Scumdogs of the Universe, GWAR are already intent on enslaving the human race for their own perverse appetites. However, they’ve decided to make it a bit easier on themselves and get us drunk so that we’re easy fodder. How exactly do they plan on doing that? Simple! The monstrosities have teamed up with Cigar City Brewing to release GWAR’s Impaled Ale.
Singer Oderus Urungus states, “Once again, we blow the horn of war and set into motion the gears that grind us towards the greatest GWAR B-Q yet. We will be shoving a wealth of GWAR products down your throat… not only our new GWAR B-Q sauce, but our very own beer, Impaled Ale. Eat and drink yourself into a diabetic stupor, then puke it all up in the slam pit! It’s gonna fucking rule!”
Between 15 and 30 barrels are being brewed, the vast majority of which will be served at the 4th Annual GWAR B-Q, which is being held August 17th in Richmond, Virginia. READ MORE
The scumdogs of the universe known as GWAR are going to hold the “Meat And Meet Bash” Monday, April 8th at Grinders in Kansas City, MO before embarking on the “Fate Or Chaos” tour, which will see support come from Warbeast and Wilson. The bash will see the premiere of the new GWAR-B-Q sauce, which was created by guitarist Balsac, The Jaws Of Death!
Balsac comments, “This new taste sensation is mostly made out of the blood of really hot chicks. It was a terrible waste of fine ass, but ultimately worth it because this sauce is absolutely delicious!”
Full tour dates for the “Fate Or Chaos” tour are below. READ MORE
Our masters and leaders from Antarctica, GWAR have announced that they will be embarking on a US tour that will serve as the second and final leg of the “Fate Or Chaos” tour. Support will come from Warbeast and Wilson.
Lead front thing Oderus Urungus states, “As you humans amuse yourself with your mundane holidays, it has been a time of intense activity for GWAR, as we record our 13th studio album– the first one with our new Scumdog brother, Pustulus Maximus!
“We begin this year’s festivities with the second and final leg of our Fate or Chaos tour, so everybody who missed the first leg can see Cyber-Jesus get his fucking ass handed to him. Then it’s back in the studio to work on all the hulking war machines we shall need on our devastating, brand-spanking new tour, after the album drops at the end of the summer! Can you believe I said drop? How fucking stupid!”
To all of our sports fans here on Bloody-Disgusting, you’ll get a kick out of this! Our favorite Scumdogs of the Universe GWAR have recorded a new song entitled “Wheel Of Punishment” that will be the theme song to a new segment on The Dan Patrick Show, a sports commentary tv show/radio program. You can hear the song in a clip below (the song begins at the 4:00 minute mark). READ MORE
It’s hard to believe that Metal Blade Records has been around for 30 years but here they are, still rocking and bringing some of the very best metal to fans ears. To celebrate this occasion, Metal Blade teamed up with Scion A/V to bring a free showcase concert with performances from Six Feet Under, Cattle Decapitation, Battlecross, Gypsyhawk, and Pilgrim. While there, Scion A/V conducted interviews with each band as well as recorded the showcase to release a 7″ featuring a track from both Gypsyhawk and Pilgrim. You can download the 7″ below and head on over here to see some awesome interviews.
I look back at Metal Blade and, while I’ve enjoyed some of their more recent years, I cannot thank them enough for introducing me to bands like GWAR, The Black Dahlia Murder, Behemoth, Battlecross, Mercyful Fate, and so many, many more. Metal Blade is one of those labels that didn’t just release music, they helped shaped the very foundation of metal would become.
And so I raise my official Metal Blade pint glass and say, “Congratulations Metal Blade on making it to 30 years. Here’s to another 30 of you kicking asses all over the place!” READ MORE
GWAR, the Scumdogs of the Universe, may look like they’re perfectly suited (pun intended) for the Halloween season, but remember that, to them, this is who they are! And this is also the first Halloween where they’ve gone out trick-or-treating, so you can imagine the shenanigans they get into walking the neighborhoods of New Jersey. Yeesh…
It’s a video that will definitely elicit a chuckle or two, so have fun below! READ MORE
Danny Trejo (Machete), Bill Moseley (House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects), and actors from the TV show Holliston, including Joe Lynch, were tossed into a meat grinder during GWAR‘s performance at the Rock N Shock horror convention in Worcester, MA on Oct. 13th. Singer Oderus Urungus is a regular cast member of the show.
While there isn’t the usual waterfall of blood spraying out into the crowd, it’s still a fun treat to see these actors have such a good time. You can see footage of the brutal, senseless violence below. READ MORE
The scumdogs of the universe known as GWAR have released the first image of new guitarist Pustulus Maximus. Pustulus takes over the slot that was held by his cousin Flattus, who passed away last year. You can see what he looks like below as well as read a statement from singer Oderus Urungus.
