We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Fredrik Johansson of Tuck From Hell shares a story of a good show and even better "afterparty":

Back in 2009 we played a venue in our hometown. The venue was crowded and it was magic in the air. The show was supreme but there was this guy in the audience that was so god damn drunk that he probably didn't even knew that he was there. At first he was just moshing and having fun, then he had a little to fun I guess, when he tried to crash the stage. Suddenly out of nowhere he punched a guy in the face. The police came and took him. Well the show went great for us and now on to the legendary afterparty:

Our singer Niklas Tuck Ingels has an old Dodge Van that was supposed to take us to the afterparty. We met some girl that was sober enough to drive it. Allthough the van didn't start, so Niklas (drunk as hell and butt-naked) stopped a guy and got his jump-starting cables. Yippi-kei-ey the van started. But the girl couldn't drive at all. The whole band, and some other people we brought along, were thrown around in the back seat. Ten minutes later we arrived to the apartment that belonged to a dude we met at the show. That dude started to play some classical music on his acoustic guitar and I went berserk, yelling that Petrus (lead guitar in Tuck from Hell) should play “Battery” instead. So after a while Petrus started shredding, and people went insane! headbanging, moshing and breaking stuff, we kind of thrashed the whole apartment except for his computer. We ended up watching some weird Japanese torture-films that he had, whilst drinking up his 400 dollar bottle of whiskey. Epic, Indeed.

Tuck From Hell recently announced some new shows in support of their upcoming album, "Thrashing," which is due out on January 25th, 2011 via Metalville Records. "Thrashing" can currently be heard in its entirety on AOL Music.

Check back every Tuesday for more pit stories.
