GWAR releases video for “Viking Death Machine”

Human Scum! It is now that time of year and your Lords and Masters GWARwill soon awaken from their Antarctic slumber to devastate North America once again. The “Gore, Core, Metal and More” tour will be co-headlined by GWAR, and the mighty Hatebreed! This rolling heavy metal nightmare kicks off October 7th, following an appearance from GWAR at the Rock Allegiance Festival in Camden, NJ on October 6th. A complete list of all dates can be found below.

Before the tour begins, GWAR is pleased as a bowl of bloody punch to share with you the new video for their epic song “Viking Death Machine,” taken from their latest opus, 2017’s The Blood of Gods, a masterpiece of obscenity chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. The video was created by Makinita Silva, an Ecuadorian masked Luchador who is also an independent 2-D animator.

Watch the video below.

Of the video, Blothar has the following to say: “Humans, are you ready to ride the ‘Viking Death Machine’? Our latest video is a faithful animated schlockumentary depicting my harrowing, blood-drenched defeat of the Load Warriors and the other denizens of Saturday morning raceway hijinks, including all of my fellow bandmates in GWAR. I am delighted to take my rightful place as the King of Cartoon Violence, and champion of the first annual Suck-It-Up-Butter Cup! Watch the video now! It’ll make you shit.”

PUSTULUS MAXIMUS OF GWAR VIDEO INTERVIEW, NOVEMBER 2017

In the video below, Pustulus Maximus of Gwar, discusses killing the Warped Tour, killing humans, eating pussy and more with Iron Serbian of Capital Chaos TV @ Ace of Spades in Sacramento, California.

In further news, Gwar, are returning to conquer and destroy Australia in APRIL 2018!
“The Blood of Gods Tour” continues on into Australia, as your masters and supreme overlords take their one of a kind carnival of blood-drenched death and destruction Down Under. The last time GWAR visited Australia in 2014, they upset the Australian public with the controversial and media-hyped beheading of an effigy of then-Prime Minister, Tony Abbott. The body count will be even higher when GWAR returns to Australia in April of 2018 for more heavy metal carnage. Mark your calendars or leave the country.

Blothar the Berskerer had this to say about the upcoming bloodbath: “People of Australia, koala bears, kangaroos, crocodiles, wallabies…lend me your ears…and your skulls, and all of your internal organs…GWAR is coming to turn the Land of Dreams into your worst nightmare. Fire up the barby, we are going to eat Australia!
As for the Adelaide scum and your worthless existence, the so-called “Rock Capital of Australia”… is that crack rock? We shall turn the Great Australian Bight into our Great Australian BITE as our parting gift to Australia.”
GWAR are riding the wave of worldwide dominance with their new record The Blood of Gods, released by Metal Blade Records in October 2017. The new record, and the spectacular tour to support it, have been praised by fans and media alike as triumphs of unimaginable genius.

AN EVENING WITH GWAR IN SACRAMENTO – LIVE PHOTO REVIEW

Scumdogs of the universe and lords of chaos Gwar, attacked the stage at a sold Ace of Spades with an unbridled fury. Bringing the The Blood of Gods Tour, to a standing or squirming room only crowd, in downtown Sacramento, we were all in for a treat as they pummeled us with “War On Gwar”, the first track off the new record and closing the night out with their cover of the AC/DC classic “If You Want Blood, You’ve Got It”

 

Concert Review: GWAR at The National in Richmond, Virginia

October 20th here in Richmond, hundreds of Bohabs flocked to The National for Gwars start of their ‘Blood of the Gods” tour. This is the same day as the release of their album, of the same name fans, were anxiously clamoring for. For those of you who have never been to a Gwar show, or are patiently awaiting their ticket date in their city, I’m here to paint you a very bloody picture.

