The grave of late legendary Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was vandalised about two days ago, allegedly by a man named Reece Eber, the ex-vocalist of Indiana death/thrash/black metal band Nuclear Hellfrost.
The news first came when a post appeared on Pantera’s Facebook page, showing an Instagram post (seen left) allegedly from Nuclear Hellfrost depicting the defacing of Dimebag’s grave. Both the post and the account have since been deleted, but pictures of it have been circulated nonetheless. The authorities have been notified, according to Pantera’s page.
This resulted in a severe backlash against Nuclear Hellfrost by Pantera fans on their social media, as a reaction to which the band issued the following 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.
What's your reaction?
