Another Animal is the self-titled debut album by the musical group Another Animal. It was released on October 2, 2007. The song "Amends" appeared in the closing credits for the 2008 zombie horror film Insanitarium .

History[edit]

During the writing of IV by Godsmack, lead singer Sully Erna encountered writer's block; so guitarist Tony Rombola, drummer Shannon Larkin, and bassist Robbie Merill went to the studio and recorded music. After writing almost 40 songs, only 14 were used. The left-over songs were then recycled by the members after they recruited Whitfield Crane of Ugly Kid Joe as well as Lee Richards, Godsmack's first guitarist, and Another Animal was born.[2]

Sound[edit]

The music of the album sounds similar to IV, but the vocals are distinct. The album features strong bass-lines and hard-hitting drums; it is predominantly heavier than IV, but includes a few softer songs, including "Fade Away" and "Interlude", which features acoustic guitars and a country sound.
