I fined it very strange that from all of this clutteredness I can only see about six faces xD. I couldn't imagen what it must have been like for you to be in that crowd. I know I wouldn't have the corrige to go down in there lol. The other thing that I noticed when I saw this is that this't seem like the people in it are creepy, you know? I would think that if I went to one of these concerts I would be scared of the people, but in this case no, which is the one thing I really like about this :). It makes me think I was missing out on something awesome.

I think this would be a perfect picture for a news article. It's just overall amazing, love everything about it. Congrats on getting first btw :D.

It's time for breaking the stereotypes! :D

I find it quite strange to see comments like this here on dA because people here are different. So I though. :P
I just want to say that the most of the people thinks that metalheads are creepy and sick people but actually most of us are just totally normal persons who just love metal and enjoy in it..
Naturally, you can always bump into weirdos on metal concerts, but you can bump into them on any other party/concert/whatever as well :D

And I can say you that you were missing out something awesome :D
The feeling of unity on this kind of festivals is just beyond the words!

That's all I wanted to say.
No hard feelings? :)

No hard feelings? Not at all. lol

I know what you mean. But it's just that the people in the picture just look the all same you know what I mean? Idk I guess I should be careful not to judge a book by it's cover then lol. I keep telling my self that and I never follow it :C

Yeah I'm sure I was. I don't go to concerts that often. And if I do they don't really involve a bunch of people crowded in one place. I'm also afraid of crowds xD;. But if there's a day when I'm brave enough I'll go to one.

Bye bye :)

Do not be afraid, it's an awesome feeling. :D
(I myself too do not like crowds and mosh pits, but it's worth the sacrifice :P)

That's a reason why I've never been. xD

I'm afraid of pigheaded guys kicking me in the face or something. I'm just a fragile little girl who likes metal. ;__;
megrandy's avatar
Yeah I'm sure it is. But I don't really have friends that share the same interest in bands. So it's kinda hard to go to something like that alone. But I'll go one day. ;)
