I personally have no problem with crowd surfing. Surfing at a Watain concert? Well, that doesn't seem like a good idea... and crowd surfing to a black metal band doesn't really make sense anyway. But in general, it doesn't bother me. Yes, I've had plenty of people land on me, hit me in the head with their boots, and climb up my back to get on top of the crowd, but I see it all in fun. If you want to go crazy to one of your favorite bands, go right ahead. If you're up front for a show, you should realize that you're risking getting landed on. Just as if you're on the side of the pit, you should expect people to run into you at full speed. It's a show.

yeah...well, I generally piss off the whole crowd at every show I go to, because I always drop crowdsurfers or sometime even stagedivers

I'm really skinny, weak, and uncoordinated, so yeah.

I've been on both sides of this argument many times, and if you are stupid enough to run full speed at someone at a show you should expect to go home in an ambulance. All rules that apply outside a show apply inside a show. Your paid admission does not excuse you from the laws of nature. Some people are simply not to be bothered no matter what, so mosh and dive at your own risk and retaliate at your own risk. Don't cry or snitch when you have to pick your teeth and blood off the floor for your short sighted impulsive decisions.

That's an excellent first post. Here are some of the photos I got! Best ones I took were of Erik since I was right in the center..

You can see the pig heads hanging upside-down..

Those are some spectacular shots. I'm so jealous of everybody seeing this show.

Looking at those photos, it makes me both jealous that other shows on the tour have gotten the full-blown Watain show, yet it's pretty awesome that I saw such a stripped-down version of it that really focused on the music.

I was right behind that guy that got kicked, it was lulzy.

BTW, I was very pleasantly surprised at the turnout for the show. Probably the biggest Seattle crowd I've seen other than Summer Slaughter.

Holy shit those photos are amazing

I need your help dude! Give me specs and shit! you said you had a DSLR...did you use extra lenses? If that's the case, then I'm out of luck. I've got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35. It's technically a point-and-soot but it's the size of a DSLR and I believe that it has manual settings too. Give me the scoop, I don't really know how to use those settings anyway
