Via their recordings, these self-described "scumdogs of the universe" purvey lo-fi punk-thrash matched with equally lowbrow lyrics. Onstage, however, GWAR more effectively combine the sometimes clever, wacky, costumed look and theatrics of a Green Jello with the base grossness of the Mentors, lending GWAR tunes a turgid Technicolor life. In fact, clued-in audience members have taken to wearing garbage bags over their clothes to protect themselves from excessive stage spewage. The band's seventh album possesses redeeming factors, however, despite such puerile "songs" as "Baby Raper" and "Penile Drip." Though there are more lowlights than highlights, especially in the lyrics, GWAR actually come through a couple times. The Rob Zombie-ish ditty "Tune from the Moon" isn't bad, the slide guitar on the slow Southern-country "The Master Has a Butt" is cool, while "Mary Anne" is an almost-love song in a melodic punk vein. The barnyard noises on "F**kin' an Animal" are perversely laugh-out-loud funny-gross, yet there's also the sense of a Monty Python-like bawdy humor. We Kill Everything is rife with sicko toilet humor--literally on "Jiggle the Handle"--that is no doubt offensive to many. For good, dirty fun, however, GWAR provide a few--albeit very few--moments of lewd levity. --Katherine Turman
ONE OF GWAR'S BEST
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I don't really know why a lot of people didn't like this cd. I hold it right up there with SCUMDOGS OF THE UNIVERSE, THIS TOILET EARTH, and AMERICA MUST BE DESTROYED. It is extremely funny, especially "Fishf**k" (which unfortunatly gets stuck in my head and I start singing it unknowingly). "A Short History Of The World (Part VII (The Final Chapter (Abbr.)))" is one of the coolest songs when performed live (the theatrics are great). Highlights are "Babyraper", "Fishf**k", "A Short History Of The End Of The World...", "Tune From Da Moon", "Jiggle The Handle", and "Nitro-Burnin' Funny Bong". Though this is said to be a censored version, Gwar are just making a joke. They're saying that their music is so explicit that even their censored version has a parental advisory. This is a great cd for a punk fan, a metal fan, or anyone with a really sick sense of humor. Not for the easily-offended."
Not as good as the others

"The gospel of Gwar speaks volumes of truth. One needs only to look to "I'm f-ing an Animal" to understand the true power of their lyrics:"I'm f-ing an animal/Animal f-er on the loose/I'm f-ing an animal/I'll go from dog to goose."Beautiful"
