Virginia metal legends GWAR have entitled the bands new release "BLOODY PIT OF HORROR" set for a 11/9/2010 unleash date via METAL BLADE RECORDS.
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

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 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."

"Bloody Pit of Horror" is reportedly "heavy as fuck", and features songs like "Hail to Genocide", "Storm is Coming", and "Tick-Tits", the latter of which is "a song about a chick whose tits are covered in ticks…big fat gray puffy ones," said Oderus.

Fresh off the amazing experience that was the 2010 GWAR-B-Q, intergalactic snuff-rockers GWAR continue their relentless assault upon all humanity with the announcement of their first run of dates for this fall's "Bloody Tour of Horror".

Catch GWAR on the "Bloody Tour Of Horror" with THE CASUALTIES, INFERNAEON and MOBILE DEATHCAMP starrting on October 2 in Baltimore, Maryland.

The new GWAR DVD, "Lust In Space - Live At The National", can now be ordered at Sleazy P. Martini's Hypereal Productions page. The footage for the DVD was filmed at the National Theater in Richmond, Virginia and chronicles GWAR's return to outer space in search of its old Scumdog legion and its battle against Cardinal Syn. The disc contains the band's full 82-minute set, the 10-minute "Behind The Murder" mockumentary, plus a special "features" section, including interview extras, a behind-the-scenes look at special F/X being filmed and a slideshow featuring band shots from the album cover. Two additional DVDs, "Blood Drive 2002" and "War Party 2004" (both also shot by Sleazy P. Martini), are also available at the Hypereal Productions page.

GWAR's latest album, "Lust In Space", sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 96 on The Billboard 200 chart.
