PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow. I can hardly believe that its been thirty years since the world was laid to waste by GWAR and believe it or not, I’ve been listening to the band since this very album and remember playing it on repeat for friends on those drinking cold beers in the Metal Sanctum of my family home. I spun the release on Spotify as I cobbled this news alert together and can say that it seems to have aged well. The parts that shocked me way back when still manage to do that while the parts that I always got a chuckle from still did their part as well. There seems to be a lot of cool stuff packed into this one but its going to run the interested fan about $150 so start planning that overtime and less eating out at fast food places to guarantee you have the extra scratch to offer up to the Lords of Chaos. Chime in down below with what you think about this special edition. See you next time.
It’s hard to believe that five years have gone by since the Metal world lost the talented vision of Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus, leader of the legendary GWAR. Earlier today, news about a monument to his memory was released and I am sharing this with you below so check it out.
The Press Release:
At 2:00 PM on Friday, August 30th, 2019, GWAR will unveil a monument to the band’s co-founder and longtime leader Dave Brockie, which will be set in Richmond, Virginia’s famed Hollywood Cemetery (412 S Cherry St, Richmond, VA). All are invited to the unveiling, and to a free party the next day, August 31st, at the GWARbar (217 W Clay St, Richmond, VA).
