A Band of Orcs, formerly a 5-piece war machine, is now a 4-piece War Machine. Two WarChiefs have fallen in battle or left the Tribe - Hulg ElfR.I.P.per has met his final death after a series of zombie re-animations that always managed to go awry, while late leader and WarChief Gogog Bloodthroat had the misfortune of viewing and embracing the Yellow Sign, which engulfed him in madness.  Since then he has disappeared through a Wyrmhole back to the blasted wastes of Hirntodia where it is rumored he hunts ghosts and demons in eternal rage.

Oog, Cretos, and Gronk! carry the Metal banner of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe forward and return as a Death Metal Quartet, wherein Cretos and Gronk! share bardic vocal-telling roles; the songs have been written for one brutal guitar instead of two; Oog lets loose with the Tribal war drum beat downs; and Srig Foehammer has taken over the Bass playing thunder from Gronk! Shaman who has stepped up to vocal incantations full-time.  Stay tuned for a rawer, more brutal form of tribal orc metal...Hail Gzoroth!!!
