hello pit,
ive just woke up at 5pm with an amazing hangover, amazingly injured from mosh pits last night, so what injuries have the pit contracted in real life pits?

today i have a broken finger several bruises a pulled muscle in my shoulder, back and neck problems, and ive got such a bad fat lip that ive got a bruise inside my lip. ive got a cut lip in a different place aswell, last night i got into the most brutal mosh pit ive ever seen. there was blood everywhere. people lost teeth, broke noses, 2 broken arms, lots of fingers and wrists, and 1 person snapped there ankle. the gig got shut down halfway through because we had to call 4 ambulances after the wall of death.


anyone got anything intresting happened or done by them in the pit?

I usually get extreme headaches while reading total nonsense in The Pit.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

I was moshing in a smallish (but relatively nice) local club, to some of the acts at a local Battle of the Bands competition which happens every two years. The bouncers wouldn't let it get too out of hand but it was pretty powerful if you're 1.6 metres tall, when the majority of the crowd is much bigger and taller.

I was moshing around when suddenly I nailed my back of someone/something. I don't know how it happened. I just remember thinking that I'd seriously injured myself. So I staggered away wobbly legged with a throbbing back (I was pissed because I thought I might have to go home ). I went and got a drink thinking it would help. A girl from my school (who was at the bar rather than at the stage) asked me what I was doing. I replied that I was getting a drink because I'd destroyed my back. "Cool, drinks solve anything" she said. It didn't really but I sat out for a bit and it cleared after a while. I then found my friends and (cautiously) joined back in

The concerts (there's 2 heats and a final, over 3 weeks) were pretty great though
Above post may or may not be true.

Last year I went down to New York to catch Hallowmas. I got kicked in the head and neck twice, a bunch of people fell during first song (myself included; someone dragged me down) and my legs got slightly crushed, someone nearly ripped my earrings out (which had been pierced less than a month before). Someone else jumped from the balcony over the pit and a few kids had to go to the hospital.

I much, much prefer the pits where kids are just venting, not trying to kill each other. Actually getting hurt really isn't the point of pits...

Sounds like you guys were being immature dicks at the show.. Usually very few people get hurt in mosh pits.. It's a known rule, if someone falls down you pick them up.
#13
I havent been in a mosh pit, but i was kind of on the barrier of it if you get what i mean. I didn't really get hurt but this guy was kind of launched out of the mosh pit and into this really big guy in front of me. He fell right into me and i fell into someone else........like dominoes.
But I don't really see the point of mosh pits anymore. Mostly it's just full of idiots out to ruin everyone day
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

Although I do enjoy metal shows and enjoy mosh pits...

What TS just described sounds like absolutely no fun. Even though pits are mostly violent people should be taking care of eachother, not trying to kill eachother.

Every pit I've been in, if someone gets knocked down they're immediately picked back up, no fists are thrown, and drop kicks are landed. Just good ol' fashion thrashing to some metal.

TS, what possible reason would make you want to stay in a pit like that? That doesn't sound fun at all.

Well, last tuesday we were playing dodgeball before the actual PE class started, and I was doing ok. Then a big wrestler guy beamed two balls, one right after the other at me.

Being the badass I am, I decided to dodge both balls without moving my feet. So I leaned to the right. Way right. Until I bent my ankle at a near 90 degree angle. For some reason, my foot didn't move. I fell down and threw the ball and got the guy out, but before I could even try to get up, our PE teacher was like "I can't believe you seriously just did that. Somebody go get an icepack."

Eventually I went to the doctor and found out I have one hell of a ankle sprain, and they couldn't tell if I had broken anything because my foot was to swelled up.

TS that sounds like the worst pit ever lol I've been to a ton of shows and I've never seen anything like that with so many people gettin f'ed up bad hahaha

I only ever got forreal hurt in a pit twice...The first was on my 18th birthday at a show my friends band was playing at...there was 15 bands and the 3rd one in some asshole just came up and punched me in the face for no reason then tried to kick me in the head...My nose was broken and there was the most blood I have ever seen in my life. Like it really looked like someone dumped a gallon of red paint on me. but I cleaned myself up and stayed for the rest of the show

the second time was right before my 19th birthday and I had a bad feeling about the pit but went in anyway and within 2 min of being in there I got hit by something and knocked out colddddddd. Like I dont remember anything but standing there and a split second later I was 20 feet away and I didnt know where I was. I didn't feel gettin hit or anything it was weird. I stayed for the rest of the show but when I got home I saw my nose was mad crooked and my lip was sliced bad and swollen up so bad you couldnt see me teeth and the inside was just black and green.

So I went to the hospital ad I had a mild concussion and a badly broken nose....a week later I had to get legit surgery so they could fix it...they had to put me to sleep and everything.

well funnily enough this was just a ****ty local band night, but between alot of agressive angsty teens and a few 30 year olds 6 foot fat twats with beards, we were vicious. that was the fun of it, it was more like fight club than band night lol it was amazing fun, we just got all our agression out, standing there in a ring. panting waiting for teh drop of some awesome metal, and then literally beating the living **** out of each other. we dont play by the rules, and we definetly dont pick people up, there were piles of poeple on the floor, especially in the wall of death, we just trampled over them and added to there numbers lol
