Pit Stories: Gothic Throw Down After A Punch Goes Wide

Today we've got a midweek Pit Story for you all about the mosh!

After eight year olds being carted on stage at a festival and a very out of place band at a black metal ritual, this week we're headed back where we belong: throwing down in the pit!

Vocalist Raf Salazar from Century Media rock band Loaded Guns recalls this story about learning your place in the pit:

I remember being at a Marilyn Manson concert in the pit & going absolutely nuts (how you're supposed to) but this one tough looking dude wearing a pentagram on his a back is looking very annoyed & trying to protect his girlfriend from us maniacs.

Anyway the pit is super crowded (It's Marilyn fucking Manson) & you can tell he is getting increasingly annoyed with the pushing / moving crowd. Anyway, I accidentally fall on him & he picks me up & tries to punch me, I duck & instead he punches another really big gothic guy & they go at it. Anyway pentagram dude gets beat up & when security came they escorted only him out. Was definitely a fun time & hopefully he learned a lesson.

Loaded Guns just released debut EP "Unstoppable" this past Friday, August 25th through Century Media Record. Check out a music video for "Bring Us Down," produced and directed by Matt Akana, in the player below.
