It saddens me to say today, Cory Smoot – otherwise known as Flattus Maximus – has been found dead by fellow bandmates.
The band’s frontman Dave Brockie, or Oderus Urungus, released a short statement to Metal Sucks breaking the news. He wrote:
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.
He explained that the cause of death is as yet unexplained and there has been no decision made about the remainder of the band’s current North American tour dates or the band’s future.

“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,” he added, saying a full statement will be released over the coming days.

Smoot joined the sci-fi and fantasy inspired band in 2002 and also co-produced their 2006 album ‘Beyond Hell’ and follow up ‘Lust In Space’. He was the longest serving member to portray the Flattus Maximus character in the band’s history. Gwar formed in 1984 in Richmond, Virginia.
