We catch up with bands and fans all over the world to get their best pit stories from metal shows every week. This time around bassist Kent Haines from Australian act Lynchmada shares the following tale of a missing leg that went crowd surfing:

We were playing an all ages venue in Brisbane City called the Lions Den where bands such as Parkway Drive and The Amity Affliction also cut their teeth.

It's a cranking moshpit with kids crowd surfing and the venue was packed to the brim at about 300 people inside this hall, when I see what looks like a crutch being passed through the audience like a crowd surfer. At this point I was thinking 'Wow, someone who is on crutches must be pretty game going in THAT pit!' Anyway, it finally lands on the stage and our singer picks it up and holds it aloft. It ain't no crutch, it was someone's false leg! To which we were all in hysterics once we realised what it actually was, so he yells out in between laughter "Does anyone own this?"

We see this taller kid hopping through the crowd laughing with his hands out, and low and behold the guy only had one leg, his friends had taken it off him as a joke (with friends like that, who needs enemies right?), but he was having a great time anyway so I guess it was OK. Leg was returned promptly and a fun time was had by all. The end.

Lynchmada released the band's latest album "To the Earth" last year, and you can check out tracks from the release by heading over to the group's Facebook profile here.

Be sure to check back in again next Tuesday as metal fans and band members share their favorite pit stories.
