Yes it's true that Godsmack's influence spectrum is vast, but this foursome probably listened to these influential greats (Metallica, Alice in chains etc.) and created their own bigger and better sound to become gods of their own rage-energetic realm. This sound is alive. Not even to talk about Sully's well balanced voice seamlessly integrating with Tony's aggressive and rhythm-hungry six stringer. Their lyrics adds a further spark to the already rock solid sound. This CD has attitude written all over it. Sully, Robbie, Tony and Tommy...we salute you.

Godsmack's self-titled debut album from 1998 packs an aggressive set of one dozen emotionally dark songs, whose mournful lyrics sung by the groups powerful vocalist Sully Erna are very expressive. Reminiscent of heavy metal favorite Metallica and grunge bands such as Nirvana, Soundgarden and 'Alice in Chains', Godsmack has combined several styles to produce a very unique sound of their own. Formed in 1995 in Boston, Sully Erna (who is a practicing Wiccan) along with with guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill and drummer Tommy Stewart first received notice when people began listening to Godsmack's single "Whatever". Popularity grew with songs such as "Keep Away" and "Voodoo". My ratings for each song (out of 5 stars) are listed below:
1. "Moon Baby" (5+). Starts softly, but suddenly awakens to powerful guitar and bass, as well as Sully's dark vocals. Guitar aggressiveness later grows, as well as harmonized vocals.
2. "Whatever" (5+). Fast-paced, very aggresive guitar and potent percussion mix with powerful & melodic vocals.
3. "Keep Away" (5). Intense guitar takes center stage with the lyrics about wanting an exlover to stay away and features a guitar solo.
4. "Time Bomb" (5). Aggressive vocals backed by aggressive guitar and percussion take center stage in this song which also features occassional silent or near-silent breaks.
5. "Bad Religion" (4.5). Grungy song marked by aggressively plucked guitar & bass, as well as strong pitch changes.
6. "Immune" (4). Slower song that begins with a spoken sample before being swallowed by Sully's very grungy voice. Aggressive guitar comes through in the middle followed by a brief instrumental interlude. Good guitar riffs towards the latter part of the song.
7. "Someone in London" (3.5).

Okay, so this may not be an, and I quote, "original" piece of work, but it's still really cool. Sully Erna has a great voice, managing to growl somewhat like James Hetfield (like on "Keep Away") and moan like Layne Staley (like on the enigmatic but catchy "Voodoo"). Yeah, this album's good and heavy, but the lyrics could be more far-reaching. But hey, I don't really mind. It's a good "attitude" CD, and I just love to imagine screaming those words to the people I hate when listening to this CD. "Keep Away" is, by far, the best song on here, although "Whatever" and "Moon Baby" are probably the runners-up. My only complaint is that that little media thing at the beginning of "Moon Baby" is quite obviously a rip-off of White Zombie, but oh well, it's still cool. Oh, and there really doesn't need to be an explicit lyrics label, I have CD's with worse language that don't have it. Yeah, nothing bad here, so "do like I told you" and check out this CD. It really rocks.

Godsmack are an awesome band, but they somehow picked up a reputation of being Alice In Chains wannabes. I do detect an AIC influence, but there is an equal influence from bands like Metallica, Tool, and White Zombie in their sound. However, they have the ability to take their influences and create an aggressive, energetic sound all their own.
Frontman Sully Erna's vocals are often very intense and confrontational, which sets them apart from their influences. Many of the songs seem to express anger toward someone, possibly an ex-girlfriend, with the resolution often being telling them to "go away". They do this in many of their songs, which might annoy some people, but I personally find it to be stress relieving. Tony's innovative guitar work (he actually can play lead, which many popular rock bands nowadays are not capable of doing) and the well oiled rhythm machine compliment the vocals and awesome songwriting perfectly. The best songs on the album (good to crank up when you're in a bad mood) are "Whatever", "Keep Away", "Time Bomb", "Bad Religion", and "Get Up, Get Out". Highly recommended if you are tired of all the trendy rock that permeates the airwaves.

...and it never lets up. Although the final song on Godsmack's self-titled debut, "Voodoo", sounds soft compared to the rest of this blistering CD, it is a deeply dark dirge that probes the recesses of drug addiction and insanity. It is probably the most depressing song that ever came out of 1998. It is also one of the five greatest songs to come out of that year. No one ever said that true art had to be pretty.
To say that musically, Godsmack are somewhere between Metallica and Pantera is, however accurate, a way over-simplification of what it is like to play this CD. Sure, I may not want to hear it every day, but when I'm in the mood for something dark, deep, and heavy, this CD fulfills that part of me better than most others do (save for Black Sabbath's first 2 albums, of course). I think that Godsmack's true ability is not just how loud they can be while still remaining distinctively melodic (which they are); no, it's more in the way that they can so effectively project the dark themes in their music. They create such a vivid mood that you almost feel you can see it. You'd think that a big-name heavy-rock producer like Bob Rock or Bruce Fairbairn was responsible for evoking this masterful texture of sounds from this band. Nope, it was frontman and chief songwriter Sully who produced it: how many other metal bands sounding this good can say that their lead singer produced their debut offering?
My favorite song is actually the final dirge of "Voodoo", but "Moon Baby", "Whatever", "Keep Away", "Bad Religion", "Immune", and "Get Up, Get Out!" will also be duly (and deservingly) noted as classic rock tracks from 1998. This CD will go down in history as not just a classic, but as the one responsible for the birth of hardcore metal (some call it nu-metal) at the close of the old millennium.
