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!

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…..
The voices of the three characters will be provided by GWAR‘s Oderus Urungus, Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe, and Municipal Waste‘s Tony Foresta. To help the project, click the above link.

Don’t let this category be won by a band whose show is just as good as the millions they can spend on it, all for an hour and a half show……vote for the band where the show never stops! Vote for GWAR!!!!”
“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.”

2010 was the first full year of Bloody-Disgusting Music and it’s been one hell of a ride. We’ve worked hard to bring you readers contests, exclusives, reviews, originals and more, all because of our love of music and horror.

GWAR is nearly finished with the touring cycle for their latest album, ‘Bloody Pit Of Horror’. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s all work for the band. Sometimes, you just need to cut loose and bust out some dance moves on the Xbox Kinect. You can check out the ludicrous video HERE.
Dave Brockie, A.K.A. Oderus Urungus of GWAR, has just released his first book, ‘Whargoul’, on Amazon.com. Telling the tale of an undying creature that feeds on the carnage of war, Brockie originally began writing this story back in the late nineties, but was forced to rewrite it from memory when he lost the original manuscripts.
Break.com has a great video that shows the wonderful holiday spirit that GWAR wishes to share with everyday suburban America. Admittedly there are a few casualties along the way, but if there weren’t, would it truly be worthy of GWAR? Check the video below and let us know what Christmas songs you like to sing for your neighbors!
GWAR has been under fire lately from the supporters and constituents of Sarah Palin, all because they simply rip her in half each night on their tour. Is that really so bad? Check out this video below of GWAR taking care of Sarah Palin at Harpo’s in Detroit, Michigan.
Here’s a response for Oderus Urungus: ”Is this what American politics has come to? We have killed every President since Reagan, regardless of party affiliation, and the proof of it is all over the net…but the right-wing tea bag numb-nuts are getting their knickers in a twist over somebody that doesn’t even hold office, and in fact left her office as Alaskan governor in order to concentrate on her reality show…and is this woman actually being considered as a potential president? Why does the agenda of the right require that America be viewed as a global laughing stock? Because between Wikileaks and the attention this idiot gets, that is exactly what you are…” scoffed Oderus.
“Besides, we don’t even kill her, just rip her in half, and honestly she seems to love it! Anything for attention, I suppose.”
Bloody Disgusting has another exclusive audio interview for you, this time with the hilarious, yet horribly dangerous Oderus Urungus of GWAR. Coming to us from the current tour in support of ‘Bloody Pit of Horror’, we spoke how the tour is going, the Jimmy Fallon show appearance and how Oderus would like to sexually violate my dog. Yes, you read that correctly. Check after the jump for the exclusive interview!
Also, make sure to check out our exclusive premiere of ‘Zombies, March!’ HERE. Also, check HERE for current tour dates.

Sound like fun?
Revolver Magazine and GWAR bring you yet another track from the upcoming ‘Bloody Pit Of Horror’ album. You can check it out HERE. Singer Oderus Urungus had this to say about the track:
“This is it, the sickest and my personal favorite song on the album…in fact this masterpiece of macabre metal about the sickening connection between Cthulu and the Nazi Death-Camp Doctors is maybe the creepiest GWAR song ever! From the deathly depths of the endless sea comes the KZ NECROMANCER.”
