Formed in Richmond, Virginia in 1984 – comprised of and operated by a frequently rotating line-up of musicians, artists and filmmakers collectively known as Slave Pit Inc – GWAR quickly established themselves as heavy metal legends.

Following the early days of the band, through to their near-commercial success, this mind-blowing feature tells of a story from devastatingly dark times to triumph over adversity and includes a stellar line-up of contributors and fans including Jackass’ Bam Marger, actor Ethan Embry (Empire Records, Grace and Frankie, Sneaky Pete) and true original ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic).
