Epic, theatrical bloodletting space aliens GWAR have released a video for the song "Viking Death Machine," which is featured on their 2017 album The Blood of Gods.

The animated clip chronicles "the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world." The video was created by Makinita Silva, an "Ecuadorian masked Luchador who is also an independent 2-D animator."

Band member Blothar described the cartoon carnage in press statement. "Humans, are you ready to ride the 'Viking Death Machine'? Our latest video is a faithful animated schlockumentary depicting my harrowing, blood-drenched defeat of the Load Warriors and the other denizens of Saturday morning raceway hijinx, including all of my fellow bandmates in GWAR. I am delighted to take my rightful place as the King of Cartoon Violence, and champion of the first annual Suck-It-Up-Butter Cup! Watch the video now! It'll make you shit."

GWAR will launch a co-headlining tour with Hatebreed on Oct. 6 in Camden, N.J. The band will remain on the road through Nov. 10 in their adopted hometown (remember, they're space aliens that were buried under the ice in Antarctica) of Richmond, Va. Then, GWAR will play a one-off on New Year's Eve in Norfolk, Va.