US Bastards start off the show. The lead singer is Gwar slave Brent Purgason. They were high energy thrash punk and had a way of keeping the pit going. I was a part of that pit and it did go crazy. They are a definite must see and are on the rise here in Richmond. California friends please check them out.
Doyle came on the stage right after. The band is named after the guitarist that was formerly a member of the Misfits. This was my first time seeing them play onstage. I was shocked to see, Doyle himself was not the lead singer, but nonetheless they had a great set. Many were disappointed, that there were too many slow songs and no Misfit covers, but I had a fun time listening and watching them play.

Now Ghoul truly entertained me. I was sucked into their story line, which now is kinda blurry to me, since I had a few pre-show beers and a few hits of a weed oil vape. In spite of that, Ghouls characters were amazing, and their deaths were even better. There is no wonder why they were invited, to play before Gwar. I suggest you catch a Ghoul show whenever you can.

Now for what all you bohabs are waiting for. Gwar’s set started off with a video playing on two screens on stage, talking about how America has finally found a way to best Gwar. Two soldiers come on stage, looking to ensure that they have finally killed Gwar, and of course they did not. They were quickly beheaded. I won’t give too much away, but they are introduced to a new boss from Glomco, and had to fight a series of villains. I must say many of the songs, I did not like as much in my last review, were much better with the visuals onstage. Blowthar (Michael Bishop) did great, and though my heart yearns for Oderus (Dave Brockie), and his deep and sexy voice, I can appreciate Blowthar. The song that hit me the most is Phantom Limb, a song dedicated to Oderus. It was a great night. You are in for a bloody treat.

All in all Gwar did a great show. Mike Derk’s Balsac the Jaws of Death is fighting a serious bone marrow disease and doing what he loves the most to get through it. Please show your support and register to donate bone marrow and donate money for medical help at this site. Show your support. He’s been playing for the fans forever and I wish him the fastest recovery and better health. Nikki Knight

Beefcake the Mighty of GWAR Interviewed “I would Vajazzle her to death.”

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.

GWAR – The Blood Of Gods – Metal Blade Records – Release Date October 20, 2017

Gwar been slaying and spewing on millions ever since their first show at P.B. Kelly’s in 1985 and throughout their career the unforgettable and irreplaceable Dave Brockie had many different influences and always experimented with their sound. Three years after his tragic passing his ocean of bohabs (gwar fans) have mourned and been looking to the rest of the band to help them carry on. Now after two Gwarbq’s and new looks at Warped Tour they are now soon to be releasing a new album. Blood Of The Gods.

There are many songs on this album like “Fuck This Place” and “EL Presidente” that seem to be follow ups to Lust in Space and Sadam A GO GO. This brings upon some nostalgia of the past. “Phantom Limb” is a song dedicated to Oderus/Dave Brockie and you cant help but think of what Oderus might’ve said back. I can see memories flow in the forefront of my mind about Dave/Oderus . There are many good songs on this album but some like ” I’ll Be Your Monster” and “Death to Dickie Duncan” fall a bit flat to me and doesn’t give me the feeling Gwar usually does. Honestly I can say that the album is ok and I do like a few of the songs although I still feel like there is something missing.

Not to sound like a whiney bohab but it honestly is missing the feel Oderus used to give the songs when he performed them. Blothar has amazing vocals and there is nothing wrong with his job at all I just feel like this is something that is difficult to assimilate to. Oderus had a more raw and aggressive sound that showed his range from low guttural growls to clean smooth notes sustained and held lengthy strides that bounce back and forth to our amazement and Blothar has a very clean high pitched voice and has a great growl like a roar Its very different in delivery of the sound and is still something I’m sure many bohab’s will enjoy.

1. “War on Gwar” 7:21
2. “Viking Death Machine” 4:15
3. “El Presidente” 4:21
4. “I’ll Be Your Monster” 3:09
5. “Auroch” 4:05
6. “Swarm” 4:33
7. “The Sordid Soliloquy of Sawborg Destructo” 4:07
8. “Death to Dickie Duncan” 3:39
9. “Crushed By the Cross” 3:57
10. “Fuck This Place” 5:08
11. “Phantom Limb” 6:10
12. “If You Want Blood (You Got It)” (AC/DC cover)
