The metal community lost an essential piece of its foundation in the early morning of Dec. 23 with the death of Ministry / Rigor Mortis / Revolting Cocks guitarist Mike Scaccia. While demonstrating his shredding abilities with Rigor Mortis to celebrate the 50th birthday of vocalist Bruce Corbitt, Scaccia collapsed onstage from a heart attack, later being pronounced dead at a Dallas hospital. Perhaps needing some time to collect his thoughts, GWAR singer Dave 'Oderus Urungus' Brockie has just written a long tribute to his fallen friend.
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus was the guest on Full Metal Jackie's radio this past weekend. The menacing monster talked all about the 2012 presidential campaign, new guitarist Pustulus Maximus, Hurricane Sandy and more. Check out Full Metal Jackie's full chat with GW
It still doesn't seem real that Beastie Boys member Adam 'MCA' Yauch passed away earlier this year. As a part of one of modern music's most definitive group, the man was an innovator of the highest order. There has been countless tributes paid to MCA since his death, and the latest homage was delivered with style by GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus and current tourmates Cancer Bats, as they came together for a performance of the Beastie Boys classic 'Sabotage.'
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus is in the upper ranks when it comes to tearing humans apart both physically and orally. When he's not ripping the limbs off celebrities and disemboweling politicians onstage, Oderus' favorite pasttime is bashing those he feels are inferior to himself. In this most recent display, Oderus goes after both Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, while taking the credit for Slipknot's existence.
Having emerged from his coffin with a fistful of Jagermeister, GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus graced us with an exclusive interview. Thanks to the band, GWAR interviews are always comedic gold, but this Q&A session was extra special, as it features new guitarist Pustulus Maximus in his first ever interview.
For the President of Heavy Metal elections, we welcome candidates from other galaxies. GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus is already Scumdogia's most metal monster, but Urungus has set his sights on planet Earth, promising swift death, pestilence and monstrous thrash regardless of whether or not he's elected.
Metal's reigning 'Prince of Darkness' now wants to be your reigning President of Heavy Metal. Black Sabbath's Ozzy Osbourne is perhaps the first true metal vocalist, having represented demonic subculture and a 'Don't try this at home' lifestyle for many years. Now vacated of his various demons, Ozzy promises that if he's elected, no man will ever urinate on the Alamo again.
GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus recently lashed out at the American mainstream media for largely ignoring the arrest of Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe on apparent manslaughter charges in Prague, Czech Republic. The always opinionated Urungus lashed out in a series of tweets, calling for further coverage to increase awareness of Blythe's unfortunate situation.
