When asked what the lyrical content of the new album is….
“It’s the words. The words, that the singer sings…that’s the lyrical content, as is with most albums.”
Regarding GWAR’s Jimmy Fallon appearance:
“So Fallon stepped up to bat and said, “no one will take them? I’ll take them!” Like the fat kid picked last for soccer, we finally got picked after 25 years, and fatter then ever.”
Regarding his home planet “cholesterol”:
“Why am I violent now?! Because of the way the people treated me on my own planet. (in tears…..)”

It has been 25 years since the heavy metal holocaust known as GWAR burst upon our world in an explosion of blood, guts, and screaming steel. In this time they have revealed themselves not only as the un-disputed masters of “shock rock”, but also as an international cultural icon that has both touched the lives, and in some cases ruined the clothing, of many thousands of people. Often copied, never tamed, GWAR has set a standard of consistency in their work that is unmatched in rock and roll history. This year sees GWAR release their 12th original album, GWAR’s Bloody Pit of Horror, and continue in their non-stop tour schedule until the world is finally brought into groveling submission.
