    GWAR frontman Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus passed away unexpectedly back in March. Now, a Richmond, Virginia news station has revealed the cause of the singer's death.

    Brockie died of an accidental heroin overdose.

    A roommate discovered the musician unresponsive in his home on March 23. Evidence of heroin use was found at the scene, but the cause of death was not revealed until the tox reports came in.

    Brockie was 50 when he died. R.I.P. He is sorely missed by friends, family and fans.

    Were you a fan of GWAR, who mixed metal and, for lack of a better word, theater? Will you check out their past efforts? You should! They really rewrote the book on the visuals for a live hard rock band, with their costumes, storylines and props!
