A Vulgar Display of Power: Courage and Carnage at the Alrosa Villa is a book written by rock writer and photographer Chris Armold and released by MJS Music Publications in 2007.
It tells the story of events leading to the shocking onstage murders of former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott, fan Nathan Bray, Alrosa Villa employee Erin Halk, and security guard Jeffery Thompson, who were all fatally shot by Nathan Gale, while Abbott was performing with his new band Damageplan on December 8, 2004 at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus, Ohio.
James Niggemeyer, the police officer who killed Darrell's assailant, wrote the foreword.
