The Blood of Gods Mythos:
The story of GWAR is carved across the history of this barren and hopeless planet, but GWAR themselves are not of this world... their story begins in the deepest reaches of outer space. Long ago, the beings who would become the rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe. For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master. But one by one, each future member of the band earned a glaring reputation for being an intergalactic fuck-up. And so, they were banished, sent away on a fool’s errand to conquer an insignificant shitball floating in a dark corner of the universe; the planet Earth. Once here, GWAR shaped the face of the globe, destroying and rebuilding the natural world, and giving rise to all of human history. Aliens to some, gods and demons to others, our erstwhile Scumdogs fucked apes to create the human race, and this fateful unplanned pregnancy would prove to be truly disastrous!
Sounding like a relic of an era when fuzz-drenched hard rock was delivered with greasy swagger and reckless abandon, Crobot were formed in 2012 by guitarist Chris Bishop and singer Brandon Yeagley. From their home base of Pottsville, Pennsylvania, the pair self-released an EP, The Legend of Spaceborne Killer, before solidifying their lineup with brothers Jake and Paul Figueroa, who handle bass and drums, respectively. Crobot set about refining their crunchy, riff-driven sound, and in 2013 they signed on with Wind-Up Records, which released the quartet's groove-heavy, self-titled EP in 2014.
