What is GWAR? What do they have to do with MBV?

Hey there, vape fans!

We’ve gotten a few bewildered customers wondering who (or what) GWAR is. Some of them know about GWAR, but have no idea what a costumed metal band has to do with our vaping company. Today, I will introduce the head-scratching masses to a truly brutal metal group, and how our savage union came to be.

Who (or what) is GWAR?

GWAR is a musical group known for their over-the-top stage antics, gleefully obscene lyricism, and monstrous costumes. They literally dress up as intergalactic space warriors, decapitate/mutilate surrogate celebrities, and blast their eager fan-base with colored fluids.

The band formed in 1984 in Richmond, Virginia. They developed an extremely intense following, known affectionately as “Bohabs.” GWAR has been featured on Beavis and Butthead, Jerry Springer, the film Empire Records, and countless other productions. As you can imagine, GWAR has been galvanizing force in the censorship debate since their formation.

I’d advise you to read up on the GWAR mythology. It’s pretty rad.

What does GWAR have to do with Mt. Baker Vapor?

In 2014, a partnership formed between GWAR and Mt. Baker Vapor. We collaborated with band members to create our GWAR Line of Premium Fluids, which has been a huge hit with critics and audiences alike. GWAR Fluids, like the band itself, has a cultish following.

How do I get more GWAR in my life?

There are so many ways to inject GWAR into your existence. Visit GWAR’s website for merch, upcoming shows, and complete mythology. Buy GWAR Fluids with us online: goo.gl/YQCB4U and try these delightful flavors:

Bloodbath:  A powerful tropical fruit blend specially designed to satisfy the bloodlust of every scumdog in the universe.

Spew: A primarily melon flavor with hints of mixed fruits and berries. From the wretched bowels of Scumdogs to your lips. A true Gwar classic…

Jizmoglobin: A creamy blueberry blend with notes of nut and custard. Each bottle of Jizmoglobin is freshly harvested by Skulhedface herself.

German Chocolate Beefcake: A sweet cake flavor with the perfect combination of chocolate, coconut, and caramel. This liquid was concocted on the planet cholesterol.

GWARY4: Our lords and masters Gwar commanded we make an Ry4 worthy of them. This is our take on a classic vanilla caramel tobacco flavor.

Keyslyme Pie: Gorge yourself on the loathsome fruit of Slymenstra’s labor! Keyslyme Pie is a sadistic twist on a classic key lime pie recipe. Delight in the sweet taste of destruction!

Immortal Corruptor: This delectable e-juice drowns pineapple, marshmallow, and whipped cream in an infernal sea of pistachio pudding. Are you worthy of sweet, sweet corruption?

Antarctic Ice: Throw your taste buds into the deep-freeze with Antarctic Ice, a relentless hodgepodge of dragonfruit and citrus, frozen solid by savage gales of menthol.

Be sure to buy a couple of bottles if you’ve never tried them, or restock if you’re running low!

    Is GWAR an international, national or local act? What kind of venues do they play and how large is their average audience? Sounds like they have a lot going on in their shows. . . Just curious, I have a friend who owns a venue, mostly heavy metal. He is always looking to book. He definitely supports vaping.

    • John Swanke says:

      GWAR is an intergalactic force. They craft a bizarre and unique brand of music, I’d guess you’d call it metal, that is truly out of this world. Do a little digging online and you might be surprised, even shocked by what you find.

  • Miguelski says:

    Cool kids from the 90s remember GWAR. And maybe even remember being tossed into a giant meatgrinder or the mouth of a giant maggot on stage at a show [if exceptionally cool]

  • Nate Warner says:

    GWAR was the first show I went to see. It was a experience I will never for get. They are still to this day one of my favorite band. They are like no other.
