Gwar Reveal New Frontwoman

Gwar Reveal New Frontwoman
When Gwar first revealed their "Eternal Tour," it was understood that the late Oderus Urungus (a.k.a. vocalist Dave Brockie) would have his frontman spot taken by new vocalist Blothar. Last weekend, though, the Scumdogs introduced another singer to crowds, the mighty Vulvatron.

Vulvatron's first official live performance as a co-frontperson with the group was at Chicago's Riot Fest last Friday (September 12). This marks the first time Gwar has had a female member since the departure of dancer/backup vocalist Slymenstra Hymen (a.k.a. Danielle Stampe) in 2000.

Née Kim Dylla, the performer had also played with Kung Fu Dykes and Thismeansyou before joining Gwar. As described by Wondering Sound, the character is a "spiky purple Amazon whose massive (prosthetic) breasts occasionally shoot geysers of blood out onto her hapless audience."

It's further explained that while previous female characters in Gwar like Sylmenstra Hymen, Amazina and Temptress were relegated to supporting roles in the Slave Pit, co-frontperson Vulvatron plays a central role in this latest configuration. To get an idea of the ferocity of Gwar's newly instated barbarian, you can check out a quick clip of Vulvatron sticking it to a T-Rex down below.

UPDATE: According to a press release from Gwar, Vulvatron will not be taking over as the band's main vocalist but she will have a "more mysterious" role, or what the PR calls "head bitch in charge."

The press release explains it like this:

"Gwar, the most brutal band in existence, has bolstered its ranks leading up to the Gwar Eternal Tour. The Berserker Blóthar and Vulvatron are the latest intergalactic warriors to be banished to the pathetic mudball known as Planet Earth. Blóthar; a fat, filthy, frozen space viking, will take over as Gwar's lead vocalist. The role of the red-hot cybernetic spitfire known as Vulvatron is more mysterious... Both will feature prominently in the anticipated Gwar Eternal Tour — which promises to be the most shocking and entertaining rock show of the year! Get to know your new masters before they grind you to a bloody pulp!"
