#DiamondRowe is the lead guitarist for the up and coming #TrashMetal band #Tetrarch who has made a notable impact in her time in the public eye. Shouldering the pressures of being a woman in the male dominated genre of #Metal. Her undeniable rhythm and lead abilities have made believes of the rudest of skeptics. #BlackWomenInMetal #BlackHistoryMonth
