Gwar -- Lawrence, KS -- November 8th, 2010

After about thirty minutes of scrubbing all this stuff off in the shower, I'm finally ready to write this review!

I missed Mobile Deathcamp because I was outside talking to my friends. Shout out to Andy from Elctrikchair. (WHO IS ON THE CD IN THE LATEST ISSUE OF TERRORIZER OMG!) As soon as I made my way in, it was apparent that the show would be packed, but I wasn't prepared. It might just be the most packed show I've been to at The Granada.

Infernaeon kept repeating that they were from the "Hollywood of death metal", Tampa, FL. And that's pretty much what they sounded like. I actually thought they sounded really good. Although the mix wasn't the best, it had a lot of energy and some great sounding solo's. They even had a killer cover of Metallica's "Creeping Death" that sounded amazing, but I was embarassed that the crowd didn't go more nutso for it. Fun stuff.

I don't think I've ever come across a more polarizing band than The Casualties. I don't know if they are true punk or just posers, but I do know this: they put on a really fun show. They're probably the closest I'm going to get to seeing a legendary punk band, and the crowd certainly acted like they were legends. Huge mosh pits and lots of singing along. All their songs were fast and good to headbang to, including the "Blitzkrieg Bop" cover they did! Good stuff.

Last time I saw Gwar, I stood far enough back not to get hit with anything. Not this time! I was absolutely soaked in every imaginable liquid and it was amazing. Gwar killed Sarah Palin and Lady Gaga, a dog, a couple of zombies, and then shot out even more blood on the crowd from a cannon. The entire venue was absolutely slick with "blood" by the time the concert ended. The setlist we got was just a little bit different than the one's that have been posted, because their new album, "Bloody Pit of Horror" comes out tomorrow. "Salamanizer" and "Bring Back The Bomb" were fun of course, but "Pure As The Arctic Snow" and the "Bloody Pit Of Horror" medley sounded fantastic as well. A chaotic crowd all around; I don't think anyone left the Granada without having their skin stained red. It was an absolute spectacle. The band sounded fantastic, the theatrics were spot on, and I can't wait to see Gwar again.

Infernaeon included:

Creeping Death (Metallica cover)
Immaculate Deception

The Casualties:

We Are All We Have
Tomorrow Belongs to Us
Criminal Class
Without Warning
System Failed Us
Heart Bleeds Black
Social Outcast
Looking Thru Bloodshot Eyes
Media Control
Blitzkrieg Bop (Ramones cover)
Kill Everyone
Riot!
Unknown Soldier

GWAR:

1. Horror Of Yig
2. Damnation Under God
3. Hail to Genocide
4. Let Us Slay
5. Vlad The Impaler
6. Decay Of Grandeur
7. The Private Pain of Techno Destructo
8. Crack In The Egg
9. Maggots
10. Bring Back The Bomb
11. Metal Metal Land
12. Pure As The Arctic Snow
13. Beat You To Death
14. Salamanizer
--------------
15. Zombie March/Come The Carnivor/A Gathering of Ghouls/Storm is Coming medley
16. Sick Of You

Infernaeon: 8/10
The Casualties: 8.5/10
Gwar: 9/10

Hell yea love scrubbing that shit off right? You are spot on describing the Casualties. I vaguely remember them off Warped '07. To me they seem as legit as punk rock gets anymore. I thought they were a hell of alot of fun. This is my 6th time seeing GWAR, I'm probably slightly more excited for The Casualties. Show will be amazing regardless. And I'm taking 5 first timers. Will be memorable.

Yeah, I'm pretty good friends with Andy, the main dude. He has some awesome stories, haha.
