For a city mayor to declare a "Godsmack Day" in the city of Boston is telling of the depth and breadth of influence the band has created in the metal music fandom and beyond. Godsmack was formed back in 1995, and they've certainly come a long way. Count three consecutive number-one albums, namely "Faceless", "IV", and "The Oracle" hitting the Billboard 200 charts. With 25 top ten rock radio hits, including 18 songs in the top five, Godsmack is touted one of the pillars of heavy metal rock.
Music critics have often compared and pitted them against their contemporaries. "Erna's singing style has been stated as "the snarl of James Hetfield", and "composed of dark harmony that sounds a lot like Alice in Chains". Merrill's bass style has been described as "bulldozer bottom with occasional slap-bass reverb". Larkin's drumming is thought to "worship at the twin altars of Neil Peart and John Bonham". And Rombola's guitar playing style has been praised as "guitars that sound like percussion instruments". [source: Wikipedia]
But the fans are unfazed. Godsmack has carved out their own spot where they mind their own business and create their own brand of noise barrage. And fans like it that way!
