Godsmack Preparing To Drop New Album, "1000 Horsepower"

GODSMACKWhether or not you consider them to be metal (which they are 100%... if not because of their music, it's because of their attitude towards life), Godsmack is fucking awesome and have some of the chillest and most badass material ever.

Frontman Sully Erna in particular is one of my favorite people. He can rock guitar, drums, and piano. To top it all off, he's a practicing Pagan, though he'll never say that in an interview (he doesn't want to be the "poster boy for witchcraft", which I can understand entirely). It did, however, influence the song "Spiral".

Anyway, enough about that - let's get to the good stuff. Godsmack will be putting out an album entitled 1000 Horsepower, which will make for their sixth studio effort, according to Blabbermouth.

They haven't given us an official release date yet, but chances are it'll be nearer the end of the year. We can expect a new single as well as a few tour dates sometime in August, so chances are we'll know more at or around that time.

Sully Erna told The Pulse of Radio:

"This one just became a little bit more raw, a little bit more open. The writing was a little freer. The production is really kind of raw and in your face, and the songs, man — I'm really, really excited about these songs. And I have to tell you honestly, I wasn't that excited about writing this record at first."

I'm liking the sound of that! I wonder if he went in a heavier direction, or a more harmony-based direction. Either way, it's bound to be a solid album.
