Metal Bands Thank Our Veterans

Today in the U.S. we celebrate Memorial Day, which honors the men and women in our armed services and those who have given their lives to protect us. Metal bands across the U.S. have been commenting on the holiday, and here you can see a variety of statements posted online from different groups.

Unkempt

To all our veterans, young and old, and to all actively deployed U.S. troops, thank you so much for the sacrifices made on our behalf both for this generation, those before us, and the ones yet to come. Enjoy your freedoms today and time with friends and family, for that freedom came at an unimaginable cost. So, once again, thank you Vets!!! We honor you all today and give you our support and appreciation.

DaiTribe

We appreciated and respect EVERY Veteran every where, go thank a Veteran today.

Dischordia

We at Castle Dischordia would like to thank the brave men and women (and their families) who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Thank you.

Scythe Of Dante

For all the soldiers that fought and died for both you and I, We salute you.

Alekhine's Gun

Take time today to remember those who sacrifice for country and cause. Remember those who do the hard work of the armed forces when they're tired, when their family lives are taxed, and when things look darkest. Thank you all.

Pit Stories: Headbutting The Giant

Every Tuesday we share metal show mosh pit stories from bands and fans coming from every genre and corner of the globe. This week we have the following story from Illinois based act DaiTribe about a giant in the pit getting a taste of his own medicine:

Pits and stage diving has changed a lot in the last 20 yrs. First pit I saw was during my time in TX. Brutal and intense circles with a lot of surfing. Back then, you'd see them ignite like they'd been waiting all their lives to unleash and explode. I'd look out from the stage and see hundreds of kids having a great night. If someone got knocked down, someone would get picked up. The mosh pits would police themselves and everyone looked out for each other in the truest sense of brotherhood.

Fast forward to today where the spirit is there, it just seems like the outcome is very different. You see these giant guys in the center knocking down people half their size. The Brazilian style pits where the circle kicks rule and seems like most people aren't paying attention. Now, I took my hits back in the day, it was gonna happen. You might catch an elbow or a fist here and there but it wasn't intentional.

So, the funniest thing I ever saw was at a show and this girl had to be about five feet and it's the middle of the set. She's thrashing and holding her own and some giant guy who's at least a foot taller, goes against the pit and she lowers her head and nails him in the gut! At first I thought she'd knocked herself out cause she flew back about 4-5 feet before the pit caught her and put her upright again. I'd been watching this guy for a couple of songs and it was clear that he was way too out of it and just trying to hurt anyone he could. Coolest thing I saw all night cause she pretty much leveled him!

DaiTribe is out now with the new album "Epochalypse A.D." and recently released a new music video for the song "I Hate Me". You can also check out a track-by-track video for "Epochalypse A.D." at this location.

Check back in again next week for another dose of pit stories from fans and metal musicians.
