Pit Stories: A Fallout Shelter With No Cocaine

Metalunderground.com has been hitting up bands and fans everywhere to get their most memorable mosh pit stories. This week Tom Brumpton of Akarusa Yami shares a story of his former band Kallous playing a terrifying show in a fallout shelter in the Czech Republic.

In 2007 my old band Kallous was playing a Festival in the Czech Republic and it was absolutely terrifying. While we were over there we got invited to play a smaller venue called The Bunker, which was an old fallout shelter from the war. It was 30 feet underground and smelt terrible. There were 7 bands, a Neo-Nazi dancing throughout by himself, the stage was at the bottom of a ramp, and there was no crowd to be seen as the “Bunker” was in the middle of butt-fuck nowhere.

About two songs into the set, water began tricking down the ramp onto the stage. By the end of the set, the stage and electrics were covered in water and we all thought we were going to die. I ran out of the venue screaming. The last band was later not allowed to play as the sound man had ran out of cocaine. He then shuffled off into the night, leaving 30 people and about £20,000 worth of musical equipment in the middle of Prague, in the middle of the night, without a lift home. Scary.

Head over to Akarusa Yami's official Facebook page here to check out what the band has to offer, and be sure to check back in next Tuesday as we share more Pit Stories taken from fans and bands around the world.
