Indiana metal band defaces Dimebag Darrell's grave

Nuclear Hellfrost Members of a Fort Wayne, IN thrash/death/black metal band called Nuclear Hellfrost allegedly disrespected the grave of late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, then went on Tumblr to boast about it. The since-deleted post (the Tumblr account has been deleted as well) showed a photo of the grave with the following caption (you can view their photo/post below):
"i HATE pantera...with a passion. and so does the rest of my band. so on tour going throug texas we paid douchebag darrell a visit, we spit on his grave, stole a pair of cowboy boots, and i wrote "FAG" on his grave... i'm not a homophobe but i hope all panturrrra fans see this and shit themselves with anger....FUCK DIMEBAG, buncha racist hillbillies"
Not surprisingly, it seems as if this fellow has gotten his wish, as a firestorm is currently brewing amongst Pantera fans, many of whom are using the Internet to threaten the band with various forms of bodily harm. You can have a look at Nuclear Hellfrost's Facebook page if you're curious. Thus far, neither the group nor their record label, Eternal Warfrost Productions, has publicly commented on the controversy. The Pantera camp, however, has. Here's what they had to say:
"We are absolutely disgusted by this! We ask that all of you please show Dime and his grave the respect he deserves. This conduct will not be tolerated and the authorities have been notified."
UPDATE: The band has now issued a statement in which they claim that it was their ex-singer who made the original post as some sort of publicity stunt. You can read their statement here. Nuclear Hellfrost disrespects Dimebag's grave site

When trying to boost your band goes wrong. Inbred fcktards.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:04:08 PM

This band is going to get shot.

tinahardegree 2/28/2015 1:04:27 PM

My suggestion to anyone who has these guys on your venue,you may want to cancel their part in the show or be prepared to hire lots of extra security. They made a huge idiotic mistake by defacing Dimebags grave!

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:04:41 PM

im following this very closely...its gonna be hell to pay u stupid muther fcker hillbilly justice is gonna hurt!!

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:05:22 PM

Pantera alerted the authorities? About what? Pussies.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:11:33 PM

What a bunch of fvcking retards. They all need to be kicked swiftly in the balls. If they even have them.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:14:30 PM

fck pantera. This is a bit too far but still fck pantera and their fans.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:20:06 PM

this shitty band is going to get the beatdown of a lifetime.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:24:48 PM

Well I've gotta hand it to them for thinking outside of the box when it comes to promoting. Granted, people are going to hate them, but it's better than "check out my bands cover of Taylor Swifts 'Blank Space'"

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:26:07 PM

You wrote what but you're not a what?

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:26:42 PM

Phil Anselmo is stoked.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:28:04 PM

I am willing to bet that Dimebag doesn't really care that anyone defaced his grave. Probably because he has been dead for 10 years.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:35:18 PM

It reminds of the time I spray painted sage lover on the side of my ex girlfriends house when she broke up with me but I'm not racist.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:35:36 PM

LOL at black metal from Ft. Wayne, IN. Talk about "hillbillies".

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:39:17 PM

I got drunk and screwed a hooker there once. I threw up on it I wiped it off and finished with the slut. There were still some chunks on it but I'm sure the birds took care of that.

Lars Ulrich was there supplying the garbage cans

slow news day, eh?

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:43:15 PM

This can be solved one way, pantera gets to fight these fools. Schedule a meet up!

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:46:14 PM

I'm not mad that they defaced a grave. I'm mad that they did something illegal, admitted to it, then posted it on the internet.

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:46:32 PM

I think these guys are f*****

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:50:13 PM

gay? dime coulda got all the pssy he wanted if he wasn't happily married while alive. the only pssy these morons got was from their down syndrome having sister

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:53:28 PM

fcking pussies,Pantera rules motherfckers

anonymous 2/28/2015 1:56:39 PM

Would have been a lot cooler if they had done it to Kurt cobains sorry dead ass. That was an untalented motherfcker.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:00:26 PM

pantera blows super hard, this is hysterical. defacing the grave would have been a step too far but posting about it on the internet was just plain stupid. ugh now all their fans want to kill them, that shit's dumb and dimebag would never condone that shit on his behalf. he's fcking dead guys, get over it. I feel like every time i open a Revolver magazine they have some tribute to the guy. He wasn't hendrix. He wasn't that good and people suck his dead dck for it. pfft whatever dimeflip.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:01:06 PM

