The 26-year-old heavy metal fan who passed away during this past weekend's Pressure Festival in Germany died from complications brought about by a pre-existing heart condition and not as a result of injuries sustained while taking part in an aggressive form of slam-dancing, police in Bochum, Germany announced on Tuesday (June 28). The cause of Marco Grewen's death was found to be unrelated to the extreme type of "moshing" called "wall of death," a form of concert dancing where the crowd is split down the middle and on the signal, both sides ram into each other.
The German media had previously reported that approximately 2,000 people took part in the "wall of death" during HATEBREED's performance at the festival. A total of 25 people were reportedly taken to local hospitals to be treated for various injuries — including fractures — sustained during the three-day event.
The "wall of death" was famously popularized by LAMB OF GOD during their Ozzfest 2004 stint where it became a regular part of the group's live performance. [Download a Quicktime video file of the Wall of Death recorded during last year's Ozzfest.]
A 26-year-old German heavy metal fan died over the weekend from injuries sustained at the Pressure Festival in in Herne (near Dortmund/Bochum), Germany.
The accident occured Saturday when 26-year-old — whose named hasn't been released by the German media — took part in the "wall of death," a form of concert dancing where the crowd is split down the middle and on the signal, both sides ram into each other.
The impact on the fan's liver was reportedly so significant that he died the same night at a nearby hospital.
The German media, especially regional TV, are already talking about "casualties at a heavy metal concert", and calling the wall of death an "aggressive" form of dance.

CONVERGE, SATYRICON and... DARKTHRONE...? Those are the unlikely alternate Grammy nominees suggested to MSNBC recently by "Sound of the Beast" author Ian Christe. "Then again," Christe told the Microsoft-backed news network, "DARKTHRONE already refused their nomination for the Norwegian version of the awards. These back-slapping events are viewed by most metalheads with a lot of skepticism."
Christe also told MSNBC this year's real Grammy nominees for Metal Performance (CRADLE OF FILTH, MOTÖRHEAD, HATEBREED, KILSWITCH ENGAGE, and SLIPKNOT) are "a shock... they actually represent what metal kids are into - instead of the usual out-of-date record company executive's misunderstanding of heavy metal... All five bands nominated began on indie-specialty labels, then worked their way to the mainstream over years. Normally, I'd hope in vain that MOTÖRHEAD would win, just as an excuse to see Lemmy wearing a tuxedo. But it would really be a boon to heavy metal for any of the younger bands to take the prize."
The Grammys will be handed out Feb. 13. The Metal Performance award will NOT be televised.
Throwdown have now begun recording their upcoming new album "Vendetta" with producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed) at the helm. The effort is expected out in July via Trustkill.
ICEPICK, HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta's much-anticipated collaboration with SKARHEAD singer Lord Ezec, will make their live debut on February 27 at CBGBs in New York City. Fans who attend the gig should expect to hear four or five original songs as well as several HATEBREED and SKARHEAD covers.
The concert, a benefit for Pete Koller from SICK OF IT ALL, will also feature H20, MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD, KILL YOUR IDOLS, ENSIGN, INHUMAN and THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (featuring ex-CRO-MAGS frontman John Joseph and SICK OF IT ALL bassist Craig Setari).
ICEPICK's track "Born to Crush You" was featured on the "UFC Ultimate Beatdowns Vol. 1 Metal" compilation, released last August through Nitrus Records.

I had the opportunity to attend the Stillborn Fest 2005 in Philadelphia, Pa at the Electric Factory on December 26th. I must say for being as pissed off as I was that I couldn't move anywhere without a pit of hardcore dancers starting right next to me, that it was still a good concert. All of the few bands I had the chance to see were really good live and they were enjoyable. This is how the night shaped up: More...
