In an interview with Metal Kaos, Oderus dropped the working album title and had this to say about what to expect from the album.

As for the album, I think it’s a heavy album, a metal album. I think it goes back to all different elements of the band. Is it a complete return to songs like ‘Fish Fuck’ or ‘Fucking An Animal’? No. Does it have some of that same sense of humor? Yes. Does it rip as a metal record? Yes. Most definitely. Is it afraid to be silly? No. Does it tell a story? Yes. Do I think GWAR fans are gonna love it? Yeah, because I think it’s the best album we’ve ever written. That’s what we set out to do, and that’s the only thing you can do after going through a tragedy like losing a guitar player, a friend, a guy who was that important to your music. It’s do-or-die time with this band and that will be what happens with the next GWAR album. GWAR will always live forever, but will GWAR always put out metal albums? A lot of that will be decided when we see how people react to our new record.

The album title has been changed to 'Battilus Maximus'. They performed a new song on AXS tv last night and apparently they revealed the cover art and said it should be out this fall.

I can't find anything from the show right now but it should pop up online soon.

When I first heard the "Mad at the Sun" title I thought of this:


If that was the title, how awesome would it have been if they used that image and photoshopped the sun over the cloud and changed the headline?

Here's the live footage of "Bloodbath", "Madness at the Core of Time", and "They Swallowed the Sun" that was shown on tv. I expected the new stuff would sound different but i'm surprised with the direction they're taking. Bloodbath and Madness sound like they could have been on We Kill Everything. They Swallowed the Sun is more like the last 5 albums.
