Rivethead's "All Your Covers Belong to Us" Album Review

Lately this reviewer has been bored with what is called music these days. Where's the imagination, where's the creativity? So I've been on a cover kick, lately, reinterpretations of rock, reggae, bluegrass, Motown, you name it, redone in a completely different style. And that's where this album, All Your Covers Belong to Us, comes in.

Rivethead hails from Texas, USA.

Think NIN, Prodigy and Static X. Rivethead is metal-punk/industrial metal music, and they've shared the stage with the likes of Mushroomhead, Saliva, Crossfade, Powerman 5000, Black Stone Cherry, Trivium, and others.

It would be amusing, in my opinion, if they had called the album "All Your Covers Are Belong to Us", but that's just me. (Like "all your base are belong to us.") After only one listen, though, yes, it is true, very true. All covers do belong to them. It doesn't matter what song it is, or who originally performed it: Pink Floyd, No Doubt, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears. Doesn't matter, it's transformed into a metal song when they're done with it. They take it, crank it out, and rock the crap out of it, leaving it wasted and unconscious on the side of the road... until it wakes up a day and a half later, trying to remember where its pants and wallet are, and what's that funny taste in its mouth? Okay, okay. Maybe that's overkill, it doesn't rock that hard, you'll be okay if you listen to it. You'll be fine.

It's an experience to hear metal this hard that makes you laugh. Oh, think Dethklok, on Metalocalypse. It's like that.

Track List:
Run Like Hell (Pink Floyd Cover)
Hella Good (No Doubt Cover)
Sexy Back (Justin Timberlake Cover)
Toxic (Britney Spears Cover)

Tongue firmly in cheek, take a listen to them on CD Baby. Did I mention it's only $5 to download this album? Yeah, that's a deal right there. This album is available as MP3, MP3 320, and FLAC files.

What is CDBaby, you ask? CD Baby is a the largest global digital distributor of independent music, and represents over 650,000 recording artists, 100,000 songwriters, half a million albums, and more than 7 million tracks across 800+ genres. They've paid out more than $500 million to independent musicians and songwriters. You should check it out. And if you find you are not liking Rivethead, there will something to your liking on CDBaby. You just got to click around until you find it.
