Dark Funeral’s Stage Armor Stolen
Sadly, we’re quite used to hearing about bands getting robbed. Mostly recently, some assholes stole a guitar from Lamb of God’s Willie Adler… but we hear about this kind of thing all the time.
What we don’t hear about all the time is a band’s stage outfits being stolen. And yet, this is what has happened to Dark Funeral, who reports that some dick or dicks broke a car in San Francisco and made off with the armor they wear for live shows:
“There are few things worse than thieves! We just discovered that 2 if our bags containing our stage outfits were stolen from a car in San Francisco. Window smashed and bags gone. As you know these things are of little use or value for anyone but for us they are unvaluable! If you see or hear anything, please let us know!
“We always travel with 3 Samsonite suitcases including our stagewear. Only two of them were stolen when we had a brrakin to our car in San Fransisco (Lombard/Fransisco area). It shows that the suitcase we still have in our belongings includes all Lord Ahriman & Chaq Mol’s gear except for their leather pants & boots (which are easy to replace). That means we still missing the stagewear for Heljagmadr, Adra Melek & Jalomaah! if you hear or see anything please let us know.”
Not being a criminal, I don’t know if the unusual nature of the items will make it easier or harder to fence. But if you live in the SF area, be on the lookout for someone selling a bunch of armor.
