Oderus Urungus Makes Record-breaking Fifth Appearance On Fox News’ “Red Eye”

ANNIVERSARY ALBUM LUST IN SPACE IN STORES THIS TUESDAY AUGUST 18TH

This just in from Slave Pit Headquarters! The world’s first and only “Intergalactic Correspondent”, the ever-affable Oderus Urungus, made his fifth and most memorable appearance on Fox News “Red Eye”, hosted by Greg Gutfeld. The appearance went so well in fact that “Red Eye” has given Oderus the opportunity to have more airtime by being a member of the panel for an entire show.

Mr. Urungus had the following to say about this recent development:

“After weeks of scrutiny, the fools…I mean the people at Fox News have decided to give me more airtime. This marks yet another step in the transformation of Oderus from lead singer to leading man-thing. I won’t stop until my career eclipses that of Carrot-top, who will be forced to eat his own genitals in a desperate attempt at publicity. The humans need programs like “The GWAR Show”, or “GWAR TV” or even “Everybody Loves Oderus”. Considering we are GWAR, we are the perfect choice to play ourselves!”

Check out video footage of Oderus’ fifth appearance HERE.

Lust in Space hits stores this Tuesday August 18th and in celebration of their 25th anniversary, GWAR has decided to do something that they have never done before. GWAR is offering autographed copies of their new album for pre-order at www.metalblade.com/gwar/index.html.

Artists’ Addiction Soundtracks Releases “Saw V” Soundtrack

MINISTRY, TESTAMENT, FILTER, SKINNY PUPPY, THE ALMIGHTY, AND THE REVOLTING COCKS ARE AMONG THE BANDS ON THE UNRELENTING, BALLS-TO-THE-WALL SOUNDTRACK

SAW V, THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF THE HORROR MOVIE FRANCHISE, HITS THEATERS OCTOBER 24

September 29. 2008 – “Hello…want to play a game,” those are the immortal words Saw‘s sadistic purveyor of self-imposed twisted justice Jigsaw utters to his victims as they come to. And if you hear those words you’re soon to find yourself in a world of hurt. Back for the fifth installment of the Saw horror series this Halloween (in theaters October 24 to be exact), moviegoers will once again cringe in their seats as blood, guts and body parts are up for grabs.

And because every sick & twisted horror honcho needs an explosive soundtrack, Artists’ Addiction Soundtracks has compiled a list of incendiary artists such as Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Testament, and Revolting Cocks among the 14 tracks for the volatile digital-only release.

What started out as a “little” indie horror movie back in 2004 has turned into a juggernaut go-for-the-throat franchise so gruesome you want to turn away, yet so compelling you just can’t. And fittingly enough, the movie soundtracks have always been amicable counterparts assaulting the senses in a fashion that would make Jigsaw proud.

Adding to the sonic assault to Saw V is Charlie Clouser (ex-Nine Inch Nails), no stranger to the Saw soundtracks, with his cuts “Trap Attacks” and “What It Takes,” as well as Filter’s remix version of “What’s Next.” Other killer songs include: Testament’s “True Believer,” Ministry’s “Death and Destruction (Remix),” Prong’s “The Banishment,” Die Krupps’ “The Dawning of Doom,” Skinny Puppy’s “ugLi” and The Revolting Cocks’ “Wizard of Sextown.”

Artists’ Addiction Soundtracks’ Jonathan Platt says of the Saw V Soundtrack: “We feel that we have put together a collection of songs that really mirrors the chaos onscreen. All of our acts are big fans of the Saw series and were excited to be a part of the soundtrack and I think that energy really comes across.”
