Have you ever wondered what Metallica would sound like if they were hardcore Ministry fans? Or, wondered what would happen if you crossed Disturbed with Rob Zombie? RIVETHEAD gives you those sounds along with influences from Static-X, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein and Marilyn Manson. Remaining true to their heavy metal roots ensures that the band's distinctive sound will never get stale and predictable. In order to keep the music fun, the band has metalized several pop songs including Sexy Back (Justin Timberlake), Hella Good (No Doubt), Toxic (Brittany Spears), Run Like Hell (Pink Floyd), ET (Katy Perry), Synchronicity II (The Police) and Smack My Bitch Up (The Prodigy).
