Volumes Shares a Cover of Pantera’s “Rise” in Tribute to Dimebag Darrell


Metalcore band Volumes has shared a new single and visualizer for their cover of Pantera’s – “Rise!” You can stream the track on all DSPs, and watch the video below. The cover pays tribute to guitarist Dimebag Darrell who was murdered on this day (December 8th) 2004. “Rise” comes off of Pantera’s second mainstream album Vulgar Display of Power, released in 1992 via East-West, Atco Records.




Volumes are Myke Terry [vocals], Michael Barr [vocals], Raad Soudani [bass], and Nick Ursich [drums]. The band commented:


“Members of the band, past and present, have been huge fans of Pantera,” states Soudani. “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.”

Volumes strike a balance between twisted melodies and bone-shattering grooves. Selling out countless shows, posting up over 60 million total streams, and receiving widespread acclaim from a variety of sources, such as Alternative Press, New Noise, Rock Sound, Metal Injection, MetalSucks, Nik Nocturnal, and more, the musicians moved forward with a clear vision on their fourth full-length offering, Happier?


Volumes initially entered the scene with 2010’s The Concept of Dreaming EP, gaining momentum with Via [2011] and No Sleep [2014] before serving up Different Animals in 2017. The latter boasted the fan favorite “Feels Good,” which racked up over 13 million Spotify streams. Following the Coming Clean EP, Volumes delivered one of their best works to date with Happier?, which arrived in 2021.
