Editor’s Note: Pustulus Maximus of GWAR was “kind” enough to offer up its take on “The Blood Of Gods”, in particular the singles “Fuck This Place” and “El Presidente” with Madness To Creation. Usually when Madness To Creation does a review, it is done with my own personal take, but Pustulus Maximus offered up its wisdom to explain several tracks. On October 20th, GWAR released their latest effort entitled “The Blood Of Gods” via Metal Blade Records. They will be touring in support of the album with special guests Doyle, He Is Legend, and U.S. Bastards. Check them out on tour! This is their first album since the untimely departure of Oderus Urungus, and Blothar has taken over GWAR scream duties. Here goes nothing with this!
GWAR mistakenly landed on this planet and it’s something with their lust that after reproducing with apes, they created the human race, that’s what the legend of GWAR is. Now, GWAR is rising up against the powers that be, due to issues with politics, organized religion, pollution, fast food, and factory farming and created their latest monstrosity known as “The Blood Of Gods”.
The album starts off with the track “War On GWAR”, which thrashes, makes blood from the innards curl, and severs heads due to the sheer madness and brutality of the track. Blothar picks up where Oderus Urungus leaves off with blood curling screams and due to his love for gluttony throughout the track. GWAR also has an anthem for their human slaves, because we all want to get with GWAR in the track “Viking Death Machine”. It is the battlecry for GWAR’s human slaves to demand unadulterated adulation and pools of blood to be left everywhere due to GWAR monsters slaying anything in its path with its punishing riffs, thunderous rhythms, and creating an 8th sin through their music.
