When Legends Rise is the seventh studio album by Godsmack. It was released on April 27, 2018. It marks the band's first album away from heavy metal into a more hard rock sound. The album's first single, "Bulletproof", was released ahead of the album in February 2018.
As early as 2015, frontman Sully Erna spoke of his desire to create a new sound for Godsmack in their next album. He expressed his desire to change how the band had been lumped into the heavy metal genre, and desired to branch out into a more hard rock sound. He later described the album in 2017 as a "reinvention" for the band, as a "new chapter" juxtaposed against older albums, of which he described as "vintage classic Godsmack". The band worked with music producer Erik Ron for the album in an effort to help the band approach the album from a new direction. Erna described the album: "It was just about evolving as a songwriter. I wanted to stretch my wings even further, to use all of the experiences I've had writing different types of music over the years and apply that to finding a way to introduce a newer, fresher, more mature sound, while still maintaining the power of Godsmack."
The first song recorded for the album with Ron was its first single "Bulletproof"; the band was so happy with the result they worked with Ron on a second track, "Take It to the Edge". The band was so happy with the production sound added by Ron, that they decided to work with him on the entire album. Erna served as co-producer, as he had on prior albums as well.
Release and promotion:
The album's name, When Legends Rise, and release date, April 27, 2018, were announced on February 28, 2018. The band released the first single, "Bulletproof", on the same date, and as of May 2018, had peaked an number one on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart. The title track "When Legends Rise" was released as a single on April 13. In addition, the song was used as a theme song for WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event.
AllMusic: 3.5*/ 5
Muzon-Market ( MM): 7*/ 10 ( "Хорошо! Временами напоминающий лучшие треки Metallica, но со своим собственным узнаваемым мощным и насыщенным саундом, лучший альбом группы с двадцатилетней историей взрывает металлические чарты! на сегодня один из лучших релизов Heavy-Metal текущего года! Очень рекомендуем не пропустить!")
AllMusic generally praised the album, describing the sound as "shedding some of the bitterness, anger, and aggression...without that violent anger and creeping darkness...what's left is a band that remains hungry and driven by hope" and concluded that album showed the band as "reinvigorated, confident, and no less defiant than they were in 1998. When Legends Rise is a slight shift, but a highly enjoyable one that stirs the soul in unexpected ways."
