VIDEO OF THE WEEK – STAN BUSH

It’s hard to believe that it’s been seven whole days since we last awarded our coveted ‘Video Of The Week’ title, and, despite the ongoing, and some cases renewed, lockdowns in many parts of the Überverse, we are still receiving a healthy bundle of submissions for our coveted ‘Video Of The Week’ title. Many of them are produced against the background of continuing quarantine conditions in some countries, while others reflect artists being able to return and flex their creative muscles once again.

The Über Rock Singles Club – November’s New Sounds (Part Two)

It’s hard to believe it’s been a fortnight since the Singles Club opened its virtual doors and we fired up the death decks with a selection of the finest single-track releases to have come our way in recent weeks. Yet, here we are again with another bumper pick of the crop, with just shy of two dozen tracks for your aural and visual delectation, whittled down from the 300+ submissions which have come our way over the past 14 days or so, and once again hopefully containing something to tickle almost everyone’s musical taste buds as we traverse multiple subgenres of the glorious artform we like to refer to as rock ‘n’f’n’ roll…

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – RISE TWAIN

Many of them are produced against the background of continuing quarantine conditions in some countries, while others reflect artists being able to return and flex their creative muscles once again. After careful consideration of the 100-plus submissions we once again received this week – and, yes, we did watch them all – our winning selection is something different from what you might expect…

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – HELLOWEEN HAVOK

It’s our favourite time of the year here at ÜRHQ – Halloween weekend! Yes, we know All Hallow’s Eve itself was yesterday, but in true pagan tradition we carry on proceedings until the veil between the worlds closes once again at the end of All Souls Day – which means that, of course, we need some suitable audio and visual treats to accompany DQ’s rituals and ceremonies… And who better to provide the soundtrack to all things spooktacular than either the master of the grotesque, the one and only Rob Zombie, or the original duke of spook, Wednesday 13? Or even better – both of them? Yep, both artists delivered brand new songs, and suitably horror-filled videos, right on the cusp of the season, so we thought it only fair to include both of them in this week’s suitably themed feature…

The Über Rock Singles Club – Helloween Havok (Special Edition)

It’s may be only a week since the Singles Club opened its virtual doors and we fired up the death decks with a selection of the finest single-track releases to have come our way in recent weeks, but it’s Halloween week and our favourite time of the year here at ÜRHQ, so here we are again with a seasonal selection of spooky tunes for your aural delectation. OK, admittedly some of them do have a rather tenuous connection to this time of year but, hey, it’s the thought that counts, isn’t it?

Über Rock Introduces… Seek Harbour

While there have been many negative aspects of the ongoing lockdowns, such as the absence of live gigs for the better part of the past seven months, one up side has been being able to use the extended periods of downtime to seek out new bands and new talent. One such recent discovery to come our way earlier this month was southern English metal crüe Seek Harbour and their latest single, ‘Sleepless Water’. With the band also celebrating a new management deal, Monk took the opportunity to find out a little bit more about the four guys, their background and the challenges of getting their product out there in the midst of a pandemic…

Über Rock Introduces… Hells

Given we at Über Rock like nothing better than to try and showcase the talents of someone starting out, we are always keeping and eye and an ear open with everything we do. In this case, the big lad by the name of DJ Astrocreep met this talented young lady, Helene, in someone’s gaming stream – and on his birthday. After a brief chat, he checked out her music demos and was pleasantly surprised to find she had a single coming out a few days later. A couple of listens later, it was clear that she is a talented person and definitely deserves to have a spotlight shined upon on her, just after self-releasing her second single. So, he had no hesitation in hooking up with her and getting her to introduce herself to the wider Uberverse

The BIG Über Rock Interview – Brittney Slayes (Unleash The Archers)

Over the past decade, Canada’s Unleash The Archers have been slowly and steadily building a reputation as being one of THE rising forces of the international power metal scene, not least since the arrival of vocalist Brittney Slayes. It is a reputation that was firmly cemented by most recent album, ‘Abyss’, released this past August. There is no mistaking that it is an absolute beast of an album, and one worthy of all the positive feedback which has been fired its way. So, having spent weeks immersing myself in its utter gloriousness, Jonny B jumped at the chance to have a quick chat with Ms Slayes about the album, it’s characters and story and how both the band and the Canadian music scene have been coping with the wave of lockdowns in the wake of the continuing C-19 pandemic.
