Dead Original is a blend of grunge, groove power, simple riffs, melodic hooks and some progressive elements via some tastefully placed odd meters.
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of their classic album Scumdogs of the Universe, your Lords and Masters GWAR are pleased to announce the “Scumdogs XXX Live” live streaming concert event, presented by Liquid Death and Metal Injection.
This one-of-a-kind experience is set for Friday, October 30th with the pre-show starting at 6:00 PM Eastern. The live stream performance kicks off at 8:00 PM Eastern. Tickets and VIP Packages can be purchased at GWAR.net. The show will be available on-demand through November 15th.
“Scumdogs XXX Live” will be a full-fledged GWAR performance and a spectacle the likes of which you have never seen. Your Lords and Masters will celebrate this momentous occasion by ripping through the entire Scumdogs of the Universe album from front to back. Will there be special guests? You’re goddamn right there will be special guests. Are we going to tell you who they are? No we aren’t, but you can find out for yourself on October 30th.
Blōthar the Berserker had this to say about the momentous occasion: “We always wanted to do a concert without an audience in the room. The audience is always the worst part. Well, that and the fact that we’re constantly being attacked by a bunch of assholes while we try to get through a set. Man, I hope none of those old school dicks show up to rain on our glorious parade.”
This past weekend saw GWAR play their first ever drive-in shows at the Diamond in Richmond, VA. For the first time ever, GWAR shot blood and spew all over a parking lot full of bohabs in cars. Could there be more in the works? Stay tuned.
Don’t forget, you can help decide who GWAR will kill on stage for the NEXT 4 years!! Register and VOTE in November. Check your registration.
Italy’s rising hard rock band JAX DIARIES has released a new single titled “Came Down To Say Hi,” which features guest guitarist Diego “DD Lacuna” Cavalotti of goth metal masters LACUNA COIL. Unveiled first at KnotFest.com, the song is accompanied by remarkable video revolving around a shoot out in an old western town.
JAX DIARIES comments on the new single, “The idea behind ‘Came Down To Say Hi’ was to bring fans something pretty unexpected from a band like us and what we wanted to do was basically try to blend together cinema and music. Being able to shoot such a complicated video was a huge accomplishment for us. We travelled back in space and time and with some help from fans we gave life to a place that before this was just a pub, a place to drink some beers in 2020 listening to some hard rock music. These past few days, since the releasing of ‘Came down to say hi’ we kept hearing the same question over and over again, ‘Did you actually shoot the video in America during this Covid 19 pandemic?’ Well, of course not. We were lucky enough to have such a huge and hard working production team behind us who helped make all of this possible and we will never be able to express how grateful we are. From now on the mission of this band and our mission as executive producer and directors of each video will be easier and easier to understand. We are trying to give fans ‘Experiences.’ We really hope fans will enjoy “Came Down To Say Hi” and we hope they’ll stick around ‘cuz we are goin’ to be pretty active from now on.”
JAX DIARIES is an Alternative Rock band born in summer 2019 from the minds of Jaxon and his brother Andrew. The two were part of a Metalcore band called CRY EXCESS who performed around the world supporting artists like PAPA ROACH, KORN and WALLS OF JERICHO among others.
As the brothers sound evolved and they found their footing in the alternative/heavy rock scene, they recruited Andrew and Frankie and formed JAX DIARIES. The newly minted band found near immediate success in 2019 with their debut single “Shine On.”
That success was nearly the beginning and end of things as later that year Jax was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident. He persevered from the hospital bed and continued writing new music with bandmates during daily visits.
On the mend and back in the studio, JAX DIARIES recorded their first full length album in March 2020, with the first new song, “Came Down To Say Hi” providing fans a taste of what’s to come. A year after it was wrapped, the band will release the record in March 2021 and will kickoff a worldwide tour soon after.
