Gwar Frontman Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus) Passes Away at Age 50

Gwar frontman Dave Brockie has died at the age of 50.

The metal star, known to fans by his stage name Oderus Urungus, was found dead at his home yesterday evening (March 23) by his roommate.

Lamb of God frontman Randall Blythe wrote on Instagram: “I got a very sad call tonight from my buddy Chris Bopst, who was one of the original members of GWAR- my friend Dave Brockie, AKA Oderus Urungus, the singer of GWAR, has left the building & taken off back to his home planet”.

Former Gwar guitarist Steve Douglas wrote on Facebook: “I have had a few bad days in my life but this one truly ranks right up there.

“Dave Brockie, I do not know what happened to you yet, but I know you are gone and it is hurting very badly!”

Brockie founded Gwar in 1984 and the band released their 13th studio album Battle Maximus last year.

The band were due to play their fifth GWAR-B-Q at Hadad’s Water Park in Richmond, VA on Saturday, August 16.

There has not yet been an official statement from the band or their representatives.
