About Flattus Maximus
View Full Biography
Flattus Maximus (Cory Smoot) was the guitarist for the heavy metal band Gwar. Tragically, on November 3rd, 2011...Cory passed away due to a heart condition. He was an absolute pleasure to work with as a part of GWAR. It was an honor and a pleasure to know and hang out with him out of costume as Cory Smoot. RIP buddy. You'll be continued to be loved and missed.
Cory was known by his red face, white dreadlocks, dinosaur-head shoulder pads and reptile feet. The name "Flattus" implies (verified by various concerts) a flatulent character. His speaking mannerisms suggest a childlike intelligence and naivety (until recently; his entries in the current website's blog depict a different, more violent Flattus).
Cory's lessons are taught in full costume. He teaches 4 Gwar songs. Beware..this guy has a ferocious right hand so make sure you have your metal chops up to par before attempting his lessons.
