Tales From The Pit: Unholy Rocks A Boxing Ring

We've been talking to bands to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week's story comes from Unholy's Billy Price.

"We played this show in NYC and midway through one of our songs this fight breaks out in the pit and these two guys start slugging it out. Theyknocked over at least 5 people rolling around going at it, get back up and start trading blows, the crowd starts to form around them creating a boxing ring type of effect. No one bothers to step in or break it up and we keep playing while these guys try to take each others heads off. Finally one of the brawlers decided he had enough and disappeared into the crowd, the winner then proceeded to finish moshing to the rest of the song! It was probably the closest we will ever get to playing a live boxing match."

Next week we'll hear about Joe Vera's exploits at a 1986 Metallica show.

I seen unholy last march open up for all that remains at the lost horizon in Syracuse ny. To be honest I thought they rocked, but the sad thing was that only like 5 people in the entire venue knew who the hell they were or their songs. Hopefully that will all change soon.
