Gwar Pay Tribute To The Late Flattus Maximus With New Album

Metal Blade Records have set a September 17th release date for Gwar's new studio album, "Battle Maximus," which the group's first studio album release since the death of longtime guitarist Flattus Maximus.

"This album is both a tribute to Flattus and a telling of the next chapter in the story of Gwar," says Gwar frontthing Oderus Urungus. "The combo of the brand new album and show should satisfy even the most hardcore Flattus devotee with the fact that Gwar's slay-skills are as supreme as ever, and the band stands poised to embark on our most earth-shattering world tour yet.

"We have mourned, we have honored, and now it's time to f**king Devastate in the name of Flattus and the supreme entity
that is Gwar.

"This is our first record in our brand-new Slave Pit Studios, which Flattus had a lead role in designing, but without him we had no one left to twiddle the buttons, much less play the blazing metal leads and provide the musical direction that rescued Gwar from the depths of clown-band obscurity. I mean, Balsac is no slouch, but Flattus' departure left a huge hole in our band. We had no choice. We had to blow the Horn of Hate..."

New Gwar-tarist, Pustulus Maximus adds, "It is a highlight of my corpse-littered life to join my Scumdog brothers and continue the legendary legacy of the Maximus clan. I am not so happy that Oderus vandalized my space-ship, effectively marooning me on Earth, but f**k it...it's time to ROCK!"
