Form of moshing most well known through Lamb of God's "Black Label". At a concert the lead vocalist of a metal band instructs the crowd that they are doing the wall of death. The crowd then divides in half...each half made up of aggresive fans ready to tear eachother apart. When the considerably heavier or heaviest part of the song kicks in, the two halves of the crowd rush one another. As you might imagine, two walls of aggressive people colliding results in serious injury and sometimes death. For this reason, many bands have been sued for calling the wall of death, so modern walls of death are formed not due to instruction, but through serious fans who know what to do when the song in question is played. This is a mosh meant to be done a metal shows...not a hardcore dance. A wall of death at an emo/hXc show is not a true wall of death.
