“Godsmack Sound Nothing Like Alice In Chains”
In a reply to Launch asking Erna how he feels the group is perceived by critics he replied, “I think the only misconception is that we were pegged as an Alice In Chains clone band at one time, which I don’t get. I don’t think we sound anything like them. I mean there’s definitely influences there, but there’s influence from Zeppelin, Sabbath and Pantera, and everybody else. It’s just that we’re all molded from everybody from our past. These are some of the bands that we grew up listening to, or enjoy today, and sometimes it triggers an idea. So, there could be hints of influences there, but that kind of got on my nerves for a while.”
And no, this isn’t an April Fool’s.
