Pit Stories: The Ranch Bowl Rafter Party

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week our Pit Story comes from Alex Oden of Black Epiphany and Mortiferous Scorn. Alex shared the following tale of fans taking the party just a bit too far at the Ranch Bowl in Omaha:

I think the craziest thing I’ve ever seen in concert was at this club in Omaha called the Ranch Bowl. I’m on stage and I look up and there were kids jumping on stage running around and diving off. At one point there must have been ten or fifteen kids on stage running into us and everything on stage.

I had to guard my amp and guitars from them while still trying to play music. Finally some security got up there and started getting the majority of the fans off the stage. Then towards the end of that same show I looked out into the middle of the mosh pit and see a guy hanging from the rafters on the ceiling. The Ranch Bowl in Omaha was by far my favorite place to play.

Black Epiphany is currently in the process of recording a new full-length album. You can also download the band's "Mocking the Dead" album for free at this location. Alex Oden also recently conducted an interview with Metalunderground.com, which can be found here.

Be sure to check back every Tuesday for more pit stories.
