Stuff Your Stockings and Other Orifices With New Toys

Pucker up people! The one and only Cuttlefish of Cthulu, longtime companion of the late Oderus Urungus of GWAR, is now available to take home as your very own adult toy!

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! The original Cuttlefish was slightly larger and every bit as appetizing as a burrito from the Mission District in San Francisco, but this model comes in a wide range of sizes from Small through Extra Large. No matter the size, every one of these gems is larger than life itself, much like GWAR!! The signature model even glows in the dark! We have a limited quantity of these abominations available now, and they’re dropping into our Inventory section like heads into a basket.  Grab your very own Phallus in Wonderland right here!

But that’s not all, your Lords and Masters of GWAR have also unveiled the second series of their collaboration with Knuckleheadz of the GWAR Half Pints. This set consists of Pustulus Maximus, Balsac The Jaws of Death and Bonesnapper the cave troll. These are also available for pre-order with delivery by Xmas right here!

The Intergalactic Warlords of GWAR are currently desecrating North America on their “Black Death Rager World Tour,” in support of their latest release “The New Dark Ages.”  The tour stops in Orlando, FL tonight and runs through November 3rd in Baltimore, MD. 

The band has been featuring many new tracks from the album in their live set, including “The Cutter,” which is a heavy metal burner featuring a special guest appearance from Halestorm lead vocalist and undercover Scumdog Lzzy Hale. Today, the band is pleased to present their music video for the track.  Get your first look at the bloody spectacle HERE.  The video was directed by MyGoodEye.

Of the video, frontman Blothar had the following to say 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.” 

Lzzy Hale herself said the following about her alliance with the almighty GWAR 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!” 

Stay tuned for more GWAR news as your Lords and Masters continue their pursuit of Global Domination!

The Berserker Blothar reports - “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!

SHUDDER Acquires Award-Winning Doc THIS IS GWAR

Shudder, AMC Network's premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, has acquired rights to the documentary. This is GWAR, which gives rare insight into the 30-plus year career of one of the world's most outrageous heavy metal bands, GWAR, known for their grotesque costumed characters and notoriously wild, fluid-soaked stage shows. The film, which world premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX, and won the 2021 Audience Award at NIGHTSTREAM, will be available exclusively on Shudder in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Thursday, July 21.

Watch the trailer here!

"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,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “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."

Added GWAR, "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."
