    News
    [h=1]Report: Gwar Frontman Dave Brockie Found Dead[/h]Written by Greg Moskovitch on 24th March, 2014
    [​IMG] Reports have surfaced that David Brockie, known to fans as Oderus Urungus, the boastful, sardonic frontman of Richmond, Virginia satirical thrash metal outfit GWAR, has died. The news broke via Richmond outlet Style Weekly, with no word yet from the band or Brockie’s management.
    Brockie’s roommates reportedly found the 50-year-old frontman’s body at his home on Sunday evening. “I wish it was a joke. Everyone is in shock,†said Chris Bopst, former band member and music writer for Style. Brockie had just finished a tour of Japan following Soundwave 2014.
    Music Feeds has contacted Soundwave PR, who were unable to confirm the news of Brockie’s death, but indicated that an official statement is expected around 4:00am AEDT. Maric Media, the band’s Australian promoter, has attempted to get in touch with the band’s management in the US.
    The band toured Australia in a year in which they marked their 30th anniversary, stirring controversy by including an effigy of Tony Abbott in their infamous stage show, whose trademarks include horror-style stage spectacles including beheadings, as was bestowed upon Mr Abbott.
    Speaking to Music Feeds at Soundwave in Sydney, Brockie, in pure GWAR fashion, described the PM as a “necrotic, vampyritic, thing-like beast,†later releasing a statement explaining that Mr Abbott wandered onto the stage mid-performance, “so naturally I removed his head.â€
    GWAR formed in Richmond, Virginia in 1984. Describing themselves as the “Scumdogs of the Universe,†the band are renowned for their messy live shows, outlandish space-monster costumes and personas, and satirical theatrics. Brockie as Oderus served as frontman and spokesperson.
    In 2011, the splatter-thrash icons suffered the loss of guitarist Cory Smoot, who went by the moniker Flattus Maximus for over ten years. The 34-year-old Smoot was discovered dead on the band’s tour bus.
    This story is unconfirmed and currently developing. We will update you as details come to hand

    A 50 year old living with roommates? I guess the metal scene isn't paying well.

    An amazingly talented artist cut short in his prime. Prayers and thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.

    GWAR is cool. I hope they still like tour and stuff. It would totally suck if they quit.
