this is a metal concert (born of osiris, after the burial, etc)
Is it normal or part of the music enviornment to be so aggressive with other people while moshing? I know the pushing is ok and accidental punches can be forgiven but is it normal to be grabbed and thrown down while moshing?

It was my first metal show and i was moshing pretty good. i was punching towards the floor and on my way back im doing it and some big frat boy, who was also moshing, bumps or walks up to me, grabs me and throws me to the ground in front of the whole crowd and everyone's saying oh. I just got up and moshed my way back into the crowd.

wtf was that about.
im guessing if you take a look at my pic it will explain but I dont want to pull any cards/tricks even though my friend suggested that was the reason.

Their are those kind of people at every show you will ever go to. You might as well get used to it.
The best thing about life is knowing you put it together

Yeah, you handled that perfectly. Don't try to start a fight in a mosh, people who do that sh!t are annoying.

That guy is an idiot. Recently at a local battle of the bands, this guy was punching everyone for no reason and he got thrown out, and just before he left, my friend punched him back in the face - it was cool.

No,
People are supposed to pick you up if you're on the ground, not push you down.


Being nice and helping people off the ground is part of Mosh Etiquette.

Props to you for not starting anything up and being mega-brootal-tough-guy.

so you're saying that i'm not an uber 733t kvlt br00tle shred head? i always thought that picking on kids that are smaller than you made you metal.
#9
When you say metal do you mean real metal or metalcore/hardcore stuff.

If its the latter then expect people to be dicks.

That's not normal, that's just some guy being a dick. You're correct, pushing and stuff is expected, but.. Yeah, someone was just being a douchebag. Props to you for not starting anything up and being mega-brootal-tough-guy.

No, he should have punched the guy in the back of the head.

But I'm surprised the people around you didn't do anything, usually the majority of the population in a mosh pit is very kind/helpful.
Everyone in the pit just wants to shove eachother, but no one wants to get hurt, so I'm surprised that no one helped you out.

No, that means you personally embody a falice.

Which is my fancy way of saying you're a dick

Use that on stupid people, it's hilarious

I always got annoyed if there was any moshing when I was playing. I insisted on ball room dancing or nothing.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
#23
Is it normal that people are assholes? Absolutely. Most bands that aren't assholes themselves will stop the show if they someone that needs help.
#24
Yeah that guy sounds like a douche.

There was some guy at the Slipknot/Machine Head gig a month or two back who was just standing there with his arms crossed over his chest; sort of like how they do it in Dragon Ball Z to stop one of those energy ball attack things. Whenever some one came near him he just pushed them away, straight away. His face was so funny because it was crinkled as if he was concentrating really, really hard.

That's lame bro, and definitely not considered acceptable, but there are always some douche bags who try to ruin everyone's fun. That's just how it is, sadly.

Metal?



yeah after looking those bands up I thought the same thing.


Actually, more intense violence is generally considered acceptable at hardcore shows. This is because the hardcore scene is filled with idiotic meatheads.

That's when you punch the guy in the face in the middle of "hardcore dancing". Blame it on that anyway.

Moshing is very gay. The only reason I've ever moshed is to physically hurt the people that I showed up with.

but the metal guys will still think it's stupid and push him down. It wasn't like a bullet for my valentine show, with bands like after the burial there will be some "true" kids there.

yeah don't do that, if you seriously thought it was because you're black you're just as much as a douche-bag as the jock..

..jocks will be jocks, just ignore it if it ever happens again.

WTF? Are you guys for-serious? Dude, I thought that Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, and Misfits were just being nice when they said Alaska had the most hardcore mosh pits, but we are super brutal in our moshes, like, punching, kicking, Deathfist, fistykins, shove downs,Deathwalls, Bravehearts, and Chili Bowls. I just always thought that was what moshing was... Honestly, I'm a little dissappointed it's not that way everywere.
