Gwar frontman Dave Brockie has died

Billboard reports: The frontman for gore-loving heavy metal band Gwar has died. Police have confirmed earlier reports that Dave Brockie, known to fans as Oderus Urungus, was found dead at his Richmond, Va. home on Sunday evening. The singer was 50.

A Richmond police spokesperson told CBS 6 and the Richmond Times-Dispatchthat a report of a deceased individual was made at approximately 6:53 p.m. ET. "When officers arrived, they found David M. Brockie, 50, deceased inside the home," the statement reads. Foul play is not suspected at this time and officials are waiting for the Medical Examiner's office to determine cause of death.

aca Flanagan, the band's manager, issued an official statement Monday morning confirming Brockie's death. A fellow member of Gwar found the singer's body and next of kin has been notified, Flanagan said. "My main focus right now is to look after my band mates and his family," he said. "More information regarding his death shall be released as the details are confirmed."

Brockie formed Gwar in 1984 and was the last original member of the horror-inspired group. Band-members adopt outlandish, other-worldly characters like Beefcake the Mighty and Balsac the Jaws of Death, and their live concerts have become notorious for carrying out satirical scenes of blood-and-gore, often involving political or pop culture figures. The self-proclaimed "Scumdogs of the Universe" have released twelve studio albums, and were nominated twice at the Grammy Awards.
