Soundgarden reunion!

SOUNDGARDEN is a grunge/metal band seminal to the Seattle scene in the nineties and has recently resurrected to assault our ear drums with their hard rock genius. Their love for distorted guitars and their search for the perfect riff makes them stand out to me but their ace-in-the-hole is CHRIS CORNELL. As I stated this before on this site, CHRIS CORNELL is my favourite rock singer and so please take some time to go through these songs and see why I think that way.

Besides the 7 EPs and 4 compilation albums, SOUNDGARDEN has released 6 albums in their long career: Ultramega OK (1988), Louder Than Love (1989), Badmotorfinger (1991), Superunknown (1994), Down On The Upside (1996), and King Animal (2012).

8. Loud Love - album: Louder Than Love (LISTEN)

7. Spoonman - album: Superunknown (LISTEN)

6. Rusty Cage - album: Badmotorfinger (LISTEN)

5. Black Rain - album: Telephantasm (LISTEN)

4. Let Me Drown - album: Superunknown (LISTEN)

3. Hunted Down - album: Screaming Life EP (LISTEN)

2. Jesus Christ Pose - album: Badmotorfinger (LISTEN)

1. Black Hole Sun - album: Superunknown (LISTEN)


Since it's been so long since SOUNDGARDEN has been on the road, they decided to perform massively long, 1.5 hour sets, I guess to prove they still got the fire in them. Here's the concert set list of when they were in Toronto on January 25, 2013 - with no opening act, just pure grunge/metal rage from all over their discography.
