Hear Volumes Cover Pantera’s “Rise”


Progressive metalcore outfit Volumes have delivered a cover of Pantera‘s 1992 track “Rise“. Their take on the Texan groove metal band’s “Vulgar Display Of Power” cut arrives on the 18th anniversary of the death of Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott. The beloved guitar hero was murdered while performing onstage on this day back in 2004

Volumes bassist Raad Soudani commented:

“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.”

Pantera themselves of course returned to the stage this month for the first time in 20 years as part of an ongoing reunion tour.
