The Blood of Gods is the upcoming fourteenth album by thrash metal band Gwar, due to be released on October 20, 2017 by Metal Blade Records. It is the band's first album without founding member Dave Brockie, who portrayed Oderus Urungus, due to his death from a heroin overdose on March 23, 2014. The album is also the first to feature Michael Bishop since 1999's We Kill Everything, albeit portraying a new character, lead singer Blothar the Berserker, as opposed to his role as the original Beefcake the Mighty.
An experimental, progressive rock duo formed in Ithaca, NY. The rhythmically minded musicians composed most of their music in a damp basement, but now spend their time sending tracks to each other from opposite sides of the world.
Following the release of their basement-recorded experimental album "Yesterday’s Dreams" in 2015, the duo has returned with a 2017 follow up "Foreign Man", recorded across Seoul and New York City. “Foreign Man” combines music, art, and story to chronicle the journey of a man eager to learn a new world, but deeply lost in its complicated mechanisms.
