Expect? Well it's exactly what I expected.
Want? If it's a concept album, something cool along the lines of a semi-interesting story ala Ragnarok(or any of the films except It's Sleazy, even then that's better) or, if not songs that aren't all about boring, over-the-top metal or violence. Musically, for them to stop playing generic metal and either revert back to punk or at least throw in some other styles of music. Stylistically, for them to stop trying to be cool and go back to the "art-fag" drug induced weirdness they used to be about.

Alot of the bohabs say they should stop playing metal and go back to punk but most of their albums are metal, the only ones that are mainly punk are Hell-o and We Kill Everything.

Yes. And Hell-O is better than everything they have done since Ragnarok. By "metal" most are probably refering to VHA-LIS, which is all just normal metal and lacks anything interesting that used to define GWAR's sound. All the albums incorporated weird things and often punk to, so it's not like they abandoned it at Hell-O.

Theirs still some punk-ish songs on the last 4 albums but not nearly as much variety as the 90's albums.

i agree about that artwork, but i wasn't expecting much.

the new song's not bad. i just want to see them and listen to their old albums, i really don't care as much what they put out musically nowadays, i'll still listen to it but no matter how bland it could get, they will never stop being one of my favorite bands ever, and my opinion would never change.

Edit: Found it

I kinda like the new song but if the rest of the album is like this it will probably take a little getting used to.
