It was still under the name The Scam that the band around frontman Sully Erna, ex drummer of Tharsher Meliah Rage, played covers of Alice in Chains. Already in 1998, the self-titled debut of Godsmack had its personal style composed of alternative Rock and Metal with many riffs.

Hm, one of those uncomfortable albums you just can't categorize on the instant. The band from Boston relies on consequently heavy beats, crunchy rhythms and phat guitars. Groove metal? Possible. Ex-Strip Mind drummer Sully Erna stands behind the Godsmack mic and reveales a really golden voice. Ex-Lillian Axe drummer Tommy Stewart provides the power from the background. The songs are totally efficient, meaning that they crack your skull, flush your mind down the drain and take it's place! The guys do not do anything special but what they do is full of power, groove and lots of intensity.

On their self-titled major label debut, Godsmack demonstrate the commitment to furthering the evolution of metal. Godsmacks debut is a great Metal album from the late 90s.
Right out of the gate, the band garnered the attention of local Boston radio station and listeners responded to a new song called “Keep Away” that really started to take off. Not long after, another new song called “Whatever” and that too commanded the Boston airwaves. To say the least, it wasn’t long until the major labels came calling. After signing to Republic/Universal, the group then found themselves with a platform to translate their local success to a national stage.
This album has a greatest pack of songs, this is a cd that you want to recommend to any true fan of rock.
