Volumes Celebrate Pantera Reunion with Djent Cover of ‘Rise’

Volumes Pantera

The Pantera reunion has been breaking the internet for the metal world with their first show already done and dusted and footage flying around already. Prog-metalcore band Volumes are celebrating Pantera in their own way and apparently with less relevance to the current reunion, having just dropped a surprise cover of thirty-year old single ‘Rise‘.

The cover comes after the four-piece’s 2021 record Happier? featuring singles like ‘Bend‘ and title track ‘Happier?Volumes‘ rendition of ‘Rise‘ is tuned super-low with their signature prog/djent flavour dripping right through it and vocalist Myke Terry channeling his deepest Phil Anselmo impression.

On the cover, bassist Raad Soudani comments:

“Members of the band, past and present, have been huge fans of Pantera. However, the inspiration to cover this song came lightly. I was at the gym, and Pantera came on shuffle. My thought process was, ‘Pantera rules. It would be cool if Volumes covered a song.’ Everyone else was down, and we went to work. We chose this particular album and song because the album is on its 30th anniversary, and ‘Rise’ speaks volumes to the culture of the world not only when it was originally written, but even today. It also rips. During the mixing process, we wanted to stay true to their sound, while implementing ours.”
