Image of Gwar


It has been 25 years since the heavy metal holocaust known as GWAR burst upon our world in an explosion of blood, guts, and screaming steel. In this time they have revealed themselves not only as the un-disputed masters of “shock rock”, but also as an international cultural icon that has both touched the lives, and in some cases ruined the clothing, of many thousands of people. ...

Editorial Reviews

After a triumphant European tour that includede appearances at the With Full Force and Dour Festivals, Antarctic rock gods GWAR have returned to their ice-bound fortress, to drink blood and begin work on their newest and most gut-crushing album yet. That s right, right now, at the sorta halfway point of GWAR s special two-year long 25th Anniversary Slay-a-Bration, Slave Pit Inc. and Metal Blade Records are proud to announce the title of GWAR's new album.

Our new album is called Bloody Pit of Horror, said ODERUS URUNGUS, front-thing and leading female impersonator. We are fully aware that there is a movie of the same title, I assure you it has nothing to do with it, save the title, which we stole from them. But you see, we're calling it GWAR's Bloody Pit of Horror , and that's a little different, so hopefully we won't get sued!

The new album is reportedly heavy as frick, and features songs like Hail to Genocide , Storm is Coming , and Tick-Tits . That s a song about a chick whose breasts are covered in ticks... big fat gray puffy ones , said Oderus. A full track listing and official release date is expected soon.

GWAR's new album, 'GWAR's Bloody Pit of Horror' is out this fall on Metal Blade Records. In the meantime look for GWAR back in Europe this summer, at the Bloodstock fest and more! And follow GWAR, buy GWAR merchandise, and jack-off on a picture of GWAR at...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lift with caution.....brutally HEAVY!!! November 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
WOW!!! Although the last release Lust in Space was a very solid album, I never expected this. Dare I say this is the single hardest Gwar album EVER!? This album is even heavier than Violence Has Arrived!

It is relentless from the very start to the end.

Casey Orr gives us a classic Beefcake track with Beat You to Death.

Hail Genocide and KZ Necromancer should become live mainstays...

And The Litany of the Slain gives us a complete rundown of every person/enemy ever killed during the entire 25+ year history of Gwar. The lyrics read like a high school year book that hard core fans can look back on with fond memories.

This is without a doubt one of the most complete Gwar albums ever. This one belongs up there with Scumdogs and Violence....With some of their past releases you can omit them from the library...but any Gwar collection without this album will be incomplete.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gwar Keeps on Rocking November 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
All over the net I have seen people comparing this album to Scumdogs, I find those comparisons to be unfounded. It is much more similar to War Party. Songs like 'Zombies, March!' 'Beat You To Death' 'Hail, Genocide!' and 'KZ Necromancer' are definite standouts, especially 'Sick and Twisted" which any old school Gwar fan from the Hell-O / Scumdogs days will love. No it doesn't sound like those early albums, it just has the flavor.

'Come the Carnivore' feels like total filler, which can be forgiven to some extent as it is part two of a four part continuous song. 'Tick-Tits' feels rushed, you can hear the potential and it is a decent song, I was just expecting more lyrically. The two breakdowns, the middle and the end are lacking, the verses and choruses are great. My biggest complaint of the album is Beefcake's base is mixed way back under the guitars which sucks because Casey rocks (you can hear the baselines great on the YouTube video of their Jimmy Fallon performance). Part of what made the old Gwar albums so good was the base always rocked and it stood out in the recording.

Even with that list of complaints I give "Bloody pit of Horror" the full five stars. This record was written on the road during their extensive touring for "Lust In Space", which was released only a year ago, and it doesn't miss a beat. It was nice to hear Dave bring back more of Oderus's old voice style on 'Sick and Twisted' I wish he would do that more often (then again my favorite Gwar song is still 'Rock & Roll never Felt So Good') If you liked Gwar's last four releases you will definitely like this. If your a fan of Gwar your probably not reading this anyhow, so crank it up to 10 and enjoy another solid offering. Anyone into trash or speed metal will love this album as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Come And Die, Come And Die! December 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Wow, didn't Lust In Space just come out?? Gwar may be the hardest working alien metal band in the galaxy, but don't think that quality is lacking for the quantity. Bloody Pit Of Horror is another enjoyable visit to Gwar's realm of insanity. The sound continues in the more technical thrash direction the band started on Violence Has Arrived and stuck with since. That is to say it's very heavy and shifts musically quite often, almost prog-ish in a way. No verse/chorus/verse/chorus/guitar solo/chorus/fade out here. As with the other recent Gwar offerings, most of the songs kind of run together at first, but after you give them a few fair listens, things sink in.
The album does seem kind of short, just a tad over a half hour I believe. Lyrically it's still Gwar of course. The first few tracks seem to be a mini concept piece about a zombie apocalypse and a bloody pit of horror! The rest is assorted Gwar craziness as we've come to expect.
Fans will certainly dig it, but it's not gonna be the one to convert a hater.

This was one of those cds I could listen to over and over and over again and not get tired of hearing it. I must have listening to this cd at least 10,000 times already and it is still a regular in my cd player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding. More fun from the scumdogs. October 8, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've been a big Gwar fan since 94, but VHA was the last album I had bought prior to this one.

Gwar is just as awesome now as they've always been... I would rank this album just below VHA and VHA was absolutely one of my favorites.

Thanks for the memories guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gwar knows how to make vinyl!
Not only an awesome band. But Gwar should be an ambassador for showing how one should release a picture disc. Not only a killer looking jacket but vinyl as well. Job well done.
