GWAR is streaming the song "Let Us Slay" on the band's MySpace page.
Commented GWAR's lead singer Oderus Urungus, "This song deals with the human race’s lust for blood, all the while maintaining the lie of 'Thou shalt not kill'... It calls upon the humans to embrace their love of death (and therefore GWAR), shed their hypocritical trappings, and proceed with the apocalypse. It's going to happen anyway, so they might as well enjoy it!"
There are unconfirmed reports that "Let Us Slay" will be the new album's first video track, to be directed by Dave Brodsky, who has previously worked with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, SUICIDE SILENCE and WARBRINGER, among others.
"Let Us Slay" is currently playing on Sirius/XM's Liquid Metal, and this Friday, July 24, at 6 p.m. PST, Oderus will appear on the syndicated radio show "Chaos With Full Metal Jackie". He'll be there for the world premiere of the track "Damnation Under God". This is the only place where this song can be heard prior to the album's release.
