Über Rock Introduces… Rebel’s End

Belgian sleaze-infused hard rockers Rebel’s End are about to release their second album, ‘Sing To The Devil’, via the German-based Pure Steel imprint. The band are a new one to us here at ÜRHQ, so we thought there was no better time to catch up with them and introduce them to the wider ÜR massive, and thus Monk found himself chatting to band founder Jef Wouters…

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – IMMINENCE

As the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 18 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights grow brighter by the day, and life starts to return to some sense of normality, a healthy slew of new music, perhaps more than at any other time in ÜR’s history, continues to ping itself our way, and especially in the continuing tsunami of submissions we receive for our coveted ‘Video Of The Week’ award… Yes, as we’ve said on multiple occasions, one constant throughout the vagaries of inconsistent and often hard to stomach lockdowns is the amazing level of adaptive creativity that bands and video directors the length and breadth of the Überverse have continued to show, often in the most adverse of circumstances.

The Über Rock Singles Club – Awesome August (Volume Three)

Well, with a few exceptions, the pathway out of the dark tunnel that has been the past 18 months finally seems to be getting clearer day by day, as we slowly take those vital steps back to at least a semblance of the normality we enjoyed before the pandemic wrecked chaos on our collective and individual lives. Yes, there are still some restrictions in place in some parts of the Über Kingdom, but the signs are increasingly positive, not least in terms of the summer festival season being up-and-running again, and the light on the horizon is growing ever brighter – and it’s not just ‘cos we’re being blessed with a rare (occasionally) sunny summer!

The BIG Über Rock Interview – Tobias Rydsheim (Wormwood)

Hailing from Sweden, melodic extreme metal outfit Wormwood are on the cusp of releasing their third full length album. ‘Arkivet’ has had a slight delay to its originally scheduled release but there are currently two singles with videos available. The title track and ‘The Gentle Touch of Humanity’ have created a healthy buzz amongst the fanbase of the band. The fans are growing from far and wide drawn by the evocative melodies combined with frantic extreme metal rhythms that forms the core of Wormwood’s sound. Despite this widespread fanbase and two albums already available – ‘Ghostlands: Wounds From A Bleeding Earth’ and ‘Nattarvet’ – there are still many that are unaware of the unique and well-crafted style of the band. Phil C recently got the opportunity to chat to guitarist and one of the main driving forces of the band Tobias Rydsheim, to shed more light on the guys…

Über Rock Introduces… Afterlife

Hailing from West Palm Beach, Florida, new kids on the nu-metal block Afterlife are about to share some of the sunshine state’s warmth with their new album, ‘Part Of Me’, which is being released by Hopeless Records – yes, we know, the label is better known for its pop punk output, but that doesn’t mean they can’t push the boundaries a little bit – next weekend.
