Are you a Pantera fan? Have you ever been struck by a sudden, overwhelming desire to send your ex a cartoon image of Phil Anselmo's stomach tattoo? You're in luck: the groove metal titans now have their very own emojis. Goofy glyphs of Dimebag, Anselmo, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown comprise the bulk of the set, with over a dozen expressions each. Pantera's rattlesnake mascot is well-represented too, as well as the band members' love of booze, KISS and big-ass amps. Check them out below.
Pantera's emojis are available now for iOS via Emoji Fame. Unfortunately, Android users will have to wait until September before they can text their friends an illustration of the late Dimebag Darrell toasting with his favorite drink, the Black Tooth Grin.
Pantera aren't the first band to get the emoji treatment. Developer Emoji Fame previously released sticker sets inspired by Zakk Wylde, GG Allin and Nothing. Metallica have gotten into the action as well, albeit to a lesser extent. Last fall, Twitter celebrated the legends' long-awaited album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct with a slanted 'M' emoji that accompanied certain hashtags.
In other Pantera-related news, Brown is gearing up to make his solo debut with the release of Smoke On This, due out on July 28 via Entertainment One. Over the past couple months, he's been rolling out singles from the record, including "Train Song" and "Crossing Lines."
