Out of everyone who wants to destroy planet Earth, the members of GWAR are easily our favorites. Spewed forth on the band's 2004 album, 'War Party,' GWAR make their intentions morbidly clear in the opening track, 'Bring Back the Bomb.'
It was on Nov. 3, 2011 that beloved GWAR guitarist Cory 'Flattus Maximus' Smoot departed our galaxy. Since that day, GWAR have shared the grieving process with their fans, continuing on as a four-piece ever since Smoot's passing and dedicating every live show to Smoot by placing his guitar onstage under a spotlight. Although there was some question as to whether GWAR would recruit a new guitarist, the band have just announced the addition of intergalactic shredder Pustulus Maximus, known on Planet Earth as Brent Purgason.
GWAR are back at full strength! Singer Oderus Urungus has revealed the band has found a replacement for late guitarist Cory Smoot (Flattus Maximus), and will announce the new member of the band in just a few days.
Intergalactic metal merchants GWAR are set to pillage the Earth once again with their announcement of a fall North American 2012 tour. Coming along for the ride will be DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder.
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus recently lashed out at the American mainstream media for largely ignoring the arrest of Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe on apparent manslaughter charges in Prague, Czech Republic. The always opinionated Urungus lashed out in a series of tweets, calling for further coverage to increase awareness of Blythe's unfortunate situation.
