You better sit up and take notice of the Atlanta-turned-LA-based band, Tetrarch, as they have only begun to make themselves known. The highly anticipated, and well worth the wait sophomore album came out swinging, pummeling its way through the airwaves.
Lead single “I’m Not Right” caught the attention of metal heads all over the universe, blasting through the metal scene and grabbing an even bigger fan base. They followed up with the empowering “You Never Listen”, also releasing a powerful video to go with it, only gaining momentum.
The album is heavier than their previous work, and they took a perfect approach by embracing the underdog, making this whole album sort of an outsider’s anthem. The anti-bullying feel to “Pushed Down” and “Sick of You” gives the listener what they need to punch back in a world that is sick of people pushing people around. “Unstable” delivers a message to those people that “if you come at me/just remember I am unstable” and “you won’t get in my head/you won’t get me”.
Diamond Rowe has been making a name for herself in the guitar world as the first African American female lead guitarist in heavy metal to be featured in media publications, and she shows her fierce, raw talent, proving herself throughout the album, through to the end with the eerie but powerful “Trust Me”.
The album is outstanding, both lyrically and musically.
