One of 2017’s biggest breakout metal groups, TETRARCH, have dropped a bunch of action-heavy new videos supporting the release of their latest album, Freak. Today, the band is treating fans to another new video for the title track, “Freak”.
Watch the video today!
Guitarist and vocalist Josh Fore tells Red Bull: “We wanted to make each song a different version of what someone might call “a freak”. We have the title track, that acknowledges it in some way, everybody has something that makes them a little bit of a freak in their own minds.”
Guitarist Diamond Rowe adds: “All the songs tie in to being happy with yourself no matter what others think. It’s, ‘I’m weird in this way but that’s what makes me, me.’ That’s something I’m proud of, and a philosophy I think more people should adapt.”
Freak is available to order now via iTunes, Amazon or Google Play. Merch bundles are also available via www.tetrarchmusic.com and the band’s Facebook page.
Upon its release in September, Freak immediately 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. 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. 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.
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.
