Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil made a statement years ago that is blasphemous to headbangers. He once said that the band wanted to sound like "Black Sabbath without the parts that suck." Wait, what? There are parts of Sabbath that suck? Who knew. See what we meant about blasphemy?
Soundgarden unleashed 'Live to Rise' -- their first 100 percent new recording in 15 years -- yesterday (April 4) and if it wasn't what you expected, don't worry.

What will it sound like and when will it drop?
Soundgarden went on hiatus in 1997 but it was believed that the band had just broken up. Singer Chris Cornell, who fronted Audioslave in between the hiatus and the band's return to activity, recently opened up about the semantics of "indefinite hiatus" versus "breaking up." With the benefit of hindsight, Cornell admitted that the band members should have used different terminology in order to make navigating the murky "Soundgarden are currently inactive" waters more manageable for everyone involved.
