Arguably the most important spearheading act in the great progressive rock renaissance of the late 90s.
Melodic, dark, political and technical metal. I saw them acousticly last year, but this time a full show. Looking forward to it :)
Hard rock with some symphonics thrown in for good measure. It’s been a while since I saw them so will look forward to them.
Great melodic rock band. A good addition.

Or "only" a band from Virginia with a stageshow even crazier than the music?
Influences from punk, Frank Zappa-like experimentation and, obviously, brutal metal.
Another important components of the Gwar concept is the explicit genitals-related humour (beware of fluid-spraying from the stage) plus "murders" of objectionable individuals - don't be surprised if you see someone like Mr. Lordi get "executed" on stage during Gwar's SRF debut. An experience you won't easily forget!
