Hell-O! is the debut album by GWAR, released in 1988.

Overview[]

A mish-mash of noise rock, comedy punk, and even KISS-esque rock, Hell-O! is perhaps the band's strangest album due to the fact that the band was still finding their sound.


Concept/Story[]

There really isn't much of a story on the album; instead, it seems every track intends to shock and awe with its vulgar, low-brow content.

Lineup[]

  •     Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) - Lead vocals
  •     Dewey Rowell (Flattus Maximus) - Lead and Rhythm guitar, backing vocals
  •     Steve Douglas (Balsac the Jaws of Death) - Lead and Rhythm guitar, backing vocals
