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

Some fans have posted that Gwar has addressed Linkin Park vocalist’s apparent suicide, commenting: “Suicide is no joke, but Linkin Park sure is.”

Alright well GWAR is no longer cool, fuck that pic.twitter.com/UcdxlWNEFv

Gwar’s comment obviously lead Born Of Osiris guitarist Lee McKinney, to slam the band via social Twitter for it:

I don’t care if your band is a fucking gimmick… have some class GWAR. We don’t need your sarcasm. This community needs strength right now.

— Lee Patrick Mckinney (@LeeOsiris) July 21, 2017

GWAR kicked me off a tour for hurting my foot. I would have came back and sat in a chair to continue. They said no and took our guarantees. https://t.co/QNq7DkqtD7

— Lee Patrick Mckinney (@LeeOsiris) July 21, 2017

The tour McKinney is referring to was back in 2015 when he broke his foot. Quite a few people seem to have verified that Gwar made the comments, with others calling for the band to be ejected from the “Vans Warped Tour” due to the edgy nature of the joke.

Linkin Park Singer, Chester Bennington Dead of Apparent Suicide

Speaking on a personal note… I saw Linkin Park, well before they hit superstardom, at The Roxy… Heck even before they renamed themselves Linkin Park… The addition of Chester sent them to heights very few musical acts ever reach. He had a voice that many of us would give an appendage up for. That being […]

Details Of Debut Full Length Album “Point Oblivion” Announced By Darke Complex

Darke Complex will release their full-length debut “Point Oblivion” through Spinefarm on October 21st. The band has released the first song from the album in the form of “Void.” Watch and listen in the player below. The clip marks an intersection of music, fashion, and dark art.

Darke Complex deconstruct and re-constitute an arsenal of genres into an intricate and infectious full-length debut, “Point Oblivion.”

Distilling jagged alternative metal, booming trap-inspired production, electronic sheen, and hip-hop bravado into this landscape, the Houston, Texas-based quartet challenges the status quo for heavy music with a multi-faceted style, deep vision, and multicultural background.

They’re equally inspired by Slipknot and Linkin Park as they are by Travi$ Scott and Kanye West. First emerging in 2015 with their brash and brutal Widow EP, the group quietly built a fervent following, while garnering early praise from ARTISTdirect, New Noise Magazine, and more.

Then, everything went dark.

The band shut down the social media site, unplugging in a world where it’s seemingly impossible to do just that. The idea was to immerse themselves in the music. That’s how “Point Oblivion” came to life.

Now, the first single “Void” builds from cinematic synths and keys into a cybernetic guitar punch. Vocalists trade chilling bars before culminating in a sweeping and soaring refrain.

Welcome to “Point Oblivion.” The track list is:

1. Dead to Me
2. Nothing Within
3. One of Us
4. Abandoned
5. Detox
6. Marking Targets
7. Void
8. Memory Museum
9. Wounds
10. Cold Blooded
11. Out of Options
12. Erase
