You never know what you’ll see at a metal gig. Sometimes near misses happen, like at a recent Trivium show. But instead of accidents, this year’s Copenhell Festival in Denmark saw at least one heartwarming event.

One concert-goer knelt down in front of his partner to propose to him in the middle of a Wall of Death during a death metal gig performed by Strychnos. The proposal was successful, and the audience began to applaud.

When the time finally came to start the wall of death, other members of the audience rushed in to form a group hug instead of the usual bumping.

The festival posted video footage of the event on social media, and you can watch it below.
