More bands for Download


Download is trying hard this year, and well, the lineup is already pretty fucking sweet. Besides the three headliners (The Prodigy, Metallica, Black Sabbath), a bunch of other ones have been added to the annual Download festival, namely: Soundgarden, Lamb of God, Machine Head, Tenacious D (if you wanna see Jack Black be funny play music stand there with a guitar), Trivium, Anthrax, Devin Townsend Project, Chase and Status (if you feel like vibing to some raves), Devildriver

Wait, why the fuck am I wasting my fucking fingers when I can just post the photo. Make the jump and check the poster out, and don’t forget, more bands to be announced.


Chris Cornell is fulfilled

Chris Cornell seems to be very happy with the current Soundgarden reunion, calling it ‘hugely fulfilling.’

You know what’s not fulfilling? The fucking Big Mac. It looks good in the advert, but once you get it it’s all slimy and shit, you eat it and 10 minutes later you’re hungry again. So you get another one, and another one, until you get kicked out of planes for being too fat. Then you keep confort-eating because you are morbidly obsese, so fuck it, right? Might as well keep getting fatter.

So you go on and on and on until everyone around you laughs at you, then you commit suicide. All because McDonald’s fucking lied in their advert. Cunts.



Soundgarden album is ‘mostly’ done

According to a recent interview on Billboard.com, the new Soundgarden album is ‘mostly done.’

It’s mostly done, we just need to finish a couple of songs and mix it, so that will be happening probably over the holidays.

Read full article here.

See? What, didn’t believe me?

Soundgarden haven’t released an album since 1996, so they’re about as relevant as a VHS tape. But hey, Chris has a decent voice so we’ll see what happens.


Friday Top 10 : Best Soundgarden songs

If you were born anywhere in between 1975 and 1985, chances are you grew up in the 90s listening to Soundgarden.

Soundgarden formed in the 1980s and started gaining success with their third studio album, Badmotorfinger, an album where many (myself included) think it was them as their peak. It was the perfect mix of rock, grunge and metal — all packed into one and Chris Cornell at the time was possibly one of the best vocalists around. However, it wasn’t until 1994 that they became a household name. You coudn’t turn on a modern rock station without hearing ‘Spoonman’ or ‘Black Hole Sun.’

1997 was the year in which Soundgarden broke up. I was young and unfortunately never thought I’d get the chance to see them. I never imagined, in my wildest dreams, that they would return, but obviously in 2010 they announced that they were back. I felt like an excited 14 year old all over again and I was fortune enough to see them live a couple of weeks ago.

I recently just finished composing a Soundgarden top 10 list. Oh yeah, feel free to tell me that I missed out on certain tracks or that certain songs should be higher or lower. It might not of been as hard as an Iron Maiden top 10, but it was still quite a challenge.

Make the jump for the top 10 Soundgarden songs ever!


Saturday morning headlines!

Soundgarden have released tour dates for their upcoming North American tour. I grew up with Soundgarden so seeing them live is a no-brainer. However, my big complaint is Coheed and Cambria opening at the show i’m attending, while The Mars Volta, Mastodon and Queens Of The Stone Age will be at other shows of the tour. Lame. More information can be found here.

The trailer for The Big Four show at Yankee Stadium (pictured above) has been posted online and you can view it here. It was pretty cool, but the “Four of the heaviest bands of all time” slogan made me roll on the floor laughing my ass off  (what can I say, I’m more of an metal elitist than everyone at Metal Archives).

Melodic death metal act Arch Enemy have uploaded a new song titled ‘Blood Stained Cross’, which is from their upcoming new album Khaos Legions. You can listen to the song here. Oops. Sorry, I meant here.

Mötley Crüe bassiest Nikki Sixx recently told about.com “I think our best record is still in us.” — I like Nikki, I really do. I think he’s a pretty cool guy. But after reading that, I have a feeling he is back on the heroin for that interview and thinking it’s 1983.
