Am I the only one that didn't see a moshpit?

The best moshpit ever was at the Theatre Fabrik in Munich, Germany during a NIN concert in '91.

I was motherfucking Gath of Baal.

Step up, pussy.

Best pit I was ever part of was when I saw Infectious Grooves and Suicidal Tendencies at a club in the Valley.

Also, there was no pit in that Rage video. All I saw was an unplanned switch to general admission seating.

Nope.

Maybe OP has not been to a general admission concert.

I've been in some phenomenal mosh pits. Some were huge at arena shows, others were small at club shows. Size isn't always the be all end all of mosh pit awesomeness.

And please, don't go posting about that awesome mosh-pit at 'insert semi-mainstream alt rock band' concert. No. Just no. A great mosh pit involves veteran moshers who know what they are doing, not just a bunch of random teens frustrated at Dad for not letting them borrow the keys to the Ford Taurus to drive to the Limp Bizkit show running into each other during the chorus for Break Stuff. No.

This. Some of the best pits I have ever been in were at a small ass bar with maybe 200 people packed in a room. Thought I was gonna die in a few of them
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 6:29:24 PM EST
Biggest mosh pit I ever saw was at an Anthrax-Pantera show, fall 1997, San Jose State University.

Link Posted: 1/16/2015 6:31:45 PM EST
Never got to see Pantera before Dimebag was killed

Few of my friends had gone to a couple and said they were bad ass pits.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 6:32:56 PM EST
One of my favorite mosh pits was Metallica at the Cow Palace, Black album era. Just a fantastic vibe, huge circle pit, everyone doin it right. Another one was Slayer at a big club somewhere up near Baltimore. Big place, and there was no safe spot anywhere during the final few songs. The entire place was a mad house mosh pit, front to back. Epic.

Most insane...Suffocation at a metal fest. I got hurt pretty bad at that one. Bodies flying everywhere, just raw carnage. Great vibe tho.

Lots of fantastic ones at smaller club deathmetal shows. Those are foetn the best, because everyone knows what they're doing.

The single best moshpit song tho, Toxic Waltz when Exodus played in Oakland CA. Ho-lee-shit. Back in 92 or 93. Nuts.

And of course nothing beats being on stage playing when a legit pit is going, and looking out over it. badass.

Link Posted: 1/16/2015 6:33:35 PM EST
Fight (1st album) is probably the roughest I ever saw.

Pantera (1993?) was right up there.

Exodus/white zombie was the biggest. The venue was huge and barn like, and the pit was just monsterous.

I got to see them at an outdoor show here in VA. It was OK. They put on a good show, but the pits were just meh. I went because they were playing with Sepultura, but Max broke his arm like a week before and they cancelled. leaving me to see Pantera by themselves. Ugh.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 6:36:51 PM EST
One of the roughest was Megadeth/Suicidal Tendencies in San Fran or San Jose (probably Cow Palace but I can't remember.)

Just because those two crowds did...not...mix. Half headbanger metalhead, half skate punk/mexican gang members. That pit was scary, and not in an awesome way. I had concerns about getting knifed at that show.

And Suicidal blows so hard live.

Nice to see another Bay Area ex-pat. Saw Metallica at the Cow Palace too, but in 1996, during their "Load" tour. Eh, still was a good show, crappy album notwithstanding.

Not really an ex-pat, was stationed there when I was going through DLI.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 7:39:16 PM EST
I've been in a lot of them, and seen plenty that I avoided.
I saw Pantera and White Zombie together, and that was a badass pit. I've been to a bunch of Pantera shows, and the pit was always impressive. I've been to a dozen Godsmack shows, same result.
Then, in 1999 , I went to Woodstock 99.
That was insane. Between the sheer enormity of the crowd, and the different bands, it was sick.
It started off kind of mellow, although there were plenty of pits. After two days of hundred degree weather, and anger over the fuckyness of the promoters, and the hardcore performers being scheduled for the end, it was seriously intense.
Because the crowd was so big, there wasn't "a " pit in front of the stage. There might have been twenty pits, spread out over a few acres, in front of two stages.
I guess it was Sunday that Limp Bizkit went on, and that was fucking great. Rage , Godsmack, Buckcherry, Korn, Sevendust. You had to be careful where you were, because moshpits started out of nowhere, at the drop of a hat, and even if you didn't want to be in one, all of a sudden, you were.
I had a great time there.

