Any rock or metal fan who has braved the pit can show you scars, hospital bills or detail painful tales from experiencing a concert in the most extreme way. The risk can be immense, but when the floor opens up, there's nothing like launching yourself into the human cyclones known as circle pits.

In this video, we've compiled 10 insane circle pits that were caught on film. Inspired by bands such as Slayer, Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb of God and others, these concertgoers set the bar for creating unbelievable circle pits, even stunning the musicians onstage through all-out chaos.

Check out 10 Epic Circle Pits in the video montage above, and if you've never seen our collection of 10 Epic Stage Dives, watch that video below:
