Biography

It has been 25 years since the heavy metal holocaust known as GWAR burst upon our world in an explosion of blood, guts, and screaming steel. In this time they have revealed themselves not only as the un-disputed masters of “shock rock”, but also as an international cultural icon that has both touched the lives, and in some cases ruined the clothing, of many thousands of people. ...

3.0 out of 5 stars You have to listen this many times 23 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Not the best album from Gwar.
I loved Ragnarok and Beyond Hell and this album seems like a step back.
But you just don't have to listen this album once and then rate it absolutely bad.
You have to listen this album many times, and then you'll start to appreciate it!

By the way, I miss the Devin Townsend's hand on the mixer and production

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album for a long time. 4 Feb 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to GWAR since their 1990 album, 'Scumdogs of the Universe' and 'America Must Be Destroyed' of 1992, and 'Lust In Space' is by far their best album since their seminal works of the early 90's, and makes a real statement for where they're at so far in the 21st century.
There's excellent, powerful riffage and musical construction in all the pieces, on a non-stop, sonic-rollercoaster ride of an album. Great production and all-round playing and Oderus has lost none of his vocal ability, indeed it may be some of the best he's done in their 25 year history.
If you've been disappointed in the past with 'This Toilet Earth', 'We Kill Everything', etc. this is a tremendous return to form, and if you like 'Scumdogs..' and 'America...', this is definitely 'the one' to get.
Let's hope they hit the road in 2010 with more incredible shows.... Heavy-Metal with the Blackest-Humour!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing from Gwar since "Violence Has Arrived" 19 Aug 2009
By Ogre - Published on Amazon.com
I've always liked Gwar's ability to take a longtime listener and serve up something both familiar and expected, while sniffing around and tweaking things a bit. "Lust in Space" is another album in the fast-paced style they've done since "Violence Has Arrived." Fast and pissed off but funny as hell at the same time.

Thankfully there's none of the neo-punk, 1-minute orgasms on what I call the dark ages of Gwar. Thankfully Dave Brockie/Oderus isn't singing like a faux-bluesy goofball, the stuff that sickened me about those middle albums. But there's enough of the basic punk chord progression and thump-whack drums to please the punks among us, ironically enough on the song "Metal Metal Land," which eventually only sounds metal at the tail end.

"Lust in Space" is still fast-paced and metal to the core, and Oderus sounds as monstrous and evil as ever. There's much more back-up vocals from the rest of the Scumdogs, and Beefcake and Flattus get their own leads. I don't envy Jizmak's feet because it seems every song has at some point the double-bass drum thumping like a burp gun. They even get a bit Iron Maiden, using twin guitar leads. Gave me a little twinkle, it did.

The lyrics are familiar to anyone who's been listening for a while - sex, maggots, death, war, defiling small puppies, etc. And they go back to the "I hate earth" theme right off the bat with the title track; the lyrics reminded me a bit of "Death Pod" from the "Scumdogs" album way back when. "Lust in Space" is a sonically thin song but once it's going the Gwar momentum is like a juggernaut.

There's even a bit of Ministry here; the song "Lords and Masters" reminded me of the speed-metal-punk from the early 90s, particularly the "TV Song" series of tracks. But here, on "Lords" it goes from that immediately into the breakneck growling and sludge that only Gwar can deliver.

I wasn't disappointed at this hunk of Gwar because it's everything I've wanted in Gwar and haven't gotten since "Violence." Just about every deadly sin, gore, speed, anger, self-deprecating, epic megalomania, and that uniquely Gwar style of sick humor that drew me in almost 20 years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY SOLID Album....from a Legendary Band. 9 Sep 2009
By B. Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Gwar has always been an easy target for music snobs. Here you have a band that dresses up in Latex monster suits and sprays blood all over their fans. However, all that being said....you also have an 11th album over the span of 25 years. Say what you will but Dave and company are doing SOMETHING right. This is a band that has survived losing members (some very prominant), switching labels, and just time itself.

All that being said, this is very solid release. Although I would not put it as high in regard as Violence Has Arrived or America Must be Destroyed. I can say it is MILES ahead of that dredful last release Beyond Hell! The album is heavy and does a great job at bringing back the vocal backing harmony that has been missing on recent efforts. With Casey Orr being back as Beefcake we get a great track from him bearing his signature voice. AND...with an exceptional surprise we get a song by Flattus called "Unleash the Flies" which is my personal favorite on the album. "Where is Zog" manages to bring out humor but still keeps things hard and even on the album. In the library of GWAR I would rank this release along the lines of Ragnarok and War Party....very hard, all around solid efforts....not spectacular like Scumdogs, VHA or AMBD. BUT....not awful like Carnival of Chaos or We Kill Everything.

If you are a fan, pick it up as it is worthy of being next to any of their past discs. And if you don't know of the group, this is not a bad effort to start listening to.

Just a quick mention of the respect this group does deserve. First of all many people claim the band is not the same without the likes of Hunter Jackson, Chuck Varga and Ms. Stamppe (Techno, Sexy and Slymenstra). Keep in mind after 25 years none of these folks are getting any younger. When you keep that in mind it's amazing the band is still around. As a matter of fact for Dave and Brad and Dirks to keep this up it has had to have been a TRUE labor of love. These guys have stuck with this project for many, many years.....they are not becoming millionaires off of it, they HAVE to be getting tired physically in relation to the physical aspect the entire project demands. They deserve true respect and admiration. I had the pleasure of meeting all 3 a few years back at a Clutch show and I got to see them perform as DBX the night after, during that conversation I thanked Dave personally for all of the entertainment he has given me during all of those years. I have been to every Houston show since 1992...I believe around 30+ shows...and will go see them on the Sept. 29th as well for this album.

Gwar is an Institution. My cousin brought me into the fold with Hello, and now I'm doing so with my 18 year old cousin. And hopefully if they can keep it up...one day I'll bring my kid to a Gwar show.

People can say all they want to about this band....but 11 albums and 25 years is no small feat. Like I said...they are doing something right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another great Album by GWAR 19 Nov 2013
By Calvin Hobbes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Another Rock solid album by GWAR, this time with space, and space is never a bad thing. With this, GWAR once again proves to be a great band for those who enjoy both Metal and a bit of Sci-Fi silliness.

Only bad thing, it comes in a Carbon Neutral cardboard case. Those things don't stand the test of time, but at least my local Fry's still sells the plastic ones.
