Scumbags of Earth beware; GWAR is ramping up their offensive aimed at total human domination and extermination. After the loss of their beloved leader Oderus Urungus, GWAR has been strategically planning their assault of our planet and now we have the framework outlining our demise, Blood of Gods.
GWAR is at it again, but this time their offensive is more massive and powerful. Blood of Gods begins with a manifesto called “War on GWAR” which breaks into a sluggish but passionate guitar riff reminiscent of “Black Sabbath.” This song illustrates everything wrong in this world from politics to religion. “El Presidente” is a song with a very strong message about the political climate in our country. One of my favorite tracks on the album is “I’ll Be your Monster.” The track has a vintage punk sound to it and a guitar solo to die for. Another classic GWAR song is “Fuck This Place.” It documents the creation of the human race via GWAR and an ape, which they now consider a mistake. It also references fallen leader Oderus Urungus:
You left us stranded on this
World of pus
And in death you have forsaken us
This planet fucking sucks!
So we say…”
The last song on the album is an incredible cover of AC/DC’s anthem “If you want Blood (You got it)”. It is very respectful of the original but 100% GWAR.
If you can survive the auditory attack on your mind and eardrums of Blood of Gods you may have a chance to become one of the many who will endure the inevitable rise and total domination of GWAR. Your resistance is futile so submit and survive Scumbag. Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing can kill GWAR. Blood of Gods will invade earth October 20, 2017 via Metal Blade Records. You have been warned, buy or die.
