TOMAHAWK's style of Heavy Metal/Rock was influenced by American Indian culture and beats. They played mostly original material with a couple of covers, including HAWKWIND's "D Rider", in which they "...made the synth "wind" sound by breathing heavily into the microphones!"

A popular highlight of their gigs was the two drumkit "Drum-Battle" between Nick and his brother Mick.
