Pantera, an American heavy metal band from Arlington, Texas, was formed in 1981 by the Abbott brothers – drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell along with vocalist Phil Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown. After disbanding in 2003 the Abbott brothers went on to form Damageplan, while Anselmo began work on several side projects, including Down in which Rex Brown joined as well. On December 8, 2004, Dimebag Darrell was shot and killed on stage by a deranged fan during a Damageplan concert in Columbus, Ohio, permanently ending hopes for a reunion.
