Perhaps the most bad ass and dangerous ritual you can experience in a mosh pit is the infamous wall of death. It's a true reenactment of war as two sides, split down the middle, charge towards each other with the hope of survival. If you're near the front of either charge, you're basically guaranteed to be met with pain, but with danger comes adrenaline and for these fans, the risk is all worth it.

There's some debate on which band actually invented the wall of death, but the consensus is that it was New York hardcore staple Sick of It All. Originally called the 'Braveheart,' the wall of death became a tradition adopted by bands such as Exodus and Lamb of God. All three bands are featured in our 10 Epic Walls of Death video, along with more of rock and metal's biggest acts.
