Then tune in on Tuesday for a full review of the party in Richmond, Virginia featuring GWAR, Municipal Waste, Pig Destroyer, X-COPS, Warbeast, Battlecross, Wilson, & more!

In the meantime, you can listen to the pre-show interview from last week (below):

Additional 4th Annual GWAR-B-Q Details Announced

Slave Pit Inc., creators of GWAR and a slew of other naughty products, today announced new details regarding the summer’s most eagerly anticipated entertainment apocalypse, the 4th Annual GWAR-B-Q, to be held August 17 at Hadad’s Water Park in Richmond, Va. Attendees can now add not one but TWO new social events to be held the same weekend as the GWAR-B-Q – the “B4-B-Q” (to be held the night before at The Canal Club), and the “GWA-fter Party” (after the GWAR-B-Q, for those of you who are morons). In addition, the directors of GWAR’s coveted “Spew-O-Lympics”, a centerpiece event of every GWAR-B-Q, released a statement regarding this year’s event and the incredible prize package some lucky Spew-lympian will ultimately attain. A full feast of fun awaits the teeming masses as Richmond prepares for the most action-packed weekend in the glorious history of the GWAR-B-Q!

Artist Rendition of Typical GWAR Fan Before and After GWAR-B-Q

On Friday, Aug.16, the festivities begin with the “B4-B-Q”, a power-packed line-up of brutal bands to be held at Richmond’s venerated Canal Club, which for the last two years has hosted the Cory Smoot Memorial Show. Admission is FREE to any GWAR-B-Q ticket holder, so be sure to bring a copy of your ticket, or a receipt, or the actual ticket (if you are an idiot). Check the “B4-B-Q” event page on the official GWAR Facebook page for more information.

Hosted by the personal Slaves of Oderus and Balsac, Dave Brockie and Mike Derks, doors open at 7 and the line-up consists of, in no particular order:

Apocalypse Dudes / RVA

U.S. Bastards / RVA

Savage Attack / RVA

Bloody Crackdown / RVA

Red Box Money Cult / Roanoke

Rong / Wilmington

Stuck Backwards / Norfolk

With GWAR, Municipal Waste, Corrosion of Conformity, Pig Destroyer, and the reunion of the legendary X-Cops, this years’ bill is possibly the greatest yet assembled in the blood-spattered history of GWAR’s ever-expanding festival. So this year’s Spew-O-Lympics intends to match this majesty with the most epic contest yet conceived, with events scheduled to include the “King of the Swing”, “Beware of the Blob”, with the climactic battle for supremacy (and valuable prizes) waged on the  “Sperm and Slide”. This years contest will be limited to a lucky 25 entrants, who must sign-up in advance via GWAR’s Facebook page. Look for more details on the official GWAR Facebook page .

And if that’s not enough filthy fun for you, the fine folks at Slave Pit have scheduled one last event that should satiate even the most unappeasable bohab’s desire to bask in the dubious glory of all things GWAR–the “GWA-fter Party”. Held on Saturday, August 17 at Balliceaux, in Richmond, VA., and hosted by the internationally matchless DJ Pari, the event is free not only to GWAR-B-Q ticket holders but also everybody else in the entire world. Doors are at ten, and look for more information at the “GWA-fter Party” events page on the official GWAR Facebook page/

LORD DYING Streaming New Album

LORD DYING come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff.  A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other LORD DYING gives something less than a fuck. They are a metal band with members of Black Elk , Portals, Le Force, and Cremains, who in their short, one year’s time as a band have shared the stage with Red Fang, Down, Unsane, Yob, Valient Thorr, Ghost and many others.

LORD DYING’s debut Summon the Faithless is set for release July 9 via Relapse Records.  The album will be available in CD, LP and digital formats, and is available for pre-order HERE.

The band is giving fans a chance to hear Summon the Faithless in its entirety a week before it is released.  Crave Online, is hosting an exclusive stream of the album HERE.

In addition to the band’s Album Release Show on July 9 in Portland, OR at the White Owl Social Club, and headlining North American tour dates, LORD DYING also announced a summer tour with Howl. The band also confirmed a festival appearance at Phil Anselmo’s inaugural Housecore Horror Film Fest alongside Pig Destroyer, Down, Repulsion and many others!  All dates found below.

After releasing a self-titled EP in 7″ form, the dudes kicked it up a notch, heading out on national tours with Witch Mountain followed by a long trek with label-mates Red Fang and Black Tusk. Fast forward to 2013 and LORD DYING are poised to be the new heavyweight champions of metal.  Smashing the riffs of High On Fire into the groove of Kylesa, LORD DYING delivered one of the most impressive metal debuts in a long, long time. A young band that matured well beyond their years into a fully developed titanic heavy metal machine, LORD DYING’s new album is poised to be one of the best debuts of 2013.