Pantera is super boring (for me) and i don't give a shit about this, but this is very offensive for the fans... jajaja pinches chingones los que hicieron esto

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:06:32 PM

dime was one of the best guitarists ever, and anyone who disagrees needs to take the gauges out of their gay emo ears

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:14:31 PM

thats a lot of hate towards a dude who just wanted to shred on guitar and have a good time. these fools need to watch a vulgar video and then tell me how much they hate Dime. hopefully they get murdered soon so we can defecate on their graves.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:25:43 PM

I suspect a repeat of Dime's fate at one of their shows. The only difference is they'll hit them all.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:26:24 PM

Calm your t-ts,it was the former lead singer who did that,cuz he was mad.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:36:34 PM

Kinda hope this guy gets locked up for a little while. Get beatd... See who's a bitch then.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:42:57 PM

Why the fck do you think they say "don't fck with Texas. You fcked with the wrong state and its legend

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:43:24 PM

They were supposed to play the 3 day fest Berserker here in Detroit, but they got dropped. It is probably for the best, considering the threats they are receiving.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:44:02 PM

I'll bet the guy who disrespected the grave, and the guy apologizing on the bands FB page, and the guy fron the record label... all the same fcking guy!

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:45:41 PM

Alright look fck heads, for those who are still badmouthing dime or pantera, YOU are just jealous cuz you suck as a band or guitarist and still NEVER be half as good as them and you know it. I'm in a band, and I know I'll never be that good or reach that accolade but I never would be such a bitch or badmouth a band like pantera. Are you gonna badmouth BLS too? Or Hellyeah? Each of these bands would beat the living fck out of you. Then end. *drops mic*

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:50:02 PM

Thy will be judged by the Lord himself. I hope they repent for their sins.

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:50:07 PM

Holy shit. The amount of people living in trailers in this comment section far surpasses ANY news story comment section this site has ever posted. Hahahahahaha

anonymous 2/28/2015 2:53:50 PM

Just read that Indiana metal band defaces the greatest guitar player from fcking Texas.These inbreeding stupid ass fcking kids haven't even played real music in their pathetic lives and they disgraced his grave and for what? As an a tempt to some how make their sad worthless lives seem better for those few minutes for a laugh. I hope they get what they deserve.

Look I don't give a flying fck if you're a Pantera fan or not but for someone in the music scene trying to advance themselves by fcking with another musicians grave isn't just illegal it's morally fcked up. Consider yourselves a target when you come to Colorado there's plenty metal family here who wouldn't mind 5 minutes alone with you pssy untalented fcks who wanted a press boost. There's a special place in purgatory for c-ck stains like you

anonymous 2/28/2015 3:07:18 PM

fck Pantera. Dime was mediocre at best. There's gotta be more worthy news than this.

Well done guys!!! F**k Pantera, F**k Darrel!!!

anonymous 2/28/2015 4:08:12 PM

It shouldn't matter if you liked Pantera or Dimebag. It's about respecting someone's final resting place.

Fake-edgy Lambgoat gays who talk shit about Pantera are card-carrying members of the Nuclear Hellfrost fan club.

anonymous 2/28/2015 7:10:49 PM

They should start and new band and be called Career guys just fcked up.

anonymous 2/28/2015 7:11:39 PM

Pantera was all ''fck shit up, fight, smash peoples faces in'' and promoted that type of shit in their music. And then people were surprised when a member of that group got SHOT and killed from a fan. Practice what you preach. Defacing graves is just gay to begin with and the band who did it are black thrash come latelys who probably suck just as bad as pantera so its a stupid situation.

