Musical expression is something we indulge in on a daily basis, but moshing surely has to be accounted for as one of the most violent and peculiar ways to do the same. The recently concluded Melbourne and Adelaide legs of the annual Soundwave Festival witnessed some of the most aggressive moshpit rituals in the recent past. Check them out below:

The festival is being headlined by some realΒ hall-of-famers including Slipknot, Judas Priest, Marilyn Manson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Incubus and a horde of other big names.
