Shredfest Engage

Two packs of badass metalheads take diametrically opposed paths to inspiring euphoria

It's not that Killswitch Engage are humorless exactly—one of their guitarists, temporarily off the tour and laid up after back surgery, has demanded that fans mail him beef jerky to tide him over—they seem sincerely, admirably dedicated to the task of turning our adversity into redemption. Don't stop believing, in other words.

The black-hoodied audience does not, at any point, stop believing, instead finally forming that one massive, pure, iconic mosh pit, everyone rumbling in the same direction with the same blind ferocity, crashing into each other with reckless abandon. Communal rage begets communal euphoria. Way in the back, by the bar, a couple guys from Dragonforce casually saunter by and start picking up chicks. Let the high-five be unbroken.
