The scum dogs of the universe known as GWAR have announced their return from their fortress of solitude in Antarctica. However, they’re not coming alone. Joining them will be Battle Maximus, an all new CD featuring 13 tracks of skull crushing, STD spreading, genocide inducing metal mayhem! Below is a stream of their first single from the album, “Madness At The Core Of Time”, as well as the full track listing and cover art.
Vocal belcher Oderus Urungus states, “This album is both a tribute to Flattus and a telling of the next chapter in the story of GWAR. The combo of the brand new album and show should satisfy even the most hardcore Flattus devotee with the fact that GWAR’s slay-skills are as supreme as ever, and the band stands poised to embark on our most earth-shattering world tour yet. We have mourned, we have honored, and now it’s time to fucking DEVASTATE in the name of Flattus and the supreme entity that is GWAR.”
Battle Maximus is the band’s follow up to 2011′s Bloody Pit Of Horror and the first new album since the passing of guitarist Flattus Maximus (a.k.a. Cory Smoot).
New guitarist Pustulus Maximus states, “It is a highlight of my corpse-littered life to join my Scumdog brothers and continue the legendary legacy of the Maximus clan. I am not so happy that Oderus vandalized my space-ship, effectively marooning me on Earth, but fuck it…it’s time to ROCK!”
