GWAR Release New Sex Toy Based On Oderus Urungus’ Cuttlefish Of Cthulhu

GWAR have joined forces with Bad Dragon to create a new sex toy based on the late Oderus Urungus’ Cuttlefish Of Cthulhu. If you’re interested, you can find one HERE. The following was said about the collaboration:

“GWAR recently seized control of the red-hot phallic forges deep in the Bad Dragon lair, where legendary sex-smiths work day and night to create the highest-quality fantasy-themed adult toys in the business. The result is a new monster dong for the denizens of planet Earth. Now, you too can wield the awesome power of the winged wiener of Oderus Urungus, the Cuttlefish of Cthulu!”

GWAR have shared an age-restricted music video for “The Cutter.” The track, which features Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, appears on the band’s latest album “The New Dark Ages.”

GWAR‘s Blöthar The Berserker commented:

“Lzzy Hale is wonderfully talented. Few realize she is also an undercover Scumdog who came to Earth with the rest of GWAR eons ago under her true name Clitaurus Maximus of the Maximus clan. We are delighted to have her voice and image on this work of absolute genius.”

Hale added:

“I, Clitaurus Maximus the She Bull… hereby declare, ‘The Cutter‘ as my FIRST feature in a MOTHERFUCKING GWAR SONG! Thank you so much to these interplanetary warriors for the much-appreciated bloodletting, and for giving this lil’ beast the opportunity to rear her three ugly heads!”

Blöthar The Berserker commented:

“Long ago, GWAR broke the frame of what a rock concert can be. We’ve pushed the envelope of live performance for decades, but this time around, we wanted to do something different. This is the first GWAR show conceived to go along with a graphic novel and an album, all working together as one massive hunk of hot steaming shock rock performance ART!

A can’t-miss cavalcade of chaos, a trash culture trilogy, a shocking extravaganza that will leave you utterly spent, soaking wet, and bawling uncontrollably. We’ve got the coolest storyline, unbelievable new characters, more blood, gore, and gags than ever before. Come, unload your worries, human scum, and let GWAR transport you to the Duoverse of absurdity just in time for the NEW DARK AGE!”

“This Is GWAR” Documentary Acquired By Shudder

GWAR’s “This Is GWAR” documentary has been acquired by Shudder. Fans in the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to watch the film through the streaming service on July 21.

Shudder general manager Craig Engler commented:

“For more than three decades, GWAR has set the standard for heavy metal horror with larger-than-life personas and gore-filled stage shows that were unlike anything anyone had ever seen. But even their most ardent fans have never seen them like this, as the band and director Scott Barber reveal in moving detail the literal blood, sweat and tears that have made GWAR the true legends they are today.”

GWAR added:

“GWAR is founded on horror, humor, and heavy metal. Of course, we love Shudder! It’s our favorite. Every movie is like a home movie for us. Are you kidding me?? Monsters, demons, the undead, dinosaurs? Those are our people! GWAR and Shudder. Two terrifying tastes that taste terrifying together.”

Here’s a synopsis of the film:

“The powerful story of the most iconic heavy metal/art collective/monster band in the universe, as told by the humans who have fought to keep it alive for over thirty years. The feature documentary includes interviews with members of GWAR, both past and present, as well as other artists including Weird Al Yankovic, Thomas Lennnon, Alex Winter, Bam Margera, and Ethan Embry, also including never before seen footage of legendary GWAR frontman Dave Brockie.”

Blöthar The Berserker Thinks GWAR’s New Album Is Similar To Their ’90s Material

During a recent appearance on Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn’s “No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn” podcast, GWAR’s Blöthar The Berserker discussed the band’s new album “The New Dark Ages” (out June 3). The singer says he believes the effort is similar to the group’s ’90s material.

Blöthar said the following about the record:

“This one has a lot of variety on it that actually I think is more like the records we did in the ’90s, in the early ’90s. Partly that’s because I’m playing bass on it, so it’s just got a different sound. The songs are… I think it’s just maybe a little more punk than the last record. It’s fun. I love it.”

He also revealed that the band may record a country EP to coincide with the release of the album’s companion graphic novel “GWAR In The Duoverse Of Absurdity”:

“That [alternate universe] GWAR is a country band. So I’ve been like, thinking about… I’m working on some country tunes just to have. I think it would be funny to do an EP of GWAR doing some country songs. I don’t know what it’s gonna be like, but it’s been fun to mess around with and think about.”
