GWAR Stream Last Song to Feature Oderus Urungus


We thought we had heard the last of the music from GWAR featuring original, late vocalist Oderus Urungus, but we thought wrong. GWAR are now streaming their 10th anniversary remix of Battle Maximus featuring the song “Tammy, The Swine Queen,” which is their final song with the iconic singer.

The reissue album is also a tribute to their late guitarist, Cory “Flattus Maximus” Smoot.

“Ten years after its initial release, the wounds are just as fresh,” says guitarist BälSäc, the Jaws ‘o Death. “The words that Oderus wrote as a tribute to his fallen Scumdog brother, Flattus Maximus, gain new meaning when heard as the final lyrics he would ever sing. The songs echo in stereo through the twin holes that were left in our hearts by the absence of Oderus and Flattus. This new remix of Battle Maximus breathes new life into this album that demands to be considered as one of Gwar’s greatest.”

Battle Maximus is an important Gwar album,” adds Berserker Blothar. “Recorded as a farewell to guitarist Flattus Maximus, this album was born out of straight pain. As the Scumdog warriors grieved the passing of their brother, they had no way of knowing they were also recording the last album with singer Oderus Urungus. Battle Maximus, then, is on the cusp of the greatest challenge of Gwar’s career. This version has been remixed and remastered and it sounds straight up viscious. I hope you relish it as much as I…”
