We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week we hear from German metal band Emergency Gate. Guitarist Udo shares his wall of death experience with us:

It was the last day of the Chaos over Europe Tour 2009, on which I had the honour to support Kreator, Caliban and Eluveitie with my band Emergency Gate for 2 months. This evening was a special evening so our other guitar player Vlad and me decided to join Caliban‘s wall of death for the first time. So when they started playing their third song we knew from the nights before, that it was wall of death time. We went to the very first row where the Andy, the vocalist from Caliban saw me, smiled and said: "EVERYONE AGAINST UDO."

Well, it wasn‘t as painful as expected, but Vlad and me both lost our bracelets.

Emergency Gate recently posted an exclusive trailer for their new album "The Nemesis Construct," which is due out in North America on October 5th. You can also check out their official music video for "Point Zero" here.

Check back every Tuesday for more pit stories.
