GWAR Leader Says Shocking Humans Easy As Ever

SOUTH POLE, Antarctica (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The leader of horror-metal veterans GWAR says it’s just as easy to shock humans as it was when the band first debuted 20 years ago.

According to GWAR’s “singer,” Oderus Urungus (who was born David Brockie), “It’s not harder to shock people these days; if you apply a strong electrical current to just about anyone’s exposed genitals, they’re gonna fry.”

Speaking from “miles below the South Pole,” in an underground lair-recording studio, Urungus says Gwar’s recording process is equally violent.

In his words, “Other members are constantly battling each other in a gladiatorial arena to see which chord progressions we use; I have to battle just to get my Pavarotti-inspired vocals recorded.”

The new GWAR album, entitled Sounds of the Underground, is being preceded by a long-form video called Blood-Bath and Beyond. The DVD features a Urungus-directed porno called Filthy Chunks and he says “it’s got a s■■■■load of stuff from the past 20 years I don’t even remember doing.”

He adds: “They keep telling me that’s me in the film, but I don’t believe them.”
