Live and breathe 80's metal? Watch for the debut release from RivetSkull in 2017!
RivetSkull is an echo from the birth of heavy metal. A reflection of a magical moment in time when heavy metal was born in the 70’s and 80’s. Evolution of the genre? Not happening here. This is the Jurassic Park of heavy metal, the regrowth of that same DNA that created the beasts that first roamed the dark valleys of Birmingham, Leyton, the foothills of the Cascades and the plains of Texas. If you are looking for the next new sub-sub-genre of heavy metal you won’t find it here.
What you will find is heavy, melodic and riff laden music with clear and strong vocals. There is a strong groove with prominent bass lines and tight fitting guitar riffs. The singing will take you back to a day when skill, melody, power and style mattered. Like good metal – you will feel it in your core as much as you will hear it in your ears.
Three people stirred together by the happenstance of the turmoil of life. What you hear is a reflection of our individual life experiences expressed in the raw emotion of heavy metal. Not designed to be current, cool or commercially viable. No aspirations other than to be true to what inspires us and then spill that on a stage or inject it in your ears for your pleasure or pain. We don't give a shit if we are doing it wrong - we probably are. This is how we want to do it. If you happen to like it, then thanks for your support.
Chad McMurray - Vocals, Bass and Keys
Mark Xavier Plog - Guitar, Bass
