30 years have passed since GWAR was awoken from the prison of their Antarctic slumber in 1985. In those 3 decades, they have shaped the music and culture of mankind using broadswords and guitars, carving the human race to more closely resemble their demented visage and psyche. The Scumdogs will celebrate their 30th anniversary (or as the Romans would call it, their XXX anniversary) by releasing a box set showcasing the musical and artistic genius of this misfit group of extraterrestrial mutants that world has come to love almost as much as they fear.

GWAR is immortal and shows no signs of slowing it’s merciless onslaught of the planet Earth. They have reunited with an unstoppable force from their past in the form of the new singer, Blothar, a major contributor to such early GWAR masterpieces as “Hell-O”, “Scumdogs of the Universe”, “This Toilet Earth” and “We Kill Everything”. The GWAR-B-Q, the annual festival held in Richmond VA is going into it’s sixth year and is promising to be the biggest, most extreme to date, and the siren’s call of the GWARbar is luring bohabs from around the world with hopes of being recruited to the ranks of GWAR slaves, but more likely to be ground into Meat Sandwiches in the meat grinder.

The New Haven, CT-based Hatebreed got together in 1993 for the purpose of creating a "back to basics" hardcore band with heavy, metallic guitars, screaming vocals, and 30-second songs. Consisting of Jamey Jasta (vocals), Lou "Boulder" Richards (guitar), Chris Beattie (bass), Sean Martin (guitar), and Rigg Ross (drums), Hatebreed had the chance to play throughout the East Coast while sharing the stage with the likes of Entombed, the Deftones, Slayer, and Napalm Death. By 1997, Victory Records released the quintet's debut full-length, entitled Satisfaction Is the Death of Desire. The group signed with Stillborn/Republic/Universal for 2002's Perseverance and 2003's Rise of Brutality. Supremacy arrived on Roadrunner Records in 2006, featuring new guitarist Frank Novinec (who'd previously spent time playing with Ringworm, Terror, and Integrity). Mike DaRonco - allmusic.com
