GWAR'S "Bloody Pit of Horror" Opens To Public, Discarded Fetuses Welcome
For Immediate Release November 9, 2010

NEW ALBUM IN STORES TODAY ON METAL BLADE RECORDS

GWAR's remorseless 25th Anniversary rolls towards it's bitter conclusion as perhaps its most significant milestone is reached--the release of the band's self-proclaimed "heaviest yet" album, GWAR's "Bloody Pit of Horror", out today on Metal Blade records. After a full on media onslaught for the past four months, and now in the midst of a three-month tour, your Lords and Masters are finally allowing us to experience "The Bloody Pit of Horror" in its full form.

"This album is the follow-up to last year's "Lust in Space", and the capper of our 25th Anniversary Slay-a-Bration…which I am pretty sure everybody is sick of hearing about," said GWAR lead singer and still FOX correspondent, Oderus Urungus. "This record is a throwback to an age when bands actually gave a shit about their fans and released albums pretty much once a year. When a "new album" was actually a series of original compositions instead of a bunch of regurgitated re-mixes. And the title, though stolen, is an homage to a time when horror films were made with style and care, not driven by corporation whoredom and CG trickery. It is a hateful attack upon all things alive. It is the new GWAR album."

He continued:
"Finally the day has come…and we shall see if the human slaves of GWAR are truly worthy of that title. For this is much more than a mere album, this is a chance for the human race to break the bloody chains of bondage and join their masters, GWAR, in our quest to subject the entire universe to complete degradation. Our new album has finally been let loose upon the world and all you have to do to join our zombie army is buy the record, get your ass to a GWAR show, and join us in the "Bloody Pit of Horror"!
