Pit Stories: Slayer Retains The Crown

We've been talking with bands and fans everywhere to get their mosh pit stories. This week, metal guitarist turned solo artist Jake Dreyer reaffirms that Slayer's pits are, in fact, the most brutal (not Katy Perry's):

The bands I have played/toured with have all been under the prog-metal category. Most of the time there is not a lot of pit action going on during our set. Majority of the people in attendance are musicians who stand with their arms crossed while their girlfriends appear bored out of their minds and have the "when is this song going to end?" look on their faces. So Unfortunately, I don't posses any good stories aside from what would be found at a usual gig. However, I do have some moments from shows where I have been in the crowd.

The craziest pit I have ever been in was at a Slayer show in Los Angeles. People were getting carried off in stretchers, bones were getting broken. I still have this mental image of seeing a massive shirtless bald guy being escorted out of the pit by two equally as big security guards. While the guy's ankle looked like it was twisted 90 degrees to the left. I was also made a witness to the infamous dude that head bangs and pukes at that same time...There is nothing like seeing a guy windmill and simultaneous throw up cheap beer all over the place while "Spirit in Black" plays on in the background. A visual moment I can now honestly say I crossed off my bucket list...

Metal guitarist Jake Dreyer released his debut solo EP, “In the Shadows of Madness,” in April of 2011, currently available through Amazon.com and iTunes. The instrumental EP showcases his many years of study under such masters as David “The Shred Demon” Shankle (DSG, Ex-Manowar), Chris Broderick (Megadeth, Ex-Jag Panzer, Nevermore) and Rusty Cooley (Outworld). Jake cites his main musical influences as Jason Becker, Paul Gilbert, Marty Friedman, Yngwie J. Malmsteen and Jeff Loomis.

“In the Shadows of Madness” also features Adam Sagan (Echoterra, Ex-Into Eternity) on drums and Noah Martin (Arsis) handling the bass guitar duties.

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

One Without Splits With Drummer

Gothenburg, Sweden based act One Without has issued the following announcement about parting ways with drummer Oscar Nilsson:

"After a few weeks of consideration, Oscar has decided that he wants to focus on playing only session drums with bands and will also be doing that with OW, thus, ending his membership of the band as of today. We support his decision as we felt that he didn't have the time and interest that we crave from a full member of OW, and wish him good luck with all his projects.

"He will be performing with us at our gig at Sticky Fingers (Gothenburg, SWE) on the 15th of July and possibly at Belsepub (Gothenburg SWE) on September 10th.

"The position as drummer is now open, send your applications to: pr@onewithout.com. To be considered for the position, you need to live in the vicinity of Gothenburg, have experience of performing and recording, and be wiling to work hard."
