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 bandchallenges 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!

Against The Grain
Living up to the title of their 2015 record, Against the Grain have proven themselves to be true warriors of the road. Blazing through the US with their brand of gear-shifting balls-to-the-wall music that incorporates all things heavy -ATG defies categorization as they seamlessly blur the lines of punk, rock, doom and thrash.With the release of their first self-titled full-length in 2009, ATG was an immediate hit -garnering an intensive local fan base playing 50 shows throughout Michigan. With their intense live show and energized fan base they were introduced to touring life by Hellmouth and The Meatmen, and began their transformation into a fully-functioning road act. The boys in ATG have yet to look back.After 75 dates in 2011, ATG followed up with 2012’s Motor City Speed Rock and 150 dates in support. Their efforts caught the attention of Self-Destructo Records, who in 2013 released their 3rd full-length,Surrounded By Snakes to such acclaim that they re-leased Motor City Speed Rock on 10” as well. Maintaining a DIY tour ethic, ATG built a national fan base with their bare hands -quenching the thirst for fast and heavy rock and roll throughout the land. With 750 dates and counting since hitting the road in 2011, ATG has also toured alongside an impressive assemblage of notable acts including -Zeke, Mothership, Bongzilla, Speedealer,Nashville Pussy, Valient Thorr, , Atomic Bitchwax, Mos Generator, Anvil, Night Demon, Black Cobra Church of Misery, Guttermouth, The Meatmen, The Koffin Kats, Voodoo Glow Skulls,Zoroaster, Hellmouth, The Hookers, Beast in the Field, Lo-Pan and many more.ATG’s heavily anticipated 4th full length entitled Road Warriors was released on July 31st on Self-Destructo, and pushed them further into the Rock/metal/punk world, taking fans from all sides that like loud and pure rock and roll. Selling out two pressings fastly, Road Warriors solidified them in the modern Speed-rock realm and got international attention.Their 5th full length album, and their first on Ripple Music, “Cheated Death” is a true to form rock n roll album blending their love for punk, metal, and all things rock n roll.
