gingerh1386Yeah, like this guy needs an introduction. It's October 31st, so who better to hit the final nail into the coffin of Uber Rock's 13 Days Of Halloween than the fella who wrote 'Splattermania'?!? We didn't just save this until last because we've always loved this guy's music either - Ginger Wildheart knows his horror and provides one of the finest H13 interviews of this, or any other, year.....

Peter_DolvingEx The Haunted frontman Peter Dolving always thought Joy Division were way cooler than Judas Priest and it certainly shows with 'Thieves And Liars' his first solo album.  Darrel Sutton realises the unimaginable as he takes in an album he simply can't get his head around as melodic death metal is most certainly a thing of the past in this  world of thieves and liars.

Black-Country-Communion-Afterglow-176pxEven before 'Afterglow' has hit the record store shelves we kind of know it's the end of the road for the classic rock super group known as Black Country Communion. Conflicting schedules for band members resulting in one of the quickest and most productive recording sessions know to rock-kind could only ever mean one thing for team behind the quartet's third album, an ultimatum to put up or shut up! Russ P picks up the story as he experiences the musical rush of the 'Afterglow'.

If the name Armless Alice hasn't already told you that this band is perfect for Uber Rock's 13 Days Of Halloween, then the noise that this cadre of Swedish industrial metallers summons up will confirm all of your worst fears. The band's frontman Hyde fell down behind the sofa clutching at his throat, and re-emerged with the answers to our unlucky-for-some 13 questions. They wanted a son, he gave them a nightmare.....

Dangerfieldsh13thumbThe Dangerfields? Didn't they curl up and die ages ago? What if we told you that the New Year would be bringing with it a career-spanning retrospective release from these noisy mofos? What if we told you that the band's front (and back) man, Andrew Johnston, was the latest victim of Uber Rock's 13 Days Of Halloween? A man who knows his Chain Saw from his Chainsaw? Who will survive and what will be left of them?.....

Nightmare_midnite-mixtape-massacre_86With Halloween now almost upon us, we thought that today would be the perfect time to share with you a Midnite Mixtape with a subtle twist. The twist being that this mixtape is made up of the songs that the Uber Rock writing team would least like to hear ever again and most importantly....why.  It's a musical nightmare brought to life by such rock giants as Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, Muse, Metallica and Iron Maiden plus a few lesser know bands who also just happen make our blood boil. Dare you click the link to see if one of your fave tunes is included?

deadendthumbThe Dead End Drive-In that dissects the 13 Days Of Halloween had to be showing a trashy classic, didn't it? Cue a low budget horror comedy that is as gutter-dirty as it is ridiculously funny. Rock & Roll Frankenstein is a beloved tale of death, music...and Liberace's reanimated talking green cock.....

dazmondothumbH13We got this, man! We got this by the ass! His JD & the FDC bandmates indicated that we would never get a reply if we asked Dawn of the Dead obsessive Dazmondo to partake in Uber Rock's 13 Days Of Halloween and, man, a lot of people are running...he could run... he could run, tonight....but he didn't let us down. Many have died, last week, on these streets. In the basement of this building, you will find them. I have given them the last rites. Now, you do what you will. You are stronger than us. But soon, I think they be stronger than you. When the dead walk, señores, we must stop the killing... or lose the war.....
