Cory Smoot CD Release / Memorial Show Is A Huge Success

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal guitarists, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock guitarists, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on January 16, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

On Saturday night, January 7th, 2012, the Metal community took another step in dealing with the tragic death of long-time GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot by holding the first of two events in a three-show schedule of shows designed to support the Smoot Family Foundation and honor the life of this prolific artist, who died of a heart attack this past November at the age of only 34.

Cory had played the role of Flattus Maximus in the world’s most infamous band for eleven years, as well as participated in many side projects, while at the same time producing and engineering tons of records at his always busy Karma Studios. In doing so he had become a treasured part of the local and national Metal scene, and they turned out in force to both events, opening their hearts to Cory’s family in a completely selfless display of solidarity, respect, and generosity.

Cory’s widow, Jaime, who is pregnant with Cory’s child, had this message for the fans-

“I want to sincerely thank ALL the friends and fans for their amazing donations and support!! Thanks to Eve and Brent for organizing the events, to the businesses that contributed raffle prizes, and to the venues and bands for making the shows awesome!! You guys made Cory, the baby and me very proud!”

Show highlights included Lamb of God lead singer Randy Blythe singing for thrashers Cannabis Corpse. Blythe was later joined by Municipal Waste lead singer Tony Foresta in shearing off five years of hair from GWAR lead singer Dave Brockie’s head, which was raffled off to a lucky winner but ended up everywhere. But the most stirring performance came from Cory’s band mates Mensrea, who pulled themselves together for a powerful and emotional tribute to the life of this truly amazing man.

The show Saturday night at the Canal Club was also the CD release party for Cory’s solo record, When Worlds Collide, which will be coming out on Metal Blade Records soon. The next planned event is on March 16th, when GWAR, Municipal Waste, and Ghoul will play at the National Theater. All funds raised at the show will go to the Smoot Family Fund. For those who can’t make it and still wish to donate, they can do so HERE.

Rest In Peace, Cory Smoot.

GWAR – In the midst of their two year long celebration of their 25th Anniversary – Slay – A – Bration, GWAR will be having their 13th studio album released on November 9, 2010. (I’m including in their “13” studio albums the 1992 EP – The Road Behind, hell, it has seven songs on it for Metal sakes and it counts). Bloody Pit Of Horror is the new studio album of 11 songs, releasing on Metal Blade Records. It is always comforting to know, that GWAR is lurking around the galaxy and giving us Metalheads on Earth another brand new album to annihilate our eardrums with… just 9 days after Halloween too.
