Today, TETRARCH is following up on their “Pull the Trigger” dual guitar playthrough video with another Gear Gods exclusive – this time showing off their gear set-up in an episode of “Rigged“. Take an insider’s look at TETRARCH’s gear here: http://geargods.net/rigged/rigged-tetrarch/
TETRARCH released their full-length album, Freak, in late September,which has since reached strong positions on several iTunes charts – debuting within the Top 200 chart, at #3 on the metal charts and #17 on the rock charts. This is an impressive feat for any band, let alone an entirely independent one.
The press and fans alike have embraced TETRARCH this year – marking the band’s breakout in 2017. Revolver Magazine praised Freak, stating that the album “…showcases a blend of intense riffs, driving drums, textural guitar tendrils and hooky choruses layered with soaring melodic vocals and primal, guttural screams“. Loudwire called the title track, “...a driving rocker with plenty of attitude and something to say“, and She Shreds pointed out that the album, “…unfurls as a collection of songs that show an appreciation for many metal subgenres, and highlight how TETRARCH has continued to evolve.”
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.
Stay tuned for more coming soon from TETRARCH!
