The maniacs at Slave Pit Inc. have raised more than $6,000 through www.kickstarter.com to create a new episode of the animated series "The Blood Vomits," which tracks the dark ages-era exploits of Mad Dog, Nails and The Vicar.

The money will be used to create a new full-length webisode of the show, which features GWAR singer Oderus Urungus as Mad Dog, Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe as Nails and Municipal Waste's Tony Foresta as The Vicar.

"I heartily approve of our slaves desperate and pathetic attempts to delude themselves into thinking they can do anything other than scrape dried fecal matter off my armored war-suit," Oderus said. "But I can't help but notice there still is some time to pledge more money...so empty those wallets, steal those credit cards, beat the homeless. Any extra money raised is ear-marked to provide 'shards' for the production crew, so you can be sure it is going to a good cause! And giving your money to GWAR is the only way you can get an 'I'm a Producer of Filth' Blood Vomits t-shirt."

Blood Vomits producer, Mike Derks, said: "We are pleased and delighted and very grateful to our amazing fans and the people at kickstarter.com. Slave Pit has always loved producing side projects, like the X-Cops and DBX, and this is every bit as exciting. The concept of artists getting non-recoupable advances directly from the fans who support them should make a lot of people nervous. This kind of thing, when combined with the limitless and free access that the internet provides, ushers in a new level of empowerment to artists everywhere, and I am sure this is just the beginning."

As for GWAR, they've been booked to play the Download Festival in England June 10-12th.
