When you go to a rock concert, your main focus is normally on the band, the music, the vibe – especially if its a farewell tour.

But not for Lamb of Gods set – sorry Randy – because everyones attention was on the rock sign language interpreter, Lindsay Rothschild-Cross.

Thats right, this gal just stole the show as she thrashed out to the heavy metal band signing every word, chord and guitar riff going.

The ASL (American Sign Language) interpreter translated not only the lyrics for the deaf, but also the metal music by playing air guitars and drums.

She became possessed by the music and threw herself into every roar, scream and growl made by the legendary band.

Standing alongside the stage at the Slayer Farewell Tour in Austin, Texas, Lindsay was dressed in all black as an attempt to not take the attention away from the band.

However these attempts failed as she caught the eye of at least one fan – who uploaded a video of her online.

Freddie Ibarra who was at the concert decided to start recording Lindsay after a group of deaf people next to him were amazed by her talent.

The 48-year-old said: There was a group of deaf people next to me and it was incredible to see how much they were enjoying it.

The crowd did not seem to notice, but I was very impressed.

I had seen this at other concerts, but never on one side of the stage. It made my skin crawl with emotion.

Lindsay is part of Amber G Productions, who provides ASL interpreters for concerts.

She was one of the three people who took turns interpreting during the six-hour long concert last month.

Earlier this year, a Little Mix producer was sued by a deaf mum after they failed to provide a sign language interpreter.
