GWAR "War Party"
by Lord Satyr Filth
6 Halloweens Gone Wrong out of 10
Another typical GWAR Cover, but this looks fairly photoshopped and after so long at this you would think they would demand a little bit more from the company they are working with. It is them standing on the cover under their logo (big surprise) looking “mean”. I do like the new logo though.
6 Too Old for Halloweens out of 10
Again, this looks fairly slapped together on someone’s laptop. I will give kudos to them for throwing all of the lyrics in along with the credits, that is a nice spread, it is just the picture of them. That was kinda cool a decade ago but let's get with some new ideas and a better layout. Nice to know that Dave (Oderus) thinks enough of himself to make sure he has a separate photo of himself… Please…
5 At Least It Isn’t “The Road Behind”s out of 10
Like the cover and booklet, this is just another typical GWAR release. The songs are there but they aren’t. This could have been a better release if they had tried a bit harder on making them sound good. Oh, by the way, Dave Mustaine called, he wants his riff from Holy Wars back that was nicely put into Krosstika. Come on, I picked that out right when I heard it, did you lift it right off the cd??? Their is very little originality in the writing, just retreaded ideas that have been used again and again. They get away with it because they are GWAR but really…… Like I said above, it least it isn’t that sell out “hit track ” “The Road Behind”, so be thankful for something.
Comments: GWAR have been around for almost 2 decades and it is starting to show. I still think GWAR are good, even to this Dark Lord of Metal Sludge, but are starting to sound tiring. I know they want to keep releasing and playing but try something new, please…. Something, anything.. By the way, great live show though, in that department they are getting sicker.
