We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week’s story is from Alan Averill Nemtheanga, frontman of Primordial:

"During the last show of the Paganfest Tour in LA in the pit some fucker was giving me the finger for the whole first half of the show, why you would go pay into a band to do that is beyond me. He was wearing a Dimmu shirt if I remember correctly so no doubt that says something about his taste in music. Maybe I fucked his girlfriend, sister or mother or something when she was on holidays in Ireland who knows? So I called him out on it and told him it was no problem to meet after the show and I would kick his fucking head in. 18 hole gettagrips got to be used for something right? Well I didn't need to as, as soon as the next track started he got hauled into the pit by some Irish boys and they kicked his ass big time. That made me smile, and here's me thinking Metal had lost it's edge o)..."

Primordial recently posted a new trailer online for their forthcoming new DVD release, "All Empires Fall." Meanwhile, the extreme metal side project Blood Revolt that Nemtheanga handles vocals for will enter the studio to record their debut album this winter.

Check back every Tuesday for more tales from the pit.
