LIVING: CD REVIEWS - GODSMACK Faceless (Republic).

GIVEN the current state of affairs in Iraq, Boston-based metallers Godsmack may come to regret the battlefield gunfire that ushers in the opening riff-laden track on their third album. Straight Out Of Line proves to be a Black Sabbath clone, revealing just how influential Ozzy & Co have been to a whole new generation of bands. From there on in there are strong hints of Metallica, particularly on the ripsaw Changes and I Stand Alone, the latter plucked from the Scorpion King movie soundtrack. They vary the formula just once, adding an Eastern lilt to Serenity, by far the best cut in the set.
