The results to the autopsy are in…

Gwar guitarist Cory Smoot passed away last month. The cause of death was finally uncovered, in case you wanted gritty details about his passing. Here’s what some doctor said:

We have finalized the autopsy report and death certificate. I have determined that Cory died from a coronary artery thrombosis brought about by his pre-existing coronary artery disease.

Oh, so it was just a coronary artery thrombosis brought about by his coronary artery disease? Oh, okay. Therefore it’s okay for Gwar to just go on and tour… [/shitty sarcasm]

At least the band set up a foundation for Cory’s wife and her son. You can visit it here, and maybe you can make a donation too.


GWAR guitar player dies

If you’re a fan of GWAR, then chances are you’ve  already heard that guitarist Cory Smoot was found dead yesterday.

“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. Cory was found deceased this morning as the band prepared for a border crossing. There is no word as to the cause of death and the members of GWAR are completely shocked and devastated that this has occurred.

“At this point, there is no word on arrangements and the disposition of the remainder of GWAR‘s current North American tour, nor are there any details regarding long-term plans.

“At this point, we are just dealing with the loss of our dear friend and brother, one of the most talented guitar players in metal today.

“We ask that our fans and the media be respectful of our request for privacy for those that have suffered this terrible loss. A full statement will be coming in the next day or so. In the meantime, please give your thoughts and your prayers to Cory, his family, and all the people that love him.”

Now I’m not going to  pretend I was a big  GWAR fan like some would after an artist dies, but I did witness a GWAR show six years ago and it was fantastic.  When seeing  GWAR live , you get an awesome stage show,  slime/fake blood covered on you if you’re in the first few rows, fake weapons involved, violence, and a lot more that I can’t remember because I have bad memory.  Actually, I’m pretty sure I saw some boobies as well.  They just have so much crazy stuff going on.  It’s very entertaining for anyone to see live.

We at Dose Of Metal give our condolences to the family of Cory Smoot and to everyone in GWAR.
