GWAR Considering Country EP to Coincide With Graphic Novel2 min read
Before this yr, GWAR introduced that their most current album, The New Dark Ages, would occur with a companion graphic novel titled GWAR in the Duoverse of Absurdity. But may that graphic novel now spawn off its individual companion as nicely? That’s what The Berserker Blothar prompt while talking with Robb Flynn on the No F’n Regrets podcast (heard under), and living up to the “absurdity” prompt in the graphic novel title, that companion EP might just be built up of country songs.
In the new graphic novel, the band is being “sucked off into an alternate universe to do fight with their evil twins and the specter of rogue technological know-how,” in accordance to Blothar. He then even more explained (as transcribed by Metallic Injection), “That [alternate universe] Gwar is a state band. So I have been like, contemplating about… I’m functioning on some place tunes just to have. I feel it would be humorous to do an EP of Gwar executing some country music. I you should not know what it really is gonna be like, but it is been enjoyable to mess around with and think about.”
GWAR as a nation band? It definitely would not be the initially time a metal or hard rock musician has toyed with the plan. Aaron Lewis has carved out a pretty thriving career in state when he’s not carrying out with Staind and Child Rock has walked that line among rock and nation reasonably often. As well as even heavier functions these kinds of as DevilDriver, Inquiring Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop, Behemoth’s Nergal and more are dipping their toes into place music in new decades.
And it goes both strategies with nation-leaning acts these types of as the Zac Brown Band, Jelly Roll and Hardy absolutely rocking out with heavier materials that’s captured the rock viewers in excess of the very last several many years.
But in advance of GWAR go nation, they are going to provide their model of comprehensive-on pummeling and spewing heaviness with The New Darkish Ages which is because of on June 3, with cassette and vinyl choices to abide by on Sept. 16. Pre-orders can be uncovered right here. As for GWAR in the Duoverse of Absurdity, you can pre-order that via the Z2 Comics web page.
