Talk about a cowardly act. Pantera just posted this image below on their Official Facebook page, and fans everywhere are rightfully pissed.
While the Instagram account of “crustyplague” is no longer active, due to being bombarded with threats from metal fans everywhere, sources tell us that the band Nuclear Hellfrost is responsible, and they are now enemy number one in all of our minds.
No matter if you dislike a band for whatever reason, vandalizing a grave of a fallen icon is no way to go about it. If these pieces of shit are trying to gain exposure from this act, well they went about it in the worst way. Dimebag was loved by all, and to show him this disrespect is beyond me, and like you, I’m pissed. Consider this band’s career over, and hopefully the law gets to them quick, because they deserve punishment for this horrific act immediately. RIP Dime.
The band has responded with this statement: “The posts about us and to us are a complete surprise to us. Anything having to do with grave desecration was entirely a hoax put on by our former lead singer completely disconnected from the other members of the band. If you see Dimebag’s grave you can see there is nothing carved into his grave, the only thing that exists is a photo of a piece of paper posted by the former member. We are strongly against any sort of homophobia, racism, or outright disrespect for a human being. We have nothing but the utmost respect for Dimebag and this is a misguided political publicity stunt that we were dragged into by a former member with an awful sense of humor. Nuclear Hellfrost as a band would like to apologize on this former member’s behalf to not only Dimebag’s fans, but most importantly his family. Again, the members of Nuclear Hellfrost had absolutely ZERO actual involvement in any of the alleged actions described by our former singer. Again, nothing but respect to Dimebag as a human being and condolences to his family. These are fabricated and contrived allegations on the internet that never happened in real life.”
Whether their statement is true or not, the damage has been done. Time to look for a desk job you pieces of scum.
