Coming to the horror streaming platform Shudder next month, metalheads will be able to watch a brand new GWAR documentary!

Per a press release, the movie, titled This Is GWAR, “gives rare insight into the 30-plus year career of one of the world’s most outrageous heavy metal bands, GWAR, known for their grotesque costumed characters and notoriously wild, fluid-soaked stage shows.”

“For more than three decades, GWAR has set the standard for heavy metal horror with larger-than-life personas and gore-filled stage shows that were unlike anything anyone had ever seen,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler.  “But even their most ardent fans have never seen them like this, as the band and director Scott Barber reveal in moving detail the literal blood, sweat and tears that have made GWAR the true legends they are today.”

Per the band, they have expressed the following:

“GWAR is founded on horror, humor, and heavy metal. Of course, we love Shudder! It’s our favorite. Every movie is like a home movie for us. Are you kidding me?? Monsters, demons, the undead, dinosaurs? Those are our people! GWAR and Shudder. Two terrifying tastes that taste terrifying together.”

This GWAR documentary will feature a plethora of interviews, with such individuals as: Weird Al Yankovic, Thomas Lennon, Alex Winter, Bam Margera, and Ethan Embry, including never seen footage of legendary GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus).

The GWAR documentary, This Is GWAR, will be available on Shudder come July 21st. You  can check out a trailer for This Is GWAR below.
