When we interviewed the quirky, eccentric and overall intelligent Dave Brockie of the metal super group GWAR we had no idea of knowing that just four months later the giant of horror metal would no longer be with us. As sure as the grotesque Oderus Urungus made his way back to his ancestral home deep in space the remaining members of GWAR have opted to continue on their quest by introducing a new female talent to the line up.
The imposing sight of the mighty purple, boob-blood squirting Vulvatron (Kim Dylla) may be one hard core fans of GWAR weren’t expecting, especially since this lady of metal doesn’t polish the back ground with her boots, she’s up front bellowing at the crowd in true Brockie style, continuing the battle where Oderus left off.
Vulvatron shares lead duties with Blothar (Mike Bishop) but makes no apologies for being the new high priestess of GWAR, leading the charge from the front and bringing a new dynamic to a band that has been challenging social expectations since they began all those years ago. We like to think where ever he may be the great Oderus Urungus is disembowelling unsuspecting peasants in honour of the latest addition to one of the greatest metal bands to grace the Earth and with pride in what he created will rock out with them till the end of time.
