Gwar is going to tour in Australia In April 2018!

Earth’s favorite interplanetary warriors, 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.
Statement of the Blothar the Berskerer  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 is 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 has been praised by fans and media alike as triumphs of unimaginable genius.

 

Formed in Antarctica 1984 by manager Sleazy P. Martini, Gwar has forged a path of debauchery for over 30 years and it seems their work is still not done.
Gwar’s mythology is rich in political and social satire. Their cult-following is galvanized by their controversial, indefatigable and ostentatious live performances, where crowds of willing slaves are subjected to ripe humor and theatrical imagery… and lots and lots of blood, vomit and other bodily fluids.
Don’t miss Gwar’s odyssey of death and destruction as they turn their eyes towards Earth’s most remote outcrop of human scum, Australia.
“Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing can.” – stated by Gwar

GWAR’S popular comic “ORGASMAGEDDON” collected edition is going to be released!

Due To Massive Demand, GWARORGASMAGEDDON will see release as a trade paperback from Dynamite Comics, collecting all 4 issues of the hit series.  The book will include the main story by GWAR’s Matt Maguire, Matt Miner, Jonathan Brandon Sawyer and Tom Neely, plus all the backup stories and art from a wide range of ultra-talented creators and members of GWAR themselves.
Statement of the co-writer Matt Miner about the comic:
“It’s been an honor to work on this book with the guys from GWAR.  “I’m thrilled and humbled by the massive positive response the comic books have gotten and I’m ecstatic that Dynamite Comics is publishing a collected paperback that can sit on library shelves and corrupt children for decades to come.”
GWAR and Matt Miner ask that fans pre-order the new trade paperback and visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find their local stores, to ask them in person, on Twitter, Facebook, or on the phone to carry the book on their shelves.  “Facebook messages are the least intrusive but most effective means of outreach,” says Miner.  “If the trade paperback does well then we could see a second comic series of blood-drenched antics featuring our favorite Scumdogs of the Universe.”
Miner also has some advice for those wanting to own copies of the book themselves: “Get your pre-orders in now and secure your copy.  Wait until it’s sold out and you’ll be selling kidneys on the black market to pay jacked-up prices on eBay.”
The comic creators have provided a pre-order coupon for fans to print and bring to their local comic stores, and, should eager readers not have a local comic store, Miner suggests pre-ordering online from Things From Another World (TFAW.com) at this link: http://bit.ly/TFAWgwar
Having already violated the art, music, and film worlds, now infamous scumdogs GWAR are coming for your graphic novels and bookstores!  Do you need to be a GWAR fan to love this book?  Hell no!  There’s loads of laughs, violence, fun, and irreverent social satire for everyone to enjoy!
Trampling through the past after being trapped in time by the cold and calculating Mr. Perfect, GWAR fights and kills and kills and KILLS, slogging their way through human history in a torrent of gore, blood, bile, and other assorted bodily fluids the way only the most famous satirical heavy metal band from the depths of outer space can.
Again, what grim vision this? Blood stained tomb, beer cans, and piss…

About Doyle:

Lodi, a small borough of Bergen County, New Jersey, is just over two square miles. There’s not much to suggest that the small village would be the birthplace of a world famous, blood-soaked form of music known as horror punk. Legendary acts The MisfitsSamhain, and Danzig all have their origins in Lodi, and something monstrous indeed lurks there. The poster child and originator of the genre, himself, has once again unleashed an evil noise on an unsuspecting world: Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein’s first release, Abominator, by his eponymous band, Doyle.

Released on Doyle’s own label, Monsterman Records, Abominator is a sonically thick and lyrically evil slab of metal that finds Doyle expanding in a logical progression upon the genre of music he helped create. Doyle’s first band, the infamous Glenn Danzig fronted Misfits, helped create the genre of speed/thrash metal with their last album, 1983’s Earth AD/Wolf’s Blood in fact the record has been revered as one of the blueprints for the genre by many of its most respected players, as evidenced by countless groups covering the album’s songs, not the least of which being MetallicaAbominator is not the sound of some punk guitarist gone metal- it’s the roaring return of one of extreme metal’s original architects to his blood-splattered drawing board.

Coming from a legendary band of almost mythological proportions, and having first worked with one of the most talented and respected vocalists of the century (the infamous Glenn Danzig), Doyle’s new project would need a singer with brass balls, cast-iron pipes, a suitably twisted mind, and his own vocal delivery style. Enter Alabama’s Alex Story of Cancerslug, a Southern fiend who’s sand-blasted scream opens the record, and the evil doesn’t relent until the ending growl of “Hope Hell Is Warm”, the album’s defiant closer. The man can scream and sing, and employs both styles to great effect, switching seamlessly from raw-throated roars to rough-edged, yet melodic, clean vocals. Alex’s live performances can only be described as unforgettable, disturbing and strangely addictive – a perfect complement to the already mammoth stage presence of Doyle himself.

Doyl RFYL

The unmistakable sound of Doyle’s signature Annihilator guitar cuts through on every tune like a sonic fingerprint, starting with the snarling opening title track Abominator. The Annihilator’s tone is sharp as a butcher’s knife in the wrong hands and just as nasty- fans of the Misfits will recognize it right away.

On tunes like ”Headhunter ” and ”Land of the Dead”the riffs are relentless, and if a riff could be described in emotional terms, remorseless. ”Dreamingdeadgirls” brings a blackened-blues swing, and the doom-laden “Love Like Murder” shows a healthy appreciation for all things Sabbath. “Blood Stains” moves from primal sludge to ripping off-time thrash with ease. The album is just that- an album, a cohesive and well executed piece of work that takes the listener on a journey; albeit a bloody journey to places some fear to tread.

D14

As befits songs as musically dark as Abominator‘s, the album’s lyrics are not for the faint of heart. Throughout the entire record, there is absolutely zero attempt to balance its evil with any sort of good counterpoint- penned entirely by Story (probably in blood), Abominator‘s lyrics are entirely and uncompromisingly dark. Music fans looking for feel- good anthems had best look elsewhere- those who enjoy strolling through the shadows will be greatly satisfied.

So how did this Jersey devil and crew wind up with a Dixie-bred howler? ”After I had written all this music, I realized I had to get someone to sing this stuff- once I’m done recording guitars, all I can see is myself just playing that riff, ya know? That’s my thing, not lyrics and singing,” Doyle says, with typically blunt candor. “I’ve known Alex for a while, so I called him up, then sent him a bunch of the tunes. Two days later he sent me back ‘Mark of the Beast’, just like it is on the record. I said ‘That’s exactly what I want!’, and the rest is history. I only wrote the word ‘abominator’- all the rest of that stuff is Alex. He’s just crazy, man”.

01

It’s a match made in hell. But no metal band would be complete without a complete animal behind the drum kit. Brandon ”The Crusher” Pertzborn (of Black Flag) delivers all the aggression and insanity necessary (and then some) with his exquisite musicality and showmanship.

So what can fans expect at a Doyle show?

”To get fucking pummeled, man. And then go home and ask themselves ‘What the fuck just happened to me?!?’, hahaha…” he replies with a laugh that this time, no joke about it, actually sounds evil. Loud, aggressive, and technically proficient, Doyle and crew are set to show the world how true horror metal sounds today.

So crank up Abominator until your speakers blow, check out Doyle on tour, and let the beatings begin!
