“Bloody Pit of Horror” clocks in at just over 37 minutes and is full on in your face GWAR from start to finish. The album was produced and engineered by Gwar’s own Cory Smoot and opens up with the 4 piece epic title track which features the impressive eight string guitar work of Cory “Flattus” Smoot and Michael “Balzac” Derks. The album also has several other high points such as “Beat You to Death” sung by Casey “Beefcake” Orr and “Tick-Ticks” which proves to be another notch in the lyrical belt of front man Dave “Oderus” Brockie.
