GWAR Premiere Animated Video For “Viking Death Machine”

GWAR have premiered an animated video for their song “Viking Death Machine.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Blood Of Gods.”

Blothar commented:

“Humans, are you ready to ride the ‘Viking Death Machine‘? Our latest video is a faithful animated schlockumentary depicting my harrowing, blood-drenched defeat of the Load Warriors and the other denizens of Saturday morning raceway hijinx, including all of my fellow bandmates in GWAR. I am delighted to take my rightful place as the King of Cartoon Violence, and champion of the first annual Suck-It-Up-Butter Cup! Watch the video now! It’ll make you shit.”

GWAR will soon be kicking off a tour with Hatebreed, Miss May I, Ringworm, and American Sharks. The group will also play a New Year’s Eve (December 31) show at the Norva in Norfolk, VA with Municipal Waste, High On Fire, and Toxic Holocaust.

GWAR Apparently Made A Cameo In The Pilot Episode Of “Rick And Morty”

As GWAR themselves have pointed out, the late Oderus Urungus and Beefcake The Mighty apparently made a cameo in the pilot episode of “Rick In Morty” back in 2013. You can see a photo of that in the below tweet. This isn’t the only time GWAR have had a connection with the show either. The band also recently helped destroy a “Rick And Morty” themed bar in Washington D.C. after it was forced to close down following a cease-and-desist from Turner Broadcasting. You can read more about that and see some photos over at Vice.
