"Hellbangers" captures the vibrant heavy metal community in Botswana, Africa, through the lens of photographer Pep Bonet.

The book focuses on Overthrust, a heavy metal band, and provides a glimpse into the growing heavy metal scene in the region.

Over the past decade, the heavy metal community in Botswana has expanded, with more than ten bands emerging and gaining popularity.

The book showcases the unique and organic nature of this subculture, featuring tattooed individuals who proudly dress in leather and play heavy death metal music.

The inhabitants of Botswana portrayed in the book express their rebellious spirit and use heavy metal music as a means of critiquing society.

The DIY ingenuity of their costumes, which often involve harvested animal skulls and natural elements, adds a distinctive touch to their identity.

"The Hellbangers" explores the unexpected union between heavy metal and the Botswana community, illustrating how music, particularly heavy metal, can become a unifying and empowering force in diverse parts of the world.
