GWAR Releases New Song 'Berserker Mode'
GWAR has released a new song called "Berserker Mode". The track is taken from the band's upcoming album, "The New Dark Ages", which will arrive on CD/digital June 3 and vinyl and cassette on September 16 via GWAR's own Pit Records. The visualizer for the song features the first animated art cells from the band's upcoming graphic novel "GWAR In The Duoverse Of Absurdity".
GWAR vocalist Blöthar The Berserker states: "This is my origin story, about transforming into a drug-jacked unpredictable liability on the battlefield. But like me, it has a softer side, a tale of the struggle of becoming my authentic self…a sexy, multi-donged, vajazzzled, Viking cow beast known as… The Berserker Blóthar!!"
"The New Dark Ages" chronicles GWAR's adventures in the Duoverse, where the band rediscovers old powers such as Blöthar's terrifying Berserker Mode, and encounter new allies, such as the murderous maven known as The Cutter. Along the way, they battle the living monuments of a lost cause and armies of undead soldiers who rise again to fight a new civil war.
