Album Review

While Gwar is really more of a sight gag, its music has always held up its end of the band's bit, riffing on heavy metal clichés while using those same elements to create serviceable headbanging music. Musically, the papier-mâché pranksters' 1988 debut falls somewhere between Black Sabbath and Anthrax; lyrically, it's like Ween trapped inside the brain of a 14-year-old kid. Fart jokes, snickering song titles (the winner: "I'm In Love (With a Dead Dog)"), plenty of bizarre and/or gory references to sexual perversion, and references to a**l caves — it's all in a day's work for Gwar.

The death ray sound effect cutting through "World O Filth"'s hardcore thrash is also spectacular.

The group claimed to consist of all-powerful interplanetary warriors, descended from aliens...
