#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
#NowPlaying We Are the Hunters by Tetrarch, guitarist Diamond Rowe makes this #BlackWomenInRock. This is a fanstastic live band
The show last night was incredible. Thank you for everyone who came out. Atlanta never disappoints us!
