoping for forgiveness. We chose this song for its ability to find its way into your mind and stay. Our Vision of musical freedom."




Four years after the release of 'Six Pack Songs', French stoner-Metallers General Cluster have announced the upcoming release of their brand new full-length album 'Greetings From Black Mountains' out on physical/digital formats on November 4th.

The first audio from the album is available now, with the song 'Let's Go Porn'.

The album is the first full-length from the band following two EPs that made the powder speak and the hoppy moss blossom.
