Things To Do In Metal Concerts
We’ve discussed what not to do in metal concerts. Now we’ll discuss what to do in metal concerts. Here are the details.
Having fun is the main purpose of going out to a concert and no one is the exception. Whether it’s headbanging to the beat or going deep into the mosh pit hitting each other with your shoulders. Or, you can headbang with other people in the moshpit in a synchronized way. As long as you have fun and understand people have boundaries, there’s no problem in having fun while you hug each other.
2-Interact with people
Metal concerts are really loud and interacting with people can be a hard thing. But you can always interact with people during concert breaks, concert lines, and before the concert begin. While metal concerts are stereotyped as the most unfriendly environments, people are actually way friendlier as long as you be respectful, understanding, and not fighting with other people. I even had good friendships in metal concerts. And you can as long as you be a normal respectable person.
The bad part of metal concerts is that there is no shortage of drunk people who drank for hours before the metal concert to have a greater time. But they generally don’t. Instead, they either get ridiculed by the crowd or they become waste in the toilets trying to get rid of the alcohol in their system. Either way, stay safe and drink responsibly.
4-Don’t attack people because they mosh with you
This is the side effect of being drunk in concerts. While metal concerts are friendly, peaceful, and aggressive in mosh pits and walls of death, drunk people can hit someone or fight with if they really got high in the first place. Even more, nearly all fights occur because of irresponsible drinking and the results can be fatal in most situations. Moreover, don’t attack someone if they push you over in the mosh pit where physical contact is at top.
5-Pick people up if they fall at moshpit/Wall of death
While mosh pits and walls of death are common in metal concerts, people can lose their balance and falls to the ground for various reasons. Because of the risk, they’re involved in, they can be stomped upon from different people by mistake as they play depending on the beat of the music. But they generally pick people up as soon as they fell to the ground. Still, a short time might be needed to realize people fell down and people not stomping on them nearly all the time and they might not be understood that they fell down. For the safety of others, just pick people up if they fell down while moshing.
