Pit Stories: The Marine Pit

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week, Mark Chapman, lead singer/lead guitarist for the So Cal thrash metal band Attackhead, shares a story of playing for the U.S. Marines:

A few months ago we were performing at a So Cal Marine base and it was very clear that the Marines were heavy metal deprived. While we were setting up, the Marines were drinking and playing pool. As soon as we started our set, a massive pit formed. Let me tell you, when you combine metal, booze and aggressive Marines, the pit is insane. The problem is, the pit was on a tile floor which quickly became slippery with spilled beer. About half way through our set a Marine came flying out of the pit and hit my mic stand while I was singing. The mic hit me in the mouth and I got an instant fat lip. The mic and stand then fell over and stopped working. I had to move over to a back-up mic to finish the song until the mic was replaced.

The Marine was helped up by his brothers and rejoined the pit like nothing had happened. We thoroughly enjoy all of our performances, but the ones for the military are always wild and crazy.
