Is This New GODSMACK Song The Drastic Turn The Band Promised? (Nope)
During a recent interview, Godsmack frontman Sully Erna warned fans that the band's new music will be a radical departure saying:
“We feel that on this new record we’re going to write next year, we may just completely take a drastic turn in what kind of style we want to pull out.”
"I think we want to get away from being lumped into the metal crowd. I think we're coming a lot more back to our roots now, so on the new record, I think we're going to try to mix things up and get to a place where we're not going to hurt the integrity of the band but maybe go in a more rock 'n' roll direction."
Well, the band just unveiled their new single, "Inside Yourself" and while Erna is not yarling as much as in year's past, is it much of a drastic turn in the band's sound? Take a listen:
I say no. If I was in my car and this randomly came up on the radio, I would immediately recognize it as Godsmack. "Inside Yourself" is a standalone single and no news of a full-length has yet been announced. We'll keep you posted.
