# Festival performance
GWAR‘s latest album, “The Blood of Gods”, was released in October 2017 via Metal Blade. The disc was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Ronan Chris “Lord God” Murphy and was made available in standard CD, 2LP colored vinyl and digital formats.
Dave Brockie, who fronted GWAR under the name Oderus Urungus, was found dead in his home in Richmond, Virginia in March 2014. According to Virginia’s State Medical Examiner’s Office, he died from acute heroin toxicity by accidental means.
Brockie was last remaining original member of GWAR, which was founded 35 years ago. He was 50 years old.
The satirical metal band earned a following for its macabre, over-the-top costumes, offensive lyrics and graphic, gore-soaked shows, in which the bandmembers performed as the descendants of alien warriors who arrived on Earth to enslave and slaughter the human race.