I think it was 92 or 93. I saw the same show at the Rocky Point Palladium. I didn't get a black eye, but I did intentionally hit another car with my own that night. My poor 81 Cutlass was never as pretty after that.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 8:40:33 PM EST
If you never saw Pantera play in the mid-late 90's. You have never seen a mosh pit.

It was a pile of pure fear. I didn't set foot near it.
It was nearly the entire front of the pavilion at Blossom in about 96 or 97.
The rail that seperated the pavilion from the lawn broke down and the pit pushed into the pavilion.

It was one of the crazies moments I've ever seen.

I also saw RATM play at Blossom in 97, with Wutang. Wu showed up an hour late and missing about 30 chambers.
The show was amazing, nearly one of the best I've ever seen. But there was no pit that struck fear in my soul at that show.


Pantera.

If Pantera mosh pits struck fear in your soul, for the love of god man, don't ever go to a real metal show unless you bring a few changes of Depends.

Pantera 1995 Akron Ohio, good even great.

Slayer divine intervention tour was , well , a better.

The accused, SGM, and Wehrmacht at the pine street theater in Portland, Oregon. About 1988. I was 13.

First time in my life I was ever truly scared. Several people were stabbed, show just kept going.

Also the first time I had to wade through vomit to get to the pisser.



Anthrax and Iron Maiden in a national Guard armory was probably the most fun. When "caught in the mosh" came on it was fucking pandemonium.




That shit OP posted looked like a one direction concert, that is NOT a mosh pit.

Agnostic Front and Sick of it All.

Maybe about 1991 to 93. Can't recall exactly. Saratoga Winners in New York.

Best mosh pits were the ones in the small local dives. Billyclub Sandwich, Irate, Sworn Enemy, 36 Deadly Fists, Full Blown Chaos, Shattered Realm.

Hatebreed was good for some fun back in the day, too.

Broke my foot in a circle pit in Dallas during Haste the Day's farewell tour. Kids these days just want to slam dance and not be touched. Was at a Norma Jean show and some little scene kid (who was at least 30) kept dancing around and if he touched you he'd glare and yell at you not to touch him....fuckin' A dude there are 300 people in a room the size of my living room, we're going to be touching

Iguana's in Tijuana had some out of control pits. Supposedly someone died jumping off the 3rd story balcony at a Ramones show.

I will echo earlier post on Sick of it All. NYHC shows were always brought out the characters.

Never got to see in person, but videos of the old shows at the Olympic in LA looked pretty nuts.

I have to say the two best I've been in where The Dead Milkmen in Atlanta in 93 or 94 and Jesus Lizard in 94 in Memphis. Jesus Lizard was brutal, Dead Milkmen was full of skinheads.

Here, I'll give you the full experience. Suicidal plays a song. Lights come down, Mike takes a knee and rambles for a good 5 minutes about politics or whatever, because he is super smart. Lights come back up and Suicidal plays another song. Lights come down, Mike takes a knee and rambles for a good 5 minutes about politics or whatever, because he is super smart.

Keep repeating for the length of the show. I seriously wanted to stab myself in the ears, I got so sick of him rambling on and on and on.

Honerable mentions to Evergreen Terrace where some f***** named Mexico broke my nose with a single punch

hatebreed was one probably the craziest pit ive seen. lots of people listen to hatebreed including lots of rednecks and lots of goth kids. that does not mix well with people that listen to heavier metal and hardcore.

also a small band Ceremony playing in a very small cafe. probably 60 people allowed in the entire place. it was like a legit riot bar stools through the air, all the hanging lights were ripped off. front windows were broken out. very crazy pit or be pitted scenario.

also an even smaller band pistol bitch playing. real riot broke out after that ending with gunfire.
