The deep drumming that opens the title track and first song on the new album, When Legends Rise, immediately fills you with the sense of impending doom, as many Godsmack songs tend to do. This made for the perfect opening song for Godsmack’s performance at Jiffy Lube Live on Sunday. A quick transition into a heavy guitar riff, and 15 seconds into the night, there is no doubt that Godsmack has put forth another powerful, rib-crushing album.
Of Mice and Men, the metacore quartet from Orange County, California, opened for In This Moment at The Fillmore Silver Spring on Oct. 8. Paivi took some photos of them in action!
