Moshers came to the aid of their own at a death metal concert in California when a knife-wielding man allegedly slashed another’s throat.

The suspect found beaten bloody outside a La Habra dive bar allegedly pulled a pocket knife on a man for pushing his girlfriend in the mosh pit.

“Obviously, that type of dancing lends itself to aggressive behavior,” La Habra police Sgt. Ron Hurst told the Orange County Register.

Cops found Adam Merrill, 30, unconscious in an alley outside La Habra 300 Bowl late Wednesday night where fans of heavy metal band Cattle Decapitation left him after a violent encounter.

It’s believed Merrill was dragged outside and wrestled to the ground for slashing the 26-year-old man’s neck with a pocket knife, the Register reported.

“Blood gushed out of his neck like a water hose,” witness Abraham Rangel told Vice.

The stabbing cut the concert show short when one of the venue’s staff members interuppted lead singer Travis Ryan on stage during the middle of a song.

Ryan appeared shocked at hearing of the crime that had just happened amid the crowd before him.

The man — who staff at La Habra 300 Bowl declined to identity to the Daily News — asked the audience to peacefully leave as police investigated the knifing that just unfolded.
