Tetarchate are a band from Italy that plays an old school form of metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Symposium Of the Tetarchs".
The ep starts out with a very heavy and melodic sound along with all of the musical instruments sounding powerful as well as a mixture of riffs and solos before adding in thrash style vocals which have a rougher edge than most singers in this genre along with some death metal elements.
As the ep progresses the music goes for more of an old school thrash sound along with some blast beats being utilized briefly and on the 3rd track the music slows down a bit and gets heavier before returning back to a thrash direction and the guitar leads bring in a more melodic side to the ep and on the last track you can also hear some infleuences from traditional and power metal
Tetarchute stick to a very old school form of thrash while the vocals seem to have black and death metal elements while also not being a part of that genre musically, and the production has a very powerful sound along with the lyrics covering violent themes.
In my opinion Tetarchate are a very great sounding old school thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Scar" and "Chant Of the Forsaken". 8 out of 10.
