A couple of videos for today’s update. Today’s theme? The Scumdogs of the Universe, banished to this puny planet for the crime of being TOO AWESOME, frozen for millennia in the wastelands of Antarctica, revived by Sleazy P. Martini, fueled by crack, and who now tour this world slaughtering all who get in their way. From thence they shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
And speaking of the dead, here’s the little-heard cover of Fabio Frizzi’s theme to Zombi 2 (aka Zombie) from the long out-of-print tribute CD For Lucio Fulci: A Symphony of Fear. It’s not what you expect from GWAR, hewing extremely closely to Frizzi’s original. But if you love Italian horror, great soundtrack music, metal, GWAR, or any combination of the above, you owe it to yourself to give this a listen…
And, keeping in the theme of things, here’s GWAR doing their normal thing, calling up the wretched undead from their tombs to do their bidding, with “Zombies, March!”
“Your god’s long dead
So don’t waste your time
On overzealous hypocrites
Who call Chaos a crime
Eat the rich!
Kill the poor!
And worship always
— GWAR, “Parting Shot,” Lust In Space
