Gwar: “Madness at the Core of Time”

Gwar has just released the first song from their upcoming album Battle Maximus.  The song is called “Madness at the Core of Time” and the full album will be available on September 17th.  Battle Maximus will be the band’s first album since the death of Cory Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus.  While Cory was the last of a long line of people to play the role, he played the role the longest.  The band decided to retire the character with Cory’s passing.  In the Gwar mythology Flattus has taken a spaceship and returned to “Planet Home”.

New guitarist Brent Purgason (formerly of Cannibal Corpse) debuts on this album as Pustulus Maximus.  Pustulus is supposed to be Flattus’ cousin.  Long time on-again, off-again band member Casey Orr will not be returning as Beefcake the Mighty; instead Beefcake will be portrayed by Jamison Land.  Orr has left Gwar for other projects in the past and always returned, so I hope this leave is temporary as well.
