"Top 10 Unsigned Bands to Watch in 2006"

THEIR SOUND: Panic! At The Disco may be Las Vegas' most visible rock export, but this four-year-old power-pop powerhouse, whose tunes bring to mind Green Day storming a Cheap Trick gig, aren't far behind. "We like to call ourselves 'death pop,'" says The UTMoST's bassist, Sprinkle. "We deliver pop hooks with punk-rock energy, and then throw in some tasteful death-metal growls for good measure. Wait - did I just call death-metal growls 'tasteful?' Anyway, there are too many bands out there just standing on a stage and boring the piss out of me. Where's the pyro? Where's the crowd participation? Where's the goddamn rock show? We're bringing all that back, and we're doing it for the kids."

THEIR SCENE: "From a fan-support standpoint, Vegtas is a great frickin' city," says Sprinkle. "However, in Vegas, vice rules: The amount of money a businessman can make from running an all-ages venue pales in comparison to what he can make in an alcohol-and-gaming establishment, so you see a lot of venues open and then close down pretty quickly." Adds drummer DJ Corky Gainsford, "At one point, we were renting out an old community theater to pu on our own shows. Recently, though, some great new venues - like The Alley, The Rock n' Java, and the Clubhouse - have started to create an all-ages scene here."

THEIR PLANS: Says Gainsford, "As 2006 progresses, we're looking to take The UTMoST out on the road even more; definitely doing tours throughout the West Coast and Southwest, and possibly doing an East Coast tour during spring break to see the fans we've made out there." Though he shares his bandmates' enthusiasm, singer/guitarist Donato Faoro has simpler needs for the New Year: "My goal is to fit into my swim trunks from high school," he says. "I guess I could do that on the road." - Alternative Press Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


A long time ago there were many people. Then as time went on this number began to grow. Soon enough the number of people became too large and something needed to be done. The Almighty Lord decided to create a band with the sole purpose of destroying all inferior bands.

Since 666 BC, The UTMoST has been slaughtering bands big and small in order to control the world's growing population. "There are starving people in China"...time for The UTMoST to kick some ass. "My mom has to work three jobs to support me"...that's UTMoST time brother.

So be very aware, and watch your backside. The UTMoST are coming to a town near you...via the internet. Via song streaming. Via vocals, guitar, bass, and drums. Viva Las Vegas!
