The Blood of Gods Mythos:

The story of GWAR is carved across the history of this barren and hopeless planet, but GWAR themselves are not of this world... their story begins in the deepest reaches of outer space. Long ago, the beings who would become the rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe. For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master. But one by one, each future member of the band earned a glaring reputation for being an intergalactic fuck-up. And so, they were banished, sent away on a fool’s errand to conquer an insignificant shitball floating in a dark corner of the universe; the planet Earth. Once here, GWAR shaped the face of the globe, destroying and rebuilding the natural world, and giving rise to all of human history. Aliens to some, gods and demons to others, our erstwhile Scumdogs fucked apes to create the human race, and this fateful unplanned pregnancy would prove to be truly disastrous!

Their new album, “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitical disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called “I’ll Be Your Monster.” If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!

Of course, “The Blood of Gods” is the first GWAR album without the band’s fallen leader, Oderus Urungus. The title of the album refers to the loss of Oderus. and the struggles and triumphs that produced the new sound of the band. Born of adversity, “The Blood of Gods” is a sonic scar...a question asked and answered...Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing can. GWAR LIVES MOTHERFUCKERS!
Doyle
Doyle
Misfits Legendary guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein breaks new ground with His second Solo Record DOYLE ll “AS WE DIE” an EMP Label Group/Monsterman Records release.

As We Die and Abominator are sonically thick and lyrically evil slabs of horror- punk tinged metal that finds Doyle expanding in a logical progression upon the genre of music he helped create. Doyle's first band, the infamous Glenn Danzig-fronted Misfits, helped create the genre of speed/thrash metal with their last album, 1983's "Earth AD/Wolf's Blood"- in fact the record has been revered as one of the blueprints for the genre by many of its most respected players, as evidenced by countless groups covering the album's songs, not the least of which being Metallica. His music is not the sound of some punk guitarist gone metal- it's the roaring return of one of extreme metal's original architects to his blood- splattered drawing board.

Recording both guitar and bass tracks for the albums, the unmistakable sound of Doyle's signature Annihilator guitar cuts through on every tune, starting with the snarling opening title track “Abominator" fans of the Misfits will recognize it right away. But 
the guitar tracks rip through the records with much heavier metallic force than his previous band’s recordings - in short it's the sound he's been trying to capture all along, and it's positively malevolent.
While the horror punk vibe of The Misfits does permeate the album (as it should), the guitar work on Abominator and As We Die is more technical (and far meatier) than your average punk rock record.

With guitar, bass, and drums laid down (live show bass duty is handled Brandon Strate), the vocals claw their way out of an unlikely locale- the American Deep South. Coming from a legendary band of almost mythological proportions, and having first worked with one of punk and metal's most talented and respected vocalists (the infamous Glenn Danzig), Doyle's new project would need a singer with brass balls, cast-iron pipes, a suitably twisted mind, and his own vocal delivery style. Enter Alabama Wolfman Alex Story of Cancerslug, a Southern fiend who more than meets all of the afore-mentioned qualifications. His sandblasted scream opens Abominator, and the evil doesn't relent until the ending growl of "Night of Sin", As We Die’s defiant closer. The man can scream and sing, and employs both styles to great effect, switching seamlessly from raw-throated roars to rough-edged, yet melodic, horror punk-style clean vocals.

With the release of Doyle ll “As We Die”, Doyle and company are set to hit the road and bring the monster to life on stages far and wide. Anyone who has seen Doyle play classic Misfits songs on tour with Danzig over the last few years already knows what an imposing stage presence he has- in truth, imposing isn't a strong enough word to describe this behemoth of a man. He's actually pretty damn terrifying, and the horror- punk aesthetic he helped create has been maintained through the years, from the skull white face and wicked devil lock to his massive bloody hands- that's real blood, by the way. Watching Doyle hammer such heavy tones out of a guitar, one wonders how the damn thing is going to make it through just one song, much less an entire set. With an absolutely vicious new album of songs, a wild-eyed wolf- man of a singer, a ghoulish jackhammer on the drums, a road-tested bassist, and a really loud blood-soaked guitar rig, Doyle will be destroying a venue near you soon. "It's time to hit the road for real and take this as far as it will go. We're fucking ready" he says. And what can fans expect at a Doyle show?

"To get fucking pummeled, man. And then go home and ask themselves 'What the fuck just happened to me?!?”...
Loud, aggressive, and technically proficient, Doyle and crew are set to show the world how true horror metal sounds today.
So crank up Abominator and As We Die until your speakers blow, check out Doyle on tour soon, and let the beatings begin. Hail horror!
