The Vogue in Indianapolis was packed to the gills on a cold Tuesday night to see legends COC and GWAR.
Corrosion Of Conformity is sporting the founding members, Mike Dean (bass and vocals), Reed Mullin (drums and vocals), and Woody Weatherman (guitar) and sound just as tight as ever. Known for their mix of punk and metal, COC has been bringing their thrash metal to fans for over 30 years. The pit was large as they warmed the crowd up for GWAR.
After loss of founding member and front man Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie) earlier this year, GWAR still hit the road in true GWAR fashion. The Eternal Tour centers around the disappearance of Oderus and the warriors attempting to bring him back through the space-time continuum.Â
This tour lineup consists of BlÃ³thar (lead singer, bass guitar), Beefcake the Mighty (bass guitar, vocals), Pustulus Maximus (lead guitar, vocals), BalSac the Jaws of Death (rhythm guitar, vocals), JiZMak da Gusha (drums), Bonesnapper (bodyguard, crappy vocals), Sawborg Destructo (annoying nemesis, annoying vocals), and Vulvatron (plot twist, vocals).
The Vogue was a swirling pit of people as the show opened with Black Sabbath’s War Pigs as the entire house pumped their fists and sang along awaiting the arrival of GWAR on stage.Â Most of the crowd was wearing white shirts as they prepared to be covered in blood and ooze from the stage. Â GWAR did not disappoint as they delivered a show full of theatrics, fun and full blown metal.Â It was part irreverence,Â part inappropriate, part raunchy and yet 100% fun. GWAR puts on a show that you won’t soon forget.
