Revolver has teamed with Tetrarch for an exclusive white vinyl variant of their new album Unstable, limited to 100 worldwide. Order yours before they're gone!
Later this week, Tetrarch will finally unleash their new album, Unstable, after many months of hype. We already know that the nu-metal revivalists are capable of penning their own angst-ridden bangers, but now the band have proven their mastery of the genre with a strikingly gorgeous acoustic performance of Mudvayne's "Forget to Remember."
Although Tetrarch's particular strain of nu-metal is closer to the anthems of Linkin Park and Korn than the proggy weirdness of Mudvayne, the melodic standout from the band's 2005 album Lost and Found is right in Tetrarch's sonic pocket. For the Metal Hammer session in which they recorded the cover, the band swap their down-tuned guitars for beautiful acoustics that make "Forget to Remember" sound more poignant than intensely pained. Who would've thought a Mudvayne banger could sound this pretty? Watch it above via YouTube.
"Mudvayne are a band that was pretty influential to the genre in the early 2000s," guitarist Diamond Rowe told Metal Hammer. "Because of their hiatus, it is so easy to forget how prominent they were during that time but when you actually stop to think about it and listen to their catalog, there are a lot of amazing songs there. We wanted to pick one of their songs that still had some edge and grit but that is still one of their hits, and this was the perfect one."
Additionally, the L.A.-based quartet also performed an acoustic rendition of their Unstable single "You Never Listen", giving the stadium-ready scream-along a more supple exterior while still harnessing its tortured energy. Check that one out below to get mentally prepared for Unstable, which arrives this Friday April 30th via Napalm Records.
