Standing in staunch opposition to any presumptuous notion of “reinventing the wheel” or “redefining the genre”, Visigoth instead dedicates themselves to worshipping at the ageless altars of heavy metal with a singular focus on writing music inspired by their favorite records.

Whether whipped into a frenzy ignited by classic USPM or NWOBHM anthems or pensively meditating on traditional epic heavy metal or weighty doom-inspired moments, these Salt City Hessians wear their influences proudly on their sleeves. With their new 2018 long-player ‘Conqueror’s Oath‘, Visigoth stays true to the title and conquers the sophomore slump blues with 8 iron-forged anthems of pure metal magick guaranteed to satiate the hunger of the rock’n’roll hordes! Returning to the depths of the Boar’s Nest in their hometown of Salt Lake City to record once again with engineer extraordinaire Andy Patterson (SubrosaDeathblow,Dreadnought, et al), ”Conqueror’s Oath was hammer-forged in a whirlwind month of mayhem and mastered by Dave Otero of Flatline Audio (Satan’s HostNightbringerKhemmis, et al).

Immortalized by breathtaking cover art created by none other than underground album art legend Kris Verwimp (whose work has graced records by AbsuBewitchedDesasterHorna,MoonsorrowSkullviewArkona, and many, many more) in proper swords-and-sorcery fashion,Conqueror’s Oath” stands tall on the field of battle, serving as a gauntleted fist in the face of non-believers. Prepare for the onslaught of Salt City Steel!

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…