OrgCore 2/28/2015 7:16:17 PM

Looks like an anonymous poster on Lambgoat outed himself.

anonymous 2/28/2015 7:22:50 PM

NUCLEAR HELLFROST is actually a pretty cool name for a band. They are actually a really good band. A lot better than fcking Pantera...Pantera's early stuff was okay, but most of their stuff is actually garbage...

anonymous 2/28/2015 7:52:23 PM

All u dumb asses thT say Pantera is lame should really pull Ur head out of ur asses and realize Pantera had a huge impact in the Metal work!!!! fck all you haters!!! Long live Dimebag

not cool, not cool. they were racist tho. ha.

anonymous 2/28/2015 8:20:07 PM

Guys I'm really passionate about tolerance and hate those evil racist hillbilly southerners who can't appreciate starbucks like my morally superior self. Gee, I know what I'll do to show those intolerant shitlords. I'll desecrate a grave and write "gay" on it. I'm so progressive and smart. And LOL at the people here trying to piece together some bullshit argument for why this is totally ok and defend this immature classless act.

anonymous 2/28/2015 9:46:56 PM

I like Pantera and they left their mark whether anyone likes it or not but that's beside the point. How would anyone who commented on this post talkin shit feel if some defiled some grave of a person you cared about? You would be in a fury of rage so honestly to anyone commented something rude I hope it happens to you

Every gay on here talks shit about wanting some band flip their van and causing them to die. But when someone half ass defiles Dimebags grave everyone gets butt hurt. Send out the toothless beer sucking inbreds to get payback for the all mighty dckbag Derral.

anonymous 3/1/2015 1:30:51 AM

Retards, texans(also retards), kkk members, bearded man(aka other retards), bricklayers and truck drivers are stoked. Actual intelligent people think he should go to jail for a stupid illegal act, and really don't care whose grave it is.

anonymous 3/1/2015 2:29:40 AM

Plain and simple if you have to deface a grave a shit talk a band to get any publicity then you are a shit band and after this, regardless if it was only the ex-singer, the band is on the shit list, they aren't getting any real shows without death threats. Dug the band's grave right there.

anonymous 3/1/2015 6:45:27 AM

Peeing on a grave and writing gay on a piece of paper isn't nearly as funny as all the toothless, inbred, truck driving, busch light drinking pantera hillbillies getting butthurt over it. Dimebag probably thought you were all a bunch of gays and is probably happy to be worm food instead of playing a bunch of smelly ass shows for you disgusting trailer trash. Go worry about a real problem and brush your teeth while you're at it you overweight child support dodging white trash neanderthals.

anonymous 3/1/2015 6:50:44 AM

What this band did was disrespectful towards Dime, but did they deface his grave? The answer is no. Writing gay on apiece of paper & leaving it on his headstone doesn't qualify as vandalism. They did themselves & everyone else a favor with their careers by killing it. Nuclear Hellfrost music is just fcking Horrible!!!nmoun

anonymous 3/1/2015 6:55:08 AM written on apiece of paper.

anonymous 3/1/2015 7:00:08 AM

anonymous 3/1/2015 9:01:26 AM

And honestly, who gives a shit that dimebags grave got spit on and paper got left on it? The paper probably blew away. This is the most idiotic thing and people are getting crazy about it. Do these people pay attention to what's going on in the world...and THIS is what they're mad about? That's disgusting and pathetic. Threatening to "beat him up" like some middle school brawl...get it together.

anonymous 3/1/2015 9:11:21 AM

To you Reece Eber... If I knew you, or hell, if I even saw you... I'd spit on your face, write gay on your forehead, torture you, and then proceed to kill you. I'd show up to your funeral, tip your coffin over, and kick your dead body's face. None of your friends or or family members would ask any questions. They'd simply understand my actions as a reaction to yours. It's too late for apologies. What you did deserves death. I hope someone can take care of that.

anonymous 3/1/2015 10:29:56 AM

i hope you and your bandmates die in a horrific crash where you all are mutalated and exposed in the middle of the street where we can all pee and take a shit on your corpses like you did dimebag darrell fck face

The authorities have been notified and will hopefully arrest these punks where when they get to jail I am sure a Pantera fan will hand them their asses. That being said lets not give these losers undeserved attention. And for the band being an Indiana boy myself it's probally a good idea to disband.

God forbid you actually write songs that matter, or even matter as a band anyways. I only heard of these disrespectful suckers because I was checking out dimes guitars online just remembering him. If that puts these wastes of time people in prospective for anybody else. Your band name is probably the most generic middle school garage band name I've ever heard as well. Just stay home instead of tour, nobody really gives a shit about you anyways. ALL HAIL MIGHTY DIME!
