Vocalist Randy Blythe of Richmond, Virginia Metal band LAMB OF GOD has released the following statement regarding the passing of GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot (a.k.a Flattus Maximus):
"I am very saddened by the passing our friend Cory Smoot (a.k.a Flattus Maximus) of GWAR. He was an awesome dude and a great guitar player, as well as a talented engineer and producer. I recorded guest vocals for a few projects at his studio and as a friend he refused to take my money in payment for the sessions. Last session just gave me some killer tracks of his solo work and asked me if I ever had time to lay down some vocals for him. I really regret now not having had the opportunity to record those sessions with him. He was always fun to tour with, hang with, and we will be deeply missed, especially in our hometown of Richmond. It was an honor to work with such a kind human being.
