Only a few short months after the devastating loss of David Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus) left the fate of the influential theatrical metal band Gwar in limbo, the group of intergalactic Scum-dogs has re-emerged with some radical new changes. For decades, this band of misfit miscreants has entertained and horrified audiences, and they show no signs of slowing down now, despite the loss of their fearless leader.
To be honest, the thought of Gwar minus Oderus did not sit well with this long time fan at first, until I saw this interview last month with long time member Beefcake the Mighty, where he said “Oderus always intended for Gwar to last 1000 years.”
And the thought of that is enough to make any fan of the one of a kind spectacle that is Gwar very happy.

Oderus-Urungus

So how does one go about replacing the presence of one of the most charasmatically deranged onstage presences of the last three decades? They don’t.
The upcoming tour will follow the storyline of The Search For Oderus, and the focus will be shifted to the newest Gwar front-woman, Vulvatron, as the Scum-dogs of the Universe scour the earth looking for their missing leader. An ingenious way to keep the spirit of the band alive without the sacrilegious idea of replacing Brockie.

Vulvatron – aka Kim Dylla – is the first female member of Gwar since the departure of the dancer/backup vocalist Slymenstra Hymen in 2000 and the band’s first female vocalist. Dylla is also been a member of the Kung Fu Dykes who appeared at the annual GWAR-B-Q last year. According to the band, the Kung Fu Dykes were “born during a forgotten dynasty when fire and death spewed from the earth, [when] three lesbians were miraculously transformed into the gorgeously disfigured rock superstars.”

Vulvatron had her onstage debut with the band on September 12th, alongside the reinvented alter ego of long-time band member Michael Bishop (Beefcake The Mighty) as Blothar, an armored Scum-dog who boasts shoulder-antlers and an udder. Vulvatron sports some fashionable spiky armor and huge breasts that spray blood, but she is not a gimmick, rather the proverbial real deal.
According to the new band leader herself, “Vulvatron is nobody’s girlfriend, or groupie or background dancer; Vulvatron is in charge … Representation matters, and now, all of a sudden, there’s a big, brash, bold new female personality on stage with a legendary band. Moreover, she’s just as gross and goofy as her male band-mates, whether she’s slaying dinosaurs or disemboweling Nazi skinheads onstage or drenching her minions with … [artificial] boob-blood.”

The newly re-invented band will begin the quest for their missing leader on October 15th in Brockie’s hometown of Richmond Virginia, with a full North American tour to follow.
