As one of the most over-the-top theatrical concert presentations in all of rock, a live document from GWAR seems like a natural fit. The only problem is, what if it's a live CD with no visuals to accompany it? Therein lies the problem with their 2005 release, Live from Mt. Fuji. While die-hard GWAR fans (and there are quite a few of them roaming the earth) may get a kick out of such tracks as "Bring Back the Bomb," "Crush Kill Destroy," and "Bonesnapper," without actually seeing all the costume-wearing fun, it sounds pretty much like your run of the mill extreme metal band. Even GWAR themselves would probably agree that their stage show is their primary focus (with the music being secondary) -- as evidenced by the multitude of home videos/DVDs they've released over the years. For GWAR worshipers only.
