While a member of Godhead, Miller toured the world with Marilyn Manson, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Disturbed, GWAR, Slipknot, Rammstein, Linkin Park, and Jonathan Davis (Korn).[6] In 2002, Godhead's song "Penetrate" was re-released on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack under Warner Music Group.[4] The song earned Miller a Golden Record Award for sales. The band has sold over 250,000 albums worldwide.[7]
