GWAR TO HOLD “MEAT AND MEET” BASH TO KICK OFF SPRING TOUR  

Antarctic metal monsters GWAR are kicking off their spring run of dates with a special “Meat and Meet” at the world-famous Grinders in Kansas City, Mo. The “Meat and Meet” is scheduled for Monday April 8th from 4-6 PM.

 

This event is not only for GWAR to drink and eat themselves into a bloated coma with their legions of slavering fans, but to announce and introduce their brand-new and 100% edible “GWAR-B-Q” sauce, personally created for human consumption by none other than GWAR‘s steel-faced guitar player, Balsac, the Jaws of Death.

 

GWAR-B-Q Sauce– it actually tastes good!”

“This new taste sensation is mostly made out of the blood of really hot chicks”, explained the surprisingly cordial space-barbarian. “It was a terrible waste of fine ass, but ultimately worth it because this sauce is absolutely delicious!”

 

GWAR will be kicking off the second leg of the “Fate or Chaos” tour is scheduled to kick off April 10th in Tucson, AZ and will run through April 25th in Jacksonville, Florida. Support on the tour will come from Warbeast and Wilson. All dates can be found below.

 

The summer will also herald the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q, and this year is shaping-up to have the most colossal, bone-crushing line-up yet! But that’s not all from your toxic mutant under-lords. Rumors of boxed sets, GWAR-B-Q sauce,GWAR beer, and long-awaited “comedy” albums abound. Further details about all of these projects would have to wait until “we get our shit together”, said Oderus.

LORDI: Behind-The-Scenes Footage From ‘The Riff’ Video Shoot

Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “The Riff”, the new video from Finnish heavy metal monsters LORDI, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s new album, “To Beast Or Not To Beast”, which will be released on March 1 in Europe (excluding Finland) via AFM Records. The CD will be made available in North America on March 19 through The End Records.

“The Riff” was issued as as single on February 9. You can see the official lyric video for the song below.

“To Beast Or Not To Beast” was recorded last fall at WireWorld Studio in Nashville, Tennessee with renowned producer Michael Wagener (METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE, SKID ROW, DOKKEN, RAVEN, MEGADETH). The CD marks the recording debut of LORDI‘s new members, keyboardist Hella (replacing Awa) and drummer Mana (replacing Otus).

“The road to this album has truly been paved by hardships,” LORDI leader Mr. Lordi says. “However, the new lineup of the band has given us new and fresh touch and an energetic edge to the recording process, and to the album itself.”

He added: “The album cover painting is actually a part of a larger picture. The original artwork had this vintage-styled lady holding a horned skull, which, however, was not the main point of the art piece. There was something not quite right with the setting, so I made experiments with various versions and framings. Album title was ‘Upgradead’ at that point in time, and the painting was done with that title in mind. But now, with a changed concept of the artwork, the title did not seem to fit anymore. We did not consider it an A-class name either. Our guitarist Amen came up with the final title, which we felt suitable and perfect both for the cover artwork and the album.”

“To Beast Or Not To Beast” track listing:

01. We’re Not Bad For The Kids (We’re Worse)
02. I Luv Ugly
03. The Riff
04. Something Wicked This Way Comes
