The Femme Metal Fest 2009, the first of what is set to be an annual event, was a huge success, with a great turnout and amazing performances. Before the Femme Metal Festival had even started, anticipation was running high outside the Asylum in Birmingham, where I took the opportunity to ask my fellow festival-ers who they were looking forward to watching. Unsurprisingly, symphonic metal band Delain came out on top, with everyone I asked excited at the prospect of witnessing their first ever UK gig. More...

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Jason from Winter Storm shows those indie kids how it's done:
"Me and my friends went to a Metal/Indie night for new year's eve, turned out to be 90% indie, we moshed the whole night through and totally owned that night club!!! I think we easily made up for the lack of metal heads HAHA!!"
Winter Storm is playing the Femme Metal Fest on November 7th and is currently recording their first album "Serenity In Darkness," due out February 2010.
Check back every Tuesday for more tales from the pit.
