In the world of crowd surfing like legends, moshing in totally unexpected places, attacks from large chested woman...we have practically seen it all in our expanding collection of Pit Stories.

Today, Mark Briody - guitarist of Jag Panzer - recalls a mosh pit of two, where he and his bassist were having the time of their lives in the pit, unaware as to what was happening...

Here, Mark explains:

Many many years ago my bass player and I were at a punk gig. There was a massive pit going on. We were right in the middle, tossing elbows and going crazy. Soon we found ourselves are the only ones out there. We thought everyone else had enough so we high-fived each other. We soon found out the last song was a dedication to a deceased person, which no one moshed to. We were clueless.

For those who have had an equally odd pit story -- be sure to let us know your story in the comments!

Jag Panzer just released the comeback album "The Deviant Chord" via Steamhammer/SPV Records on September 29, 2017 and the band is currently planning for a support tour.
