GWAR Begrudgingly Appears on Hymns II

on April 20, 2011 | 8 Comments


Risking life and limb, we recently approached intergalactic refugees GWAR about contributing a track to the second installment of Rue Morgue Radio’s Hymns From the House of Horror (available May 1), cleverly titled Hymns From the House of Horror II. After swooning lead singer Oderus Urungus with a pitch that went something like: “We would love to promote your scraps and mutually benefit from their otherwise utterly worthless appeal,” the lead Scumdog agreed to let us feature an epic number from the band’s latest gory opus, Bloody Pit of Horror, so long as we let them torture, humiliate and otherwise psychologically traumatize one of our interns. The quandary proved time-consuming and difficult.

Thirty-seven seconds later, we had our track and the intern was well on his way to being rendered a pile of icky viscera. Unfortunately, we were too busy rocking out to the brain-jarringly awesome slab of thrashy sludge to even observe a moment of silence for the poor sod…I mean, uh, brave and selfless young man.

Please: honour the memory of our courageous and decidedly nameless intern/blood offering by hitting “Like” on the Hymns II Facebook page and downloading Rue Morgue Radio’s Hymns From the House of Horror II for the low, low price of FREE beginning May 1.

    “so long as we let them torture, humiliate and otherwise psychologically traumatize one of our interns.” Wait! What!?!

  2. Ron McKenzie says:

    This news just put a smile on my face.
    Apart from that poor intern… that’s a shame.

  3. Scotty says:

    Pics or it didn’t happen!

  4. Trevor says:

    Oh, it happened. But there was simply no time! And Mike B, fret not…I’m sure an intern couldn’t befall such a fate twice in a row. This was one of the interns right before you. The rest of the them are dead in the basement…you know, for when Last Chance Lance wants to come by and put on one of his “puppet shows.”

  5. April Snellings says:

    37 seconds? What did you guys think about for the other 36?

  6. If i had to be tortured and humiliated by any metal group, i guess it would be GWAR too. Need a new inter? :)

    can’t wait to hear what Rue Morgue deems worthy of our ears!
