Pit Stories: The One Dude Who Owns The Pit

The time has come for another Pit Story straight from the heart of the metal scene! This week's story comes courtesy of Entheos (the new band featuring Evan Brewer and Navene Koperweis).

Drummer Navene Koperweis had this tale from the pit to share about that one guy who keeps the mosh going, no matter what the circumstances:

When My old band was on tour with Napalm Death, there was an epic beat in Denver, Colorado. There was this one dude owning the pit who very primal and animated. We decided to go up on the balcony to see what would happen if we poured a bottle of water on him. Turns out he loved it! He thrived off it and continued to be the number 1 pitter! Props to this guy!

Are you that guy at your local shows? Share your story of the one mosher who just won't stop in the comments below!

The new Entheos album "The Infinite Nothing" is slated to drop April 1st, 2016 via Artery Recordings, with several advance tracks already up for streaming. You can pre-order the release over here.

I was moshing hard at a Cannibal Corpse concert at Slim's in San Francisco... I rolled out and sunk into the outer pit to rest and recharge for another round being the rhino in the pit... The dude behind me sees my mouthguard and shouts over the music "GOOD CALL" I look at his face and see he has in a mouthguard in as well... So I shout out "GOOD CALL TO YOU TOO"... He responds by saying: "NO MAN, TOO LATE" ...while removing his upper mouthguard, then takes out a retainer that holds his upper six front teeth!!! We both agreed that you absolutely have to keep your hands up in the pit, protecting yourself at all times.
Savage Pitters Mosh On!!!!
