But it is, and so no better time than to cast a backward glance and share their memories of another day of on stage action.

That was just the scenario our resident DJ faced when he saw the bill for Sniff the Riff Vol.1. Having experienced far too many instances of promises not being delivered upon, or the dreaded clashes that happen that a lot of festivals that the worry is always there that he’ll miss something important. Nevertheless, he used more of his frequent traveller miles and ventured forth, hoping that, for [read on]

Hard Rock Hell XI – Pwllheli, Hafan y Môr Holiday Camp – 10 November 2017http://www.uberrock.co.uk/images/bands_2017/H/Hard_Rock_Hell/YandT_-_HRH.jpg It was the morning after the night before, but there was barely time to recover from the first evening’s storming performances, especially by Dee Snider, before the UR team and the rest of the assembled HRH horde stormed straight back into the heart of the rock ‘n’ roll action… It turned out to be an eventful day, where the music wasn’t always to the forefront of our thoughts, as you can find out by clicking the link that allows you to do exactly what it [read on]

Hard Rock Hell XI – Pwllheli, Hafan y Môr Holiday Camp – 9 November 2017http://www.uberrock.co.uk/images/bands_2017/D/Dee_Snider_-_HRH.jpg As the Hard Rock Hell franchise plants its feet very firmly in its second generation of operation, it is extremely clear that its popularity has not in any waned – in fact, if anything it continues to grow, which brings in itself problems. With this year’s attendance figures breaking all previous records, the main arena, as the weekend progressed, suffered severe problems with over-crowding… but, we’ll address that issue in due course. In the meantime, Monk and DQ look back [read on]

Paradise Lost/Pallbearer/Sinistro – London, Electric Ballroom – 3 November 2017http://www.uberrock.co.uk/images/bands_2017/P/Paradise_Lost_tour_poster.jpg Immediately prior to their headlining appearance at the annual Damnation Festival, British doom maestros Paradise Lost played a special one-off show in the darkest heart of Camden Town. So special, in fact, that Sheila Hamilton temporarily gave up organizing Über Rock’s hectic gig calendar to actually get in on the reviewing game.

Y&T/Stormzone – Belfast, Limelight 1 – 8 November 2017http://www.uberrock.co.uk/images/bands_2017/Y/YT/YandT_Belfast.jpg Y&T’s end of year UK tours have become something of a ritual. This year, their annual visit included a return to the Hard Rock Hall festival: but, two days beforehand, they made an overdue visit to one city, and one venue, which has really taken the band to their buxom… and URHQ’s management team were down the front, soaking up the sweat before boarding an early morning flight to the wilds of the Welsh coast to do it all over again: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Our resident shredder was front and centre and brings us this inside [read on]

DOUCHE GONE WILD Sebastian Bach on Skid Row: “How many singers have they had now? Seven?”   WACO, Texas — Whacko does Jacko in Waco! The city’s name is fitting and what a night it was in the heart of the Lone Star State for a heavy metal concert that even included some Michael Jackson. It’s been a while since we’ve posted much about Sebastian Bach but a recent comment made by the singer has opened up the door. Bach is on tour with his solo band and tearing up stages around [read on]
