1000hp by Godsmack
Released: Aug 2014
Label: Republic Records
When, on the self-titled opener, Sully Erna howls, "Time to rewind, back to 1995, when we were nothing," the frontman isn't kidding. Godsmack's sixth album, 1000hp, sounds like a long-lost collection of recordings from the mid-'90s. The band made a wise move. Rather than slather their jams in flavor-of-the-month EDM beats in an embarrassing attempt to stay "hip," the Boston rockers instead go back to basics: riff-raging post-grunge for bros. Godmack are, in fact, so '90s that on "Turning Into Stone" they even dust off that weird acoustic-guitar sound Alice In Chains busted on Jar of Flies.
