In mid-1998, Universal/Republic Records signed the band to their label. Joe D'arco was dismissed from the band due to a problem with drugs and his consequent inability to perform live without making errors. He was replaced by former drummer Tommy Stewart, who returned after expressing a desire to be in the band again.[7] The band's first studio recording All Wound Up was re-mastered, and the finished self-titled debut CD album Godsmack was released to the public six weeks later. This lead to the band's first headlining tour, "The Godsmack Tour".[2] After the album's release the band went on the road playing club shows as well as playing at Ozzfest and Woodstock '99. This was followed by a tour in Europe supporting Black Sabbath.[2] Roxanne Blanford from Allmusic gave the album three out of five stars, stating, "Godsmack confidently brought metal into the technological age".[8] The album entered the Billboard 200 at number twenty-two,[9] and was certified 4x platinum by the RIAA in 2001[10] after being initially certified gold in 1999.[11]
