Video Clip For New Song “Oddity” Premiered By Tetrarch

Buzzworthy metal group Tetrarch has been making huge moves this summer! The band is about to wrap up the current North American tour with metal giants DevilDriver and fellow support artists 36 Crazyfists, Cane Kill and Uncured, and next Friday, September 29, the band releases the new full-length album “Freak.” Today, the band premiered the new single/video clip “Oddity” over at Revolver’s website “>over here. You can also view the clip in the player at the bottom.

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 track list is:

1. Freak
2. Spit
3. Pull the Trigger (available here)
4. Mary
5. Oddity
6. Break the Trend
7. Please Let Me Be
8. Torn Apart
