Heavy metal lost another pioneer of its genre this weekend as Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus of the band GWAR, was found dead on Sunday night.

It was with heavy hearts that many metal publications reported on the news, as GWAR has been a long-standing pillar of the metal community with their outrageous costumes and stage shows. Since 1984, GWAR has stood as one of the leading innovators in metal music, even during times when the scene lacked anything else remotely original.

Following his death, a whole lotta people took to Twitter to give their condolences and share memories of the fallen frontman.

Many fans have lasting memories of GWAR shows.

Many called him the “greatest frontman.”

And even Moby sent his condolences.

This about sums it up.
