GWAR is a satirical rock band formed in 1986 by a group of artists and musicians at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. The band is perhaps best known for their elaborate sci-fi / horror film inspired costumes, raunchy lyrics, and graphic stage performances, which can consist of scatology, sadomasochism, necrophilia, paedo-necrophilia, beastio-necrophilia, fire dancing, fake pagan rituals, mock executions / mutilations, and other controversial violent and social or political themes. GWAR was, for a long time, on the leading edge of shock rock, going as far as appearing on Jerry Springer in character and in full costume during the mid-1990s. In its large discography there are albums closer to Metal genre (heavy, thrash, speed...) or these ones here reviewed which sound closer to basic punk rock, old-school hardcore and perhaps some kind of alternative rock with intelligent lyrics.
