Song Review: Godsmack - "1000hp"
Fri, 06 Jun 2014 08:21:56
In a career marked by astounding anthems, Godsmack deliver their biggest yet in the form of "1000hp". The first single from their forthcoming sixth album for Republic Record is a bombastic Boston bruiser of epic proportions. Thrash guitars from frontman Sully Erna and six-stringer Tony Rombola ignite this metallic freight train full steam ahead. Shannon Larkin taps back into his punk roots with punchy percussion as Robbie Merrill's bass resounds.
All of the hallmarks of the band's patented sound remain intact, but there's a rock 'n' roll swagger to "1000hp" that remains invigorating. It's the kind of tune you could hear at sports events and during high-octane action movie set pieces for years to come. It's exactly how real rock should sound in 2014, and it's one of the best singles of the year.
Godsmack is back and better (more badass) than ever. Turn that shit up louder and go!
Listen to the teaser below. Full song will be debuting Monday and download it on iTunes Tuesday June 10, 2014!
