www.portlandmercury.com/portland/roseland/Location?oid=69324">Roseland, 8 NW 6th) The Scumdogs of the Universe absorbed a major blow in 2011, when Gwar guitarist Cory Smoot, AKA Flattus Maximus, passed away unexpectedly. This year, Oderus Urungus & Co. unveiled Battle Maximus, the band's tribute to their fallen brother. It's a fun piece of goofy thrash metal, but Gwar is never going to be known for their records—not when there are politicians to decapitate, audiences to douse in fake blood, and an entire human race to enslave. It's the metal show to end all metal shows, and to further the cause, there's an online petition at change.org to get Gwar on the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show. It's attracted more than 43,000 "signatures" so far. Dare to dream. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
