Monster metal legends GWAR have announced their own NFT collection which includes three different NFTs, featuring music and brand new, original digital art from Matt Maguire of GWAR. The effort is a partnership with Fanaply and is being minted and backed on the Ethereum blackhain. Get yours here.
“That’s right bohabs, we now have NFTs,” says the band via an email to fans this morning. “This limited edition collection is available for purchase an hour early, just for those of you on this mailing list. We figured it was about time this puny planet started trading in assets that are accepted throughout the universe so each NFT will be available for direct purchase using both fiat and crypto currency.”
GWAR’s Blóthar adds, “Our manager Sleazy P. Martini tells me that with these NFTs, our fans will get some cool, original, never-before-seen GWAR art, and they can own a little piece of the GWAR universe. He also tells me that if we sell enough of them, I can buy lots of curly fries.”
“We’re thrilled to be bringing limited-edition digital assets to the incredible fans of the iconic band GWAR,” comments Grant Dexter, co-founder and CEO of Fanaply. “NFTs offer bands a new and creative way to express themselves to their fan communities, while allowing those fans to collect, commemorate and celebrate the bands creations via our digital collectibles. Our NFTs are built for fans – they are inclusive, environmentally friendly and offer fans real digital ownership for the first time ever.”
GWAR Official NFT Collection:
Scumdog Legionnaire – Only 10 limited edition NFTs available: The rarest of honors that any human can achieve is to fight (and most likely die) beside the Scumdogs of the Universe. The select few who have achieved this privilege have now become Legend!
Slave of GWAR – Only 50 limited edition NFTs available: Only the cream of the human crop are selected by GWAR to ascend to the status of Slave. In the past, the only way to achieve this honor was through years of physical service to GWAR. Now there is a short cut.
Bohab 4 Lyfe – 250 limited edition NFTs available: Bohabs are humans who worship our Lords and Masters, GWAR. Some claim that the Bohabs are a secret cult, dedicated to chaos and abandon. Some are right. Now you can prove that you are among their ranks with this entry level NFT.

And here’s even more info from the band:
What the hell is a NFT? Good question.
An NFT (non-fungible token) is a digital asset that uses blockchain technology. They are like digital trading cards that verifiably guarantee fan ownership and ensure that only a limited number of each will ever be created. This means that they are scarce and valuable by design and once they’ve been issued, that’s it – no more will ever be created, and you are now able to buy one!
Once I have an NFT, what can I do with it?:
-Add it to your collection
-Share it on social media
-Add it to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay for use at live events
-Resell it on the secondary market to other fans
In the future, owning this NFT might grant you special access to rewards and other exclusives from GWAR. We’ll be sure to communicate with you if and when added features are unlocked.
