The Blood of Gods is the fourteenth album by thrash metal band Gwar. It was 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 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 Blöthar the Berserker, as opposed to his role as the original Beefcake the Mighty.
A new era of GWAR has begun with their first album without the iconic Oderus Urungus. Before we survey the human corpse-littered landscape left in the wake of GWAR’s latest album, The Blood of Gods, there’s some points we have to address. Yes, we’re talking about the death of Dave Brockie, who you all know best as Oderus Urungus, the alien warlord who fronted the band and slaughtered thousands during his 25-plus year reign as the front-thing of the most murderous band in history. Blothar has manned the post since 2014 and while it may seem heresy to replace Oderus (don’t forget, he wanted this band to go on forever), let’s back things up a bit.

GWAR, as you can probably imagine even if you haven’t seen them live, put on one hell of a live show. Couple this with the death of Brockie, the driving creative force and leader of the demon group, and GWAR are still good, but feel as though they’ve truly taken a tumble creatively. Many of the tracks from I’ll Be Your Monster and up to and including F This Place are filler. Ending on If You Want Blood (You Got It), the final track of the album could easily be mistaken for work by KISS; Gene Simmons would be proud. The track is about as cheery as the band can muster and, like most of the album, is entertaining.
On October 20, GWAR will release a new studio album titled "The Blood Of Gods" via Metal Blade Records. The disc is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming
The Blood of Gods came out on the 20th of October via Metal Blade Records and marks the band’s first release since the death of founding member and front man, Oderus Urungus. Oderus Urungus, alternatively known as Dave Brockie, was the vocalist since 1986 before his death in 2014. In his place, now, we have Michael Bishop (Blothar) who had previously been in the band, as bassist almost 2 decades ago. In GWAR today, joining Blothar we have Mike Derks (Balsac the Jaws of Death) on rhythm guitar and Jamison Land (Beefcake the Mighty) on bass. Of course, The Blood of Gods is the first Gwar album without the band’s fallen leader, Oderus Urungus. The title of the album refers to the loss of Oderus and the struggles and triumphs that produced the new sound of the band. Born of adversity, The Blood of Gods is a sonic sca. question asked and answere. eath cannot kill Gwar.
