Speaking of Alice In Chains‘ “Dirt” in particular, which of course features the song “God Smack“, Erna commented:

“As I was transitioning from drummer into singer and starting this band, Alice In Chains really stood out from the Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgardens. There was something a little more mystical about them, and Layne Staley‘s voice was so good. It responded to tape so well. There’s some singers out there who are really great, and you record them and it’s just OK. And there’s other singers whose character takes to tape really well. Amy Winehouse had that: just a really strong presence on her recordings. With Layne Staley it was the same. They were really cool: great songwriters with a really cool vibe.”

Godsmack‘s new album “When Legends Rise” hit stores today, April 27th.
