Gwar “The New Dark Ages”

What a great album cover for such a horrible Gwar record. I’ll keep harping on it every time they plop one out, the post Oderus era of this act has been horrendous. The live show is weak, and the songwriting is pathetic and uncreative. Revisit “This Toilet Earth,” “Carnival of Chaos,” “Violence Has Arrived,” or even the much hated “We Kill Everything” - all four records were from very different eras of this band and all reigned supreme in slap stick toilet humor, or even punctual metal. But Blothar is not a good singer, and the studio even knows that - the voice is layered and the lyrics aren’t even comical, and the music is dad rock at .50 cent wing night.
