GWAR Officially Reveal New Guitarist Pustulus Maximus

Posted by on October 1, 2012

Back in August, Dave Brockie revealed the identity of GWAR’s new guitarist, only to get humiliated by his master/alias Oderus Urungus. But this morning, slightly less than a year after the passing of Cory Smoot (Flattus Maximus), it’s been officially announced that GWAR’S new scumdog is Pustulus Maximus.

In addition to giving fans their first look of the guitarist (as seen above), Pustulus gave the following statement regarding replacing his cousin Flattus:

“At this point I have nothing to say to the press, even though I am talking to you. I will let my guitar speak for itself. But let me add that I am blood-sworn to honor the legacy of the great Flattus and indeed the whole Maximus tribe. I didn’t come here to fuck around. HAIL FLATTUS!”

Oderus gave a little bit more of a background regarding how Pustulus came to the group, and confirmed that other members of the Maximus tribe will appear on the forthcoming new album:

“Many of the tribe had fought and even played in bands with Flattus, and we began to get messages from across the stars. The Scumdogs were coming! Coming to Earth to lay tracks on our new album, and pay tribute to the mighty Flattus. Soon the War-Barges of Maximus tribe members began to appear in Earth’s orbit…and land outside our great temple! Bubonis, Infectitcus, Fartacus, and many more-all have participated in the creation of the songs that shall be on our new album, which will be out sometime next year.  But it was not until the hulking form of Pustulus appeared at the studio door, bloody guitar in hand, that we knew we had our new member. Here was a being that was supposedly born with a guitar in his fist, which of course resulted in the death of his beloved mother, whose body he immediately devoured. If anyone can replace our beloved comrade, it is this foul creature. Because he can fucking shred.

Pustulus (aka Cannabis Corpse/Antietam 1862 guitarist Brent Purgason) will be making his live debut with GWAR on the Fate Of Chaos tour. However, The Onion’s excellent A.V. Club will be giving fans their first taste of Pustulus’ shredding skills, as they are expected to premiere a song from GWAR tomorrow.
