Some twenty or so years ago, the concept of the Slave Pit
began with a group of aspiring artists and musicians located
in Richmond, VA. Inspired by the examples of Spartacus and
Monty Python, they sought to make their twisted visions an
entertainment reality. In the pursuit of this goal they had
birthed "The Slave Pit", a sprawling studio space located
deep within the bowels of the Richmond Dairy. This hulking
structure had been abandoned for years and inevitably had
been taken over by a sub-populace of freaks and violent rednecks.
Here the original Slave Pit collided with the music and madness
that surrounded it. A bizarre synthesis of widely divurgent
personalities created something that was called...and woe
to those who say this name...something that will always
But what the hell is the Slave Pit? It started as a physical
place but was always an idea. So what is that idea? That reality
is something that you build.
