Pōneke sludge metal heroes Beastwars have treated us all to an early Christmas gift with their latest release Cold Wind / When I'm King, the last hip-hip-hooray in what has been a massive year of tenth anniversary celebrations of their 2011 self-titled debut album. Ahead of packing out shows on their nationwide anniversary tour earlier this year the band dropped B-side 'When I'm King', a long lost track from the days of recording their debut, dusted off and shared new to eager fans. A-side 'Cold Wind' is also what the band call a "brand new / old song", delivering soul stirring guitar solos and fiery vocals from Beastwars frontman Matt Hyde. Maybe not exactly what you'd call a Christmas carol, 'Cold Wind' is still packed with spirit and lyrics about generosity and charity — if you squint your ears. Take a listen below, behold the jaw-dropping cover art from Nick Keller, and snap up one of a limited run of 7" while you're at it...

Beastwars' 'Cold Wind / When I'm King' is out now via streaming services and on 7" vinyl.
