No. 21: Godsmack, ‘Godsmack’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

Godsmack, 'Godsmack'

As a new brand of hard rock was making its resurgence in 1998, one of the leaders of the movement was the Boston-based Godsmack. With drummer-turned-frontman Sully Erna leading the way, the band definitely had a feel for how to meld rhythm and power.

The aggro rocker ‘Whatever’ is a true highlight, but the band’s debut disc shows off so much more. ‘Keep Away’ became a live favorite, ‘Voodoo’ showed a dark moody side to their sound and ‘Bad Religion’ finished off the string of hits, securing the band’s place in the hard rock scene for years to come.
