ABmix86We can't think of a better band to feature in Uber Rock's Midnite Mixtape Massacre than those pesky Autopsy Boys! Their new album, 'Return Of The Acid Casualty Auto Humans', featured legendary scream queen, Debbie Rochon, so a thirteen-track mixtape would, surely, be unlucky for everyone except you clued-in readers. The band's Lee Brunskjill wiped the gore off a C90 and pressed record.....

POF RefilsWith most of URHQ at Download this weekend we thought we’d run something a little different, something a little less metal, yet something still more intense than 95% of the bands playing said festival. Ladies and gentlemen of the Überverse we give you Pound Of Flesh and their twisted yet sublime thirteen track Midnite Mixtape. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

BTM CD‘Back To Momo’, the fourth album from Californian glamsters Blacklist Union left an indelible mark on URHQ when it was released last year. So when ‘Union frontman Tony West contacted us recently regarding the band’s ‘Evil Eye’ video we thought it the ideal opportunity to also ask him to select the thirteen songs that helped shape the man he is today. Grunge, yacht rock, metal and hardcore crossover are just some of the genres he chooses in yet another fantastic Midnite Mixtape Massacre.

The Razed ThmbSwedish rockers The Razed call their music “GRUNGEADELIC SPACEPUNK”, which is most certainly a new genre of music on us.

taylormix86Purple are probably the coolest band to hail from the small town of Beaumont, Texas. While their debut album was an ear bomb of infectious punk pop done just right, the sophomore album is a modern slice of sexy, alt. rock with a slick production and more influences than you can shake a stick at. Uber Rock caught up with guitarist/vocalist Taylor Busby to find out about those influences and discover why you should hit the parking lot and ride the 'Mini Van' with the Texas trio.

Sunflowerd Dead AlbumHailing from Long Beach California, Sunflower Dead specialise in rock with a combination of heavy riffs and infectious hooks that are both melodic and hard-hitting. Their new album ‘It's Time To Get Weird’ is what their PR team call “a healthy dose of intense rock energy.” So we thought what better way to introduce the band to readers of Uber Rock than by asking their singer Michael Del Pizzo to pull together the 13 songs that mean most to him, and in the process give us his ultimate Midnite Mixtape selection.
