Today, we are thrilled to showcase the promising progressive post-rock band Bantamweight from Los Angeles, California, USA. In this review, I will delve into their new song, Fall Away, exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Bantamweight is an exciting progressive/synth/post-rock band that caught my attention two months ago with their latest release, Fall Away, which came out on February 19, 2021. Their musical journey began with the single Contact in 2021, followed by two more singles, Fall Away (2021) and The Weight (2021). I encourage you to listen to the song while reading the rest of this article.

Bantamweight has left a lasting impression on me, showcasing an extraordinary level of talent and creativity. The collaboration between these two American musicians goes beyond words, particularly in this performance. Their debut left me in awe, leading Metalhead Community to extend our full support to Bantamweight.

Fall Away is a remarkable composition that defies expectations, exceeding the standards typically associated with upcoming and independent bands. It is astonishing to consider that Fall Away is just one song from their debut album; these guys are only just getting started. The song captivates listeners with its contrasting elements, rich composition, and beautiful melodic and groovy sections. While many bands focus primarily on technicality, Bantamweight strikes a perfect balance, allowing the melodic side to enhance the album's listening experience while the technicality complements their live performances. While some may choose to excel in one aspect, it is the combination of these elements that truly sets Bantamweight apart, raising the bar in the independent music scene with their debut.

The American duo's instrumental prowess and musical understanding are truly impressive. Every aspect of Fall Away feels fresh and unique, defying any sense of routine or generic sound. This ability to stand out distinguishes great bands from good ones, and Bantamweight unquestionably falls into the former category. Fall Away deserves accolades not only for its instrumentation, technicality, and musicality but also for its intelligent composition, dynamic shifts, mood, atmosphere, mix, originality, and energy. I highly recommend watching their live studio performance of Fall Away by clicking here.

From a technical standpoint, Fall Away meets top-class standards in every way. The overall sound of the album leans slightly more modern than my personal taste, yet the mix is flawlessly executed.

Taking all these factors into consideration, I am genuinely blown away by Bantamweight's potential. They are one of the most impressive acts I have encountered in quite some time. Fall Away serves as a remarkable debut, and I am confident that we will hear more from them in the future.
