I have seen Gwar live more than any other band in my life (Melvins and Clutch run a close second and third). Some of my favorite memories include Oderus giving me a thumbs up as I faux-masturbated while crowd surfing during a show while the Scumdog billionaires performed their pretty much worst song “Sammy” or screaming along to “Horror Of Yig” until my throat was raw and my face was as orange from fake blood as Conald Trump’s is from spray tanning with Pam cooking spray before a good Putin nut gargle. What I am trying to say is, I am qualified to say as a very OG human filth that Gwar is still good.
I never thought I would be able to support the band without Oderus, one of the all time greatest and most original, fun and awesome voices in metal. Blothar, however, has done a fine job keeping the alien quest for dominance alive. They basically just sound like “I Hate Love Songs” and “Crush, Kill, Destroy” are every song now, which is a far better solution than if Oderus was replaced by someone with no past affiliation.
