Godsmack May Make 'Drastic Turn' In Style On Next Album

(Gibson) Godsmack may take a different music direction on their next album. Frontman Sully Erna says that they are looking to stay true to their sound but also reinvent that style to reflect where band members are today.

"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," Erna told Gibson.com backstage at Louder than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky.

"I think we want to get away from being lumped into the metal crowd," he added. "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."

Erna spoke with me more about Godsmack's new sound and his beloved signature Sully Erna Les Paul Studio. Read the full interview here.
