VIDEO OF THE WEEK – TROLLFEST

Well, we may be only a few weeks into 2021 but already it is looking as if it as going be as much of a shitstorm of a year, if not more so, than its predecessor, with the Government apparently losing the war with the pan(dem)ic and fighting back with renewed, and even more stringent, lockdowns in place the length and breadth of the Über Kingdom (and beyond). But, with seemingly no light at the end of the tunnel, despite the promises of vaccines offering some form of over-vaunted “miracle cure”, at least 2021 is sharing something more positive in common with 2020, in that it already has produced some terrific new music, with the promise of plenty more to come, if the if the inbox here at ÜRHQ is anything to go by…

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – TV PRIEST

There’s a saying about “new year, new start”. Well, it be only at the end of its first week, but to date 2021 certainly has not delivered the latter, with renewed, and even more stringent, lockdowns in place the length and breadth of the Über Kingdom (and beyond), with seemingly no light at the end of the tunnel, despite the promises of vaccines offering some form of over-vaunted “miracle cure”. But, at least we still have music… at least for the meantime…

VIDEO OF THE YEAR

There is no doubt it, but 2020 has been a truly traumatic year for the rock ‘n’ roll Überverse, with live shows all but non-existent in the vast majority of places, and income streams completely decimated for many of those involved in the music business. The latter is a feeling we know all too well here at ÜRHQ, as we ourselves have not earned a penny since the Northern Ireland entertainments industry went into lockdown on 14 March. However, one thing that has shown through is the enormous creativity of many, many hundreds of artists, and equal numbers of those working behind the scenes, in adapting to the changed global landscape – one which, in many cases, may indeed be changed forever: streamed shows, whether live or pre-recorded, have virtually (sic) become the norm, and no doubt will remain so, especially here in the Über Kingdom, for quite some time to come…

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – SO LONG UNTIL THE SÉANCE

It’s hard to believe that it’s been seven whole days since we last awarded our coveted ‘Video Of The Week’ title, and a lot has happened in the Überverse, with many parts of the Über Kingdom once again being lockdown with the most severe of restrictions and everything that these bring with them, including yet more cancelled live shows (including livestreams) and Christmas arguably ruined for many people.

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.

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…
