We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories from metal shows. In this week's edition of Pit Stories, vocalist David Sanchez of up and coming thrash band Havok tells a tale of a house show gone out of control.

Every time we play a house show in St. Louis, it has been completely insane. We haven’t played a house show out there in a few years, but the last show we played was in somebody’s basement. The crowd punched out the ceiling of the basement completely. They punched out every tile so the ground was covered with dust and pieces of drywall. Also at that same show somebody jumped up onto the ventilation system for the house and knocked it down from the ceiling, so that was on the ground, there was dust and debris everywhere, and then apparently somebody threw a bunch of kitty litter in the toilet. So the toilet had to be removed from house that same night. So every time we play in St. Louis something crazy happens.

Havok released the new album "Time is Up" today, and the folks over at MetalSucks.net are currently streaming the entire release online. Head over here for details. You can also check out Metalunderground.com's interview with Havok about the new album at this location.

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

OMG! I had some parties in my high school days that got out of control (rumbles in my back yard), but that party was complete chaos. If I were the host, I would have broken out the guns!
