Look Mom, No Hands! #TWRradio goes solo

The Welding Room radio program made its on air debut sometime in 1994.

Over the years, Rik Johnson managed to trick various radio stations into opening the doors to #TWRradio

Obviously, when it came to terrestrial radio, content & language were issue to behold, but since the program graduated from traditional airways to an internet/non-traditional exclusive medium, dirty words & such were no longer an issue… Although, it’s a rarity for Johnson himself to swear on-air.

Anyhow, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo (not really. Purely coincidence), #TWRradio Family will officially remove the training wheels tonight!

GWAR Guarantees Orgasm for All Who Attend GWAR BQ

EVENTS, RULES, COSTUME CONTEST, SPEW Olympics, and FAQ

That’s right, your lords and masters GWAR announced today that all humans who show up at this year’s GWAR-B-Q are guaranteed an orgasm. Of course, for most of you this will amount to a pathetic dribble in your already stained underpants as you die at the hands of GWAR, but all sales are final!

This year’s GWAR B-Q is a three day celebration of all things GWAR marking the band’s 30th year with a weekend long Birthday Bash on August 14th, 15th and 16th. As in years past, GWAR-B-Q is more than a rock concert, think of it as a field day of hatred and death, with a full program of special events and attractions designed to lure humans to their deaths.

spew_olympics copy.jpg

This year will see the return of the “Spew-O-Lympics”, a semi-aquatic-flail-fest of despair! Wanna-be contestants are required to submit a short essay on why they feel they should be considered to participate in this hallowed event. Longer than 200 words ensures immediate disqualification (and dismemberment). The band themselves will read these essays while taking a dump, and judge the top selections. Find out how to enter at https://www.facebook.com/SpewOlympics. The winner goes home with a Blakhart BKT6FR guitar!

skate.jpg
Also returning this year is the GWAR-B-Q, Rolling Wheels of DeathSkate Park. In an effort to bump up the number of life altering casualties, GWAR has added a second half pipe that is 6′ tall and 12′ wide with a 7′ transition.  Remember you must be 18 to enter the park and will have to sign a waiver to be able to participate.

fbm.jpg

The insane freaks from the FBM Bike Co. will also be back again with multiple bike ramps to propel hapless Bohabs high into the air, just to come crashing down into the inky depths of Hadad’s Lake.

CryptofChaos_Web.jpg

Prepare to visit the “Crypt of Chaos”, the GWAR-themed horror experience! Combining Slave Pit’s demented artistry and the pedigree of Tim Bunch’s House of Horrors. This will be one of the sickest, most terrifying experiences of your brief and miserable life. Once inside, you will beg for release, and if you are lucky enough to survive, you will emerge a bloody, broken shell of your former self. Enter at your own risk!

costume.jpg

Also, for the first time in its sordid history, the 6th annual GWAR B-Q will host a GWARRIOR Costume Contest! We all know GWAR doesn’t wear costumes, but they encourage you to show up to the event wearing the most outrageous and deranged costume you can come up with for the chance to win a variety of excellent prizes including a BKT6FR GUITAR from BLAKHART, tons of SWAG from MONSTER and a GWAR B-Q skate deck. The winner will also be presented live on stage in front of the festival crowd. The contest takes place on the Scumdog Stage and will be judged by Tony Foresta of local thrash metal masters, Municipal Waste. More info will be announced soon in the events section at www.gwarbq.com.

Black Metal veterans & more featured on MYRKUR album 

MYRKUR Announces New Album, M Out August 21st on Relapse Records. 

http://relapse.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0d7dba5a27266057cc106ad66&id=374e42e051&e=5cf460940e

On the heels of MYRKUR’s universally praised debut EP, comes M, the Danish black metal phenom’s highly anticipated first full-length album. Recorded in various locations of Oslo, Norway (including renowned artist Emanuel Vigeland’s Museum) with co-producer Garm – the mastermind behind black metal legends Ulver – M finds MYRKUR achieving the grandiose heights that everyone hoped she would climb to. The melodies are lush and the brutality devastating. M is a highly developed metal masterpiece that blends second-wave black metal, Nordic folk music, classical instrumentation and haunting choirs. Rounded out on record by members of Mayhem & Nidingr plus a guest appearance from Christopher Amott, formerly of Arch Enemy, MYRKUR has quickly established herself as one of the best and most intriguing acts in metal today.

M will see its worldwide release August 21st via Relapse alongside her first ever live performance, headlining the black stage at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival with Deafheaven and Tombs. Numerous other festival appearances around Europe are planned throughout the year. Physical and digtal pre-orders are now available and include a special deluxe LP package containing an exclusive bonus track of the “Skadi” demo.