In his first official press statement, Pustulus said, “At this point I have nothing to say to the press, even though I am talking to you. I will let my guitar speak for itself. But let me add that I am blood-sworn to honor the legacy of the great Flattus and indeed the whole Maximus tribe. I didn’t come here to fuck around. HAIL FLATTUS!”
Direct from the official press release: “Little..is known about this being, other than that he has a skin condition where his face and feet are covered in painful pustules that can only be soothed by the application of savage metal, spoiled elephant semen or oral sex. Pustulus is also rumored to be half-deaf, which leads him to yell at everyone, which he does often, because he is convinced everyone in the band is ignoring him when actually he just can’t hear what they are saying.”
The band will be embarking on the “Fate Or Chaos” Tour alongside DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, and Legacy Of Disorder. Tour dates are below. READ MORE
The Warner Sound has teamed up with Funny Or Die to present a brand new YouTube only talk show run by Gorburger, a creature that looks part Where The Wild Things Are, part Troll Doll, and part GWAR. Starring T.J. Miller (Cloverfield), the show will feature many Warner Sounds artists, including Mars Volta, Tegan and Sara, 3OH!3, and more. It’s scheduled to appear every Monday starting Sept. 24th on The Warner Sound’s official YouTube page.
Featuring heads being torn off, incredibly awkward sexual innuendo, and more, this looks like a series that I’ll be enjoying on a regular basis (thanks scheduled upload times!). Check out a trailer for this monstrosity below. READ MORE

Devildriver will be hitting the road this fall on an almost two-month schedule that will see them supporting GWAR as well as striking out on some of their own headline dates. The band will be using this as the last tour in support of 2011′s Beast.
Singer Dez Fafara comments, “DEVILDRIVER was going to take some time off from our touring schedule in October and November, but when we were asked to support GWAR, it was a resounding YES in our Camp! The GWAR tour we did is still the most fun the band and I have ever had on a run and we are all excited and looking forward to these shows. Our crowds go together well and it will be Halloween Season so it seems appropriate and fitting we should be out on the road at this time and with a timeless act like The All Mighty GWAR! HAIL to the Devils Duo about to ride together again!!!”
Devildriver have recently signed to Napalm Records and anticipate that their debut record with that label will be out in 2014.
Having seen Devildriver open up for GWAR several years ago, I can 100% attest to the ridiculous amounts of fun I had at that line-up. I HIGHLY recommend that you check out this tour if it comes through your neck of the woods. Check below for tour dates to see if that is the case. READ MORE
The Scumdogs of the universe, our masters and slavers, GWAR have announced that they will be embarking on the “Fate Or Chaos” tour this fall. Support will come from DevilDriver, Legacy Of Disorder, and Cancer Bats. The band will be leaving the comfort of their Antarctic base where they were alternating between recording a new album and hibernating in order to bring you almost two months of vicious, violent, viscous (gross) shows.
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus explains, “Once again GWAR returns, hoof and nail, to our old stomping grounds, North America, on a tour of utter destruction, and this time nothing less than the greatest power in the universe will do as our primary victim! That’s right, this time GWAR, fresh from our battle with Death, takes on another of history’s biggest a**holes…God himself! Seeing as we don’t have the new album done yet, we really had to do something spectacular…”
Oderus speaks more below about the tour and how a new Scumdog will be joining the band. Also below is the full tour schedule as well as tour poster. READ MORE
Dave Brockie, the man behind GWAR‘s Oderus Urungus, will be writing and illustrating Towers Two, a tabletop RPG adventure campaign for the “Lamentations of the Flame Princess”. Fellow Slave Pit artist Matt Maguire will help with the illustrations. This project is currently being crowd funded through IndieGoGo here. More information about the entire series can be found here.
The adventure will tell a story of insanity and dread: The mighty ‘Towers Two’ had stood as a symbol of stability and prosperity over a world that was increasingly slipping into chaos. But ever since the difficult birth of the identical twin brothers Rondrel and Zal, a shadow has fallen over the family and the land they had ruled for centuries. The brothers quarreled over the power they had inherited from their father, squandering their wealth, and sending the line into decay. The nearby village of Ham, once happy to call Towers Two and the Family Hune their protectors, now live in fear of the fortress and it inhabitants.
