Rivethead is a Dallas TX band that’s dominated the local scene and is making waves as they make moves on a national level. Already the theme music for the Dallas Stars’ Power Play and 3rd down for the Cowboys, not to mention themes for shows like That Metal Show and MTV promos  are all Rivethead.  So to say Rivethead is going places is a bit of an understatement.  They released their ninth album, Fix Our Enemy on May 5, 2017.

Fix Our Enemy has a very unique sound to it, heavy yet poppy, sort of like Powerman 5000 meets Buck Cherry or some other unexpected juxtaposition. While not death or black metal, Rivethead, crafts fairly heavy tracks that are very “fist pumpy” and catchy.  Tracks such as “Start A Revolution” or “Better Get Up” bring to mind Drowning Pool’s “Bodies”, head bobbingly memorable but still heavy enough that they are capable of making a mark in both the underground scene, as well as being mainstream radio ready.  And let’s be honest who cannot relate to the drudgery of the mundane, which provokes growls from Page on the track “The Worst Day”?  

Fans of Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, or Drowning Pool will definitely want to add Fix Your Enemy to their collections.  The tracks are good, the energy contagious, and who doesn’t want to fist pump with your bros (or girls) every now and again?
