RIVET – Music Review
Our Comments -
Woohoo check out “Rivet!” these guys jam… Based out of Los Angeles California this four piece hard rock group is coming out to make a name. We have been listening to their music on the Official Reverbnation page to songs like “Bad Boy“, “Dirty Dog” and many more and just diggin’ it! “Rivet” comes to you like a freshly minted new-wave MotorHead reincarnate with some extra bonus tunage! Loving the vocals by “Sleight”, seeing him start up their song “HEY!” in their YouTube video rehearsal, this song has some power to it. The band as a whole, have a strong rhythm, nicely structured music, and the whole package can just cause a shredding mosh. If you haven’t heard of “Rivet” before now, we highly suggest you give them a listen.
Rivet being that they are based out of Los Angeles (the dog eat dog world), somewhat brings a new flavor to the table, mixing their old school influences into today’s music. In that specific music scene it i shard to stand out in the scene and I think these guys just may do it. We love the way they represent their influences in the music, and show their independence as artist at the same time, it’s an equal balance. “I’m just loving it!” As usual the Official details about these guys are below fan them now!
What are they doing right now? Here is their response…..
We are currently playing in the Los Angeles area and looking for studios to record our full length (13 song) record.
Rivet Official Biography -
Members: Sleight-Vocals, Mat Rile-Guitar, Tom Bielek-Bass, Sticky-Drums
Info: – Rivet is a riff-driven, no frills heavy rock band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band’s distinctive style/sound was created by their guitarist Mat Rile (MEDUSA, GRINDER, GROUND ZERO, S.O.S. , TRIP TRIGGER, etc). With Sleight (PSYCHO THRUST) raspy dirty-toned vocals & Mat`s grungy raw guitar tone – Rivet`s sound was born. Rivet has also recorded a 7 song CD featuring many of their best tunes. Now the band consists of two new members Tom Bielek (EOE) on bass and Sticky Stavinsky (ANESTHESIA, BLACK END ROOTS) on drums. Both of their unique style combined as a rhythm section adds a certain chemistry and a convincing “DEPTH” to the sound of Rivet.
Rivet delivers in everyway with catchy riffs, power, attitude and aggressive performance. Their music has a raw/pure sound that incorporates the influences of all the great bands from AC/DC, Soundgarden, Motorhead, Alice in Chains, Circus of Power, etc.
Rivet performed in many venues including the Key Club, Knitting Factory, Roxy, Viper Room, Whiskey a Go Go and the House of Blues on the Hollywood’s infamous Sunset Strip. They also opened for many national acts as well.
Rivet has been featured via media such as LA Weekly, Rock City News, Music Connection, and several cover features for All Access. They were also featured on the Adam Carolla radio show.
Rivet is now working on a new CD. They are seeking management for Major Label.
