Metal Pioneers Pantera Release a Set of Glass-Shattering Emojis in Partnership with Emoji Fame
The Influential ’90s Metal Group Drops a New Set of Shareable Emojis and iMessage Stickers, Packed With Memorable Images From the Band’s Decade-Long Career
Known for pioneering a new wave of American heavy metal, mind-boggling riffs from guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, and their debaucherous activities, Pantera is considered by many to be the heavy band of the 1990’s. Breaking through your screen with a vulgar display of power, Pantera partners with Emoji Fame to create its own line of custom emojis for the iPhone.
Featuring expressive facial renderings of guitarist Dimebag Darrell, vocalist Philip Anselmo, bassist Rex Brown, and drummer Vinnie Paul, with glass and text message-crushing animated fists, all of the fixings for the band’s signature drink, the Black Tooth Grin, and iconic musical equipment such as Dime’s guitars, the emojis will summon the cowboys from hell straight to your phone.
In homage to the band’s bombastic iconography, the set features an emoji skull retrofitted with a drill bit, a properly brutal punched face, photobomb-ready emojis like Dimebag’s signature goatee and Anselmo’s “unscarred” tattoo, and The Great Southern Trendkill’s menacing rattlesnake, acting as the vessel for classic Pantera lyrics and phrases.
“The Pantera emoji set is equal parts aggression and humor, which perfectly mirrors the band’s duality.,” said Gavin Rhodes, co-founder of Emoji Fame.
The leader in custom emojis, featured in Complex, Billboard, NPR, Pitchfork, Noisey, Guitar Player, The Albuquerque Journal, The Houston Chronicle, SF Weekly, and Bill Simmons’ The Ringer, Emoji Fame partners with your favorite musicians, celebrities and brands to create unique emojis, with recent sets created for Cypress Hill, Devo, GG Allin, Dinosaur Jr., and Big Freedia.
