If you didn't hear, Nuclear Hellfrost is probably the most hated band in the world right now. They really kicked the hornets nest yesterday after defiling Dimebag Darrell's grave then bragging about in online. This sent Pantera fans and the metal community into a rage like never before. You can read about in the article post just below and just feel the hate…
After countless death threats, deliveries of verbal hostility, a response from Pantera, and making the news through some ridiculous number of outlets, the band realized they done fucked up. They proceeded to back pedal in full reverse, using supposed "ex-member" and vocalist Reece Eber as a scapegoat. You can read their initial statement through the link above.
Hours later, Reece Eber wrote up an apology for his supreme stupidity which can be seen below.
My advice for Nuclear Hellfrost is to disband immediately, leave metal alone, and find another hobby far, far away. Oh yeah, and they should probably steer clear of the south for good.
"This is Reece Eber, the guy who ignorantly acted like a fool and pulled the dumbest possible delinquent act of my life… And where to begin… I've become famous today in the worst possible way. My friends and I have received death threats and multiple insults over the past day or so, I've made the news, and all I can say to sum it all up is I'm deeply sorry. I acted ignorantly and completely out of line. There is NO reason for doing what I did, and when I say "I", I mean ME alone. My friends were not present for the event and should have caught up with them when they were walking away, instead i left a piece of paper with an insult to a man many people idolize and for a cheap laugh that I didn't think about the consequences. I did not carve into it and it was a piece of paper and nothing was stolen. I'm not asking for forgiveness, I'm not asking for sympathy, I am only attempting to express an apology that I want to reach out to the people I hurt and offended with this dumb act. There is no reason for what I did and it was the worst mistake I've made in my young and evidently dumb life. I don't blame the threats and comments. I understand how you feel and that's why I'm an asshole because I knowingly was out for blood, and so I don't blame anyone for wanting to do god knows what to me. The fact of the matter is I feel awful and guilty and this will stick with me forever, just like the Seinfeld guy using the N word… I can not express how sorry I am to Vinnie Paul and the Abbott family for the distress I caused, and the other members of Pantera and other acts Darrell was a part of. I owe everyone an apology for my actions because they were uncalled for, and horrible, despicable, and I went way too far. Some jokes are NOT funny and this is one of them. I took a joke way too far with a piece of paper and some hurtful words and as I've expressed, I don't expect any sort of acceptance or sympathy. I'm doing this out of the guilt I feel, knowing I caused this and I want to attempt to make it right even though I'm sure many will not accept this… I'm truly sorry for my actions and I'm sorry I put people I care about in potential danger and upsetting people for my selfish and morbid sense of humor. Anyways to wrap this up, I hope this was read, I hope at least someone will accept this and I hope for a better future for everyone…"
