The guitarist with Gwar has been found dead.

The band, who made their name with the blood, guts and entrails live show which I witnessed a few times in the late eighties had been touring when, Cory Smoot AKA Flattus Maximus died. Smoot joined the band in 2002 and was quickly established in their live show that was theatrical rock with lots of blood and madness.

The shows I saw years ago were a sort of precursor to Slipknot with their use of shock tactics and a love of comic book culture.

The band’s frontman Dave Brockie, or Oderus Urungus, released a short statement stating…
‘ It is with a sense of profound loss and tragedy that the members of Gwar must announce the passing of their longtime guitarist and beloved friend Cory Smoot, also known to thousands of metal fans worldwide as Flattus Maximus.’

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  5. I’m still learning from you, as I’m trying to achieve my goals. I certainly liked reading everything that is written on your blog.Keep the aarticles coming. I liked it!

  6. Wonderful work! This is the type of info that should be shared across the internet. Shame on Google for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and discuss with my site . Thank you =)

  7. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
