Soundgarden Unleash New Single ‘Been Away Too Long’

What a fitting title for Soundgarden's brand new single, since for all intents and purposes, they had 'Been Away Too Long.' Diehard fans of the Seattle band have missed them for the past several years, and while the reunion, live performances and 'Avengers' song 'Live to Rise' have been rad and appreciated, this is the beefy, puts-hair-on-your-chest Soundgarden rocker we've been waiting for.

‘Down IV, Part 1 – The Purple EP’ – Review

Six songs from Down are better than a full album of tunes from many other bands.

No. 30: As I Lay Dying, ‘Forever’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs

Metalcore bands were a dime a dozen in the '00s, but San Diego's As I Lay Dying are one of the standouts of the genre for a myriad of reasons. The anthemic 'Forever,' from 2003's 'Frail Words Collapse,' is a showcase of all the elements that propelled AILD to massive success.

No. 13: Pantera, ‘Revolution Is My Name’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs

Pantera were working on their third decade together when they dropped 'Reinventing the Steel' in 2000, which would go on to be their final album, although they (and we) didn't know it at the time. 'Revolution Is My Name' was emblematic of everything metal fans loved about Pantera.
