The story of GWAR is carved across the history of this barren and hopeless planet, but GWAR themselves are not of this world… their story begins in the deepest reaches of outer space. Long ago, the beings who would become the rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe. For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master. But one by one, each future member of the band earned a glaring reputation for being an intergalactic fuck-up.
The Blood of Gods is the first GWAR album without the band’s fallen leader, Oderus Urungus. The title of the album refers to the loss of Oderus and the struggles and triumphs that produced the new sound of the band. Born of adversity, The Blood of Gods is a sonic scar… a question asked and answered… Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing can. GWAR LIVES MOTHERFUCKERS!
Hi, I’m Nikki Knight from Spewline Productions reporting for Capital Chaos TV. I wanna thank you Beefcake the Mighty for your time out of tour busy schedule of killing and defiling villagers to answer a few Questions. So this is your first album without Oderus did you take any inspiration from him to write any of the songs?? Any communication with the otherside?
Beefcake: This is our first album without Oderus at the Helm. We miss him very much, and he will always have an influence on us. In fact I was under the influence for the entire recording process.
You were recently on Warped Tour were you at all upset you weren’t the most offensive band due to the Dickie’s big kicked off the tour?
Beefcake: No. the Dickies aren’t offensive at all. Actually, the most offensive band on Warped Tour turns out to be Hawthorne Heights! I was completely offended that they make sad children listen to that stuff! Eww!
Gwar have killed and slain many assholes throughout your time here on this shitty planet. Who would you kill next and how??
Beefcake: The next thing I plan on killing is the Shoney’s Buffet down on Route 5. Then I would probably Kill Jennifer Love Hewitt. I would Vajazzle her to death.
Who in Gwar is the biggest diva? It has to be someone right?
Beefcake: Blóthar is definitely the biggest Diva. It turns out he accidentally ate Donna Summers and has been that way ever since.
In a time where everyone is far too sensitive and are easy to offend how do you guys keep yourselves able to do what you do? Does it make it easier for you or worse?
Beefcake: Well, I would disagree. It seems like everyone is WAY LESS sensitive now. I mean, yeah, people bicker and argue over dumb shit on the internet and threaten to kill each other, but they do that while jacking off to midget donkey fisting while also watching snuff films on the nightly news. GWAR is having a hard time offending anyone now a days and it makes me sad 😦
Any advice for the little monsters and mutants wanting to do what you guys do?
Beefcake: Don’t bother. You can never be a living space god, unless you are synthetically engineered for it. The best you can do is take lots of drugs like us.
So you are going to have a show in Sacramento on Nov 19th for those in Sacramento who may have never been to a Gwar concert what do they have in store for them?
Beefcake: Death. I think for this show, I’m gonna take a giant blood piss in the Sacramento River until it completely overwhelms your outdated Central Vally levees and watch your pitiful city float away down to the bay.
Thank you so very much for this opportunity to talk with you. I hope you guys have a good time in my hometown Sacramento and you flood the town with bodily fluids like a Kardashian with daddy issues like Oderus would want you to do.
