Two Guy, Four Instrument Metal Band Punches Above Their Weight

LA-based synth-rock band Bantamweight shared this live performance video for their track Hellion, from their new EP Sounds + Haptics.

Bantamweight punches above their weight by doing more than just playing synths. Drummer Max Kelly combines syncopated rock drumming with complex keyboard riffs, while frontman Keith Shacklett plays bass, sings – and throws in some keyboard work for good measure.

After nearly 15,000 hours of close collaboration, the duo have telepathic chemistry, chops to spare and a unique sound.

This performance comes from a charity livestream organized by Polyverse Music. All proceeds were donated to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
