GWAR @ The Belasco Theater – 10/18/2018
The barbaric interplanetary warriors GWAR landed in Los Angeles on Thursday night October 18 at The Belasco Theater and laid waste to all in their path. Still out supporting their 2017 release The Blood of Gods, the scumdogs of the universe along with Hatebreed, Miss May I and Ringworm are out destroying cities across the US this fall on the “Gore, Core, Metal and More” tour.
After Ringworm and Miss May I got the early crowd moving, the East Coast Hardcore veterans Hatebreed took the stage and decimated Los Angeles with a 14 song set that mixed in plenty of older and newer material. Vocalist Jamey Jasta certainly knows how to command a crowd and get them moving and the Los Angeles crowd was as die-hard as they come. While Hatebreed successfully delivered the metal and core, it was now time for GWAR to deliver the gore.
Opening their show with “War on Gwar”, things got bloody real quick as vocalist Blothar and the band battled a few soldiers out to kill the band but in the end the soldiers were executed and the crowd was rewarded with blood spewing and squirting everywhere. With GWAR you get a killer concert with some punk infused heavy metal as well as a well thought out visual performance that will make your belly hurt from laughing so hard and maybe a little grossed out, but all in good fun.
GWAR dismembered Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton as well as other arch enemies of the space invaders but the band always came out the victor as did the crowd who many were wearing white shirts, just loved getting soaked with blood and space jizz.
GWAR successfully conquered Los Angeles and disappeared into the night leaving behind joyous, totally satisfied blood-soaked fans. Everyone needs to experience a GWAR show, catch them in your town.
