Overview

As the title implies, it is a concept album about the Scumdogs' Gwar reign of terror on planet Earth the song "Death Pod" explains exactly how they came to Earth to begin with The production is very refined compared to the independent, rushed first attempt with each successive album sounding more and more refined Gwar began to experiment with samples to some degree eg in the song, "Maggots" The songs are more socially relevant in this album as well Examples include "Slaughterama" which involves Gwar killing hippies and nazi-skinheads in a game show-style fashion and the opening track, "The Salaminizer", in which the first verse was inspired by/based on "Gangsta, Gangsta", a song by the breakthrough rap group NWA Other references include history Vlad the Impaler and Lovecraft mythology Horror of Yig Most of the album is centered on twisted jokes about insane medical practices and sexual perversion This album is viewed by many of Gwar's fans as well as Gwar themselves as their ultimate masterpiece Thus the band will play more songs from Scumdogs than any other album "Sick of You" is the most frequently played song in concert, generally the grand finale

This is the first Gwar album on which more than two people sing lead Hell-O had Oderus Urungus and Techno Destructo: "Slaughterama" features Sleazy P Martini, Sexecutioner sings his namesake song, and the album's CD exclusive closer, "Cool Place To Park," debuts bassist Beefcake the Mighty as a vocalist All other songs featured Oderus

Additionally, Danielle Stampe Slymenstra Hymen, Michael Derks Balsac the Jaws of Death, Chuck Varga Sexecutioner, and Brad Roberts Jizmak Da Gusha make their debuts on this album

Reception

In 2016, Scumdogs of the Universe was ranked #90 on Loudwire's Top 90 Hard Rock + Metal Albums of the 1990s lists[2]
