The 12th annual Maryland Deathfest took place last weekend and skulls were stomped into dust! The festival was headlined by pinnacle metal acts such as Immolation1, At the Gates2, Dark Angel3, Gorguts4 + many others, but it was during Crowbar5 s set where conflict momentarily brought the band s set to a halt.
Crowbar were part-way through the oddly beautiful sludge anthem Planets Collide when a fan jumped onstage. Security acted quickly and tackled the fan, but the security guard and fan accidentally crashed into frontman Kirk Windstein6.
After Windstein gave the fan a quick kick to the head and walked offstage to confront him, the Crowbar legend stopped Planets Collide to address the crowd.
Stop this f ing song! begins Windstein. I m so sick of this s t.
You ve got motherf ers like Randy Blythe nicest motherf ing guy in the world. Some a hole goes into his office, f s his f ing world up, and the guy almost goes to prison in a foreign f ing country. Who does what for a living?
Do I go into your office and f your computer up? No. You know why?
I respect you and I love you. Thank you. A lot of people think I m a d k, go suck one, motherf er.
This is about respect. My eyes are closed, I m playing my goddamn heart out. You could have broken every f ing tooth in my mouth.
Thank you, security.
In regards to the fan jumping onstage during our set at Maryland Death Fest. The MDF organizers/venue do not allow fans to run on stage uninvited. That s their policy.
They had barriers and security in plain sight to prevent that. If someone chooses to go against their policy, I have no control over that and at a show like this I m not expecting anyone to run onto the stage, especially during Planets Collide. So I m rocking out, my eyes are closed and then I guess security tackled the fan into me.
I was already on edge having driven 15 hours straight through the night without sleep to play the gig. We had no back up guitars or techs with us so If we broke a guitar or even a string, the set would have been seriously delayed or ended. At shows WITHOUT security or barricades if you decide to run on stage or dive off it, at least be respectful, get up and dive off and try not to hit into the band or break their gear and try not to break your neck or the neck of someone else.
Thanks for understanding! Kirk
It s been said for nearly a decade now: Everything changed after what happened to Pantera8 s Dimebag Darrell Abbott9. The Randy Blythe10 incident, which Windstein referred to onstage, is another prime example.
While it was the security guard s tackle that caused the onstage contact with Windstein, it s just another reason not to jump up onstage during a show.
In other Crowbar news, the band s 10th studio album, Symmetry in Black, came out today!

mufon.com1 A reported that hundreds of softball-sized red lights spun around his vehicle while driving home from work March 6, 2011, and that he had an encounter with two “translucent ” beings, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database. The man’s wife filed the MUFON report March 7 after her husband returned home “visibly shaken” and apparently with missing time. The wife stated that the drive home from the casino usually takes 90 minutes, but that the events began around 11:15 p.m. and her husband arrived home at 2 a.m.
The man was driving alone in his vehicle when he noticed the red lights about 11:40 p.m.
on Highway 63 about five miles south heading into Eagle Butte. “The red lights, about 100-200 of these red lights, kept going around the car for a couple of miles,” the witness stated. “They never got super close, like two car lengths away from me, but all around me.” A few miles down the highway, the man noticed that his car was slowing down.
“I was doing about 60 mph, but it slowed down to 40 mph, and wouldn’t go any faster. Then the red lights just disappeared. They didn’t fly off or anything, they just disappeared.
The car then went back up to 60 mph like I normally drive it.” When Highway 63 met a gravel road near a wind block experimental station, he noticed something standing along the road. “I got a feeling of goosebumps all over me.
It was tingly cold feeling all over me. Then I saw this thing on the side of the road where the gravel road meets the road and before I knew it, it was on the car. It reached in and touched my head through the windshield and ran its hand down my back.
My back got real hot.” The man described the alien. “It had an oblong head, really thin body, thin arms and legs.
It was translucent. It was glowing like a real dim light bulb cause you can see through it. Eyes were size of human, really long nose long in length.
It has a really big mouth. Its arms were like sticks. They were parallel through each other.
The two sticks looked like it was glowing. It was around 4 foot tall, but its arms stretched.” There was another being standing along the road too.
“The other one, on the left hand side of the road had a face like a beast, horrifying, ugly, looked wrinkly, walked like a squat about the size of a goat. It was glowing too, reddish brown. It was wide and narrow.”
The being along the side of the road disappeared quickly, but the alien that appeared to enter the car stayed with the man until he reached an area where there were homes. The wife said her husband’s head was hot and his demeanor was agitated when he arrived home. The husband also noticed that he had used up more gas than usual.

Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.SD, March 5, 2011 – hundreds of red softball size sphered circling car. MUFON Case # 28132. I am reporting this for my husband as he had to go to work.
He works at Employer removed/cms/tg for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as a security officer. When he came home last night he said, “it touched me!” and he was visibly shaken. It took awhile for me to get his story out, but I typed it out as he told me.
Below is his words. It should be noted that the usual drive from the casino back home takes 90 minutes driving normally. He said this started happening around 11:15 Pm but he didn’t get home until almost 2 am march 6.
He wasn’t even aware that this had taken longer than normally and when talking to him he wasn’t even aware that there was missing time. here are his words, “Sunday March 6 2011 Witness , name deleted/cms/tg security guard employer removed/cms/tg Driving home in car alone after work at about the red lights started about 11:40 PM might ve been later than that.
The red lights are like softballs, hundreds of them, real light and spinning around the car south of highway 20 and was on highway 63 about 5 miles travelling south to Eagle Butte. The red balls spun around the car for what seemed like a long time, it was real neat. The Red lights about 100-200 of these red lights and kept going around the car for a couple of miles.
They never got super close like 2 car lengths away from me but all around me After a couple of miles the car was slowing down. I was doing about 60MPH but it slowed down to 40MPH and wouldn t go any faster.
Then the red lights just disappeared. They didn t fly off or anything they just disappeared. The car then went back up to 60 MPH like I normally drive it.
I just thought it was kind of weird but kind of neat. Then I got to where a gravel road meets 63 one of the wind block experiment station.. soil erosion experiment (that s about 15-20 miles south of Timber Lake on 63) then I got a feeling of goosbumps all over me.
It was tingly cold feeling all over me. Then I saw this thing on the side of the road where the gravel road meets the road and before I knew it it was on the car. It reached in and touched my head through the windshield and ran it s hand down my back.
My back got real hot. Description of alien: It had an oblong head, really thin body, thin arms and legs, it was translucent it was glowing like a real dim light bulb cause you can see through it. Eyes were size of human, really long nose long in length.
It has a really big mouth. It s arms were like sticks they were parallel through each other the two sticks looked like it was glowing. It was around 4 foot tall but its arms stretched.
The other one, on the left hand side of the road had a face like a beast horrifying, ugly, looked wrinkly walked like a squat about the size of a goat. It was glowing too reddish brown.It was wide and narrow. And almost as fast as I saw it it was gone (the one on the side of the road)
The one that was on the car it seemed like it was there for awhile because tingly feeling didn t go away it felt like it was still there. The tingly feeling lasted about 10 minutes. The one on the car it got to the point where I couldn t feel or see it anymore, I didn t feel like anything was completely gone until I got to the bison farm (15 miles from Eagle Butte)
Once I reached there was more farm houses everything was gone. The car used a lot more gas than it usually does. It was over tank when started and used over a tank to get that far on 63.
I know sky was clear but couldn t see any stars.
Checked name removed/cms/tg for marks found none.
His head was hot and demeanor was aggitated upon returning home
