In a situation where headbang
ing isn't enough, heavy metal and hardcore acts will resort to full body headbanging, shortened to bodybang.
A bodybang can be accomplished by planting both feet about shoulder length apart and using momentum from the upper body to propel the torso towards the ground.
In most cases, a bodybang can be used in a breakdown
or half-time part. Synchronization throughout the entire band is key for the full effect.
