Silverchair's debut album, Frogstomp, faithfully follows the alternative rock tradition of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, which means that the group of Australian teenagers winds up sounding not like their idols, but like Stone Temple Pilots and Bush. For their age, their instrumental capabilities are quite impressive, as the guitars and vocals growl with the force of rockers in their early 20s.
This album was originally released in Australia in early 1995, when the members were only 15 years of age, by Murmur Records and Epic (USA), reaching number one on the album charts. Frogstomp has been certified double platinum by the RIAA.
Hard and heavy rock with vocals and guitar by Daniel Johns, a teenager with a voice that bears more than a slight resemblance to Eddie Vedder's. That's a plus when you've got the songwriting talent that is very apparent in the songs that comprise Frogstomp.
