Pit Stories: Vesperia's Crowd Takes Over The Stage

Every week we chat up bands from around the globe to find their favorite stories from metal shows. This week, bassist Morgan Rider of Canadian act Vesperia had this tale to share about the crowd taking over the stage during a Dimebag tribute:

We were doing a show in Ottawa a couple of years ago and it happened to be a Pantera / Dimebag tribute show. We knew about this show a while in advance, so we came up with a folk metal version of "Fucking Hostile."

During our set, the time came for us to play the song, so we invited some people to come up and sing it with us. Two seconds later, half of the crowd is on the stage, forcing all of us except our drummer at the time off of the stage and onto the floor. We played the song on the floor and the crowd moshed and rocked out on stage. It was really weird.

Vesperia recruited a new guitarist late last year and is currently in the process of recording a new album. Follow the latest recording updates and listen to the band's music at Facebook here.

Check back in again next Tuesday for the latest heavy metal Pit Stories from local and national bands.
