GWAR Explores BLÓTHAR's Origins With Heavy Metal Heyday Throwback "Berserker Mode"

Enter the viking cow beast.

Gwar 2022

Gwar will release their first new album in five years The New Dark Ages on June 3, and is now streaming the very heavy metal new single "Berserker Mode." The song explores the origin story of vocalist Berserker Blóthar and kicks off with a drum fill that feels reminiscent of "Riding On The Wind" by Judas Priest. Which is pretty cool.

"This is my origin story, about transforming into a drug-jacked unpredictable liability on the battlefield," said vocalist Blóthar. "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!!"

Pre-orders for The New Dark Ages are available here. Gwar will hit the road this May with Goatwhore, The Native Howl, and Nekrogoblikon. Get those dates below.
