Freebase

  1. Moshing

    Moshing, also known early on as “slamdancing”, is a style of dance whose participants push or slam into each other. It is most associated with “aggressive” music genres, such as hardcore punk and numerous styles of metal. It is primarily done to live music, although it can be done to recorded music. Variations of moshing exist, and can be done alone as well as in groups. Moshing usually happens in a “pit” and is intended to be energetic and full of body contact. Offshoots are “pogoing” and the more extreme wall of death, and are typically done in an area in the center of the crowd, generally closer to the stage. While moshing is seen as a form of positive feedback or expression of enjoyment, it has also drawn criticism over dangerous excesses occurring in offshoots. Injuries have been reported in mosh pits, and a few deaths have occurred in a “Wall of Death”, an offshoot that developed when slamdancing was adopted at metal shows from its origin at punk shows.
