UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS (Mind Control) LP/CD

Jun/05/2013

For me, it is a mystery why this band is so well received and why people pay a lot of money for their very early releases. I had hoped to find an answer while listening to 'Mind Control', but I did not succeed...

UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS (Blood Lust) LP/CD

Mar/10/2013

Unfortunately I didn't found many infos about UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS on the Rise Above promo for their album 'Blood Lust'. So I’ll have to let their music speak for them...

USING BRIDGE (And I Will Be Heard) CD

Aug/16/2012

Released in 2012 by Go Down Records, 'And I Will Be Heard' is the third album of Italy's USING BRIDGE. I do not know their previous recordings, but the new full-length is a quite nice albeit unspectacular ride...

UGH! (Waste) LP/CD

Aug/05/2012

UGH! from Munich has been given the tag "Motor Voodoo Rock" by their Elektrohasch Label. This covers my listening impression pretty good...

UFO (The Decca Years: Best of 1970 - 1973) 2CD

Jul/02/2012

I've always been a big fan of early UFO. The first two records as well as the live album are among the best stuff that came from England in the very early 1970's...

UNION OF SLEEP (Death In The Place Of Rebirth) LP

Jan/12/2011

Already the debut album from UNION OF SLEEP impressed me, but with 'Death In The Place Of Rebirth' this band has released their strongest effort to date. Here we have a heavy slab of dirty, hard pounding rock that beats into your head like a sledgehammer...

UNDER THE SUN (Man Of Sorrow) CD

Dec/22/2010

Believe me, I miss Penance. For me personally, they are on a par with bands as, for example, Saint Vitus or Pentagram and it was amazing to observe their musical development from the early days to the last album 'Spiritualnatural'...

UNORTHODOX (Live At Krug's Place) DVD

Sep/03/2010

Actually, I had hoped that Maryland's UNORTHODOX would return to Europe after fifteen years. Their latest album 'Awaken' was reason enough, because it displayed that they have not lost any of their force today and it would've been a pure pleasure to see them on stage again...

UNION OF SLEEP (s/t) LP

Jul/28/2010

Germany's UNION OF SLEEP has delivered one of the most promising debuts in 2009. Unimpressed by current trends, their first record is a filthy, dirt-encrusted, hard-rockin' bastard that is not easy to pigeonhole...

UFO GESTAPO (s/t) MCD

Mar/01/2009

Outside it's getting spring but the French wrecking crew UFO GESTAPO brings back a filthy, rainy day in November with their debut EP that has been released through Calculon Records in 2008. Here's no room left for any life-affirming principles, and song titles like 'Fear Weed', 'Peace Crap' or 'Commander Mindfuck' support my impression...
