Tales From The Pit: Standing Up For The Ladies
Band Photo: Omega Crom (?)
We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Johnny K from Vancouver's Omega Crom shares a pair of stories from shows he's attended:
Cannibal Corpse at Studebakers, some dude grabbed my friend Angel's tits, she was getting pissed off so me and my friend Ryan were moshing around and came down the stairs from the bar with our arms locked together and clothes lined this dude and bent him backward over the edge of the stage, needless to say he didn't bother her again. Later on I was headbanging forward as the guy in front of me was headbanging backward and I bashed the bridge of my nose off the back of his head, ouch.
Megadeth at Studebakers the first show they played without Marty I was in front row and center. This nice girl comes up before the show and says you look strong you should protect me. So I put her between my arms. When Megadeth came out the crowd pushed forward so hard I couldn't hold the weight and I was being crushed against the rail and this girl was getting crushed by me. After Holy Wars ( the first song) the bouncers clued in and pulled her outta there, never saw her again. I stayed there the entire show and my ribs were broken afterwards, it was worth it.
Omega Crom is currently touring Canada and will unleash their debut album "Blood, Steel & Fire" on April 5th via Reversed Records. You can download a free MP3 of the song "Battlefield" off the new album here.
