Moshing

Recommended Posts

what the hell is up with this crazy new style of moshing or should i say dancing, with the flying arms and sh*t, i mean i got slapped in the face with a flying hand..

thats the kinda stuff that could start a fight..

maybe its just my opinion

nah its all friendly they dont try and hit people.

The porblem is there are people who are stubborn to dancing and people who are stubborn to moshing.

Its fun but at the same time its starting to be very elitist.

Tis friendly and has been around for the best part of 20 years.

Best thing to do is to watch the crowd for a bit and you`ll soon get it....

Watch the video for AFI's Leaving Song PT II....... most commercial video with MOVES.... some great roundhousing action.

hardcore dancing is suitable for hardcore bands....

and its nothing new... its just that in towns like fraserburgh its unheard of cos people there are still in the stone age

and its more suitable and looks alot better than people just running around pushing each other about....

it goes with hardcore bands and suits the music... like i cant think of any other kind of dancing that would suit the kind of breakdowns you get with bands like bleeding through...

its annoying when your trying to dance and some big metallica fan pushes you over onto the floor and you have to get up again and stay away from him.... it happens every week in moshulu...

just cos they are bigger and stronger why they gotta like prove it to everyone...

watch some hellfest or bleeding through dvd, or unearth vids, or throwdown or anything similar and youll see how its done...

my avatar can teach you a little too...

Hate to disappoint you buddy, but me and my mates were moshing in the Broch as far back as 95 when bands like White Deth and the original Twenty-Eight were on the go... I came out of the Station Hotel or Cheers with a black eye many a night!

In fact we got banned from the Fraserburgh Academy school disco for pressuring the DJ into playing "The Ace of Spades" and moshing like bastards, effectively trashing the social area.

Oh-Em-Eff-Gee you must be so rock and roll trashing a school that runs on tax payers money!

Fuck off.

"hardcore" dancing doesnt have to be for hardcore music as Ross stated Afi fans have notably took part in dancing at their gigs.

just to point out neither moshing, hardcore dancing or headbanging has its own music to fuck shit up to.

for example a nice healthy dose of both for unsanctum

I agree it did entirely suck shit, which is why we, as 15 year olds who had probably seen the Breakfast Club a few times too many, decided that that would be a good way of rebelling against all the bullshit, in restrospect it probably wasn't, but it was fun nonetheless.

I think I was at that gig, sam was a bit aff his heed in his younger days, bloody nice bloke though.

In fact it was usually him who gave me the black eyes.
