Damageplan

Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul started forming up Damageplan in early 2003, soon after the demise of their previous band, thrash metal heroes Pantera. The brothers began working on tracks at Dime's Dallas home studio, unsure of exactly what they'd do with the material, but determined to banish the bad taste of Pantera's awkward breakup. Ex-Halford and -Diesel Machine guitarist (and full-time Dime pal) Pat Lachman heard the demos and expressed interest in singing for the project. While he'd never served as a frontman, Lachman's performances over the raw material were strong enough to land him the vocalist position. The lineup was completed with the addition of local bassist Bob Kakaha, who was immediately dubbed Bob Zilla for his monstrous tone, and the quartet began hashing out the new material under the working title of New Found Power. By October 2003 they'd decided on Damageplan, with New Found Power becoming the name of their Elektra debut. The album dropped in February 2004 to considerable buzz, mostly from Pantera's existing fan base. Longtime fans weren't disappointed as New Found Power did echo Dime and Vinnie's previous work. But it moved in new directions too, exploring more melodic post-grunge avenues and tinging its sound with slight elements of nu-metal's electronic throb. New Found Power did well through the summer, buoyed by a solid round of dates from the band. But tragedy struck on December 8, 2004 at the Alrosa Village rock club in Columbus, Ohio, when Dimebag Darrell and three other men were murdered in a bizarre and unfortunate altercation with a disgruntled fan. A man appeared on stage with a gun just after the beginning of Damageplan's set and, after allegedly making comments laying blame for Pantera's breakup on Dimebag, shot and killed the guitarist at point blank range. The assailant, later identified as 25-year old Marysville, Ohio resident Nathan Gale, killed three other men before he was killed by local police, including a concertgoer, club employee, and Damageplan bodyguard Jeff "Mayhem" Thompson. Memorials after the shootings remembered the victims and wondered at Gale's motives, while the future of Damageplan was unclear as its surviving members grieved. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

C.thomas67 we say we miss someone regardless of the fact that we knew or didnt know the person. When a band makes a mark on your life u feel a connection with them, so when tragedy hits the band as in the case with dime you grieve for the life lost and the could have been. Do i miss darrell dimebag abbott, everyday and so does the rest if the rock/metal world.

At the risk of stating the obvious, such a shame we lost one of the greatest guitar players of our time at such a young age. I'm still discovering nuances about his playing to this day that made his so great. And to think he was almost in Megadeth. That would've been something but then again, there might have been no Pantera. RIP Dime!

Dimebag has some of the best shreds ive heard. And he created his own sound. I pray that he was saved before he was killed. You guys should look up this guy Howard Storm on youtube.. he was an athiest professor that died and went to hell and came back to tell about it. Just like when someone dies and there are nice, positive, figures that take to heaven... theres also evil,dark, figures that are waiting to take you to hell. F**kin scary.

Vulgar Display of Shouse said it best. You can't die better any other way, than dying doing what you love. Being murdered should never happen, but we should all be so lucky to be as happy as Dime was, and he certainly went to the other side with his best friend with him. I heard he was also buried with one of Eddie Van Halen's Kramer axes (the black and yellow one).

at this point any R.I.P.'S is rather forced its like saying JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH R.I.P. but i am very ignorant and semi- (if not fully ) retarded and of course knew the story,being a longtime pantera fan,and only heard the damageplan cd today.it f**kin rawks.i work with people like the guy who did the shooting and he was proably given a command hallucinatio n . d i m e b a g , l e n n o n , j e s u s - o t h e r percieved people of power can have their greatness misconstrued in wounded minds.we all know that...

I have never been more torn by the loss of someone I've never met... Dime was SO goddamn influential on modern metal, and I will never understand why someone would want to deprive the world of his unique genius.

dimebag is a genius. Doesn't sound like pantera. Its a grungier sound and a slower pace, but the guitar is still genius and blends amazingly with vinnie paul.
