That being said, everyone's favorite scumdogs return with War Party, their first release in three years. The album picks up where 2001's Violence Has Arrived left off, dispensing with the extraneous satire that hampered weaker endeavors. The result is a lean, mean body of work, immediately throwing wild punches with the opener "Bring Back the Bomb." Oderous keeps his raunchy sense of humor intact with "Womb With a View," while his vocals become almost guttural on rippers like "The Reaganator" and "The Bonus." The effort wraps up with the epic "Fist Full of Teeth." All in all, Gwar makes War Party a festive occasion, where, in Oderous's own words, "the music is as beautiful as we are."
