5LB. SLEDGE is a Southern CT Hard Rock and Metal Band forged over a bed of hot coals, pounded in to Cold Steel. An aggressive, rude, obnoxious, say what you want attitude of writing. Songs inspired by actual accounts and life events. A unique blend of Hard Rock, Punk and Metal with a Raw Groove. From rib crushing riffs and battle torn percussion to good time party anthems. You'll find yourself singing along to catchy hooks and fist pumping rhythms with soaring vocals, heavy guitar, pounding bass and driving drums, 5LB SLEDGE is for you.

New Release!
