We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories from metal shows. This week's pit story comes courtesy of Jeannie Saiz from sludge metal trio Shroud Eater, who shared the following story of a bar room brawl.

At one of the last gigs we played, the evening started with two ladies at the bar breaking out into a sudden brawl - bar stools to the face and everything! As the second band of the night played, there was a whirlwind of like six fights breaking out at once. People were jumping on the bar to get out of the way and the cops showed up, lights went on, and the show almost got canceled on the spot as you can imagine the owner was pretty upset.

Luckily, we had an awesome friend who helped us book the show talk to the owner and he let us play. We did a killer set amidst some high tensions, so it was definitely a crazy evening.

Shroud Eater is currently streaming the entire debut album "ThunderNoise" online via the band's
Band Camp profile. You can also check out Metalunderground.com's recent interview with Jeannie at this location.

Check back next Tuesday as we share more Pit Stories.

The only times I have seen something like this happen at a show was when guys from FSU showed up, they always ruin a good time
