On Tour with DevilDriver, 36 Crazyfists, Cane Hill and Uncured
New Album, Freak, out September 29, 2017
Buzzworthy metal group TETRARCH have been making huge moves this summer! The band is about to wrap up their current North American tour with metal giants DevilDriverand fellow support artists 36 Crazyfists, Cane Kill and Uncured, and next Friday, September 29, they will release their new full-length album, Freak.
TETRARCH lead guitarist Diamond Rowe recently sat down with Revolver Magazine to discuss Freak, what she is doing to defy the metal status quo, and how the band is making their mark as a new talent on the rise in an ever-changing scene and social climate. Read the article and watch the band’s brand new music video for their unrelenting, energetic new track, “Oddity”, here: https://www.revolvermag.com/music/meet-tetrarchs-diamond-rowe-guitar-shredder-defying-metal-status-quo
Diamond Rowe says: “I can’t think of a better song to come out on this record right now lyrically than “Oddity”. It is so pertinent to everything that is going on in our world right now. With this song, we wanted to take a different approach lyrically rather than have it just be a song about all of the hate going on right now and how everyone is mistreated. Instead, we made this song about youth taking a stand and being excited about making a ruckus for what they believe in. We did not want to play the victim in this song and we didn’t want anyone who heard it to take that meaning away from it either. We’re a band that heavily believes that it is possible to pave your own way, your own success and your own image and that’s how we believe people should conduct themselves every day. If you want respect, if you want to be looked at in a certain light – go out and raise hell.”

With one listen it’s clear – TETRARCH oozes raw, unbridled skill. The band’s new album, Freak, amplifies the band’s tried-and-true blend of intense metalcore riffage and driving drums with the dark vibes and haunting choruses of hooky modern hard rock. TETRARCH‘s most cited influences – ranging from bands such as heavy metal giants Slipknot and Trivium to hard rock darlings Mudvayne and Linkin Park – are evident but never replicated, as they stay true to their own unique mixture that appeals to any heavy music fan.
Freak was recorded with seasoned producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decaptitation, Allegeon, Khemmis) at the helm, who brought out the band’s profound heaviness without sacrificing the catchy, melodic edge that has hooked the band’s impressive underground fanbase. The resulting sound is crushing enough to fit on any heavy metal bill, but catchy enough to land confidently in commercial radio rotation.
