GWAR: ‘Bloody Pit Of Horror’ Artwork Revealed; New Song Available For Streaming
GWAR’s new album, “Gwar’s Bloody Pit Of Horror”, will be released on November 9 via Metal Blade Records. The CD artwork can be viewed below.
A song from the upcoming album, “Zombies, March!”, is available for streaming at Bloody-Disgusting.com.
Fangoria has announced that it will be working with GWAR on the band’s next music video. “Zombies, March!” will be the first clip from “Gwar’s Bloody Pit Of Horror”, and will be shot in Richmond, Virginia during September and October with Fangoria’s own David McKendry.
McKendry (who just finished directing MUNICIPAL WASTE’s video for “Acid Sentence”) is very excited to be working with this legendary group of monsters.
“When a few of the band members approached me about directing the video, I was pretty sure they were going to kill me and take my wallet, or kill my wallet and take me (it was a hard situation to read),” he said. “But apparently it was legit, and they really want me to direct a video.
“I had always been a huge fan of GWAR’s music. Plus the constant threat of being hurled into the jaws of GorGor keeps me on my toes.”
Said infernal overlord and GWAR lead singer Oderus Urungus:
“When I found out we were working with Fangoria on our new video, I immediately sacrificed 50 Norwegian babies on my Burning Altar of Syphilis. This has led to a huge reaction from the undead community; I mean they were literally coming through the walls! Indeed, I think we are going to have to have some kind of zombie try-outs…
“I don’t want to be stuck with mostly old people and o.d.s. We are going for some real variety and everything from fresh abortions to chain-gunned Taliban members will be appearing!”
For what will undoutbedly turn out to be a disturbing video, Fangoria will be recruiting around 75 zombie extras from the Richmond, Virginia/Washington D.C. area. Keep checking Fangoria.com for more details.
“I love working with the undead,” said GWAR bass player and sexual sadist Beefcake the Mighty, “as long as the catering is adequate.”
