GWAR - Bloody Pit Of Horror (2010)

GWAR are much more of punkish-thrash metal band than a stoner metal band, I know; but this is a great album. Here's what a Kik Axe Music reviewer had to say about the band and their latest effort:

"Love 'em or hate 'em, GWAR are never going away. For over 25 years the band from Antarctica via Virginia have been bringing their campy brand of horror-infused metal to the masses, and one thing that's always bothered me about those quick to write them off for their "act" is that they fail to note that GWAR is comprised of some genuinely great musicians. While the band hit somewhat of a stale period in the late '90's and into the early 2000's, starting with 2004's BEYOND HELL, GWAR has actually been getting better." ~ Kik Axe Music review.

I couldn't call GWAR a stoner band by any means. But they are an amazing show to see live (I haven't seen them but it's on my list). Good find

Yeah, I've heard they're a real spectacle to see live. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to see them yet. Really digging their new album, though.
