Track Of The Day: GWAR
The mighty GWAR, part of an ancient alien race called The Scumdogs Of The Universe, release new album Bloody Pit Of Horror on Monday, November 29. And they provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day here.
GWAR’s history goes back to 1985, when the Richmond, Virginia band were formed. Inventing a background inspired by sci fi and horror, they’re renowned for a crazed B-movie stage set and costumes that’s part Alice Cooper, part Roger Corman, part Edward D. Wood Jnr. and always hilarious. The band revel in gore and goo, and gleefully drenched the front rows of their audience in various ‘salacious secretions’.
The current core line-up is Oderus Urungus (vocals), Flattus Maximus (lead guitar/backing vocals), Balsac The Jaws Of Death (rhythm guitar/backing vocals). Beefcake The Mighty (bass/backing vocals) and Jizmak Da Gusha (drums). There are various other ‘creatures’ and ‘slaves’ who are part of the GWAR entourage as well.
Bloody Pit Of Horror is their 13th album. Now you can download the song The Bloody Pit Of Horror Pt 1. Zombie’s March for free right here.
