Before lead singer Oderus Urungus
started thrusting his crotch at the crowd, he introduced the newest member of the act, Pustulus Maximus.
God asked GWAR if they were ready to die yet, and GWAR answered by shoving a sword in the butt of Morality Squad leader Father Bohab from their third album America Must Be Destroyed. 'Twas a bit tasteless, the whole sodomy priest thing. Needless to say, there was a ton a blood.
For all of their costumes -- the pointy points, the melted face, the torture chamber, machine looks -- there were a lotta skinny white thighs onstage. And Oderus' ass was rockin' in plain view.
After the priest thang, he said, the next song, "describes the feeling a white man has when he's staring at a black man's penis" and they blasted "Black and Huge." Everyone, white and black men and women, laughed.
Hitler died a particularly hideous death. They ripped his face and flesh off pulling at his eyes and brain. Jesus died twice. Once on the cross and once as Super Cyborg Jesus -- who really kinda also whooped GWAR's ass. The stage props were truly impressive. Jesus on the cross, for instance, I couldn't figure out if he was a robot or a man whose arms were kinda being ripped off.
