The Hot Topic stage at Mayhem this year is The Black Dahlia Murder, Behemoth, Whitechapel and Cannibal Corpse. Hell yes. So, I plan on being there, but I'm leary about pit tickets; I'm not a big guy. I'm about 5'8 and around 120 lbs, really freaking thin. I don't have much concert experience, will I die at this show? How can I avoid dying? Is the front row really that dangerous? Will I be alright around the edges of the pit? Are you expected to sing along since the vocals are screamed/roared?

Yes you will die due to incessant moshing. I am sorry.
Yes, you may be safe around the edges I assume.

I'm 5'7'' and 130lbs and if I can survive being in or near a mosh pit then I'm pretty sure you can be. Don't worry about it, just have fun!

I just remembered I saw Black Dahlia Murder before haha and I survived. I was in the middle pretty much the whole time. In my opinion, they're music is great, but I don't really think they're that great live. Sorry for going off topic a bit.

In a real death metal pit you will see lots of circle pitting and shoving as well as charging. If anyone falls they will be picked up by surrounding people.

In a deathcore faggotry pit you will see lots of hardcore dancing (aka, the gayest shit you will ever witness short of getting assrammed) and can very easilly get punched or spinkicked in the face. I've seen someone go down and out in an ambulance because of that shit.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.
Also,

Edges are always safe.
Front can be suffocating.

Just stay away from the hardcore dancers.
Im going moshing for my first time this Sunday, but Im sure im not half as worried as you are or should be, considering I am bigger.

They do that at local shows. i don't even like moshing, I just usually walk through the pit. Our venues are small, and to get anywhere you have to. I swear to god I saw a kid Falcon Punch another kid by "mistake" in a pit. I wanted to run over and yell "FALCON PUNCH KILLS MOSHERS!!!"

It's not like the entire general admission (pit) area is one giant mosh pit (cept for maybe the last song of the night), just stay away from them if you're gonna die.... oh and if you hear the words 'wall of death', GET THE **** OUT OF THERE!!!
#28
I went to Mayhem fest 2 weeks ago. Slayer had the BEST pits, by far. Then Marylin Manson came on and ruined the night

The pit is a safe place, go have fun!
Other planes lie beyond the reach
Of normal sense and common roads
But they are no less real
Than what we see or touch or feel

When I saw cannibal corpse the fans were huge. I don't know why but everyone is pretty big. The pit gets intense during them too. People aren't going to be dicks, but I did see a lot of people walking out with bloodied noses and one guy had to be helped out by security because he was knocked out.

Die valiantly at least.

Now, about that organized Pit field trip.......
