SIGH. This is hard. How does one effectively review Gwar? How do you explain what you see without offending at LEAST one person? How exactly does one explain Gwar?
I laughed, I cried, and I twitched. I did enjoy this video. That's the easy part. The anal sex with a sword clip set to music and fart sounds is just plain fun. Most of this DVD is clips of shows set to song. There are skits, bootlegs, and lost demo recordings. There is a talk show set up with Oderus Urungus and Sleazy P. Martini. They chat and review and critique the clips.
Decapitation, evisceration, wrestling, slaves, giant penises, and orgasmic pleasure await those who purchase. It is shot and organized in almost a Troma Film manner. Watching this and thinking back, I wonder why my father even let me go to the shows when I was a kid. I also am reminded that this is the ONLY band that I try to stay as far away as possible from the stage. (Note for light blonde folks, the blood will stain your hair).
Gwar's music is great, but how to describe something like this. Words fail me. I can tell you it is good. It is an metal opera of death, destruction, sex, and politics. It is tongue in cheek and if you don't have a sense of humor, don't waste your time.
I s'pose I can best put it by saying it is Classic Gwar at their greatest. Blood, guts and cum all used in the greatest battle of all. The battle to summon the World Maggot and defeat The Master.
