Photography by Bruce Mackay.

GWAR is an American heavy metal band composed of and operated by a frequently rotating line-up of musicians, artists and filmmakers collectively known as Slave Pit Inc. Despite the death of frontman and lead singer Dave Brockie in 2014, the group has continued, albeit without any of its founding members.

Easily identified by their distinctive costumes, Gwar’s core thematic and visual concept revolves around an elaborate science fiction-themed mythology which portrays the band members as barbaric interplanetary warriors, a narrative which serves as the basis for all of the band’s albums, videos, live shows and other media. Rife with over-the-top violent, sexual, and scatological humour typically incorporating social and political satire, Gwar has attracted both acclaim and controversy for its music and stage shows, the latter of which notoriously showcase enactments of graphic violence that result in the audience being sprayed with copious amounts of fake blood, urine, and semen.

Ambient Light photographer Bruce Mackay is currently at large in London, England and has managed to catch one of these notorious GWAR live performances! So as a special treat for all you Bohab’s out there, cue up your favourite GWAR album, grab a meat sandwich and check out this gallery. Rock N fucken’ Roll!
