Cory Smoot

Guitar World online has the exclusive stream to a song off The Cory Smoot Experiment! The song is called “Mutilation” and comes off his post humous Metal Blade release “When Worlds Collide.” The album comes out June 5th and all proceeds will be donated to the Smoot Family Fund.

Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus of GWAR had this to say about his fallen guitarist:
“Cory Smoot is one of the great unsung heroes of metal. His musical abilities transformed GWAR from a splatter-thrash phenomena into a top metal act. And though he may have left us way too early, he left us a lifetime of music to listen to. He tore it up like few others, and will always be remembered as the true Flattus Maximus. We really loved the man, and there is not a day that goes by or a GWAR show that is played where he is not sorely missed.”

There are also two shirts up to Celebrate Cory’s life and again proceeds will be donated to help out his family.
