GWAR at Pol'and'Rock Festival

2022-05-02 21:35:00


The band, established in 1984 in Richmond, is easily recognisable by their grotesque outfits and masks, reminiscent of those worn by fearsome characters from video games or nightmares. GWAR, operated by an interchanging cast of artists, musicians, and videographers, creates a mythos, a driving force behind the band's creative process. The group released 15 studio albums and has an extensive oeuvre of video productions, including a Grammy-nominated long video for Phallus in Wonderland from 1992. The band is currently working on a new album, to be released in June 2022, so fans at Pol'and'Rock will get to see the latest material from GWAR. On top of touring, writing and releasing music and running their music festival Gwar-B-Q, the group branched out into video games, comic books, and other merchandise. 



GWAR presents itself as a brutal intergalactic force of ruthless warriors. Their concerts always incorporate ritualistic and graphic torture of a well-known historical or public figure. The audience can bet on being sprayed with artificial blood or other bodily liquids. GWAR is all about the controversy, and their lyrics often cross the boundaries between shocking and offensive - they refer to graphic violence and sex. Critics and fans describe GWAR's music as shock-rock, but the band's sound combines hard rock, thrash metal, and heavy metal.
