Liquid Metal’s Shawn trekked out to this year’s GWAR-B-Q in Hadad’s Lake in beautiful Richmond, Virginia, for two days of bittersweet, blood soaked carnage.

Friday consisted of the Viking Funeral of the beloved and dearly departed Oderus Urungus, fallen frontman/thing of GWAR, his costume immolated out on Hadad’s Lake, lit up by a flaming arrow shot at the gasoline drenched boat. Although a sad occasion, still a very special one shared amongst all the fellow Scumdogs. That same night, Detroit’s own THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER headlined the “B4BQ” show at The Southberry in Richmond, and Shawn was fortunate enough to pull aside Trevor Strnad, Black Dahlia Murder frontman, for a quick interview.

Saturday Shawn caught up w/ some of the amazing bands on the bill, Iron Reagan, Body Count, Noisem, Eat The Turnbuckle (a wrestling themed metal band, using real barbed wire and spilling buckets of their own blood on the hot concrete to open the show up at 10:30am?!) and of course the almighty Scumdogs in GWAR!

SiriusXM Liquid Metal was there to capture this momentous occasion and now you can hear the behind the scene madness as its broadcast to fans nationwide who were not fortunate enough to make it out to the show!!

SiriusXM Remembers

Remembering Mario Comesanas

It is with heavy hearts that we here at SiriusXM say farewell to our fellow metal soldier and Liquid Metal host Mario Comesanas. Mario peacefully passed away the evening of June 13 in Jersey City, NJ, due to an aggressive form of leukemia from which Mario was very recently diagnosed with at 30 years young. Our thoughts are with his fiancé, family, friends and fans worldwide.

“Hey everybody this is Jamey from Hatebreed. He was a really great guy. Always looked out for me. Great supporter of Hardcore and Heavy Metal and this is just such a huge loss for the scene. Guys like Mario are few and far between. I'm really just deeply saddened by this. My deepest sympathies to Sirius XM Liquid Metal Listeners and Marios family and close friends, my heart goes out to you.”

Mario started his radio career at Seton Hall’s pirate radio station in New Jersey, then joined the SiriusXM family back in 2002 where he came on as one of the original satellite metal DJs. Since then he’s help spread heavy metal music and, more importantly, hardcore music to a massive audience both on and off the air, through his work with Revolver Magazine and RED Distribution, as well as in his own bands December Aeternalis and more recently Low Road, who just finished recording their debut with Joey Z from Life Of Agony producing.

“This is Joey Z from Life Of Agony. Mario was a genuine caring friend. Most enthusiastic person you'll ever meet. We had the greatest time. He dropped some great, great vocal tracks. He's the type of person that always knew what he wanted, and worked hard to get it. He just left a little too young. From all of us, we love you brother. We'll never forget you.”

Mario’s passion for music, energy, spirit, laugh and attitude towards life, video games and metal will live on forever.

“Mario my brother this is Roger from Agnostic Front. Everything we've done together, musically, that kind of stuff, that’s true brotherhood that lives forever. The Superbowl [of Hardcore], all the bands you love I love, all the great New York bands. Just want to say that your dedication, your commitment, was one of those that stood the test of time. And I could just see you out there, taking a stage dive for Hardcore. For the love of it all man. You’re a good dude brother. God rest your soul.”

Rest In Peace, dear friend. You will be missed and never forgotten. Heaven just got heavier…
