Out-of-this-world monster metallers GWAR have posted the following update:

“Gwar, the most devastating and dominant force in Gwar history, gleefully vomits buckets of black bile as they announce their headlining slot on this year’s Sounds Of The Underground summer festival tour! Oderus, ruler of Earth, or at least the naughty bits, commands all humans to ritually mutilate their pets genitals and swear eternal allegiance to Gwar and to metal and attend what will go down in history as the greatest, grossest Gwar show ever! And after 20-plus years of providing the sickest show in rock history, Gwar stands ready to top even themselves! Returning from the bowels of the abyss, GWAR has the very legions of hell at their command, slavering to decimate all those who fail to appease their boundless wrath! Hail Gwar!”

GWAR are great. Not necessarily in the technical music abilities department, but they're too entertaining and too over the top for me not to like. As for being in the headlining slot, I'm not too keen on that, but I'm willing to stay for their whole set, just for the experience of a GWAR headling show...The most I've seen of GWAR were the 40 minutes they've played on the past SOTU tours.

Heres an accurate analogy for you all:
Gwar:Sounds of the Underground as Black Label Society:Ozzfest

Get ready to see them at every sounds of the underground tour

BLS isn't doing ozzfest, unless they are the mystery band. If they are I'd be happy, yet annoyed at the same time.

I think its funny that people automatically question musical ability simply because a band has a strong image, what a joke. Listen to the start of The Salaminzer - is that not some proficient riffing? I mean, they're not exactly aiming for technical heights with their style of music are they? GWAR are a great band - just hope they steer back to their classic thrashy style rather than the metalcorish tinges of the new album.

I'm glad they are going on last. The SOTU with Clutch and LoG, Gwar went on early and made a huge mess all over the place. Opeth went on after but could only play one song because the crew had to spend so much time cleaning up the stage. Then we all had to sit there all messed up and crusty for the rest of the show. Plus it was mid-summer and it was hot as balls. At least if they go on last people can get to see Gwar in all thier glory. They can get the full effect of all the blood and jizz and then go home for a much needed shower. Gwar is awesome and they should get as much time on stage as they want, they won't be around forever and I recomend everyone see them at least once before they are finished for good. Hell-O is still one of my favorites.

“….and that mission is to make Gwar give up their decadent lifestyle and join me and the Master in his holy jihad to rid the universe of his deadly enemies. And that means no more super big gulps or women with tits the size of Ethiopia.” - Techno's Song