Read on for quotes from Brockie as well as LotFP publisher James Edward Raggi IV. Also, make sure to check up on the GWAR-B-Q and all the information for it here. READ MORE

Gwar and Peta have joined forces to bring you an informercial decrying the slaughter of animals for their fur. While I think Peta is a sham and that the lot of them are a bunch of hypocrites, I’m still not cool with innocent animals being killed for their pelts. Also, this video is quite hilarious (well, when it’s not showing animals being massacred left and right) and features Oderus Urungus outlying a plan for a more economical option for faux fur (hint: Scott Tenorman sells this organic material). Keep your eyes open for a cameo from Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe and Gwar guitarist Balsac the Jaws Of Death. You can watch the video below but, as mentioned above, there are scenes of animals being killed. So if that’s gonna ruin your day more than this, I recommend not watching it. READ MORE
Just the other day, I had the chance to chat with GWAR frontman and leader of the universe, Oderus Urungus himself. We spoke about his upcoming role in the FEARnet original, Holliston, which follows directors Adam Green and Joe Lynch as they chase their dreams of being horror directors. Oderus has taken on the role of Adam’s imaginary friend and resides in his closet, coming forth here and there to offer what seems to be truly dreadful advice that should not be heeded.
Check below to hear this hilarious, uncensored audio interview which goes over topics such as Oderus’ role, what he brings to the set, and the answer to defining his sexuality. Is he gay? Is he straight? Does he look at planet Earth as some sort of large buffet? Find out below!
GWAR has announced that they will be hitting the road again this spring on the Return Of The Maggot Tour! Support will come from Municipal Waste and Ghoul with Legacy of Disorder joining the tour in Boston. The band will be touring as a four-piece. Tour dates can be seen below.
Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus) had this to say: ”All the years of doing GWAR could never have prepared us for what we have been through, and I want to thank the metal community and the extended GWAR family for all of your support. Finishing that last tour was the hardest thing we have ever had to do, and we still have about half of the country left to hit. We will continue as a four-piece, with the special tribute to Flattus at the end of the show, in order to give our fans a chance to say goodbye to our fallen Scumdog brother in true GWAR fashion-covered in blood and rocking the fuck out! After this tour is over we can start looking to the future and begin to put this tragedy behind us. But for now we are still in “Hail Flattus” mode!”
Without fail, GWAR put on what is possibly the most fun concert I’ve ever been to. I came in wearing a white shirt and left red, blue and purple. I was covered in blood and god knows what other fluids they decided to spray on the crowd. Plus, Devildriver had just opened up, so the crowd was already having a total blast.
Fast forward to today and GWAR has announced a fall tour entitled Return Of The World Maggot, which will feature openers Every Time I Die, Warbeast, and Ghoul. I won’t be able to make the Detroit show because I’m already seeing Opeth that night, but you should definitely go if you’re in the area! Check out the tour dates after the jump!
Alright Bloody-Disgusting readers, check it out. It’s been a while since GWAR bassist Beefcake The Mighty has been able to grace us with his knowledge and answer your questions regarding love and relationships. What’s that? You want to know why? You dare ask? He’s been to busy raping the penguins outside of the GWAR Antarctic home base, that’s why! The man can’t be disturbed when his schlong is wreaking havoc amongst the indigenous population. I tried it once. I barely escaped with my life, not to mention the cherished virginity of my eye socket (who does that???). But now the love guru is back to answer your questions!
Alright my European brethren, you think I don’t care about you. Fact is, I love each and every one of you. Having been to Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and (technically) Great Britain, I love your side of the world! That’s why I feel somewhat guilty for not reporting on your end of things. As a result, I want to alert you all that GWAR are heading your way and you should check ‘em out! Also, a lucky few of you will get to watch Clutch rock out on the same night! Excited? Well, you should be! Check out the tour dates after the jump!
We were gonna post this earlier but we figured that in the spirit of April Fools and all the fun jokes that have been permeating the internet, how about some more laughs? After the jump, you can read two more questions and answers from the biggest, sexiest bassist in the music industry. Don’t forget to leave a comment with your question for the next edition of Ask Beefcake: Advice For Forlorn Lovers!
Slave Pit Inc., the guys behind GWAR and other deviant productions, have put together a Kickstarter for a new online show entitled ‘The Blood Vomits‘! My words cannot do it justice, so just read this synopsis to get an idea of what you’re in store for: “Set in a violent medieval world, “The Blood Vomits” tells the tale of Mad Dog, Nails, and their friend, Father Macgregor, as they rape and pillage their way into your hearts.” Wow…..

“I pledge to have sex with anyone who votes for us. It will all be arranged thru the interweb, and on the next tour I will personally meet our supporters out behind the trash dumpsters and fuck them, suck them, whatever they want. If they don’t want to do that, then I will have sex with something they own, like a dog, or a lunch-box. I will also be glad to rough-up anyone, ya know, smack ya around a bit, throw you in the garbage, hell even kick ya in the tummy….won’t kill ya though…want you to be able to brag about it to your co-workers.”
