Intergalactic metal legends GWAR will once again defrost themselves from their Antarctic lair to play their annual GWAR-B-Q on Aug. 17. The fourth edition of GWAR's annual meet-and-eat may sport the event's best lineup to date, featuring Corrosion of Conformity, Municipal Waste, Pig Destroyer, Cannabis Corpse, Loincloth, and of course, GWAR!
Intergalactic metal mongers GWAR are holding a mouthwatering event to kick off the latest leg of their 'Fate or Chaos' tour. Along with celebrating the great mass of death the act are certain to spread, GWAR will also use their 'Meat and Meet' to premiere their 'GWAR-B-Q' sauce, concocted by the hands of guitarist Balsac, the Jaws of Death.
The metal community lost an essential piece of its foundation in the early morning of Dec. 23 with the death of Ministry / Rigor Mortis / Revolting Cocks guitarist Mike Scaccia. While demonstrating his shredding abilities with Rigor Mortis to celebrate the 50th birthday of vocalist Bruce Corbitt, Scaccia collapsed onstage from a heart attack, later being pronounced dead at a Dallas hospital. Perhaps needing some time to collect his thoughts, GWAR singer Dave 'Oderus Urungus' Brockie has just written a long tribute to his fallen friend.
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus was the guest on Full Metal Jackie's radio this past weekend. The menacing monster talked all about the 2012 presidential campaign, new guitarist Pustulus Maximus, Hurricane Sandy and more. Check out Full Metal Jackie's full chat with GW
It still doesn't seem real that Beastie Boys member Adam 'MCA' Yauch passed away earlier this year. As a part of one of modern music's most definitive group, the man was an innovator of the highest order. There has been countless tributes paid to MCA since his death, and the latest homage was delivered with style by GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus and current tourmates Cancer Bats, as they came together for a performance of the Beastie Boys classic 'Sabotage.'
Intergalactic metallers GWAR provide planet Earth with a number of generous contributions, and although the band tends to hate the human race, they certainly provide us with an entertaining alternative to our typically mundane existence. Along with amusing us with their music and iconic stage show, GWAR have created another must see piece of amusement, as the band recently documented pre-Halloween round of trick-or-treating.
When Gwar comes to town, all of the earthlings know to break out their white t-shirts and get ready for some gore, as these talented alien warlords put on one hell of a show. Earlier this week New Yorkers got a serious treat as DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder graced the stage with Gwar at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg.
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus is in the upper ranks when it comes to tearing humans apart both physically and orally. When he's not ripping the limbs off celebrities and disemboweling politicians onstage, Oderus' favorite pasttime is bashing those he feels are inferior to himself. In this most recent display, Oderus goes after both Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, while taking the credit for Slipknot's existence.
