When the band was first created most of its musical genre consisted of simple songs which were short. Gwar the band, then evolved their musical style over the years into massive hardcore inspired crossover thrash music. This transformation in their musical style can be heard in the albums “America Must Be Destroyed”, “Scumbags of the Universe” and “This Toilet Earth”. As time went by, this experimental style of music was then converted into a chaotic combination of all types of genres which were more evident in their albums by the names of “Ragnarok” and “Carnival of Chaos”. The “Ragarok” album of the band’s featured a diverse variety in their musical style of any point in the career of the band. “We Kill Everything” another album of the band that was released in 1999 presented to the world an altogether different and unique sound. The sound in the album was largely influenced by the band’s “Hell-O” period. This experiment ended up in the band confessing that the “We Kill Everything” album was probably their worst release since their inception. The band’s disapproval of “We Kill Everything” drove them into going back to their original thrash metal genre of music. With the release of “Violence Has Arrived”, the band’s music took a new route towards a more technical sound of music derived from the thrash metal genre. This new experiment of the band went well and can be heard in: “Beyond hell”, “Bloody Pit of Horror”, “War Party” and “Lust in Space”.
Nearly all of the extremely unique costumes that the Gwar band wears while performing on the live on stage performances of theirs are made out of Styrofoam, foam latex and hardened rubber. The costumes that they wear cover very little parts of their bodies while the rest of their bodies are covered in heavy makeup. They make their concerts really interesting by spraying fluids of different kinds on the audiences to jolt them. Many of these fluids that are sprayed on the audience are made out of pure water which has powdered food coloring elements in them. These fluids wash out and flake off with no trouble. They sometimes make the use of some thick fluids which are made out of the clear seaweed extract better known as carrageenan. It is an extract which is also used in milkshakes as well as ice creams. Thus, they are not harmful at all. The band does not make the use of stage blood or any types of syrups as that can lead to damaging the costumes of the band members who are performing on stage.
