To say I was a little nervous seeing GWAR for the first time was an understatement, to be honest, I was terrified!! If you have never seen them live, you are missing out. There are a couple rules when seeing GWAR – 1. If you get offended easily, STAY HOME!! 2. DO NOT wear anything nice if you are planning to be up front. You will come home covered in blood and other bodily fluids.
The show was a little different than I expected because the lead singer Blothar the Berserker was absent from the show. Lead guitarist Pustulus Maximus took over on vocal duties with Balsac the Jaws of Death on rhythm guitar, Beefcake the Mighty on bass, and Jizmak Da Gusha on drums.
GWAR puts on a show unlike anything you have ever seen from the decapitation of the President, to be fair he did try to stop the show, to many other things you just must see to believe. GWAR is on The Black Death Rager World Tour and are getting ready to release their newest album The New Dark Ages on June 3rd.
