Pit Stories: Geriatric Mosher

Tuesday might be that day when Friday seems like an eternity away, but its also the day we share more epic heavy metal Pit Stories!

This week's tale from the pit comes courtesy of vocalist Manuel Castillo from Santiago, Chile-based metal band Half Blood.

Manuel shares the following tale of an unlikely mosher at a Cannibal Corpse show:

I remember my first Pit Story because it was one of the greatest in my entire life, and also so strange. I was a 14 year old metal head that had never been to a metal concert other than small local gigs when got the news that Cannibal Corpse was playing a show, I was so fucking happy! I asked my parents for tickets to the show for my birthday. In those days going to a concert was great cause it was a good deal, and I think the ticket cost less than 20 dollars and came with a t-shirt.

The day finally came and I went alone because the parents of my metal head friend didn't let him go. I headed to the arena called Teatro Caupolican, and when I got there everyone was taller and older than me! I entered the arena and the smell of weed was strong. That was the first time I got high just because almost the entire crowd was smoking. There was a support band called Dorso, didn't like them very much but who cares, I was there for Cannibal Corpse.

The concert was starting, it was mind blowing, everything, the lights, the heaviness that only a live band can bring, specially CC! So I was there headbanging like a maniac and then I saw the strangest thing I've ever seen at a concert. There he was, an old man, dressed like my grandfather, with a newspaper under his arm, a nice shirt and nice shoes headbanging to the rhythm of one of the heaviest death metal bands ever! No one was saying anything to him. After that, on "Hammer Smashed Face" I entered the pit for the first time in my life, at a CC concert, what a great night.

Half Blood Posts "Self Exile"

Santiago, Chile metal band Half Blood just released an official video for "Self Exile," the second single taken off the band's debut album due out later this year. Half Blood comments:

"We were really tired about the empty lyrics of pop music, even on the metal scene in some cases, there's so much happening around the world right now and it seems that it didn't care, true pain, true horror, but all that matters now are how big is your ass or how much money do you have playing like a fake gangsta, so fuck it, we choose Self Exile."
