Interplanetary metal legends GWAR have unleashed a video for The Cutter, a song rescued from the fetid bowels of 15th album The New Dark Ages. which was released in June. 

The video, which features vast amounts of rampaging, violence and blood, also introduces a new member of GWAR's scumdog family, Halestorm leader Lzzy Hale. Lzzy can be witnessed in the video gleefully licking the blade of a large knife and delivering the lines 'It's not my fault / Your blood will pacify my pain / I'll slice your throat / My cure is pouring from your vein' with homicidal aplomb. 

“Lzzy Hale is wonderfully talented," says GAWR leader Blothar. "Few realise she is also an undercover Scumdog who came to Earth with the rest of GWAR aeons ago under her true name Clitaurus Maximus of the Maximus clan. We are delighted to have her voice and image on this work of absolute genius." 

"I, Clitaurus Maximus The She Bull… hereby declare, THE CUTTER as my FIRST feature in a MOTHERFUCKING GWAR SONG!," adds Lzzy, using lots of CAPS, as befits her new role. "Thank you so much to these interplanetary warriors for the much-appreciated bloodletting, and for giving this lil’ beast the opportunity to rear her three ugly heads!”
