Pit Stories: The Two Towers Invade Skull Fist's Stage

Each week we check in with metal bands from nations around the globe to find their favorite mosh pit memories. For this week's Pit Story, Canadian outfit Skull Fist shares the following tale of the "two towers," a fan duo who forced the crowd into on-stage interaction:

Everytime we played in Holland over the last 2 years I always noticed the same two guys in this one city. They were huge huge tall bro's that always used to come out and get totally shitfaced at the shows. I had a few beers with them on multiple occasions but one time we were playing this gig in the Netherlands with Chainsaw and the two huge dudes were there. We started actually calling them the "twin towers" since they were always together and big guys!

I called to them while I was on stage and said "yooooo twin towers!!!!" When I did this they took it as an opportunity haha. They literally just started grabbing people from the crowd and throwing them up on stage. When the people tried to climb off the stage they forced them to stay up there. Within about 3 minutes we had the whole entire crowd up on stage with us rocking and singing along to "Angel Witch" which we used to cover alot.

One of them actually picked me up in the air and started stomping around on stage with me. It was amazing how easy he lifted me as well since I'm not a big guy or anything but I'm definitely not a small guy, hahaha. When I looked over to the right I seen Jonny up on the shoulders of another dude and about 20 people left in the crowd watching this go down. Everyone on stage just stomped around and we had like 20 guys on each mic singing along to the song. We actually just played the last chorus for I swear about 3 extra minutes over and over and over.

I spent some time with this hefty fellow carrying me around with a big grin on his face as well as mine. I was totally certain he was going to fall over since we were both hammered but every time someone came near him he just shoved them off with practically no effort hahaa. After the gig we just got hammered. Laughed about it and hung out all night. I haven't seen the twin towers since. I'm sure they will turn up sometime and probably do it all over again! Those guys ruled!
