Cowell is reportedly readying a new, pan-European talent contest that will pit contestants from 15 countries against one another. It sounds like a Frankenstein’s monster, uniting the best of The X Factor with the worst of the Eurovision Song Contest.

"People are more interested now in what's happening behind the scenes," says an out-of-character Brockie, who co-formed Gwar in 1984 as an offshoot of the punk band Death Piggy. "And honestly, after 20 years of doing this 'BLOOD MAD OVERLORD, BLAH BLAH BLAH,' sometimes it seems more incisive and relevant to respond in a normal human manner. " Really? Seems like monster bands are having a resurgence just about now – Hannibal Lecter worshipping Slipknot is one of the best-selling metal bands today, Finnish monster-masked Lordi just won Eurovision, and dozens of garage band start-ups are harnessing the power of the creature-costume as a means of self-expression.

While fans of rock's top horror cartoon have long embraced the freak show, Gwar's slapdash albums, with titles like "Violence Has Arrived," "Scumdogs of the Universe" and "This Toilet Earth," rendered them musically irrelevant. But after years of moderate success, financial and artistic considerations produced a desire for greater achievement.

  1. Usher Updates Says:
