It is with a deep heart, complete regret and devastation that we must report today that Dave Brockie a.k.a. Oderus Urungus, has passed away.
Brockie was a legend in the metal world and has been one of the most controversial and respected individuals in all of music. It’s beyond shocking hard to believe that Brockie, 50, is now gone and no longer with us and he leaves behind a legacy that can be described in one word- legendary.

The metal world will never be the same without the insane antics of Oderus Urungus. Rest in Peace to the Scumdog of the Universe, may his memory and legacy live on forever.
