Following the death of Chester Bennington, Filipino heavy metal band Slapshock paid their respects to the Linkin Park singer with a cover of the band’s debut single, "One Step Closer," at a recent concert.

"Let's celebrate Chester Bennington. I want everyone to jump," vocalist Jamir Garcia tells the crowd, just before the rest of the band joins in to perform the Hybrid Theory track.

Prior to their performance, Garcia opened up on Instagram about how much Bennington had "helped shape me and my band to what we are right now," writing, "It was truly inspiring to be able to meet him. He was such an important piece in my career. His voice is second to none it
carriers anger, pain and love. Rest in Paradise Chester."
