Interview

Oderus of GWAR checks in with PITTSBURGH MUSIC MAGAZINE to talk Battle Maximus/ Live at Mr. Smalls 9/14

Just got off the phone with Oderus Urungus, leader and  intergalactic humanoid barbarian of GWAR, where we talked about their new release Battle Maximus.  I have had the pleasure of listening to the entire release and I have to tell you that it is the strongest effort that GWAR has ever released in my humble opinion.  GWAR gets overshadowed by their show rather than their musicianship for reasons that are obvious had you ever witnessed a GWAR show, and that is not to slight their musical prowess in any way…its just their show is that amazing and fun.  But, with this album GWAR can silence the naysayers and critics who say that all GWAR can do is throw fake blood and jump around in costumes.  True fans have been clued in for years and now many may open their minds and ears to the fact that there is much more going on sonically.  GWAR’s Battle Maximus features twelve brand new tracks that not only honor their departed ally, but tells the story of GWAR’s latest struggle against what may be their greatest enemy yet…the insidious “Mr. Perfect”, who has travelled through time itself to steal the power of GWAR–the power of immortality, and use this power to mutate the human race into his twisted vision of what the “perfect” human should be.   Listen here as we talk to Oderus about the new album and practicing for the tour, The GWARBQ, Fox Channel, Syria, G-pen vaporizer endorsements, and what we should do with “celebutards”like Miley Cyrus…
