First 'Wall Of Death' Ever Recorded With 360-Degree Camera TechnologyJuly 21, 2015
Video footage of the first "wall of death" — which involves splitting the expansive mosh pit into two sides of people who violently clash at the band's command — ever recorded with 360-degree camera technology can be seen below. The clip was shot during HEAVEN SHALL BURN's July 18 performance at the Resurrection Fest in Viveiro, Lugo, Spain.
In an interview with On Track Magazine conducted nearly a decade ago, LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler stated about the "wall of death": "We were doin' that 'wall of death' for awhile, we were doin' it through the Ozzfest and we played a show on an off-date of Ozzfest where we headlined and we did the 'wall of death.' And that night after the show we came backstage and there were two kids layin' there with broken legs. We went and talked to 'em and did our best to comfort 'em while they were waitin' for the ambulance and they were excited to meet us or whatever, but seein' somebody hurt after that kinda thing definitely made us stop and think about it a minute, and since that night, we haven't done the 'wall of death' again."
