GWAR: Orgasmageddon #1 cover A Sawyer banner

Back in October, I told you all about a new Kickstarter campaign that involved one of the best theatrical stage bands of all time: GWAR! Since then it has become apparent to everyone, up to and including Dynamite Entertainment, that there is a fan base that is in dire need of sustenance! Which brings us to our current news: Dynamite will publish the GWAR: Orgasmageddon comic book series for the masses!

GWAR: Orgasmageddon #1, which is written by Matt Miner (Toe Tag Riot, Critical Hit) along with the members of GWAR, with and art by Jonathan Brandon Sawyer (Welcome Back, Critical Hit), will hit comic book shops, online retailers, and digital platforms this June.

There’s a video below from Dynamite and GWAR, along with all the covers for issue 1 and more details about this exceptional partnership.

GWAR #1- Matt Maguire Cover

GWAR!

Seriously, if that one word doesn’t make you smile and lean forward to read more, then your whole life has been a sham or you’ve been living under a rock. But not a good rock, more like a Nickelback version. Some folks look to KISS or Alice Cooper as leaders in the world of on-stage antics. However, GWAR beats them hands down, along with almost everyone else, for pure entertainment and shock effect. I first saw them thanks to an ex-roommate of mine, John Stange, a life-long fan. So there we were, watching The Skatenigs open up for what turned out to be one of the best shows I saw in the nineties: GWAR live in concert. With goo-spewing guns that shot a variety of substances (don’t ask) into the crowd and a particularly graphic scene involving the disemboweling of a variety of public figure effigies, their presence rivaled that of my own favorite band, Skinny Puppy! I left drenched and smiling; what more could I possibly want? Well, how about a five-issue comic book series from the shock rock metal monsters themselves? That’s right, GWAR comics! And they have named it GWAR: Orgasmageddon, which didn’t surprise me at all. Plus, in addition to the comics, a plethora of GWAR collectibles have been made available to fans. That’s right, this is a Kickstarter fundraiser where you pledge your hard-earned money and help make the concept a reality and you get cool stuff for doing it!

Knotfest 2015 Recap: Day 1

Ides & Jesse Bergen at Knotfest 2015

On October 24th and 25, 2015, my 12-year-old son Jesse and I made our second annual pilgrimage to Slipknot’s giant, weekend-long heavy metal festival Knotfest. The event once again took place at San Manuel Amphitheater at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, California. This is a recap of our experiences on Saturday, October 24.

The event actually kicks off on Friday night with a show just for those who are fortunate enough to be holding camping or VIP passes. We were not among those folks, so we missed out on Sepultura, The Faceless, and several others. A bit of a bummer, but nothing compared to the gut-wrenching decisions that we would have to make later in the weekend with so many quality bands performing opposite each other on the side stages (more on that in a few…).

In Memoriam: Musicians Who Died In 2014

As 2014 is just about at an end, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember the fallen musicians who left us this year. A large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites are among those who have left us in a physical sense, but the memories that they made in the past and the ones that each of their fans have in regards to them will never leave.

A list of some of our (and probably yours as well) fallen heroes is below.

Meet Gwar’s New Female Vocalist Vulvatron

Gwar Vocalist Vulvatron

When Gwar vocalist Dave Brockie passed away earlier this year from an accidental heroin overdose at the age of 50, many thought that it might spell the end of the iconic band of self-proclaimed “alien scumdogs.” But just weeks after sending Brockie’s character Oderus Urungus back to the mother ship with a viking funeral at the annual fan appreciation event GwarBQ, the band has debuted their new lineup.

Instead of trying to replace Brockie in a direct and obvious way, it seems the band has chosen another route entirely — Gwar now features two lead singers and one of whom is a badass Amazonian alien known as Vulvatron. That’s right, in addition to long-running member Blothar taking over some of the vocal duties, Gwar now features what looks to be one of metal’s strongest female front women.

GWAR Send Fallen Leader Oderus Urungus Back To The Mothership With Viking Funeral

Dave Brockie Oderus Urungus

Gwar frontman Dave Brockie was a larger than life figure to his fans, as was his onstage alter ego Oderus Urungus. So when Brockie died of an accidental overdose of heroin on March 23, 2014, the band never dreamed of attempting to pass off someone else in the Oderus costume.

Brockie was laid to rest, eulogized, and mourned at private and public memorials back in the Spring, but the band waited for their annual GwarBQ celebration in their hometown of Richmond, VA, this past weekend to send the scum dog alien that was Oderus Urungus back to the mothership. Fans got to witness a touching tribute to Brockie and his alter ego by friends and fellow musicians, such as Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, followed by a flaming viking funeral send-off of the Oderus costume.

Watch the full video here below.

Gwar Frontman Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus Has Died

Gwar Oderus Urungus Dave Brockie

Dave Brockie, lead vocalist of the metal band Gwar who performed with the Oderus Urungus persona, was found dead in his Richmond, VA, home on Sunday, according to Style Weekly, who reported that the cause of death is not known at this time, but police do not suspect foul play. He was 50.

The musician’s shocking death is the second recent tragedy to strike Gwar. In 2011, the band members found their guitarist Cory Smoot aka Flattus Maximus dead on their tour bus.

In 1984, Brockie founded Gwar, a theatrical thrash metal outfit where its members took on personas – think KISS, but more extreme. The back-story is that the self-proclaimed “Scumdogs of the Universe,” an intergalactic band of chaos warriors, were banished to Earth millions of years ago, now hellbent on destroying the human race and eradicating existence itself. Brockie performed on stage as Oderus Urungus, wearing a humanoid barbarian costume with devil horns and a huge codpiece, and wielding a long sword named “Unt Lick.”
