Damageplan was an American heavy metal band from Dallas, Texas formed in 2003. Following the demise of heavy metal band Pantera, brothers Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul wanted to start a new band. The pair recruited former Halford guitarist Pat Lachman on vocals, and Bob Zilla on bass. The band released its debut album New Found Power in the United States on February 10, 2004, which debuted at number 38 on the Billboard 200, selling 44,676 copies in its first week.
While promoting the album at a concert on December 8, 2004, a former U.S. marine named Nathan Gale climbed on stage and murdered Darrell and three members of the band's crew. Although no motive was found, some witnesses claimed Gale blamed the brothers for Pantera's breakup and that they stole his lyrics. Gale was killed by police officer James Niggemeyer, who was found to act accordingly by the Franklin County prosecutor's office.
