In the spirit of Braveheart, the heavy metal community has taken up the cause of resurrecting the timeless tradition of having two huge masses of bodies coming at each other at full speed in what is known as the Wall Of Death. The Wall Of Death is a form of moshing most well known through Lamb of God’s “Black Label”. At a concert the lead vocalist of a metal band instructs the crowd that they are doing the wall of death. The crowd then divides in half…each half made up of aggressive fans ready to tear eachother apart. When the considerably heavier or heaviest part of the song kicks in, the two halves of the crowd rush one another. As you might imagine, two walls of aggressive people colliding results in serious injury and sometimes death.
