Godsmack - IV album cover

Godsmack have always been one of my favorite Metal bands. I always loved their attitude and their fucking heavy music! Not to mention their great video clips! This time I was the one to get their brand new CD for review. Even though I am a great fan of the band, I will try to be as objective as possible. At least I will try...
Godsmack were born in 1995 by Sully Erna (ex-Meliah Rage), Robbie Merill, guitarist Lee Richards and drummer Tommy Stewart (ex-Lillian Axe). Godsmack have released four full-length albums (with this one being their fourth) and one acoustic EP. They have also contributed to soundtrack CD's like they did in the Scorpion King OST with the song I Stand Alone.
Godsmack's music is influenced by Stoner, Heavy and Nu Metal. They are characterized by their catchy style and their incredible frontman's unique voice. Their songs are simple and don't require an experienced listener. They are not the band that you have to listen to many times in order to completely understand their music. They are the band that you will love or hate! There is no way you can avoid singing the choruses along! They are also highly recommended to the Load (1996) and Reload (1997) era, Metallica fans. They have even toured together for eleven months if I am not mistaken! Heavy production that gives the album just what it needs, raw power! Fuck! This album IS too damn good! I really don't have the words to describe it! If you know Godsmack, you know what to expect! If you don't, you still haven't come across a band with this heavy, street attitude!
Just fuck my review and judge yourselves! This album must NOT be absent from your collection! And remember, if you buy it and put it in your CD player, play it as loud as you can! Only then you will witness what heaviness is!
